Tears for Fears with Beers Neers?

ABC's remake of the BBC show Life on Mars. Harvey Keitel, sepia-toned muscley-car homage to 70s cop shows like Starsky and Hutch and The Streets Of San Francisco , and a white guy singing Vanilla Ice lyrics to 1973-era Black Panthers. What's not to like?

I'll tell you what's not to like.
* tvguide sez iTunes has a bunch of episodes for free -- but it's a lie.
* ABC's custom video player bites the big one. Keeps wantin' to play when I don't want it, and the buffering's all wacky, causing leap-frogging between sound and video.
* ABC is only offering the last two episodes for free, and I believe even those are aging off the site too.
* No new eps until the end of January. Why, oh why, am I getting the stank of cancellation wafting off this sucker?
