I’m starting Life on Mars. I’ve only ever seen two episodes and they were all kinds of emotional, so I’m scared I’m gonna end up having my heart ripped out by a TV show. Again.
However, the pilot episode has David Bowie playing on it, so…
Here I go again!
Well, three quick things.
Firstly, WTF is wrong with this inspector woman? How has she survived working in Homicide? She has ZERO effing survival instincts. If looney Uncle Billy was found skulking outside the bathroom door and then creeped up on me like he did her, he’d get a punch in the throat. What he WOULD NOT get would be a private interrogation in the attic, away from the rest of the household.
Second: why is Annie being such a moron? Ok, so she doesn’t want to believe that Mitchell had anything to do with the Box Tunnel Twenty, so why doesn’t she just LEAVE IT THE HELL ALONE? Really, Annie? Really?
And the third thing—and the least important but I have to vent it because I was talking to my friend Gator about raging, rampant hormones—is the fact that Mitchell, when all is said and done, is rather scary. He’s kinda like a Compsognathas (the little tiny dinos from Jurassic Park II), in that at first you’re like, “D’awww! Lookit how cute! Look at his smile. He’s so cute.” and then BAM! he pounces and shreds your flippin’ face off. That being said, I’d like to bring up the fact that I have major villain issues, so while sinister Mitchell IS really scary, he’s still sexy as all get-out.
Ok, I have half of this episode still to finish. I think it’s gonna go downhill quickly, folks. And scanning the tags hasn’t alieviated any of my fears about what happens on the finale.
I know just enough to be terrified for Mitchell. And somehow, George.
Wish me luck.
