and not just the cancellation but the deaths too.
for a show (and show runner) with such obvious affection and love for horses to be even remotely complicit in their deaths has gotta be devastating,
Yeah but I mean (outside of PETA's garbage) it sounds like they were just unlucky.
But yeah, overall the show was offering a pretty balanced look on what racing does to horses and increasing awareness of that world, including horse retirement, so it just fucking sucks.
Milch has gotta be pretty devastated. The article Sepinwall posted about going to the track with him when he was still at NYPD Blue and being told about his plans for Luck that long ago was just so sad.
