    I was a big fan of his last show and his stand-up but I couldn't even get through the first episode. Something just feels off about it.

    Try it again, it takes a few minutes getting used to but it's gold. Episode 3 with Ricky Gervais was hysterical. Give it another shot. Cool

    I have enjoyed every show so far. Every episode has been better the last. It's nice to see a show that doesn't cater to the lowest common denominator, or attempt to squeeze out every possible lame joke, or appear to have been written by (low-ranking) graduates of a SitCom 101 class, who bashed it out in less time than the episode's play length.


    I really liked the episode with Pamela Adlon. It was sort of an homage to their all too brief "Lucky Louie" program (which actually was a bit too sitcom-y).


    The quality of the show, coupled with its intentional avoidance of trying to have something for everybody, will no doubt spell its doom, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

    I, too, think the HBO show was absolutely unwatchable - horrendous. Louie IS comedy gold!!

    To be honest I wasn't sure about it at first either but it grew on me as the season progressed. I think it takes time to get used to the unusual format and realise that not every scene is written for laughs.
