lucky 6/24

Suprised there are no threads on this show for the past few weeks. I just watched Tuesdays episode. The first disapointing one this season for me. I really don't like the crack head character. I like him a bit more after last night but he so unlikable an episode around him was not enjoyable to watch.

I'm still bummed that next week is the season finale. I hope the show gets brought back as John Corbits (sic) is just fun to watch, Ever and the two fat guys are also great.

I fear bad things here considering I LOVE the show and even I have forgotten about it. Summer's just tough for a pick up show like that. I know we have so much going on that I can barely keep the day straight, much less pin point 10:00 on a Wednesday. I need to catch next week though!

ummm its 10PM on Tuesday.

I really need to get a tivo as I love the show but have missed it more than a few times for the original runs. The only thing that saves me is they run last weeks episode after the show. I think its also on Fridays late at night or something....

Damn, forgot to watch it. That was the only one I missed. Hopefully it'll be on again this week.

From what I heard, this was probably only going to last one season due to the ratings. Is there any new word about the possibility of a second season?

...

I surely hope not! If there was ever a show deserved a second season, this would be it.

Does FX have a history of axing shows quickly or are they too new to tell? How much a clone of Fox are they?

FX hasn't done a lot of original series, but so far they do seem supportive of the few shows they have. But not renewing a series with poor ratings is not the same as axing it early.

Unless you’re on the left coast. With DirecTV.

Geofferson, they generally run a new show followed by the previous show, so maybe you’ll get a chance to catch it. It’s also on Friday at midnight.

I think I agree with jkingfish. I like the show a lot. I’ve enjoyed John Corbett’s work since his Northern Exposure days. But I doubt I’ll miss it if it goes away. Seems like it’s meandering without any real purpose.

They seemed to be trying to make a statement with Danny, but I’m left with a “who cares” attitude. Although the part where Lucky is trying to play poker was damn_funny.

I think it’s making a positive impact on the future of TV, though, with the use of the “S” word. I’m wondering how many other shows will see this as a sign that the “crap” upgrade is OK for normal use.

I also thought this ep was pretty weak because the drug addict just annoys me. Still, this is a good show and I will hate to see it gone if it doesn't come back next year.

Lucky' gf on the bed with just a few bills covering her breasts and beaver was pretty damn sweet, though.
