I think [livejournal.com profile] scoreboard will really appreciate this one:

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aelfsciene for pointing me there!

And the greatest Life on Mars opening sequence ever:

Somebody really needs to make the Sam and Gene figures from this, I would definitely break my no new toys rule for them as well.

Just watched the fourth episode of season two Life on Mars and all I can say is that it's a good thing I'm already bi- 'cause if not I'd be totally gay for Annie right now. How anyone can resist her in this episode would defy all known laws of nature. She's Aphrodite on a clam shell, Marilyn on a subway grate, cute, disarming and "come fuck me" hot all at the same time. And no it wasn't just the scene where she's in a red teddy holding a whip that convinced me of it.

The best part is that the actress isn't some twig-like Hollywood type, not the sort who'd be told the time of day in American tv. Fortunately the British seem to know better, and I'm utterly, grovelingly happy they do. Wow...just wow.

The episode overall was well plotted, had sufficient Sam angst to please me, and great character moments. Excellent episode, definitely my fave of the season so far, and now I'm sad there are only a few more to look forward to.

If you're not watching this show you seriously need your head examined.

But goddamn, this Life on Mars fic grabbed me right from the start and didn't let go:

When Sam’s eyes finally opened, he had a mouthful of shag carpet and the bulk of Gene’s weight pinning him to the ground, the man’s cigarette-soaked breath hot and heavy on the back of his neck. His head was spinning, and on top of him Gene reeked of his own mixture of booze, gunpowder and bad aftershave.

It wasn’t as romantic as it sounds.

It's "Give the Other Fellow Hell" by [livejournal.com profile] aureliapriscus and you should go read it now. It's not an episode, but dammit, it should be.

Yeah so I was going to do some writing but [livejournal.com profile] moonlightnrain and I got to talking about Life on Mars, and then I had to check out the On Demand offerings 'cause they were supposed to have some little extras tacked onto each episode (they do, but they're very little). And then I had to go looking for new LoM stuff on LJ 'cause...I'm slightly obsessed. Anyway, I found a great screencap page, and fanfic! And oodles of yummy Sam/Gene slash, baby, yeah!

BTW, if you are on my friends list and you aren't watching this show yet but would be interested in doing so simply because I'm so freakin' nutty about it, I will happily hook you up. Seriously, I'm so happy to act as the crack dealer on this. Really, really happy.

Hey there's a community!

Go here to download perhaps the best fanvid I've seen, and it's perfect for Life on Mars, just fucking perfect!

I suspect that if I were in high school right now I'd currently be obsessed with the Raconteurs, who are as adorable as they are talented. Their Speed Racer-esque video for "Steady as She Goes" just sealed the deal. As I'm almost 20 years out of high school I'll just say, cool band, you should listen to them.

Speaking of cool music, BBC America has a link up for the Life on Mars soundtrack, lots of good music on there. I love the idea of shows putting together iMixes rather than releasing soundtracks, I can grab just what I want and leave the rest.

Why yes, iTunes is my new favorite toy, why do you ask?

I really want to be able to write like the folks who are responsible for the BBC series "Life on Mars" someday. The show just keeps getting better every single week...how do they do that? And having a crime show where I don't know within the first five minutes who the killer is and why is so incredibly nice for a change. The acting is consistently fantastic, the soundtrack kicks serious ass, and the overall arc of the series has me utterly fascinated. How can you go wrong with a concept like this, "Modern police officer in London gets hit by a car and wakes up in 1973, he has no idea how or why he's there and is convinced everything he's experiencing is merely some sort of coma-induced fantasy. Is it all in his head, or has he actually travelled through time? Should he try to end the 'fantasy' by whatever means necessary, or does he have to resolve something there before he can go back to the 'real world'?"

I have no idea where the show's going to go but I am loving every second of it.

If you haven't watched it yet, please do yourself a huge favor and look up "Life on Mars" (either online or on BBC America), you'll be glad you did.

Hmm, I think I need an icon...
