LUCKY 7: What You Need to Know About the New ABC Series

September 24, 2013 by  

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

They need to be careful what they wish for, because while the money could solve problems for each of them, it will forever change the close-knit bonds these friends have formed.”

My take: Quite honestly, I haven’t been able to make it through the pilot. It’s possible it’s amazing; I’m not saying it won’t be there. But I’ve tried to watch it several times and not once did it hold me enough to get me through watching an entire thing. I will absolutely watch it tonight, but…
