Life on Mars (2006)
I just watched the first series (8 episodes) of this British crime/science fiction drama. It was not quite as good as I'd hoped, only because the police/crime storylines were fairly pedestrian. The time travel storyline, however, was well-done and the actors, in particular Philip Glenister as DCI Gene Hunt and John Simm as DCI Sam Tyler, could make an eight-hour staring contest must-see viewing.
