Enjoying Life on Mars




We love this TV series and recently bought Series 2 on DVD.

No, it is not a doco on Life on Mars. More like a cop show with a science fiction twist. The title comes from David Bowie's song Life on Mars ( Is there life on Mars? she sings).

Last night, while dh and I were out for our pre-anniversary evening, the older kids watched the rest of the series. I am aghast! They know the ending before I do. And they won't tell me the ending, just that it is super.

I am the kind of person who reads the ending of the book first.

Who likes knowing endings in advance - especially if the ending might be sad.

Who got son Anthony to text me the ending of the last Harry Potter book, before I had read it ( to text me, so others who didn't want to know wouldn't have to hear).

The suspense will kill me.
Sob.

Dh and I will have to find time this week to catch up on DVD viewing...

Yes, well, you know you're still going to know it before me!

I take great comfort in the fact that you have to know the endings, too. My husband now thinks both of us are weird. Hmm.

I bet you can't watch Stranger than Fiction without going to the end first.

PS Gordon emailed our minister so he wouldn't accidentally give away the ending before we saw it.
