Details Release Date: Jan 30, 2007; DVD Release Date: Jan 30, 2007

Think the fights on All in the Family should've been meaner? Then Lucky Louie's for you. Writer-comedian Louis C.K. — playing a part-time mechanic constantly at odds with his acerbic wife (Adlon) — puts the blue in blue-collar with expletives galore in HBO's spin on the classic sitcom. But be warned: The line between bawdy and crude is crossed often. EXTRAS include the unaired (final) episode No. 13 and commentary where C.K. rips on fake tv couples. ''People aren't sweet to each other. A woman just doesn't put up with a piece a s--- guy.''
