Some bad news: ABC is pulling the plug -- so to speak -- on its version of Life on Mars. It was a little too new to join my favorites of last year, but it's been a compelling bit of escapism these past few months. Pity that its central mystery will have to be wrapped up in the next, and last, three episodes.

Now I'll have to seek out the British version (and its sequel Ashes to Ashes) on BBC America, or maybe DVD. In the meantime, I can think of no better tribute to the show than...

For the record, that's not a Pic-Tac-Toe. Consider it a 9-panel salute to the awesome facial hair of actor Michael Imperioli. He's like the lost Beastie Boy.

On some subconscious level, I can't help but insert a few themes. And I dig the reference to Ken's T-shirt.

That sucks! I like that show - which means ultimate doom, it seems like.
And I understood all the references in the American version, where I had a feeling half of them were going over my head in the British version.
