Paul Scheer sheds some light on The Room, lets us in on a secret in The Disaster Artist, and answers your questions. Plus, we explore the origins of midnight movies and take a look at IMDb's Top 10 Stars of 2017.
After going through all the necessary steps to train for being the host of the Late Show, he gets bad news when he hears that Jerry Seinfeld has already been chosen. But still after getting this news, he gets a hint to keep going and to go ahead and do his first audition show. Written by
Some of these episodes and scenes seem like they are part of a dream,
though some actually are. They are abstract acts to demonstrate a
feelings or beliefs of the character. Characters behave oddly and say
things that usually is reserved for thought. Louis seems to be
addressing taboos in our society ranging from fat women, failure,
masturbation, age, etc. Some of the scenes get to be very uncomfortable
to watch and this is where I think Louis feels the most comfortable.
Maybe he just wants to be different in his show, but if that is the
case, he needs not be as this show is not only unique, I think the
later seasons are some of the best shows put on the air and be studied
in later years. Yes, some shows can be preachy, but they are not
overbearing. This is not South Park which likes to shove it down your
throat at the end of a funny episode, Louis does it with finesse.
Sometimes you wonder is that really him or is it just what he wrote. I
think the Late Show episodes are intriguing examination into how we
seek the failures, what success means and where we get our drive. I am

self-pity and its draining life power, which to most might be
This is the kind of show you walk away reflecting on rather than having
that Hollywood formulaic feel you get from most which leave you emptier
than before. There is nothing pretentious about Louis and in this
entertainment world of special effects and good looking celebrities
leading the box office, Louis stands tall with all his weaknesses to
bear and letting us see his wounds as he works on healing them. He
might single handedly veer us in a direction that most shows have
failed to do and when a movie does such as "The Birdman", which
actually seems very much musically and stylistically like the late show
episodes. At the end of Paul Newman's 1961 movie, The Hustler", when he
is about to play the game of his life, his character turns to a man and
says "Get on me, Bert. I can't lose". This is one such moment too, get
on and watch this show, Louis can't lose. He has paid his dues and it's
his time to shine with a bright light for the rest of us to see some
truths in our own lives.
