Adventureblog Theater: Alice in Trancerland, Life on Mars US, King Solomon's Mine, and the Enterprise has a pretty relaxed definition of NSFW

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life.

Or maybe this is.

US Life on Mars trailer

I was a huge fan of the British version of this show. It was an excellent homage to '70s cop shows and clearly defined for me why I can't get into Law and Order or CSI. This trailer for the US remake version makes it look goofier and lighter-hearted than I think it probably is. I can see the cool elements of the show in there, it's just that the announcer keeps orally winking at us like it's sort of a gag. Regardless, Colm Meaney is genius casting for Gene.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if BBC America ever got around to finally showing the second season of the British version? I kept the Season Pass on my TiVo forever, but finally gave up waiting.

Naughty V'ger!

The Enterprise crew watches porn. There's no nudity, but the sound makes it NSFW. It goes on a bit long (sort of like Star Trek: The Motion Picture), but it's hilarious.

Yes, BBCA aired LOM S2 around Nov/Dec I think it was.

And also the eps (slightly longer ie., less cuts) were available for playback some time after on BBCA-On Demand.

I'm so bummed they even made a US version of Life on Mars. I can see it getting stale quickly with the US format of 22 episode seasons. But I agree, if someone had to be Gene, Colm Meaney is perfect.

Does anyone know when the British version will be available on DVD in the US? That's how I'll have to finish the show.
