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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.

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...
