I love life. The NBC drama too. “Life” is the best show on television, new or old, and this week’s episode (“Farthingale”) is the best hour of television I’ve seen this season. I mean it. For those who haven’t watched, “Life” — a lousy title for a great show from Rand Ravich — is about a complex detective named Charlie Crews, who returns to the force after years in prison. British actor Damien Lewis (“Band of Brothers”) plays Charlie with Shari Shahi (“The L Word”) as his skeptical partner Dani. They’re both excellent. The cases are fascinating and the conspiracy storyline is a brain-teaser. Superb craftsmanship, intelligent TV. Watch it. (Full episodes are available on NBC.com)
