‘Misanthrope’ and ‘Life’ tidbits

  • Praise for Life starring Damian Lewis:

    Television critic Jeff Hidek of the Star News included Life in his list of “The Most Enjoyable Shows of 2009” and M. Begum of the Star Online wrote about “exciting liaisons” on TV saying:

    Life (2007) – It’s never enough to reiterate this fact: Life has been taken away from us way too soon. Sigh. It was enough just watching actor Damian Lewis fill out our TV screen as Detective Charlie Crews, making the most of his character’s strange antics and passion for fruits while trying to deal with his messed-up head from having served time in prison. At the same time, however, it’s interesting to see how Crews can invoke hilarious reaction from his partner, Dani Reese (Sarah Shahi) and then later, Jane Seever (Gabrielle Union). We miss that.
