    Anyone else watch this show? I just found out it existed a few days ago (which is crazy because Louis CK is pretty much my favourite stand-up comic going right now) and goddamn its great. FX basically gave Louis free reign to do whatever the hell he wants (within a certain budget) and the results are gold, Jerry! Even if Lucky Louie left a bad taste in your mouth, you'd be doing yourself a disservice not to at least check this out. The humour is totally different (kind of like a surreal Curb Your Enthusiasm) and much more in line with his stand-up stuff.

    If the idea of a show where Louis CK can do whatever he wants doesn't convince you, check out these clips:

    That's a bit of an understatement, but I agree!

    Good idea with the hulu link! I'm in Canada so the videos don't play for me, but the more people watching this show the better!

    I love how unpredictable this show is. One episode will be full of comedy and the next could practically be called a drama. Though I think the scene with the dentist in the latest episode was one of the funniest so far.
