Critics Consensus: Life's second and final season finds the series' ensemble reaching an agreeable groove, culminating in a rushed finale that still manages to bring closure.

2008, NBC, 21 episodes

Critics Consensus: Life is distinguished by star Damian Lewis' undeniable charisma, but let down by a rote procedural formula and one too many quirks for its Zen protagonist.

2007, NBC, 11 episodes
