life on mars: otp

take a look at the lawman

Alas, no piccies of the lads today. I'm not sure I could ever top yesterday's official otp piccie. I swear, if you can find a slashier official promotional picture for a television series, I will eat one of my many hats. You can even choose which hat, because I bet you'll never find a better picture. No chance.

Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

The show actually does start with Sam beating up the wrong guy. No wonder he's starting to settle into the 70s. It doesn't take long for buttoned down Sam to loosen up and get violent, and by the second episode he's asking Annie to fetch him tea. Tsk.

Yeah, I watched the first two episodes again last night, and noticed a few more things, like the way the squad room is just a fug of cigarette smoke. Oh yeah, I remember my first job in an office full of chain smokers. Choke. wheeze. Cough.

I also noticed that Sam's 2006 girlfriend taps on the head and wonders what's going on in his head. She's worried because they're having relationship issues, not realising that Sam's just been sitting on a private hankering to be roughly mandhandled by a swaggering chunk of manhood named Gene Hunt.
