Product Description

Life was his sentence. Life is what he got back. Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers) stars as the unconventional police officer-turned-convict-turned-detective with a second chance in each compelling Season One episode of the critically acclaimed mystery series Life. After twelve years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit, offbeat Charlie Crews has returned to the force with a $50 million settlement, a new spiritual outlook, a strong fondness for fruit, and a highly unusual approach to solving crime. With the aid of his skeptical and demanding new partner, Dani Reese, played by Sarah Shahi (Rush Hour 3), he’s turning police procedure upside down in this unique and fast-paced series with a “terrific cast [and] terrific writing” (Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times).

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. Booth on Sept. 28 2009
Format: DVD
A surprisingly good show. From the beginning, the quality of the writing built around Cruz was excellent. Each show helped build the background storyline while providing thoroughly enjoyable individual episodes, and the surrounding characters grew steadily through the season. Season 2 only proved how good the writing was, building to a season finale that left us hungering for Season 3. We now feel completely let down by the network. How could anyone at NBC (with troubled ratings) dump this show from their lineup. And they wonder why people are turning them off and heading for the cable channels that support good writing. We will purchase the first two seasons and hope the network sees both reviews like this, as well as the interest in the first two seasons on DVD, and revisit the show (albeit this is pretty unlikely as the stars and producers have moved on).

Life is really well written and acted. If you enjoy The Mentalist, you should like this series. Similar kookie hero with cheeky lines, an unusual perspective on life and an intersting subplot. Unfortunately Life only lasted 2 seasons. Perhaps it was too smart for average TV. Every line is important; you can't "sort of" watch it - you have to pay attention. There is subtle humour and insight throughout. There is a good mystery in each episode as well as the on going search for the person who set up the hero Charlie Cruise. I also purchased the second season which has a realistic conclusion to the story. I was hoping PBS would pick it up - I would certainly like to see more.

It's unfortunate that this excellent show was cancelled so that Jay Leno can have his five night a week in prime time. Season one was short due to the writer's strike; season two was outstanding, culminating it an amazing series finale. Every time i think about the garbage on television, I get a little angrier that a quality show like this got cancelled. Can't wait for season two on DVD.

This is an excellent funny & quirky series. The casting of the actors could not be better. Even though I had already watched it on TV I couldn't wait to watch it again from the beginning. I hope Season Two comes out soon.

I loved this show. It was different from the usual police show. I liked how they incorporated zen into the show and it makes Charlie a more effective cop. Sarah shahi is gorgeous. I bought the two seasons and was really hoping there would be a third. Great show!!!!!
