WINTER TV REVIEW: Luck
HBO bet big on sneak-previewing its new horse/race track drama LUCK starring Dustin Hoffman in early December ahead of its 2012 winter run, and I'm glad it did because this is one less show I have to DVR. Hard as I tried, I could only get through the first half before deleting the pilot episode. The pacing is slow, and for a racing drama, that's just good. The 'mane' thing to like about the show is some snazzy production values. Other than that, a D grade.
