Stan Lee, the comic book legend behind Iron Man, Spider-Man and the X-Men, will create a different kind of superhero in a new TV series starring James Nesbitt as a detective who can control luck.
Knowing that Anna and Daisy's lives are in grave danger, Harry struggles to find a way to save them from Golding's cruel plan. Unsure of who he can trust, the detective has been told that the only way to spare them is to make the ultimate personal sacrifice. But for a man with power over luck, could there be another means?
Harry gets dangerously close to Golding, before a disturbing turn of events places him in mortal danger, while Boyd shows his true colours by sitting on some vital evidence. Meanwhile, Anna and Whitecross prison governor Nikhal Julian grow closer and Lily-Anne is handed a violent assignment.
It is definitely a fantastic thriller. It kept me at the edge of my seat throughout. And the cliffhanger of the pilot was pure gold. I very much like the idea, though the chosen one clichee is a bit old, however the main character is very believably human in his imperfections. There's some things that are not entirely clear (does good luck eventually return as bad luck? - maybe we'll find out if [SPOILER] is related or just a coincidence later.) Overall, could be very promising. The characters are good. PS: I thought the accents were a bit much... no idea why...
Marvel's shows seem to be everywhere these days. This show is not what you'd expect, but if you liked Forever or are a Marvel super fan, you'll like it. Following a chain of events, an English detective gets an armband that has lucky powers while on a case. But you've got to lose some to win some if he wants to solve it.
