May as well stick this here.

Got around to the first season of Louie the other night. Putatively the most recent sitcom by stand up Louis C. K., it's difficult to imagine how it got aired. That it's been renewed for a second season on FX must be a fuck you to the industry by an exec who knew a murder of pages were coming for his keycard.

Finkbug bless the guy for that.

The first season is on Hulu now. I say plow through it all. If not willing to commit, watch all of the first 7:00 of "Poker/Divorce". Jump to "Bully" and watch it all. It's not going where you think it is, again and again and once more. Jump to "God" and marvel that hit basic cable. More transgressive by far than movies I remember being picketed.

 

[waves extra legs raving] It is very dirty, thoroughly offensive, and most episodes are diptychs instead of three acts.

no idea why that double posted, and no delete button so:

 

Since got this hanging post, the pilot only hints at where the season goes.

Thanks for the tip, Finkbug. I'm always up for some transgressive entertainment, esp. if it's free. Will check it out on Hulu.

I think you're saying it's bad, right?  Or good?  I can never tell.

Louie is scary. He is walking a razor's edge in a lot of scenes. It's good scary, tho.[Image Can Not Be Found]

Hey Steerpike! Have you seen HBO's first 15 minutes for Game of Thrones? Watching that makes me all giddy. (I'm such a geek!)

No, I'm being strong!! Must hold out for the premiere. If I watched the first 15 minutes and then couldn't get more for 12 days I'd have to go lick my signed GRRM hardcover edition and that would reduce its value.

Go buy yourself a nice paperback (or Kindle) copy of "A Game of Thrones," by George RR Martin. Become obsessed like me and Toger.
