My brother sent me a photo from his phone Monday night:
Apparently the destined-to-be-dreadful American remake of maybe-the-best-TV-show-ever Life on Mars will be shooting in his Astoria (Queens) neighborhood this morning. Yeah, the show is now set in New York City — it had originally been set in Cincinnati, I think. Or was it Pittsburgh? It definitely was not New York.
I thought we’d dodged that bullet (this should have killed the show for good). It seems the gun’s been reloaded.
Life on Mars — *gulp* — debuts on ABC on Thursday, October 9, at 10pm Eastern.
