Liz Lemon, head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful TV show without losing her mind.
Louie is a stand-up comedian and divorced father of two girls. This series follows him through his everyday life, as he meets various characters, struggles with his love life and pursues humor. Written by
Louis CK has said that continuity is not hugely important to his series, with each episode having its own "end goal". Louie's immediate family has been a major example of this. In Season 1, two different versions of his mother appeared (one a miserable, selfish old woman, and the other a kind and likable middle-aged woman) and he had a loser brother named Robert; in Season 2, his mom doesn't appear, and Robert no longer exists, having been replaced by two sisters (one a likable, tough, pregnant woman, the other a mentally disturbed mother of a sullen teenager) and Season 3's finale introduced another sister portrayed by Amy Poehler. Different actresses have also been used to play his daughters without any explanation. See more »
I watched this show for the first time last week after Wilfred (another great new show), and I must say - Louie is wondrously on a WHOLE new level. Where have I been?! Yes, the show is quite explicit, vulgar, and just plain dirty - all of which I'm not a huge fan, but the writing/dialogue depicts the everyday thoughts and issues that are really running in the minds of the rest of us, but we're just too afraid to speak our minds. That's what really amazes/captures me about this show. It is rough around the edges submerged with complex, bizarre, vulgar situations, yet the overall tone of the show is so...simple, mundane. This very stark contrast is not only captivating and mind-blowing, it is very intense and disturbing to the human psyche. It is just a whole new level of comedy. I am thoroughly and mindbogglingly wow-ed.
