HBO
has cancelled "Luck" after the latest horse death.

As TMZ reported, yesterday a third horse died during production of the show, and HBO just made the drastic decision to lower the boom.

HBO released a statement that reads in part, "While we maintained the highest safety standards possible, accidents unfortunately happen and it is impossible to guarantee they won't in the future."

The statement goes on ... "We maintained the highest safety standards throughout production, higher in fact than any protocols existing in horse racing anywhere with many fewer incidents than occur in racing or than befall horses normally in barns at night or pastures."

I am pissed off the show was cancelled!! I really liked the show, it took about two to three episodes for me to actually "get it" which I feel was part of the problem for others, most people do not have the sustaining ability to wait and see if they will like something over time, they want instant gratification here in the USA, or else the won't watch? I felt the luck was well written,well cast, and very well produced. also the show has a lot of dimensions to it, not just a one act deal. horse racing, gambling, crime drama, sex, murder and drugs, it had all the elements to make a great show, that felt more like a movie than a series? I will miss it for one!!
