Life on Mars

#1
Wrong website, wrong forum possibly?... But anyone else out there in ARRSE land watching this ? its like watching the sweeney and the proffesionals .. with lines like "if anything happens to my car ill come round to your house and break your toys" this programme is a classic!

Saw the last 15 mins last night, Quality wish I'd watched more of the series.

The classic look of the bloke in the freezer sporting brown Y fronts with orange piping brought the 70's flooding back.

Is the young inspector some sort of time traveller?

outrageous series, one of the few decent things the beeb has done with license money in the past few years. really enjoying it. startin to look up to the DCI as a bit of a DI Reagan legend.

thoroughly enjoyable and less PC than most shyte on at the minute, so i'm naturally loving it. well done beeb.

on another note, after life on mars i've started flicking over to 'Help yuor self' on ITV1, with angus deayton. is it just me thats absolutely amazed and gobsmacked, not to mention a little surprised, that most of the loons in starring roles on this classic clip show are spams? whoever could have thought it. blowpipe boy michael janich last night was particularly entertaining. the animal ones i find to be the most disturbing, the yank with 11 sidearms about his person (1 of which was under the table next to him, therefore not technically about his person) was particularly stereotypical and the welsh 'naked yoga' piece was, in my humble opinion, a little unrealistic (on the grounds that there were naked welshmen, yet not a sheep in sight, and lets face it, is getting naked in wales ever a wise thing to do?)

Whereas I missed the last 15mins .... what happened ?


DI was a DCI in modern Manchester investigating a murder, got knocked down and is in coma in hospital ... the voices you hear are nurses/visitors at his bedside. He can't work out if he's dreaming, but will find out if JR Ewing turns up in an episode. Quite what the significance of the girly from the test-card is, I know not - unless Gary Glitter is to turn up and slip her a length.

they nicked the iron hoof after he had the fit bird that stitched the DI up killed. she'd took the negatives from the honeytrap to the DI and burnt em. spectacular, if a little predictable.
did i mention the fact that he was halfway thru giving a feller a gobble when they collared him?

on a later note, do they still sell Party Sevens anywhere?

You are darn tooting they were fella. Don't you remember the whole 'West Midlands Serious Crime Squad' Debacle. The proverbial dog's hind leg, old boy.
Not that I am knocking bent coppers you understand. Bent from a faking evidence perspective, that is. A fed who actively dry bums you into a coma whilst in custody is a different matter.

The early 70s were rife with news headlines about the latest result from operation Countryman - shire forces personnel investigating corruption in the Met during the 60s.

Top quality show best line so far;

Sam Tyler (2006 cop transported back to 1973) witnesses senior cop beating up a suspect.

Sam Tyler to senior rozzer "Jesus Christ, its like Guantanamo Bay here"

Senior Rozzer "Its nothing like Spain son"

BEAUTY!

I've said it before in another forum (the one about what we all got away with back in the good old days) but i'll mention it again....

DCI and cronies holding crim upside down threatening to rub his face in some hardend dog excrement.....

Sam: "White dog shite....now THAT brings back memories"

Sir_Dae mentioned that it was less PC earlier in the thread.......that is the entire beauty of this series. Being a period drama, the Beeb can do everything on it that really went on in the '70's and get away with it.

The Rasta barman is quality too.
