Life – TV Review

Life

 

Charlie Crews (Damian Lewis) is a police officer who, after being wrongly imprisoned for murder and jailed for many years, is back on the force. He is very much into zen, shares his large, empty house with another ex-con, Ted (Adam Arkin), wants to get back with his wife and is spending his time between cases with partner Dani Reese (Sarah Shahi) trying to figure out the whole conspiracy that landed him in prison.

I really like this show. The cast is fantastic, but it is carried by the charisma of Damian Lewis. It’s just a shame the show ended after only two seasons, because it felt that there was much further it could go.
