    Default Hey dumbass, watch Louie.

    So season 3 is starting this coming Thursday, June 28th. Don't be a moron and miss it.

    If you've never seen the show both of the previous seasons are on DVD and got added to Netflix Instant recently. So, go watch it. Funniest show on tv.

    Hey Dickhead,
    We're already watching Louie so quit acting like it's your personal discovery.
    It's my 3rd favorite show but I think you'd be hard pressed to call it the "funniest show on tv".
    The show gets really really dramatic a lot which turns off a lot of people expecting laughs.

    Sure it gets dramatic but there is humor in his honesty.

    I've been rewatching it since its starting back up again and just wanted to tell folks season 2 is on Netflix Instant now and maybe some would be interested in catching up for the new season and then posting here.

    We have a friend that was dying for us to watch some of his standup. He even brought over a burned DVD one time. I don't know where the fuck it is. I respect the guy for writing new shit more frequently than others, I just don't find him that funny.

    Yeah, the show definitely is not for turdy kids.
    As someone who doesn't like turdy kids, I like everything about this show.
    His $5 special was pretty good too.

    It's one of the best, most inventive shows on TV, no question. But in its quest to not only be a comedy, but to cultivate an understanding of where it comes from and why it's necessary, it's deliberately not funny, like, at least a third of the time. That needs to be made clear in any recommendation.

    Only thing I've ever seen of this guy was some random standup footage at a friend's house. I loved the bit he did about people overusing hyperbolic words like "amazing" and "hilarious". Not even from a standpoint of comedy. That shit needs to printed on paper and made required reading for every twentysomething.

    In hindsight of my post, and also revising the episode where he goes to visit the US Troops and meets with old comedy friend who wants to kill himself, I realize I should be clear that there is a lot more to it to help support the laughs. I was making a big assumption that people have/are going to watch and become versed in his stand up comedy (like I was) and understand where a lot of the non-comedy of the show comes from.

    I still stand by my statement that it is the "Funniest show on tv" currently despite the drama.

    I believe that is from Chewed Up.

    This point and his thoughts on bubble gum flavored medicine for children are two that have resinated with me in my life on the day to day. I was a Death Cab for Cutie show and also very excited to see the opener Youth Lagoon. The man sitting next to me asked me about them and I replied that "Their debut record from last year was pretty wonderful." When I used the word wonderful his jaw dropped as if I had taken a shit on the floor of the Disney Concert Hall and then he continued to comment on how very taken back by using it he was. I was mildly offended myself as well as disappointed that this the expectation that "twentysomething"s have colored for ourselves.

    Not to say I'm not hyperbolic, though not when talking about how great Louie is, but I try to elevate my vocabulary a touch where I can.

    My only complaint is that is goes way too fast. Some of the episodes are just at 20 minutes. Yes, some of the guests are great. They feel very natural whenever they show up. Glad you are enjoying it!

    It is (hence the title).

    I'm quite excited for the season to start, as this is one of my favorite shows on television.

    I don't argue with that title, although my version would be "Best funny show on TV". Still, I don't think the Eddie episode - or the bully episode, to name another of the series' darker chapters - are in any way designed to be funny. Or maybe they are and I'm not entirely on CK's wavelength.

    I seriously do love that movie. I had no idea who Louis CK was when it came out, so it was hilarious to go back and discover it after he got big with his stand up.
