Life on Mars (Test Card Girl)
Episode 2.03 of Ashes to Ashes was really good. Really! I feel like they're suddenly doing everything I ever wanted from the show. Alex is kind of wonderful (and believe me, I never thought I would say that. Ever.) Gene is just the other edge of dark and dangerous, but still Gene. Chris is absolutely gorgeous, as is Shaz. Ray showed his more tender side this time around, for the win. And it seems like they know what they're doing over the series --- we have threads running through each episode, binding them together into a cohesive whole.

The writing is at least nine times better than last series. And then, so is the direction. And I don't know why I sound so surprised, but I am.

At last, you and my sister have something in common!

We're both misguided fools? ;)

Look, I am a girl of simple pleasures.

It has become impossible to continue thinking of myself as a girl: I'm going grey at my temples.

I'm going to call myself 'girl' until I die. I reclaim this word back!

Wait until you have a cluster of grey hairs above your ears, then tell me how appropriate the "girl" label is. *is surprisingly depressed about a few grey hairs*

*pets you*

This is why they invented hair dye.

My hair grows so fast that the roots would be showing in less than week. I don't think I can be bothered with the faff that'd be regularly colouring my hair. Maybe if I just talk nicely to it the colour will come back?

Me too, although it took me until episode 4 to get there.

They're writing her well --- and relatively consistently, which is nice.
