Gee, how long has it been? A month and a half? Very long, considering that a review of these four episodes would’ve been timely a few weeks ago instead of it being currently written now. Nevertheless, here we are again, to discuss the new Lifetime show The Lottery. To be honest I hadn’t felt that inspired or even motivated to continue the series after the second episode- not that there was anything wrong with episodes 1 and 2 per se, but rather there were much more intriguing new series that had my attention- Legends, Extant, Finding Carter, Matador and the new USA Network show Rush. Despite my lateness in reviewing The Lottery, what I must say is this- the show has been increasingly enjoyable with every episode, and should be given another chance if viewers started to tune out (yes, could me as one of the viewers that sadly felt that this show wasn’t a priority for myself to be up to date with each week).
