"gaining fans even among women and even gay people."
link to misaimed fandom? Gene Hunt isn't a strawman about the evils of homophobia that gay people have taken a liking to despite the creators intentions, he's a complex character who has as many (or more) redeeming qualities than his quite noticeable flaws. I removed the link, if you add it back please say why.
: That trailer for the US Life On Mars
is so stereotypically American
: I have to agree with you. What happened to something mystifying happening and the audience working it out by themselves? What about mentioning something casually and not plastering it all over the screen or saying things over and over again? Strewth!

BTW, imagine an anime Life on Mars
