Advertisements The pod people have taken over David Milch's brain once again. There's no way this is the same writer who gave us Deadwood. It's even worse than John From Cincinnati and that's saying something. A total mess. No character worth identifying with. The dialogue was muddled and often made little sense. I couldn't begin to understand if there was a story arc. I will admit the photography was good but that's about it. I gave Milch a pass on JFC, since he deserved it from Deadwood. It was bad but it had moments and a few of the characters were interesting. I can't do that for Luck, even by pilot standards. It was a disaster. With Boardwalk Empire done, I don't have to worry about renewing my HBO subscription.
