Critic Reviews

  1. It feels as if you've happened across a British sitcom or a rerun of "MADtv."
  2. 60
    "Lucky Louie" is not a runaway smash right out of the gate, but neither does it stumble or implode.
  3. Often funny when it tackles taboo topics head on, the show walks a fine line between honesty and unnecessary crudeness, and it often goes a step too far.

    I'm 76 years old (wife 66). We can't remember laughing as hard since the 3 stooges and Abbot and Costello. Was hoping to find out I'm 76 years old (wife 66). We can't remember laughing as hard since the 3 stooges and Abbot and Costello. Was hoping to find out that it is going to be renewed only to be disappointed. Next they'll get rid of Maher and Entourage and we can get rid of the HBO extra subscription cost. Full Review »

    The show just has that raw dark humor laughing at a guy who life seems to be getting worse everyday. If you follow the series you will see The show just has that raw dark humor laughing at a guy who life seems to be getting worse everyday. If you follow the series you will see that it show the qorkyness that is human flaws in life.. sort of like a Curb Y en. Its just doesn't seem to hold anything back. I laugh because it doesn't feel real, and it feels like you are watching a play or something. Full Review »
