Life on Mars this week was very good. While last week I had a few issues, this time I wasn't disappointed at all. I think it did dip it's toe in the 'is this man barking mad' water, and how that madness affects the people around him, though I think Annie forgave him rather too readily. Conversely we were reminded that when you live in a violent world, your choice is not how to change the world, but how to exist within it. I understand, too, that the character of Gene can be seen as interesting as an intelligent man who is working through that dilemma.
