    "Life on Mars" has the makings of an intoxicating treat, proving how far a little atmosphere can go in breathing life into a format that occasionally appears close to flatlining.

    The show is exceptionally well made from top to bottom and pulls you in and pulls you along, owing not least to a host of terrific performances.

  • Aaron Barnhart

    It’s an ambitious and ever-shifting examination of the lack of foresight in a culture addicted to rapid change.

  • Robert Abele

    Don’t mistake the slick-but-not-stupid Life on Mars for brain-bending sci-fi or Austin Powers-style farce. Aside from the psychological stress of its star... this is actually at heart an old-school cops-and-robbers show, with that dash of Twilight Zone to give it 21st-century cachet.
