Considering the rising success Louis C.K. has seen in the last few years, largely due to his Diy work ethic in Louie as well as the waves he made regarding the self distribution of his last few stand-up specials, “Late Show Part 1” is a much harder sell than the similarly autobiographical Louie segment, “Oh, Louie”, in which C.K.’s troubles with network executives in developing an honest and authentic family sitcom were depicted.

But the best part of all is that it will be a weekly examination of Every Star Trek episode from Every Star Trek series, one by one. Six series, 30 seasons, 726 episodes. They’ve just started, so it’s only two episodes in so far – ”The Cage” and “The Man Trap” – making it easy for you to catch up. Here are the details:
