Did You Know?

Trivia

Ellen was originally supposed to be a recurring character but C.K. enjoyed Kim Hawthorne's work so much that he made her a cast member. Because she was hired as a recurring character, she did not have a contract with HBO. During pre-production on the second season, Hawthorne wanted to leave the series to work on a pilot. C.K. convinced HBO to pay Hawthorne for the entire second season to keep her. The second season was never produced. See more »

Goofs

Louis' apartment has a window in the kitchen looking out to a building in the distance, but in the hallway there is a door to another apartment (straight across from Walter and Ellen's apartment), which would be right behind where Louis' window is. See more »

So funny, but definitely not for the timid viewer
11 July 2006 | by AgentThirt33nSee all my reviews

After viewing the first few episodes of this sitcom I feel compelled to let my fellow IMDb-ers know that they may well extend their life spans by seeing this show! That may seem to be an idle promise, but if the old adage "Laughter is the best medicine" holds any truth whatsoever, then this may be the fabled Fountain of Youth! It should be mentioned here that it is necessary for the viewer to be comfortable with base humor and some male frontal nudity. I enjoy all types of comedy, from Pee-Wee Herman's silliness to the time tested Three Stooges slapstick, from Rowan Atkinson's brilliant pantomime to the highbrow satire of Fawlty Towers. I think this show may set a new standard for modern ribaldry! The story involves a poor family with one child, living in a shabby tenement building and doing what they need to survive in an unusually unfair world. Many story lines revolve around the couple's desire to have a satisfying sex life while trying/not trying to conceive a second child. Their discussions are frank and to the point with many instances of crude language (never in the presence of their lovely daughter, however). Also, Louie (played by Louis C. K.) has a heck of a time convincing his African-American neighbors that he isn't a racist, while circumstances conspire against him to seemingly prove just the opposite. I laughed until my sides hurt because I imagined that this was art imitating life in a real and honest fashion. Let's face it, most people will be themselves when they think there is no-one watching, and I KNOW you're all imperfect, just like me. Enjoy the mirror's reflection, if you're not too self-righteous!
