- Alan Sepinwall, TV critic for the Star Ledger reviewed last week’s episode of Life titled “Initiative 38”. He also reported on a recent interview with Damian Lewis and executive producer Rand Ravich. The article includes “…a few paraphrased highlights from the call (in which Lewis used his native accent”):
Ravich said that he feels the finale will provide enough resolution to things that, “If this were it (cancellation), if I were a viewer I would not feel frustrated… There’s still plenty of room to go on, still plenty of doors to open, but we do resolve a few things”
…Neither man really has any idea whether there might be a third season. Ravich joked that “Life” might return as a series of 30-second interstitials during Jay Leno’s new show. When one reporter asked for details on the finale, Lewis and Ravich went on a run of jokes about the “Life on Mars” ending. (Ravich: “He ends up on Mars.” Lewis: “We’ve managed to work in time travel.”)
