Ashes to Ashes Rewatch - 1x01

- I love how 2008 was muted and cold-looking compared to 1981. At first I thought it was a commentary on Alex's life, but now I think it's a comment on life in general, there seems to be no urgency, no need to try and make things right at this instant.

- How did I not notice that statue on the building's edge as Molly was reading Sam's file?

- I love the fact that we're introduced to the Quattro before we see Gene. Speaking of Gene, I love that we see his boots first. Clearly they wanted us to see the legend and not the man... there has to be a better way to say that.

- "three armed bastards" "Blimey, if that skirt was hitched any higher I could see what you had for breakfast" and "My reputation precedes me!" You gotta love Gene.

-Pong! At least Gene's priorities are straight.

- Loving the fact that this shot mimics the James Bond poster that Hunt has in his office.

-Aww, Chris and Shaz are precious. Ray, on the other hand, is... well, Ray.

-When the perp said to Gene "don't think the future includes you" do you think that line was loaded? Or do you think it was a happy coincidence?

-loving Alex walking into Luigi's for the first time... I don't even know.

-Ugliest couch ever, y/y?

- "I need Layton alive... he's my destiny" everyone's heads whip around.

- I just noticed this for the first time, when Chris and Ray watched Alex and Gene having their spat, Ray said "oh no". Gotta love him for seeing the writing on the wall.

-What do you all think of Molly filling in as the testcard girl in Ashes to Ashes?

-Music used in this episode:
Vienna - Ultravox
Careless Memories - Duran Duran
Are 'Friends' Electric? - Tubeway Army
Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie
I'm In Love With A German Film Star - The Passions
I Fought The Law - The Clash
No More Heroes - The Stranglers
Same Old Scene - Roxy Music

so you watched it then? I might as well do the same now, seeing as it's on Netflix

but they all seem to be cut down to 51/52 minutes, which I know is wrong, so I'll just watch it at home later

I loved the pilot

- love the mysterious opening shots and then knowing it was Alex's daughter appearing.

- great first scenes with Gene and Alex

- loved that Ray and Chris got it completely wrong about Alex

- Ray knows all

- The clown is scary

- aww Luigi's

- Alex and Gene do like their arguments and their drinks

- Love Shaz as a new character

- Crackin' music

Loved it from beginning to end..

I haven't read the comments for now

first of many wacky flashbacks/visions

Viennaaaaaaa!

Here's Gene and the boys. "Today, my friend, your diary entry will read: took a prozzie hostage, and was shot by three armed bastards."

"Pong! I've got Pong."

"Hey, why's this tart got a warrant card?"

"Don't waggle your fingers when you say my name."

"That's crap. And some of it was in Klingon!"

all those watches beeping, thank God it's not the 80's

don't run from the clown, Alex. Yeah, scream at it instead

that's a much better look, got to love the blue.

"I love lunch."

Gene's the A Team, of course

"You shot my bloody toes off!" "I'm not nervous. I'm just cautious."


"My name is Alex Drake. I've just been shot and that bullet has sent me back to 1981. I may be one second away from life, or one second away from death. They say that as you die your life flashes before you, all those memories and mistakes that form us. Well bring it on, my life can flash away as much as it wants because I'm not going to die. I'm coming back to you Molly."

still so good!

About time, eh, Dave? Weird about Netflix.

The pierrot was freaky.

Chris insisting that he's cautious is adorable.

I think they've done it with other UK shows, so I have no idea but I have them all anyway, so no harm done
