Saturday on TV – 3/7/09

Saturday is the 1-hour season finale of Gone Country on CMT at 8/7c.

Also, tonight is the series premiere of Ashes to Ashes on BBC America at 9/8c. This is the sequel to the original, UK-version of Life on Mars. See what happens next to your favorite characters in the original U.K. series. In Ashes to Ashes, Detective Chief Inspector Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) is transferred from Manchester to London and embraces the ’80s. He is joined by sexy psychological profiler, Detective Inspector Alex Drake from 2008, played by Keeley Hawes (MI-5), who finds herself stuck back in 1981 having been shot. Frustrated by each other’s stubbornness, the friction between Alex and Gene heats up and as the two titans collide, it becomes apparent there is more than just a professional tension emerging. Hunt’s faithful sidekicks, a newly permed Detective Sergeant Ray Carling and the overly cautious Detective Constable Chris Skelton, are also along for the ride as the new team takes on criminal scum in the nation’s capital.
