5.0 out of 5 stars Mold breaking show., June 12, 2011
This review is from: Louie: Season 1 (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo in DVD Packaging) (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.
