"I used to buy a pickle, it only used to cost a nickel . . .

". . . so began the opening theme song of "Lotsa Luck," the Dom DeLuise sit-com that ran on NBC during the 1973-74 season. This is a very humorous, well written show that showcases DeLuise's comic acting abilities and features a fine supporting cast, notably Kathleen Freeman as Dom's mother and Wynn Irwin as his lazy brother-in-law. I hadn't seen this show since its original airings and was pleased to see that it still holds up very well so many years later.

The 22 regular season episodes look great for a 30+ year old show, but the series' pilot episode is of lesser visual quality and appears to have been sourced from a VHS tape, complete with some video blips in the early goings and a voice-over promoting another series over the end credits. Still, I'm happy that the pilot has been included as an extra for the sake of completeness, and even happier that a relatively obscure show like "Lotsa Luck" has been given first-class treatment on DVD. Most of the other extras included on this release from S'more Entertainment include interview segments with Dom DeLuise (he's a great storyteller), but one wishes that an episode commentary or two from Dom were included, perhaps on his favorite episode.

For Dom DeLuise fans this is a must, but those who enjoy classic sitcoms will appreciate discovering or re-discovering this largely forgotten comedy . . . Lotsa Luck!
Every episode a winner!

"I remember watching this television series when it originally aired, and was very upset when it was cancelled after the first season. This is one series that I never expected to see on DVD. The show is just as funny today as it was when it originally aired in 1973-1974. All 22 episodes are crystal clear. The pilot episode, which is considered an "extra" is not the same quality as the other episodes. All I can say is, if you like good old fashioned humor, you will love this series. "Losta Luck" brings lotsa laughs!"

"It's like welcoming back an old friend. What fun to watch this forgotten show. Loosely based on the BBC-TV program "On The Busses", this version was adapted by (among others) Carl Reiner and was Dom DeLuise's first and only starring role. And it works! You may not know her name but when you see Kathleen Freeman as his Mom you'll recognize her and she is hysterical. Even though watching the episodes back-to-back can make any series seem repetitious, this one has enough laughs per show to make it easy to enjoy. Keep an eye out especially for "The Librarian" episode. The BEST! More of these wonderful 'one season classics' please ("He & She" anyone?)"
Evan better than I remembered it.

"This show from the 1970's is very funny. Carl Riener was involved in it, and Dom Deluise is excellent as hapless bus driver Stanley Belmont. I remember liking the show when it was on, so I took a chance on the DVD set. It's definately worth it. There's a little bit of Ralph Kramden in Deluise's character, and the supporting cast is funny as well. If your tired of classic sitcoms you've seen over and over you may want to give this a chance. It hasn't run on TV since 1974."
