Lights Out

Unread postby e0y2e3 » Fri Feb 18, 2011 1:14 am

Just wanted to drop you guys a heads up. Been watching this (new FX show) for five weeks and it is damn good. As good a sports/family drama as I can remember. Show features an ex heavyweight champ that walked away five years ago (after a loss) at the request of his wife. The downturn and his shitty brother manager sank him financially and now he has to battle his family's desire for him to stay out of the ring versus keeping them from going broke.

Show is really really good and Lights Leary is one of the few good guy stars out there.

Episodes 3-5 are on Demand and I'd recommend downloading the first 2 if you can. It's boxing, it's family and it's a pretty bad ass dude.

I haven't seen it but I've heard great things about it. I've also heard that it isn't doing well and likely to get cancelled after this season.

While that would suck I honestly can say if the writers have the opportunity it is a story that can be wrapped up perfectly in a single season.
