Stan Lee’s Lucky Man episode 1 review

25 January 2016 5:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writer: Neil Biswas

Director: Andy De Emmony

Cast: James Nesbitt, Eve Best, Sienna Guillory, Amara Karan, Joseph Gatt, Steven Mackintosh, Burn GormanMark Ebulué and Darren Boyd.

Synopsis: The life of troubled London cop, D.I. Harry Clayton, takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious woman gives him a bracelet that seems to allow him to control luck. Will he use it to bring a killer to justice or win at the casino?

Verdict:

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man is a curious and interesting concept when first faced with its premise and setting. Not only has the mastermind behind Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men channeled his creative genius into a new television series, but it also happens to be a British crime drama starring hilarious Irish actor James Nesbitt. However, this beautiful mixture of components actually forms something quite unique and entertaining.

The episode starts off by introducing the audience to Harry Clayton, »

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man episode 1 review

Happiness? More or less. Sky’s new Fantasy crime thriller stars James Nesbitt as a detective with luck on his side...

You can imagine the commissioning meeting that led to this one: “Whaddya got for me?” says a cigar-chomping exec, “another detective show? Where’s the super-powers? We gotta have super-powers. Get wassisname, the Spider-Man guy, pay him to come up with a new super-power.”

And so Stan Lee’s Lucky Man was born. Possibly.

Aside from his name and a requisite cameo in episode one, it’s hard to tell the extent of Stan Lee’s involvement in Sky’s new fantasy thriller. The IMDb gives him neither a writer nor a story credit on the show, yet press cuttings are calling it Lee’s UK television debut. Perhaps his role was like that of Peter Dinklage’s character in Elf, a trouble-shooter shipped in to provide a killer idea. »
