Trivia

Michael Mann and creator David Milch got along so badly during the making of the pilot that Mann banned Milch from the set for the rest of the season, something Milch resented a lot because he loves watching the actors work up close. See more »

The Most Ironic Series Title, Ever.
29 March 2012 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

Luck was an epic show. In only 9 episodes, it weaved together numerous, insanely complex story lines which many people probably had trouble following. But what started as a 'too dense for anything but pretense' project soon turned into an amazingly broad show whose characters included mafia, rounders, trainers, jockeys, agents, horse owners, and many others - to create an incredibly smart show which, in my opinion, sought to expose the world of horse racing to the many who are uninformed, or simply would not normally care. The characters and writing were top notch, and this definitely should have been allowed more time to flesh out.

Hopefully another network won't be as scared of PETA and will pick it up.
