    Where is my ZEN??!!

    Season 1 of Life was so stupendous for 3 reasons: Zen, bizarre crime scenes and the intriguing Charlie plotline. This episode falls on its face on all accounts.

    Despite non-acting Danni Reese not being on the job, she still wastes airtime over the phone. And who could care less about her time in the FBI? Of course it is part of the larger plotline, but they are dragging their lead-boot feet on this one. However, I did love the replacement. More robot jokes would go down a treat.

    The crime itself really was not quirky or interesting. So what if women write to a convict? How is that remotely engaging? Boring boring boring.

    And where oh where is the Zen that sets this show apart from the rest????!!!! Come on writers – take back the writing room from the kindergarten class and earn your money.moreless
  • Another great episode of life.

    Life is a consistently good show with well written material expertly played by all the cast. This was another great example with an intriguing plot where a girl's murder is linked to 2 men who pulled a jewellery robbery, a religious letter writer and a contemporary playwright. The twists and turns of the plot kept me guessing all the way through and there were the usual great funny lines from Charlie Crews. Captain Kevin tidwell was also very entertaining. Dani reese wasn't in it much as she's still helping the FBI out with their enquiries into the Mickey Rayborn murder. Can't wait for the next episode.moreless

    • Goof: When Len Lyle Hix interrupts the performance, to introduce Charlie Crews, he is holding a program. When the camera angle changes the program is gone.

    • Goof: When Crews and his new partner are in the trailer talking with Flower's partner from the robbery, his partner says that in order for him to go out with someone they have to be half his age minus three years. then he says that he is forty. this would mean that his "Honey Pot" is seventeen and that would be illegal since she would be underage.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Charlie: (watching Nina's play) How come he's not saying anything?
      Len Lyle: He's communing.
      Charlie: Commuting?
      Len Lyle: Communing. With death.

    • (Charlie and Jane are in the Conjugal Visitation room at the prison.)
      Jane: What's that smell?
      Charlie: Disinfectant.
      Jane: Underneath it.
      Charlie: Need.

    • Kevin: (about Jane) What's she doing?
      Charlie: Speed reading. 12 pages a minute. I counted.
      Kevin: Maybe she's a robot. Have you seen her blink? Robots don't blink.

    • Charlie: This is a play you've written?
      Nina: Yes.
      Charlie: About prison?
      Nina: It's about redemption. It just takes place in prison.
      Charlie: Are there any jokes in it? You should ... you should put some jokes in it.

    • Jane: At the crime scene you said they were his screams.
      Charlie: You wrote down what I said?
      Jane: I wrote down a lot of things.
      Charlie: Part of your plan?
      Jane: Yes.

    • Kevin: (to Jane) Five sugars, how did you know?
      Charlie: She likes to be prepared.
      Jane: (to Charlie) I asked around and no one knew what you liked, I guessed tea.

    • Jane: I checked out the movie Flowers said he was at last night. It played when he said it did. No staff remember seeing him so that doesn't prove anything either way. A search of Sally Murdock and John Flowers' place hasn't turned up any letters. He still swears they wrote each other.
      Kevin: Prisons keep track of that?
      Charlie: Prisons barely keep track of their prisoners.

      Jane: Not what?
      Charlie: My new partner. I have a partner. Two partners.
      Jane: Of course you do. Officer Robert Stark and Detective Dani Reese. Did a little studying.
      Charlie: Oh you like to be prepared.
      Jane: Measure twice, cut once.
