I just read that the new HBO series Luck was cancelled. The article was a couple of months old but I stopped watching the show after the incredibly boring pilot so I had no reason to keep up with the news concerning it. What struck me as somewhat funny about the article was the reason given for the show’s cancellation, which was the fact that horses kept getting injured and had to be euthanized (3 instances total). The article mentioned the poor ratings, although it failed to mention the horrible plot and uninspired acting, and yet it was the death of a few horses that sunk the show. Intriguing.
