Trivia

One of very few Stan Lee projects not based on any preexisting comic book or animated material. See more »

Goofs

The main character is continually addressed as "detective", which is par for the course in the USA, but not in the UK. On the British Isles, police officers are addressed by rank, with the "detective" part dropped and just Constable, Sergeant, Inspector etc. being used. See more »

Take a chance!
1 February 2016 | by urthpainterSee all my reviews

This is exactly the type of TV show that has an great first season, but due to lack of initial momentum does not get picked up for a second. That is why I urge anyone who is thinking about watching this show to take a chance with the first two episodes, and go from there. Odds are, you'll appreciate the gamble, and eagerly await the next chapter.

On the surface is a very well produced detective/mystery show with episodic, seasonal, and perhaps even a series arc. The main character is a very colorful fellow at the outer edge of middle age. He's clearly a man of contradiction - experienced, good at his job, but also an addict with his personal life spinning out of control.

The surrounding characters are very well cast, and there really are not any weak links to the ensemble. Everyone comes off as well thought out, with their own lives, history, goals and desires.

This isn't your typical comic book hero, or comic book realm. By all accounts this is the same reality we inhabit, but with a touch of magic in the form of an enchanted object. Once the power can't be denied, it becomes a question of what to do with this yin yang ability involving the positive and negative qualities of luck.

Perhaps the number one quality on display here is the writing. The dialog comes off as believable, the deliveries are well performed. This says something about experience, and the actors we are dealing with. It's refreshing to watch a new show with no gimmicks, just rock solid writing, production, acting, and premise.

Lucky man has gotten off to a great start, and deserves a following to ensure not only a first good season, but a complete series run.

An excellent start - 8/10
