  • Rumors have swirled around the ABC version of Life on Mars, as David E. Kelley was said to have left the show for unknown reasons. Now, it may be that he left to save Boston Legal and not because of creative differences. I still think, from the trailer I saw, they need to retool to the show to be less cheesy.

    That was sick. Bring it on! (H)

  3. Machine Girl looks good. Think I’ll keep it in mind for Halloween.

  4. Machine Girl was ok. It’s just set at one volume throughout: gory. There are some elements satirizing Japanese society, but not enough of it really.
