Maybe I'm in the minority... I just felt they took everything people liked about the first season and exaggerated it way to much, whilst also abandoning - not all - but most of the character side plots. It was basically the kevin spacey, monologue show. They jumped on that horse and rode it to death in my opinion. Season 3 they reined it back in... I think due to a lot of criticism it received for those reasons. But if season 4 continues in the vein of 3, I'll be happy :)

Louie was amazing. Haven't laughed that much in 20 minutes worth of tv in a while...

 

i'm excited to see where this season goes.  last season ended with what i thought was a teaser for the main overarching theme this time around, when Pamela Adlon's character convinced Louie that he could get his own TV show like Marc Maron was bragging about at the Cellar.

 

tbh i'm starting to get bummed because Louie keeps taking all the ideas i want to do for my films and making them much better than i could ever do -- but on the flip-side, i would love to see his take on the "show-within-a-show" concept.

New ep. of Louie is the first one I've watched. I laughed a lot. I got Curb Your Enthusiasm vibes even though I've only seen a few episodes of that show.

just watched his most recent special Oh My God from like 2013...and it's hilarious. 

his bit about dead pets is brilliant -- really inspiring stuff for young comedians trying to think outside the box in terms of structuring material.

I think his stand up is awesome, but only watched the very first episodes of Louie, does it get better after that?

i would say he is very consistent in terms of humor...he doesn't phone things in ever, and he knows the danger of over-saturating his audience.  but yeah, did you see the weed episode in season one?  or the religion one?  you might be missing out on some great TV, man...

Louie's great. New episode was hilarious. I started watching silicon valley last year to see what's up (I'm from San Jose) it ended up being hilarious, and I'm super excited for season two tonight

this week's one was amazing...

 

every segment was a 5/5; from the pants-shitting, to the open mic, to the scene with Pamela...

i mean for fuck's sake, they actually showed a waitress grating mozzarella on someone's tits -- that deserves an Emmy if you ask me.
