Even better than the real thing
9 January 1999 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

When the last episode of the second series of This life was over and done with I sat in front of the tv and really felt as if I lost not one, but several close relatives in an accident or something. This Life gave us several of the finest moments in tv-drama. Ever.
