I’ll admit that I have been watching Life on Mars and enjoying it, but more on that later. This week, I am looking forward to seeing Sam meet his father back in the days. I’m sure a lot of us would love to be able to go back in time, and see what our parents were like when they were young. I know I would. As a matter of fact, I think I would have even liked to hang out with my mom. Maybe one day… but for now let’s find out how it all goes for Sam.

Vic agrees to cooperate with the squad in order to retrieve the missing baby, but the deeper Sam gets into his father’s world, the closer he gets to uncovering some dark, sordid truths, compelling him to face long suppressed childhood memories. His discovery culminates in a shattering face-off, after which Sam will never be the same.
