ah there is this old thread! sorry. that was kinda hard to find, to be honest. anyway, i will let others decide if the new show deserves its own thread. it really is so good.

Come anticipate Louis C.K.s HBO sitcom LUCKY LOUIE with me

from wiki:

He was married to New York artist and painter Alix Bailey in 1995; they divorced in 2009. He has two daughters from the marriage[9] and shares joint custody of them with Bailey.[10]

the matthew broderick scene. oh man, i laughed and laughed. lots of stuff made me laugh. out loud. loudly. maria laughed a lot too. we laughed together.

first episode is kinda clunky, but the instasmile date thing is so fucking brilliant that it makes up for it

just posted this on the other louie thread, but the coffee shop routine from last night was the cinematic equivalent of how I feel on ILM

Darin, Thursday, 12 August 2010 06:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

And yeah, as disjointed/clunky/whatever this show is, I totally look forward to it every week. I love that Louie just says 'fuck it' to any real story lines or what have you.

Darin, Thursday, 12 August 2010 06:21 (4 years ago) Permalink

If we're posting things in both threads: that ice cream scene was just brutally real for me.

no gut busting joke can change history (polyphonic), Thursday, 12 August 2010 06:22 (4 years ago) Permalink

Liked the first ep, was pretty good. I'm trying to get over my reservations about the production "style". It isn't exactly like CYE, although some of the acting pushes it in that direction.

The world's leaders on pills (admrl), Thursday, 12 August 2010 16:56 (4 years ago) Permalink

i'm trying to think of another show about a guy who is basically sensible and lovable but hates himself. seinfeld: sensible, he loves himself. CYE: hates/loves himself, is in no way sensible.

just becuz whiney wants people to post in th other thread i am posting in this thread..may they join in a golden tapestry.....i heard him talkin about this show and now watch it on th boot legz tube idea/.//its so good...it makes people run away from th room..then run back when they hear sumthin funny..search also th npr interview he did recently...hes in town alot bxing/training and playin guitar..i dont feel like bothering him..i dont want to become th "annoying fan upstate" character in hz routine...love himmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

there is a piece sumwhere where he talks about other male characters who basically love themselves versus those that hate themselves...th ep w th kid and th single mom was awesome

heckler shutdown is like the best 5 minutes of uncomfortable television of all time imo

really? it came off as flat for me

the bit he was doing in the beginning about feeling full was funny, but the whole heckler thing, including when he runs into the woman later on in the bar seemed pointless to me, and i guess confusing in tone, as well. like, at first i thought the whole thing hinged upon tension between him and his balding schlubby comic cronies and the heckler gal, and there would be some huge satisfying blowup, but the whole thing just sort of fizzled out. or was that the point?? i'm confused. what was i supposed to be laughing at or pondering over?

dell (del), Tuesday, 17 August 2010 16:11 (4 years ago) Permalink

like larry david's cye character is pretty horrible, but somehow likeable. louis' character in that scene seemed completely devoid of even the tiniest shards of charisma or intersting-ness

dell (del), Tuesday, 17 August 2010 16:12 (4 years ago) Permalink

David's character deals with social anxiety by trying to dominate it and the show climaxes when he fails.

Louis's character deals with social anxiety by being completely overwhelmed and bewildered by it and the show climaxes when he breaks the whole thing down in one very intense, cathartic conversation

This is def. shaping up to be one of the strongest first seasons of any show in recent memory - lots of memorable scenes and odd touches, but still feels like it has room to grow and change. The fact that this last ep was suspenseful and touching as well as being funny as hell is a testament to its unique malleability - people call it CK's Curb, but that show is so much more traditional.

Simon H., Wednesday, 18 August 2010 07:11 (4 years ago) Permalink

I was thinking the exact same thing, Simon (about it being a really strong first season), tho I immediately thought that Community's first season is still stronger.

Mordy, Wednesday, 18 August 2010 07:20 (4 years ago) Permalink

you arent doing a good job of measuring the temperature in the room

Perhaps not, but it feels like a room where you and Whiney are defending the kind of insubstantial clickbait that he in particular often (admirably) rails against. Except this time it's your mate so different rules apply.

lag∞n, Monday, 18 May 2015 21:59 (1 week ago) Permalink

am i wrong in feeling like a big part of his appeal is "he's just a schlubby looking guy trying to do the right thing" from a left-leaning pov? not just "it's funny bc it's true," but "i really relate to trying hard not to be a sexist + racist despite the programming of my culture."

that was the subtext of his racism bit on SNL i think. "i'm trying so hard not to be racist but those thoughts keep creeping in"

yeah, i thought that his schtick might just be his schtick but it supposedly comes from a place of actual self-examination and deconstruction, so if the allegations were true that's kinda bad news generally for self-examination and deconstruction vis-a-vis not being an asshole.

lag∞n, Monday, 18 May 2015 22:01 (1 week ago) Permalink

that ppl on ilx might think there are intellectual shortcut paths to either not being an asshole or to mitigate being an asshole should maybe not surprise one I guess, but attributing overmuch based on one post is always a danger

he's made himself the public face of admitting you're an asshole, it's supposed to help you stop that kind of behavior is what my takeaway from his act was.

lag∞n, Monday, 18 May 2015 22:08 (1 week ago) Permalink

like i'm aware that a performer's public face differs from his private one but a huge part of his act and appeal is that he connects the two; his stance i thought is that his comedy comes from a really personal space that he's fearlessly revealing to the public for the edification of us all

there's a lot of snark being thrown around re: CK's persona or whatever but there's been a lot of Louie that I've found to be unusually perceptive and even touching w/r/t modern masculinity, dating, aging, self-loathing, gender dynamics and especially parenting. that's why I find this aspect of him, if true (which it probably is - these things are almost never just made up for kicks) exceptionally depressing.

simon otm abt how louie seems perceptive abt issues of masculinity in his show and that this, if true, would be a kick in the teeth. i don't know that this is more likely to be true than not. i suspect j0rdan probably has some better sources up his sleeve but i really have no idea. i have seen people make shit up before, especially when they are protected by anonymity. it's not like this is a victim talking, it's just this bro goes by the name of "jason"

i have no problem believing that a long-married dude let back out on the single scene a comedy icon could be guilty of dirty talk/self-exposure presumptuousness. i mean there's a seinfeld episode about average joes incorrectly making that leap in logic. but if he's gone past that to blocking doors and acting like some playground creeper, that's really depressing. i hope it's not true, but at the same time, if it is, i don't give much of a shit how the word gets out.

i have to admit that the rumors mentioned here have kept me from wanting to see new episodes. i guess even though i'm skeptical about the veracity of the secondhand rumors posted by buzzfeed, they have kind of burrowed into tmy brain nonetheless. which is one reason it's irresponsible to post them, honestly.
