A Conversation With The Wife About Life On Mars

Wife: What's on now?

Me: A new show – Life On Mars

The program starts with a man driving and a woman in the passenger seat. He tells her he loves her and says he can't believe he's going to meet her family – or something like that. We soon realize that they are cops, and they are en route somewhere along with other police, all with lights flashing and sirens blaring.

When they arrive, someone says they are in search of a serial killer and they all proceed upstairs in some apartment building where they bust in a door. The guy they are apparently chasing jumps out the window.

The opening takes about two minutes and then…

Wife: How could this be life on Mars?

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Sometimes women interject logic, but it seems to be in the wrong setting or for some strange purpose. I'll never understand them. I once heard a story that gave me pause in regard to the value of the helpmate. A preacher driving with his family was pulled over for speeding. Their child asked his daddy why that policeman would pull him over. The preacher's frame of mind was to defend his behavior or charge the officer with wrongdoing but the wife said, "Careful!" At this point the preacher considered the boys perception of authority and said, "Because daddy was doing something wrong and the officer is correcting me so I will drive safely." God love 'em, we really can't do the parenting thing well without them.

    Was she really thinking that was a literal title? You did explain to her that the song on the radio (um, ok, MP3 player) was "Life On Mars" when he was hit and went back in time (or whatever), right?I watched it, too. What did you think of that show? I was not sure if I liked it or not, and came away feeling unsatisfied at the ending and unsure if I'll watch again.
