Remember when summer TV used to just be reruns? Then remember when it was just a place for networks to dump some reality shows and burn off unaired episodes of canceled shows? I kind of miss those days! Summer is now a hotbed of new shows, and because the TV schedule has become an increasingly year-round deal, new shows are still rolling out left and right, as is the case with Lifetime's new dystopian sci-fi drama, The Lottery. Yes, you read that correctly: The network is venturing into (very) soft sci-fi territory to complement its more fantasy-driven offering, Witches of East End. But is The Lottery worth watching, or is it a bad bet? Read on to find out.
What's The Lottery about? Is it an adaptation of that Shirley Jackson short story I had to read in school?
