Any minute now, my ship is coming in...

We watched Life on Mars Episode 7 as a family last night. It was the second time I'd seen it all the way through and I was shocked by how amusing it was. I've always remembered it as being terribly maudlin, but it turns out it is not.

This show has really eaten my brain. It's such a good show - Nick loves it, my parents love it. It's tight and engaging - just beautifully lit, shot and edited. I love the characters, dialogue and plot.

Mum and I were having a discussion about Sam last night which went along the lines of "he's so silly!" "and so naive!" "he can be really annoying!" "but I love him." Mum's always been perplexed by my Phil Glenister love, but she admits that as Gene, he has a brilliant screen presence and chemistry.

Unfortunately, I can't stop thinking about it. I'll be on the bus and going through scenarios in my head. I'll be walking up to my tutorial and be humming the theme tune. The obsession is bad, very bad. I have story ideas constantly. I do believe that very soon I'll have written the most individual pieces for any fandom. That is madness.

I'm sure the obsession will die down eventually... right?
