Cover & Original: Life on Mars

Tomorrow, ABC will be airing the US remake of the brilliant UK show by the same name. The title takes its name from the David Bowie song, Life on Mars. In the story, detective Sam Tyler is hit by a car and wakes up in 1973, where he has to exist while trying to find his way home.

The UK version is one of my absolute favorite shows of all time, and it's got a fantastic soundtrack to boot. I'm excited for this US remake, and a little worried that it won't live up to expectations. There was a scrapped pilot that has since been re-shot, and it looks like it could be a good one.
