Death on Mars

ABC has cancelled Life on Mars. Can’t say I’m shocked. I was actually still watching, but it was at the bottom of my to-watch pile. It was something to have on while I wasn’t paying much attention. Some of the moments were good, some of the texture was good, but instead of focusing on the fish-out-of-water aspects or just doing the 1970s cop thing, it was far too focused on the show’s mythology, on the vast mystery of why this cop was suddenly in the 1970s. Boring, particularly at the point when all we’re being given is signs that it’s soooo mysterious and complexicated! Didn’t care, didn’t care, didn’t care. (Having said that, it’s actually a good thing that the network is letting them make one last episode to reveal What Was Going On. It’ll make the DVD set better, and it will help keep people from being discouraged from watching the next mythology show. Goodness knows there are enough unanswered mystery shows laying around.)
