Stan Lee's Lucky Man is a British television crime drama premiered on Sky 1 in 2016. Created by the legendary comic book writer Stan Lee, the show was a unique blend of magic and police procedural. The series follows the story of Harry Clayton, played by James Nesbitt, a brilliant yet troubled detective with a gambling addiction who gains an ancient bracelet with supernatural powers that bring both good and bad fortune.

At the start of the show, Harry Clayton is a down-on-his-luck detective in London's Metropolitan Police Service. He is separated from his wife and struggling with debts and addiction to gambling. Harry's fortunes change when he meets Eve Best's character, Anna, a mysterious woman who gives him a bracelet that grants him incredible luck. Harry's life takes a dramatic turn as he becomes embroiled in a criminal underworld that he'd never known existed.

The bracelet's incredible powers, which Harry struggles to control, lead him to investigate various crimes related to the artefact's history. Harry's investigations lead him to cross paths with the beautiful but dangerous Isabella, played by Sienna Guillory, who is searching for the same artefact. Harry also faces off against various villains who want to possess the bracelet, including his own colleagues in the police service.

The supporting cast is equally impressive, with Amara Karan playing DS Suri Chohan, Harry's colleague and friend who helps him with his investigations. Jing Lusi plays Harry's ex-wife, who is a successful lawyer and mother of his child. Kenneth Tsang plays Lily-Anne Lau, a wealthy Hong Kong businesswoman, and owner of the bracelet in the past, who assists Harry in his investigations.

The series also features notable guest appearances, including Darren Boyd as a villainous casino owner, Omid Djalili as an antique dealer with a dark secret, and Sendhil Ramamurthy as Nikhail Julian, the son of the original owner of the bracelet.

One of the best aspects of Stan Lee's Lucky Man is the thrilling and intriguing storyline that unfolds as Harry explores the bracelet's powers and tackles more complicated cases. The show doesn't shy away from exploring the consequences of Harry's newfound luck, which create as many problems as they solve. The balance of magic and police procedural is also perfect, as the show seamlessly blends these two genres to create a unique viewing experience.

The show explores various themes such as fate, addiction, corruption, and morality. It also explores the relationship between Harry and his ex-wife, who still has feelings for him but is apprehensive about reconciling due to his addiction problem. There is a significant focus on family relationships, with Harry's complicated relationship with his mother and his strained relationship with his father being central to the plot.

The show is set in London, giving it a gritty and realistic vibe. The city is beautifully captured by the show's cinematography, and the dynamic camera work only adds to the tense and fast-paced storytelling. The production design is excellent, with each episode featuring lavish sets, impressive visual effects, and stunning action sequences.

Overall, Stan Lee's Lucky Man is an exceptional television drama that will keep viewers engaged from start to finish. It has everything one could want in a crime show, combining action, suspense, mystery, and drama with compelling characters and an intriguing plot. The show's unique blend of supernatural and police procedural elements make it a refreshing and exciting addition to the crime genre. With top-notch performances, excellent production values, and a gripping storyline, Stan Lee's Lucky Man is a must-watch for fans of crime thrillers.
