Sorozatajánló – Stan Lee’s Lucky Man


Mi az a szuperképesség, amit igazán szeretnél? – tették fel egy conon a kérdést a Marvel képregények apukájának, Stan Lee-nek. A válasza az volt: a szerencse. Így fogant meg a Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, amit a továbbiakban csak szimplán Lucky Mannek fogok nevezni, mert az a Stan Lee’s kitétel roppant fölösleges, hiszen az ötleten kívül nem sok köze van a sorozathoz. Oké, nyilván pénzt még adott bele, de ezt másokról is elmondhatjuk.

Mi is a Lucky Man? A széria Londonban játszódik, a főhőse pedig a James Nesbitt (A Hobbit-trilógia) által megformált gyilkossági nyomozó, Harry Clayton. Harry-ről érdemes tudni, hogy nem egy szimpatikus alak, leginkább olyan, mintha Dr. House nem orvosnak, hanem nyomozónak állt volna. Bár nem olyan arrogáns, a modora legalább olyan nyers. Ezen felül nem éppen az a fajta figura, akire szívesen rábíznánk a rend őrzését.

Éppen válófélben van, szerencsejáték függő és a pénzét hajlamos a kínai maffia kaszinójában elverni. Emiatt persze tartozik a maffiafőnöknek, ami egy gyilkossági nyomozónál nem túl jó pont. Pláne az nem, ha ezt a bizonyos bűnöző királyt holtan találják pontosan azután, hogy annak a bizonyos tartozásnak a kiegyenlítése esedékessé vált.

Mondhatjuk, hogy Harry nem éppen egy szerencsés flótás. Pedig az! Azon a bizonyos estén ugyanis lehuppan mellé egy titokzatos, ám csinos nő (Sienna Guillory), aki meghozza a nyomozónak a szerencsét: a detektív először rengeteg pénzt nyer ruletten, majd Eve ágyba is bújik vele. Másnap reggel ugyan a nő eltűnik, azonban hátrahagy egy karperecet Harry kezén. Egy karperecet, amit semmilyen módon nem lehet leszedni a kezéről, még a körfűrésznek is ellenáll, ugyanakkor folyamatos szerencsével látja el Harry-t. Legyen szó szerencsejátékról, egy gyilkos üldözéséről vagy arról, hogy a kínai maffia éppen ráterelné a gyanút, Harry-nek mindig minden körülmények között szerencséje van. Sőt idővel megtanulja befolyásolni Fortuna asszonyságot.

Ez a Lucky Man alapkoncepciója, innen indul az első évad. Harry-nek természetesen a karperec sok szerencsét hoz, de ebben nem mindig talál örömet, főleg mert a karkötő jin és jang üzemmódban működik, így ha neki szerencséje van, valakinek pechje lesz. Ráadásul az ékszert egy titokzatos bűnöző is szeretné megszerezni, és Eve-nek is van valami célja, elvégre nem véletlen tette rá egy gyilkossági nyomozóra azt a kis bizsut.

A sorozat persze több szálon fut, nem csak a karkötő körül forog a világ. Harry és Suri (Amara Karan) dolgoznak a heti ügyeken, amik többé-kevésbé a Londont félelemben tartó bűnlordhoz kötődnek, emellett főhősünk neje is kutat a háttérben, plusz Harry után nyomoz az új rendőrfelügyelő (Steven Mackintosh). Végül persze minden egy helyre fut ki, ahogy az általában lenni szokott.

A sorozat nagy erénye, hogy jól használja a szerencsekarkötőt. Nem oldja meg Harry helyett az ügyeket, ahhoz az eszére és tapasztalataira van szükség. Apropó, a sorozatot egyértelműen Nesbit viszi a hátán, a többi színész elbújhat mögötte, pláne azért, mert nekik a karaktereik sincsenek túl jól megírva. Harry társát, Surit még hellyel-közzel meg lehet szeretni, pláne amikor vívódik a lojalitás és a törvény között, de például az első évad során elég komoly tragédia éri, amin két rész alatt úgy továbblép, mintha mi sem történt volna. Érezhetően a készítők az egész sorozatot Harry köré építették fel, a többiek pedig inkább csak statisztálnak neki.

A Lucky Man mondhatni egy egyszereplős sorozat, ugyanakkor Nesbit játéka miatt kifejezetten megéri nézni, és a háttérben álló rejtély is viszi előre az embert – bár az embert ízléstől függően érhetik csalódások egy-egy rejtély feloldásakor. Nekem például az első évad befejezése kifejezetten nem tetszett, de mint írtam, ez inkább ízlése dolga.

Összességében a Lucky Man egy kellemesen misztikus, nyomozós sorozat, amiben egy remek karakter egymaga elviszi a show-t. Ráadásul a nyomozás nem New York vagy Los Angeles utcáin folyik, hanem Londonban, amivel kitűnik a tucatkrimik sorából. Elvégre Harry nem folytathat tűzpárbajt London közepén, hiszen még fegyvert sem nagyon használ. Persze minek a pisztoly, ha van szerencsekarkötőd?
