… Wednesday at 9 p.m., “Life” (2.4/6 in 18-49, 8.1 million viewers overall) hit a season high for a regular-slot telecast in adults 18-49 and attracted its biggest total viewership in more than a year (since October 3, 2007).

- This David Hughes review for the Region 2 DVD of The Escapist (a Rupert Wyatt film with Brian Cox and Damian Lewis that will be released on DVD in the UK on January 5th) says:
“With limited resources, and a laudable, stylistically valid refusal to escape the confines of a single location, Wyatt proves himself adept at building suspense…Cox is a commanding presence throughout… Among the supporting cast, Lewis and Mackintosh are standouts, the former taking a leaf out of Cox’s less-is-more-threatening acting book…”
“The Escapist is not only the best prison drama since The Shawshank Redemption, it’s easily the best British film of last year, and richly deserves its soon-to-be-cult film status.”
