This show is really good, but I don't have have as much to say about it as I thought I would. I think that some of it may be me having less affinity with cop shows that say medical shows or sci-fi or period drama. Some of it is unfamiliarity with the culture it's set in, Manchester, the 70s, 70s cop shows, even the UK. Like I had no clue what the little girl was all about until I looked up the show on wikipedia and discovered that she is the equivalent of the color bars in the US. Is there some good analysis and review of the show that anyone can recommend that would help me appreciate the show more?
I haven't explored in depth, but here's a couple places you might find interesting.
Holy crap. Leave them to die, you've done your job Sam, you're strong.
But he can't do that. Oh, no!!
You've done it. One simple move and you're home. Come back to us.
Damn!! And he was in a coma? Tumor and swelling and creepy smile from "Doctor"?
Hyde ward . . . OK this is truly freaksome!
Back to the future and over the rainbow . . .
I have the same questions that he does. Did he travel in time? Was it all hallucination? Was it alternate reality?
I made a promise to someone. And he always keeps his promises.
Will he go back somehow? Save them?
Maybe he meets them all in the 21st century. Annie is real, now. That would satisfy the romantic in me.
Now my mind is going to some very odd places . . . like an Annie 30 years older, visiting coma-Sam in 2007 . . . maybe even bringing a 30 years older Sam from the '70's to visit his coma-ized now-time self.
