Day 06 (favorite episode of your favorite t.v show): Episode 1.02 of Life on Mars

I have the original reaction post here (February 2006.)

The second episode of Life on Mars is when the much-needed humour missing from the first episode is not only there, but exploited, and, damn, it's brilliant. I love the balance of the truly gut-wrenching scene where we discover June's been shot and the silly, silly comedy of Gene going 'E... I dunno' in a bad Geordie accent. Gene's bastard side gets to shine in this episode. But his good side does too. And then there's Leonard, who remains my favourite guest character in any show ever. Also, I was already slashing Sam/Gene ♥ (because, DUDE, POKER SCENE. AWKWARD DARTS CONVERSATION. POST-COITAL CIGARETTES AND CONFESSIONS. SAM CALLING OUT FOR GENE. ADORING GRINS AFTER SAVED LIVES. MY HEART EXPLODES WITH LOVE FOR THEM.)

It's not only entertaining, it's damn good writing. The 1973 world is opened up further, the characters are given more depth, relationships develop. Not to mention it's so gorgeously shot, ugh. Love, love, love.
