HBO's description: "From acclaimed director Michael Mann and 'Deadwood' creator David Milch, 'Luck' takes a provocative look at the world of horse racing - the owners, gamblers, jockeys and diverse gaming industry players.* The cast stars Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Farina, John Ortiz, Richard Kind, Ian Hart, Kevin Dunn, Ritchie Coster, Jason Gedrick, Jill Hennessy, Tom Payne, Kerry Condon, Gary Stevens and Nick Nolte. The pilot is directed by Michael Mann and written by David Milch."
I know the pilot aired a month or so ago after Boardwalk Empire's finale, but I waited until tonight to get into it. I have a fair-to-midland understanding of the horse-racing industry, and I was still kind of lost as to what's going on, but glad to be so. Like Boardwalk, I'm hoping that the show treats the viewers as adults who can figure it all out with time. I'm just disappointed that there is no way in hell this will ever pass the Bechdel test, unlike Boardwalk. Anyone else watch?
