Episode Summary

EDIT

Pilot is the season premiere for HBO's drama Luck, which originally aired December 11, 2011. Ace Bernstein has just been released from prison. He spent the majority of his three-year sentence plotting revenge on those he felt betrayed him. Ace makes an investment in a famous racetrack, which he hopes will pay off financially. Meanwhile, four other gamblers combine their income and place a bet on a long-shot horse, hoping for the same financial payoff.

    The acting is good. The soundtrack is oddly arbitrary. I just don't know why I would want to watch a bunch of degenerate gamblers in one story line, the trials and tribulations of jockeys (played as if they are war vets or something) in another story line, and the convoluted backroom dealings of horse racing in the main story line.



    I'll watch one more episode. But they if they can't produce a likeable character by then, they will at least need an interesting one. The most important thing the show needs, though, is a point. What is the point? Why am I watching? What am I watching?moreless
