LUCKY HANK is in the throes of the ticking clock. PTSD and a past suicide attempt are dragging him to a place where recovery might not be an option. Life changes are in the air for his wife as well. Hank (Bob Odenkirk) is not in a good place. 

Dinner parties should be fun and lively. Airing dirty laundry is not polite; small talk for the dinner table. I agree… ”why do people of a certain age even have parties?” The writers took viewers on a slow-moving train that escalated into a total meltdown. It was riveting and unbearable to witness. The entire ensemble displayed excellent, controlled, creative acting skills. 

LUCKY HANK is a conundrum for me. I constantly ask myself if I want to watch so many poor choices being made repeatedly. “What percentage of happiness am I really feeling?” It’s just not always about “you.” Someone needs to let Hank know. 

LUCKY HANK is available to stream on AMC.
