Trivia

Series Creator David Milch is a recovering gambling addict in real-life, and drew on his own experiences for part of the storyline. He jokingly refers to that part of his life as "the most expensive research period" of his career. The sad part is that making the show caused him to relapse on his gambling addiction. See more »

User Reviews

 
The Most Ironic Series Title, Ever.
29 March 2012 | by AMichaelLSee 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.
