LUCKY HANK’s first season goes out with a whimper. As I watched the finale, it was clear that not only is the lovable Hank on “The Chopping Block,” but so is this show’s chances of getting a second season.
In my previous reviews of the first season, I’ve stated that Bob Odenkirk and Mireille Enos’s performances carry the show through mediocrity. Unfortunately, the same continues to be true in E8. The predictable conclusion between their characters, Hank and Lily, works. However, more is needed to recommend audiences to tune in.
I liked, not loved, my time spent watching LUCKY HANK. Hank’s advice to his daughter at one point in the show is, “Doing something can help make you feel better.” That nugget of wisdom perfectly summarizes what LUCKY HANK failed to do. Not enough “something” happens to make any viewer “feel better.”
The entire first season is available on AMC.
