Editorial Reviews

From the uproariously unrestrained mind of comedian Louis C.K. comes the year’s most outrageously original comedy! As a newly-divorced, well-meaning father raising two young daughters, Louie struggles to cope with his strenuous mid-life shake-up, and his stand-up comedy provides a gleefully warped reflection of his hectic, everyday reality. There are disastrous first dates, indecent proposals, high school bullies, booze-addled play dates—and more. Featuring stellar guest stars such as Matthew Broderick and Ricky Gervais, Louie is unfiltered, off-kilter, and hilarious!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Series, but a disapointing DVD/Blu Ray Release August 11, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Louie Season 1 is comedy spliced with some thought provoking moments and general insight into a comedians life, be it heightened dramatically for more comic effect.
Now the season itself is great, but the Blu-Ray/DVD combo release is a great idea but can fall short on some fronts.
I have to admit one big issue being you can get fingermarks on the discs which isn't such a big deal, but some temperamental players will then struggle or not play the disc.

The other issue is that this is a release to the public so carries an adult rating, so why does it still have censored swearing and censored remarks? I'm all too aware that on American t.v. this is normal procedure, but really a DVD release needing the same treatment?
I'm not bringing this up as i want to sound like the swearing is a big deal or i need this to enjoy the Season, but if its going to be ultimately censored even when it comes to release to DVD and Blu Ray you might as well consider cutting those scenes as the viewer is not getting the material as it was intended to be delivered.

Great Season, DVD/Blu Ray Combo is a decent idea which could well be utilized better in future. I look forward to more seasons, but uncensored DVD/Blu Ray would be more prefered as it feels like your not getting the material in its entirerity as Louis C.K probably wished you to view/hear it.

Format:Blu-ray
Somehow, the FX Network has become the go-to channel for cutting edge entertainment. Their successful comedy line-up features some of the brightest and most daring programs on the air--embracing an outrageous lewdness that regular network TV doesn't touch. Louis CK is certainly a talented comedian and I've followed his exploits for many years. But in truth, I was no huge fan of his short-lived HBO endeavor "Lucky Louie." With so many peripheral characters, this non-traditional family sitcom simply spread itself too thin and never felt particularly cohesive. There were moments of brilliance, but the "everything but the kitchen sink" approach to comedy never really allowed a closeness to the main characters. I say this not to be berated by its fans (which will happen) but to explain that I almost didn't watch "Louie." And that would have been a big mistake. Here, Louis CK has refined his character (pretty much playing himself) into a lovably awkward every man struggling to get by.

I feel, without a doubt, that this is his break-through moment and performance. Incorporating comedy club footage into each episode (but to more laughs and purpose than Seinfeld did), some of these sets are fall-on-the-floor funny. Pushing past the edge of good taste, Louis CK leads you right into the crudest scenarios possible but never loses you. I won't contend that this was the best show of the year--but it easily had some of the biggest singular laughs of the current TV season. Interspersed within the club material, we see Louie struggle with life's daily misadventures. Whether taking care of his daughters or exploring the dating realm, this is a guy you can identify with and share in his frustrations and challenges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mold breaking show. June 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
If you've seen Louie's stand up you know what to expect, laugh till you're in pain humor. But more than the gleeful excess of serious and honest gut laughter this show provides, there are also some really painful moments in which we find Louie put into an awkward or terrible situation. These scenes are so tense and gut wrenching it's almost painful to watch, but in a good way. It's not like the stressful wacky scenarios of Seinfeld, but situations that evoke real feelings of discomfort and embarrassment that's I find really compelling, and an excellent partner to the in your face comedy of the inappropriate.

The balance between regular joke humor and the much more subtle comedy of these horrific situations is struck admirably.

I think this show is a good example of what a real genius in the field can do with complete control of a production.

Its unique, shameless, and most importantly insanely funny, much like Louie himself. So glad it's getting multiple seasons.

2.0 out of 5 stars Subpar Blu-Ray Release August 3, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Please note that my review does not in any way mean to suggest that Louie is anything short of a spectacular series. This is a great show, but there's something really wrong with this release.

For a show originally shot in HD, I'm really confused about how the transfer to Blu-Ray could be so disappointing. The video quality on these episodes is very uneven, particularly for very dark scenes. Considering how great this show looked in HD during its original broadcast, it's a shame that certain sequences on the Blu-Ray are washed out. I'm guessing this is due to the compression needed to mash the episodes down onto two Blu-Ray/DVD hybrid discs. Whatever the cause, it might be better to stick with the original DVD release and not go with the DVD/Blu-Ray combo version, or just go with digital streaming.

Considering how much time and effort creator Louis CK put into a show that looks as good as this one does, it's a real shame that the studio dropped the ball in transferring the series to Blu-Ray.

release them separately!!
Everyone seems to be up in arms over the "flipper" disc format, but I personally don't mind it. Since I only have a Blu-ray player in the living room, it's nice to know I have the option of watching the show on DVD in my bedroom. At the current price of $25, I think it's a pretty great...
