'Missing' - 'Pilot': Give me back my son!

What did everybody think of ABC's new Ashley Judd action drama?

I published my review of ABC's "Missing" on Tuesday. Now it's your turn. For those who chose the Ashley Judd spy drama over "Idol," "Community," March Madness, etc., what did you think? Did you appreciate all the attempts to remind us of her maternal side (including the gag where she tells the girl at the club to put out the cigarette), or was it all a bit much? Did you like the location filming? Enjoy the action? Glad to have Judd working again, or did you not miss her during her relative downtime? Thoughts on Sean Bean's latest method of dying? And will you watch again? 

Have at it.

Some thoughts on the 'Luck' cancellation

Equine tragedy got in the way of David Milch's dream project about horse racing

I've known David Milch for almost 16 years, and I have never seen him more animated or excited than the day we met, when at the tail end of an interview about "NYPD Blue," he smiled and said, "You should come to the track with me." I was a 22-year-old newspaper intern; he was the Emmy-winning creator of my favorite TV show. I went to the track. And over the course of an afternoon, Milch regaled me and "NYPD" writer David Mills with stories about a lifetime of watching horse racing. He even offered to cut us in on his winnings if a horse he had bet on came in; I was still new at the newspaper thing and trying to figure out the ethical implications when the horse did me a favor and finished out of the money. Mills and I occasionally talked about that day in the years that followed, and Mills was convinced that one day, when Milch had amassed enough credit in the TV business, he was going to spend it by combining his two passions to make a drama about life at the track.

So "Luck" as an idea has been in my consciousness for a very long time, which is why I'm having trouble processing the news that HBO has canceled the series after a third horse died during filming, early in production of the second season.
