Roman Nevikov kidnaps Dani Reese and contacts Charlie with his ransom demand: he want Charlie to bring him Mickey Rayborn. With the LAPD brass looking for Charlie as well, he's not spending much time at the office. He wonders if Rayborn is alive but Ted Earley can't find any financial activity by Rayborn. Where and how, Charlie asks himself, could someone live without money? The answer to that question gives him the solution to Rayborn's disappearance. Charlie also learns, finally, why his friend and business partner Jason Seybolt was targeted by the crooked cops and what Rayborn and his pals were really after. In order to get Dani's freedom however, Charlie can only do one thing: exchange himself for his partner and take what comes. Written by garykmcd

Very good
11 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

I very much enjoyed Life, preferring "psychological" police series to the "shoot 'em up" ones.

I first watched it in French and enjoyed it very much (although I didn't catch all the episodes) and, knowing that Damian Lewis is British, I was interested in seeing how he managed an American accent; so I bought the DVDs of the two series. I was disappointed in the sense that his real voice has higher pitch than that of the French person who doubled him. Even so I watched the totality of the episodes over a couple of days (nights rather) - Charlie Crew's out of the box/deductive thinking; a corrupt F.B.I. unit; etc. were all positive aspects to the "interest" the series incited in the viewer.

From the end plot I guessed that series 3 was never on the cards - all items were tied up, leaving nothing for the start of a follow on, indeed it would mean the creation of a whole new independent plot.

The other "different" police series is "The Mentalist" that I like too.
