What, no DVD?
26 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reliably brilliant John Corbett really shone in this series, accompanied by sharp writing, a terrific ensemble cast, and an underlying humanity that made it easy to sympathize. Lucky was always just one big score from walking away from it all, but he never quite made it. I loved his two chucklehead buddies, who (IIRC) made their entrance in the series arguing over the rules of rock-paper-scissors - "Tell him, wouldja, Lucky, that paper beats rock?" "It's a ROCK, dude! It'll punch right through paper." "Seriously, man, what's wrong with you?" Dreck like "Nip/Tuck" and "Dirt" sticks around on F/X, but not this. No justice in the TV world, I tell ya. Worse yet, with all the forgettable trash TV shows out on DVD these days, it is a CRIME that this one has not been released. This was one of the funniest and smartest shows I've ever seen. I can get "Gilligan's Island" and "Dynasty" on DVD, but not this?
