is there life on mars?


...I don't know when I'll have time to thoroughly process this, much less write as huge a reaction post as I want to, but...I just finished series 2 of Life on Mars.

I'm neither shocked, nor annoyed, nor overly impressed by the ending, except that it felt artistically quite right, and it's making me very, very thinky about my own life. (I am a lot like Sam Tyler, and therefore I would get philosophical about this anyway, but the specifics have really, really grabbed me.)

So. Awesome show. More comments later. (If you want to bring up something in the comments here, go for it; everyone who hasn't seen it, 'ware spoilers.)
