dont have cable but stoked he is trying another show. one of my favorite stand up guys.
We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.

I wasn't super-keen on it. I guess I expected "funny" and this really, for the most part, wasn't. I was especially put off by the card scene in the second ep, with Rick Shapiro's explanation of the origins of "faggot". It wasn't funny, and it wasn't awkward-funny (like the cringe-inducing thing that Michael Scott used to do so well). It was just sorta there.
I'll keep watching, since I love the guy, but I was hoping for something different. Maybe it'll grow on me?

I'm sold on this show so far. Really love his take on shit.

I love that it's not a straight comedy. A show doesn't have to be just funny, although this is mostly funny as fuck (which appears to be the only word you can't say on FX).
The stand-up part that ends the second episode literally had me in tears. "I guess two minutes really isn't enough time to know if you're the last person left on the planet."In the long run, we're all dead.- John Maynard Keynes

I was trying to explain it to somebody - that it's so refreshing that
1. it's not jokes. it's not setup, punch line. Setup, punch line. etc. It's not even scenes with a funny premise, it's just funny because he's funny.
2. As far as I can tell there's not really a narrative. It's just vignettes - which is great because shows typically run out of interesting narrative pretty quickly.
3. His stand up hits home with me... seriously, he's reduced me to tears as well laughing so hard about his kid stuff in Chewed Up.

I just watched the new episode (with Ricky Gervais and a mute Todd Barry). I liked it a lot more. I don't know if it was better, or I was better prepared...

Louie CK is holding his own; doing the most brilliant edge-sharp comedy along with Ricky Gervais - who is himself as funny and brilliant as I've ever seen him to be.

this is a strange show. it goes from funny to dramatic to absurd to depressing all in one episode.. and gets heavy handed and preachy fairly often. not quite what you'd expect from a standup comedian, definitely unique.

Bump for the new season.
Anyone still watching this? I've spent the last few nights getting caught up, and I like it even more than I did last season. He's ironed out the tone of the show. It's not always "funny," exactly, but it's gooooooood.

I guess I'll have to either torrent season 2 or HOPEFULLY they'll get posted to Hulu soon. I've been checking every week to see if they're up yet - but so far no dice.

bump for season three. Show has definitely found its rhythm.

Louie captures the awkwarness of a 14 year old boy stuck in a 40-something's body. He's doing a tour this fall, trying to go to San Fran to meet up with some friends and see him there, I can't even look at the guy and not laugh

Just bought my tickets to see him in Denver. Louie is the Best. I really like to laugh. He creates laughter. That is all.

the scene where after the landscaper blows him and expects him to reciprocate was fucking hilarious. the fact that every year he throws away all of his material and starts over is amazing. genius.

Yeah, the fact that he was more comfortable with the lifeguard thinking he might be gay then thinking he was just sad and lonely was brilliant. Really great show.
