I think Ashes to Ashes got better this week. Maybe it just got different but the change was at least enough to make me want to keep watching. After all it’s not as if the parent series were perfect. Trying to remember the first few episodes of Life of Mars I do recall thinking it was going to make more of the case Sam Tyler was supposed to be investigatingin 2006, that there would be more of a standard mystery/thriller element to the whole thing, a “who is Sam Tyler and what is his mysterious back story?” Instead it became very much a stranger in a strange land story, the strangeness of history in the collective sense, while Sam’s personal history was reduced to Freudian cliché. Sam had daddy issues, Gene was his faux-father figure. It can’t be the same with Gene and Alex, he’s not who she fears growing up to be or being less than. In the new story Gene is really Annie (but never tell him I said that).

Spoilers are pretty on the outside )

Then I watched the pilot for The Sarah Connor Chronicles
