The fifteenth episode of the US science fiction crime drama Life on Mars, known as All the Young Dudes, was first broadcast on 18 March 2009 produced by 20th Century Fox Television and ABC Studios for ABC.
When Sam poses as a streetwise tough to infiltrate a vicious New York City gang suspected of truck hijackings, he’s pushed to the limit not to blow his cover, and he reveals a much darker side. A bare-knuckled fist fight with a gang member, a late-night deal to buy a truckload of stolen VCRs and even time behind bars at his own precinct are all necessary elements of Sam’s scam. But can he keep up the role when he’s told to shoot a bound-and-gagged woman? And his attraction to the gang leader’s sister also seems to be an explosive ingredient in a recipe for disaster.
- The title of the episode is based on the Mott the Hoople song "All the Young Dudes" which also appears near the end of the episode. The song was written by David Bowie.
- Paige Turco, the actress who plays the role of Colleen McManus, is married to actor Jason O'Mara.
