"[The show] puts the blue in blue-collar with expletives galore in HBO's spin on the classic sitcom." -- Grade: B
Though it's a multi-camera show with a live audience, LUCKY LOUIE is far from being a traditional sitcom. Louis C.K. is an Emmy-winning comedy writer, and he both writes and plays the title character in this HBO comedy. Louie has a part-time job at an auto shop, but he spends most of his time at home with his young daughter. With her job as a nurse, his wife (Pamela Adlon) is the family's real provider, creating an interesting family dynamic. All 12 first-season episodes, plus a bonus episode and backstage footage, are featured.
