My Thoughts:

Excellent film throughout including the ending which absolutely leaves you hanging although I believe that was intended. Still, it is one of the most gripping dramas I have watched in a long time.

Outstanding performance by Ed Harris, one of my all time favorite actors, in a surprising role of a priest, whom despite his own shaken faith, relentlessly champions a pious woman's petition to sainthood. Armin Mueller-Stahl is great as the arrogant Archbishop who, as it turns out, ends up having his own belief system rocked in a much different way.

I highly recommend this.  :clap:

Life on Mars Marathon (US Version), a review by addicted2dvd

Disc 2:

5. Things to Do in New York When You Think You're Dead

Guest Stars:
Lisa Bonet as Maya Daniels
Chris Bauer as Father Tim
Edi Gathegi as Young Fletcher Bellow
Clarke Peters as Captain Fletcher Bellow

My Thoughts:
An excellent episode! This one has so much. It has a very bad and sad situation that could evolve into a riot. It gives Sam the chance to work with a younger version of his mentor. It even has a special (uncredited) guest appearance of Whoopie Goldberg. This is a very powerful story... definitely one of my favorites of the series.

My Rating:

6. Tuesday's Dead
After a wild birthday party for Ray at the precinct, Sam receives a wild phone call that states he has until two o'clock to pull out of his coma before the doctor will pull the plug, just as his watch commander walks in with a hostage situation at a local hospital where the terrorists demands a dangerous operation be performed on the guy's brother.

Guest Stars:
Lisa Bonet as Maya Daniels
Brad William Henke as Michael H
Bill Irwin as Dr. Schwahn
Carmen Goodine as Erica

My Thoughts:
This is another great episode of this short lived series. The hostage situation at the hospital was well done. And they also hint at a relationship between Sam and Annie... the only female cop at the precienct.

My Rating:

7. The Man Who Sold the World
While investigating a child's kidnapping, Sam discovers some disturbing information about his father, as well as the real reason he disappeared for good on the day of Sam's fourth birthday party.

Guest Stars:
Jennifer Ferrin as Rose Tyler
Lee Tergesen as Lee Crocker
Dean Winters as Vic Tyler
Teddy Coluca as Uncle Butchie

My Thoughts:
This is another episode I have to give the highest rating. This is an excellent episode. Sam learns about the kind of man his father really was. Annie finds herself in trouble in the woods. And the episode has a great ending!

My Rating:

8. The Dark Side of the Mook
A mysterious phone call from a tipster leads Det. Sam Tyler to a headless body. A severed head is delivered to the precinct at the same time, thus leading to the discovery of a series of gruesome decapitations that might involve Det. Carling's brother, Eddie. The detectives are interviewed by someone tied to Aries Project.

Guest Stars:
Eric Balfour as Eddie Carling
Kevin Conway as Donovan Stamp
John Bedford Lloyd as Interrogator
Joel Marsh Garland as Seven Fifty

My Thoughts:
This is a good episode... though not quite as good as the previous few. I got to admit... I didn't like the lieutenant when I first started this series. I thought they made him too much of a hard ass. But you know... he really grows on you. You get to enjoy his tough cop style. I definitely got a laugh out of his International Cover-up drinking game in this episode. Ray's brother in this episode looked very familiar then I look at the credits to see that it is Eric Balfour. He played Milo on 24.

My Rating:

9. Take a Look at the Lawmen
A long standing competition between Lt. Hunt and the 125 and Anthony Nunzio and the 144 heats up as both investigate a bank robbery by the Russian mob. Meanwhile, Sam has a liaison in the file room, unaware of the woman's true identity.

Guest Stars:
Michael Aronov as Yuri Demidov
Vincent Curatola as Lt. Anthony Nunzio
Olek Krupa as Vasilli Lukin
Maggie Siff as Maria Belanger

My Thoughts:
This one is a good fun episode. Of course with the time being in the '70s there was no love for the Russians. And I must admit I loved where the cops put down their guns and fought them to take them in. It just added to the fun. Now Sam adds to his problems by (unknowingly) sleeping with the lieutenant's daughter. This man just can't get his crap straight!  :laugh:
