1 This show and "That 70's Show" both did a pretty decent job of re capturing not just the look but the "feel" of early to mid 70's imo...I enjoyed both shows...only wish LOM had a run like That 70's Show had....also really enjoyed LOM's use of music/song selection during the episodes.. using some songs that weren't usual big 70's hits that a lot tv shows and movie set in the 70's use all the time -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 31, 2013, 10:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I loved the UK version so maybe I was destined to never like a remake but what really bothered me was Gene is so much smaller and feeble looking than Sam in the US version. In the UK one so much tension is created by Gene being bigger and more aggressive then Sam, Sam is forced to play it smart. In the U.S one Gene looks like he will be knocked over by a mild gust of wind! It just didn't work for me, I never made it through episode one. -- Submitted By: (terror) on May 18, 2011, 2:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I loved this show. Great cast great stories and didnt stray too much from the spirit that made the English version so popular. But the show boned when it had the worst ending in TV history. It was reveled that Sam Tyler wasnt a cop from 2008 or 1973. He wasnt dead or in purgatory. He was an astronaut from 20 years into the future in a mission to Mars and Gene Hunt was his dad. And the whole show was his computerized sleep hallucination. WTF???? -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on May 14, 2010, 9:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I know a lot of people may say the series finale was when LOM boned. Thing is, the writers and producers would never have done that finale if ABC had just picked up the show for a second season (and heaven knows I wanted to see Sam Tyler and the 1-2-5 live through the rest of the '70s). Bottom line, the show was very well written--both as a cop show and as a time travel fantasy show. I really liked Jason O'Mara as Det. Tyler, Harvey Keitel as Lt. Gene Hunt (he could parlay that role into a new gig as TV pitchman for American Express Travelers Cheques) and especially Michael Imperioli as the arrogant and condescending Det. Ray Carling. In particular, the pilot episode stands on its own very well and I'd watch that ep again and again. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on September 18, 2009, 3:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
