Life on Mars (Sam  & Gene are Partners)
This entire post is in capslock. You have been warned.



READ IT. READ IT NOW. IT IS SO MUCH BETTER IN SO MANY WAYS TO WHAT WAS AIRED. FOR SERIOUS.

It makes more sense. It addresses the Morgan problem. It's still horrible with the whole Ruth thing, but there's far more suggestion that Sam didn't commit suicide, but instead had some kind of interdimensional travel. (It's not conclusive by any means, but it is more suggestive.) You get far more of a sense that Sam really hates 2006, and can see why.

And? And? As much as I love the aired final minutes of LoM, the shooting script is actually better. BECAUSE AFTER THE REQUISITE SAM/ANNIE KISS? THE ONLY TWO CHARACTERS WHO DRIVE INTO THE SUNSET ARE SAM AND GENE.

Fuck. Fuck.

I love the ensemble, do not get me wrong. I have always adored Annie, and Chris and Ray, and it does seem right that they should go off into the sunset together --- but SAM AND GENE, you guys. Matthew's original intention, despite all the "you know how I feel" with Annie, was that Sam belonged with Gene. Riding into the sunset WITH GENE AND GENE ALONE.

I cannot process this right now. All I can say is? I think I finally forgive 2.08.

So do I (normally). It's just my documentation tic kicking in.

Isn't it wonderful?

I just wish... that the flirtation scene had been with Gene.

GENE
I remember this bloke turning up at our station looking like an escapee from the local loony bin. And he had all these funny ideas about policing.

SAM
I know him. Lithe, good-looking bloke. Pretty ripped.

GENE
Only thing ripped about him was his tattered grip on reality. Anyway, he ended up in "A" Division, screaming about furniture. "This is a door! Where's my desk! Chair!"

SAM
He sounds like a grade-A nutter. How’d you handle him?

GENE
Oh, the usual. I slammed him up against my filing cabinet and gave him the full weight of my personal authority. (he looks at SAM, his eyes narrowed) I stared him at him 'til he backed down. He wasn't half a skinny little tosser ...

SAM
God, he sounds bloody gorgeous.

GENE
Next to the Gene Genie? Not a chance.

That was actually totally perfect and I can see it, and yes, I agree, how amazing would that have been?
