    As a fan of most FX original series I have tried to get into this show but just don't find it funny. Your mileage may vary.

    I feel the same. I guess I'm just not a fan of his show, though his stand up is alright.

    Love it. One of the best shows on TV right now. Helps if you don't expect a comedy like Archer or Always Sunny, where it's just nonstop jokes. It's really just a bunch of short films filtered through Louis CK's comedic sensibility.

    Re: Louie

    Tonights episode sucked. I liked a lot of what I saw last season, but this episode was garbage.

    This is kind of the way I feel about it. I'm a huge comedy fan, I love all genres of comedians. I think Louie is pretty funny, but it seems he gets a lot of his mileage from other comedians telling you how great he is as opposed to actually being the funniest guy out there. Seems most comics are jealous of his work ethic and a lot of them do admire him for it.

    I actually liked the show he had on HBO a lot better. It was more sitcom like and gave me a lot of actual lol moments.

    Don't get me wrong, I think the guy is funny. It just seems that he's the guy comedians are always talking about being the best and I can think of 5 guys off hand that I would go see first.

    Bill Burr
    Adam Carolla
    Jim Norton
    Patton Oswalt
    Joe Derosa

    There are more, those guys just came off the top of my head.

    Comedy is a matter of taste though, so if it makes you laugh, then that's a good thing.

    Re: Louie

    The show can be pretty slow, I usually get a laugh or two every episode.

    I feel like they need to develop story lines more. Something comes up in the show and is never touched on again.

    I didn't get to see the premiere missed a lot of shows last season, too, because of work schedule.

    He doesn't always bat 1.000, but some episodes have been excellent. I can relate to a lot of stuff probably because of similar age demographic. A lot of times I prefer his "fictional" storylines to his actual stand-up.
