Great new show, wish it was an hour instead of only 30 minutes.
22 April 2003 | by damoeSee all my reviews

This show is definitely unique and ORIGINAL. It has taken the timeslot that was previously reserved for "The Shield", which was a show I watched religiously since it first came out. I expected to be disappointed by the comparison of the quality between the two shows but the truth is, there is no comparison. They are two completely different types of tv show. FX has really come through once again with "Lucky" with complete originality and believability of the characters. This is what tv shows need today. I find that I cant wait until the next episode and have watched the re-runs almost every time they have aired which is something I have NEVER done with any tv show in all my years of life. This show has enabled me to enjoy watching television once again! Great Job!!
