Life On Mars [American Style]

Word came down today that ABC is really going to go forward with the American remake of the British drama series Life on Mars. I am hyper-sceptical about the chances that this will be anything close to the greatness of the original series. Although I have a lot of frustrations with how the BBC series ended and how the plot line was essentially abandoned for the follow-up series Ashes to Ashes, it still was probably the best cop drama I've seen since Homicide...not to even the best soundtrack to a cop drama ever.
