Life Season One DVD - 2008

This series started out well with interesting criminal investigations but it deteriorated halfway into a quirky "examination" of Zen Buddhism at the expense of the story. Damian Lewis is a very good actor, but he was required to waffle between solving a serious crime and a script which sounded like a few chapters from "Buddhism for Dummies." The result is that the crime investigation does not hold viewer interest and the Buddhist parables and fortune cookie aphorisms wear very thin and are usually just plain silly. An interesting idea which was not well developed.
