    Re:Life on Mars

    Show has nothing to do with Mars

    Title comes from the David Bowie song of the same name that is playing on an i-pod when Sam Tyler is hit by a car and is then playing on an 8-track when he wakes up in 1973.

    Evo…. whats a ad during DR who??????? hahahahhahaa!! BUY THE DVD’S!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Andrea says

    I listened on my commute this morning. Of course another great show (as always) the ending conversation was so endearing and Evo you DEFINITELY belong on this show. I love you guys and gals.

  4. Nigel in Melbourne says

    Life on Mars is a great programme. Much of it comes from the parody of 70s cop shows like “The Sweeny”. Its well worth watching.

  5. says

    What were people complaining about? I just finished the show on the way home today and hadn’t gotten into the voicemail episode yet.

    The wondertwins thing was frakkin hilarious.

    {Ghost Hunters}


    I love your show but I was wondering, if you think ghosts drain batteries, why don’t you put together an array of 20-40 batteries and carry it with you to give ghosts plenty of energy to manifest?

    Have a great day!
