Remember A Murder of Crows? The steampunk webseries that I have the privilege of directing? Yes? No? Maybe? Anyway, regardless of whether you do know of it or not, we are almost finished with it! It’s been a long time coming, since the idea was born last summer in fact and now it’s almost a reality! We are just in the editing stages which means me and the editor spending hours in a tiny edit suite scrutinizing everything we did when we were filming. Fun times! No, but really. If you’re lucky you might get to see the finished product and wouldn’t that just be amazing?? Especially if you’re into steampunk (and who isn’t these days?) but also if you are partial to a good old detective mystery story. Bliss. Keep your eyes peeled for the first part of the episode to be uploaded, I’ll definitely be sure to tell you. Can’t wait!
Oh hey, you with the really pretty face, you with the extremely muscley body, you with the super cute haircut, I love you. Yes, you. And I think that in return to my wondrous love, you could take a look at my Kickstarter page for my Steampunk web series pilot! No, I’m not asking you to pledge any money (although that’d be freaking SWEET), I’m just asking you to take a look and share it around to all your lovely friends! Share, share, share! That’s the thing because there are plenty of Steampunk people out there who would love to know about this or even be involved!
This is really all I have to update on, I’m the worst blogger in the world, I know, but I’m still here! Trust me! Keep your eyes peeled 😉
“My name is Sam Tyler.
I had an accident and woke up in 1973.
Am I mad, in a coma, or back in time?
Whatever’s happened, it’s like I’ve landed on a different planet.
Now, maybe if I can work out the reason, I can get home.”
This is my favourite TV show and I remember actually watching it when it was being broadcast on the TV, which I’m afraid I can’t say a lot for nowadays. As soon as I watched the first episode, I was hooked, it was like something I had never seen before and I just fell in love with it immediately. It has to be said that my favourite character is the might Gene Hunt, Detective Chief Inspector of the Greater Manchester Police in 1973. I mean, it’s such an original idea: a cop from 2006 is in a car accident and when he wakes up, he’s gone back in time by 33 years, he’s been demoted to Detective Inspector and gets flashbacks to his childhood as a four year old and hears hospital noises from the present day.
I’m not going to go into some massive review about it, there’s no point and I can’t be bothered to be frank. But I will say that I found it so easy to fall in love with all the characters; Sam, Gene, Chris, Ray and Annie and then all the extras that dip in and out as they do in dramas.
So instead of going off on one about how amazing Life on Mars is, this page is going to be filled with pictures and things like that, because they’re far more interesting than reading the crap that comes out of my brain and onto the computer, right?
BUT! DO NOT confuse this Life on Mars with the utterly SHITE American rip off. No, just no. It even got cancelled before the first series finished. Only watch the English version. The only version.
