Life on Mars Season 1 Episode 1-3

5 second plot: Sam gets hit by a car in 2006 while listening to the song ‘Life On Mars’ and wakes up in 1973. He thinks he is in a coma and that his subconscious is playing tricks with him, but he’s not really sure. He continues to do what he does best: being a cop and catching bad guys. But police work in 1973 was a bit different compared to 2006.

5 second review: Gene Hunt is the real star of the show. He's a though mofo, shouting trash and sweet '70s style politically incorrect cop talk. He's hitting suspects, planting evidence, laughing with disabled people,... but he actually means well. He just wants his town to be safe.
