"Must see" TV
12 August 1998 | by GislefSee all my reviews

An adult version of creator Karl Schaeffer's "Eerie, Indiana," Strange Luck mixes film noir, a smattering of the supernatural, and just plain goofiness (two brothers fight over a potato that looks like Elvis) that seems to be mocking the very type of contrived plot "coincidences" that most shows rely on for their serious plots. Catch it if you can.
