Is this show "Luck" worth watching? Dustin Hoffman's big greasy nose annoys me (srs)

    And why do they have to call him "Ace Bernstein?" Too close to Ace Rothstein in Casino.
    Couldn't they come up with another heeb name? :facepalm:

    Good or no good? Need something to take on my trip tomorrow.

    I watched a half-hour of the pilot, and I was bored as hell. And I love Dustin Hoffman.

    But then, I was drunk and probably needed something faster paced.

    Like nazi porn.

    I liked it, it has potential, and if your TV schedule permits you are wise to get in on the ground floor on this one.

    Tried watching first, bored after 15 minutes, if you're a big fan of horse racing you may like.

    I'm a big fan of horses. I liked it. Just getting to know the characters. Where's Dave? I was wondering if he's watching it.

    I think Sipawitz likes it, he's a big gambler, so it's probably up his alley.

    michael mann is the co-executive producer and it sort of feels like "Heat" which I really liked but so far its pretty slow. Too soon to tell. I remember it took me a while to get into the wire and that's one of my all time favorite shows.

    Funny I just started watching The Wire On-Demand, I think it's pretty good from the start.

    Hey fucknose...we have similar tastes. Heat is in my top 10 of all time movies, and The Wire is
    my favorite show of all time.

    Think I should give it a shot?

    I need to give THE WIRE a shot!

    I still haven't started watching that show, and I have it all right here in front of me.
