What?!? You like Louis ck, but you don't like the show?What do you think about the 'faggot' piece at poker night? What about the recent 'smoking pot with the neighbor' bit? The 'heckler' bit? I have really enjoyed this show. While I'm sure you'll agree that not every bit can be funny (see: SNL), I think he's doing a really good job.
I like the show a lot. I think Louis has some amazingly interesting thoughts and perspectives, and might have the right idea w/r/t how to make a truly great piece of art. I'm sort of floored by the way he's using his 20minutes of film every week; he makes some incredibly strange choices, which don't work about 60% of the time, and then he's out like half an episode, or left with psychotic pacing. And I'm ecstatic about it. He's directing, writing, starring in, and I assume "producing," his own show, for the first time to my knowledge. If it stays on the air, I have to assume it has a great chance of becoming one of my favorite shows ever, as he gets better. But just because it's not very funny very often (it shouldn't be imo), and is incredibly flawed, doesn't mean I don't like it. I love it. Also, I mostly hated that poker scene. I thought it was one of the major failings so far. But the length of the scene showed amazing audacity. The bully episode was brilliant. This episode was interesting. I thought his point about pedos in the opening was genius. But the show is a loose bag of great ideas and elements right now, that is fascinating, and promising, but still disappointing at times. I am very optimistic, and would still watch this show for seasons even unimproved. I don't know that it will ever be more cohesive, or if he wants it to be, but I figure some experience will help him with a better ratio of interesting stuff. Also, I really don't care about his comic friends. I don't care about how the comedy world works and how they socially interact. It's been done to death, and Nick DiPaolo needs to go away.

aww the cat
Started watching this show this week, liking it a lot.DUDE, I KNOW THAT CAT! The store where they filmed that scene was my local corner store until I moved a few months ago. It's in Brooklyn. Watching the scene you hear the cat mewing before you see it, and I was like, OMG it's gonna be the white cat! The dude behind the counter was an actor. There also used to be a white dude who sat in a chair in the corner near the register all day and talked about shit. I bought my cat food there and so he'd always ask about my cat, and I have an all-black cat so that was a talking point, compared to the store's all-white cat. There's not much to say to the half-out-of-it dude who chills in the bodega all day.Now I really wanna go back to that neighborhood and tell the owner (not the dude in the chair, the dude who's always behind the counter) that his cat is a fucking superstar. Like, the interaction Louis had with that cat was only slightly more involved than than the weekly conversations and pettings I used to have with it (with her, I think). You can tell she's a good conversationalist. Also that she was scared of the camera. Not an actress.
Karl: She was a bit -- what's the word that you can use, cuz I don't wanna offend anyone?
Steve: Was she a homeless person?
Karl: Yeah but sort of mental homeless.

I think including animals in entertainment like that is sort of offensive, as they cannot consent, and privacy is categorically violated. It's like watching a kiddie porn, seeing a kid you know, and instead of being outraged, you are all excited about someone you know being a star.

I just learned Season 1 of LOUIE is on NETFLIX. You can see it on Hulu, Itunes and now Netflix. Also vaginas are beneficial.

Fuckin A! I adore Louis CK.EDIT: Apparently the reason I've been having trouble remembering the correct spelling of his name is because his name is in fact Louis, but the show is called 'Louie.'

Great first episode of the season. I love the fact that he's so great at bringing the kids into the show and stand-up without dumbing it down. The ladyfriend and I almost pissed ourselves laughing at: "Don't let your sister die of pain or lose her baby because you are awkward with strangers."

I like that each episode will now seemingly have its own continuity rather than disjointed bits. Really good start to season 2.Calling it now that the show will hit its real stride in season 3.

An amazing line. And I loved how the whole thing, the whole drama and build up, was just a set up for a fart joke. I've always thought the key to great comedy was balancing intelligence with toilet humor, and it was brilliantly executed by louis

Yup. These days it's hard to actually make a fart joke funny, but they managed it.
