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

i totally spelled the show wrong. i should go to bed...

this show is so awesome that it deserves 40 threads tbh

can you change the thread title to louie? i hate when i do things like that. this show waa made for me. lots of shows are. the t.v. knows what i like. he's such a good writer.

so is this gonna be the new louie thread now?

it's pretty amazing. i always think i'm beyond amazement cuz i'm so old and jaded but then something comes along and amazes me. i like that.

i think the shrink is an amazing recurring character

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]

I already went all over the moon about the poker scene on the first thread, but that was also amazing

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.

scott seward, Thursday, 12 August 2010 05:18 (4 years ago) Permalink

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.

the matthew broderick scene. oh man, i laughed and laughed.

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

I've seen this thing sometimes, perhaps on here, saying he's like brave or ballsy for not being funny... but I think if a funny guy can be Real & Funny instead of just Real (and the show does get pretty real), then that is a lot more impressive and worthwhile to me... Just one guy's take

at his best he's a damn good and moving story teller. see the episode where his friend is contemplating suicide. but yeah some of them are just strung together bits which can be hit or miss.

Ugh loathe adlon's character so much

Οὖτις, Sunday, 19 April 2015 23:39 (1 week ago) Permalink

it's partly the fact that she inspires so much loathing that I enjoy her character so much. their relationship means a lot to me, and I like that Pamela/Louie episodes tend to have a collaborative feel (bolstered by Adlon's story credits).

fuck me, archipelago (Simon H.), Sunday, 19 April 2015 23:44 (1 week ago) Permalink

I feel like she brings the show to a dead halt. Once she appears everything more or less becomes an exercise in frustration (both for louie and the viewer) and that's p much all ya get.

would've made more sense to have swapped episode 1 and 2 around (pamela tells louis she wants a more casual/open thing so THEN he has sex with the pregnant woman) but yeah i know...

they're both as bad as each other obv

nashwan, Monday, 20 April 2015 07:43 (1 week ago) Permalink

the show has always done one-off episodes that don't call back to anything else or even exist in the same universe, but it was still weird to make that one the premiere
