    Agreed, but more importantly, Louie is back this Thursday Andy that show is even more hilarious.

    The Louie episode with Dane Cook was unbelievable.

    Louie and Wilfred might be the best hour of comedy outside of The Daily Show/Colbert.

    I tried watching Louie the past two years but it's just not funny to me. It's more cringy and I get frustrated watching it. The ones I remember is when he sees some guy get decapitated and one where he has the f-buddy offer from a mom at his kid's school. Funny premise, but so awkward and cringy to watch.

    I love Louie's stand up though. I'll give it another shot.

    the awkward is what makes it funny.

    the one where he goes to Afganistan was amazing, btw. really special show.

    I'm with you on this one.

    Love his stand up, don't like the show.

    I know that's the idea, but the few times I've seen Louie, the awkwardness just makes it hard to watch. Curb Your Enthusiasm however has the perfect balance of awkward, cringy, and hilarious.

    I'll give Louie one more try, but even if I don't watch his show I will absolutely go see him on tour this fall.

    Curb is way more awkward than Louie.

    I actually think you are coming at from the perspective. Louie is more a show that is a bunch of little short films about NYC with some comedy mixed in sometimes. It isn't really a comedy in my opinion. But it is a fantastic TV show.

    I loved it. In a weird way it is actually a bit like Louie.

    I watched it...it's very realistic (in my opinion though I think a lot of others would disagree), but I know a lot of people who act and talk exactly this way, so it hits home for me and is pretty funny.

    For the most part though, I think show is kinda crappy.

    I watched the first three episodes of the BBC series Sherlock over the past few days and thought they were great. Unfortunately, Netflix doesn't have season 2 yet, so I can't see any more. However, I discovered (I must have been living under a rock) that a subscription to HBO (which we have) also includes free sign-up for HBO Go, which will allow me to watch a whole bunch of former HBO shows that I've always wanted to see but haven't had the chance to yet (Oz, Deadwood, The Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, etc.)

    I think iTunes is offering the first ep of series 2 of Sherlock for free.

    I was touting Sherlock a few weeks ago in this thread when Season 2 was airing on PBS.

    I think PBS had all the episodes on their website until last Tuesday, I think they just took them down.

    In any event, Sherlock is an awesome show.

    Yep. That's probably going to be the second show I get to. I'm working my way through Oz right now (5 episodes in.) It doesn't have the atmosphere I thought it had (at least yet), but there's definitely no shortage of interesting characters and dynamics in the prison. I always find it amazing when a show can create literally a dozen or more compelling characters in only a few episodes while other shows struggle to even create one.

    A little OT here, but I love the way Louie is doing his tour. Selling tix for $45 straight up with no fees, straight from his site, totally avoiding Ticketmaster. Voiding all tickets that are being resold. Brilliant.
