    Louis CK is awesome. Even Lucky Louie on HBO was hilarious, they should have at least gotten a second season out of it. I don't understand the hangups over acting. It must just be me, but I like how they kind of put the story (as limited in scope it may be, but it's a 22 minute show right?) and comedy over the acting. These people are comic performers, they aren't really acting-actor-actors. As long as they deliver the lines, I'm golden. But obviously they aren't going to leave in the cuts where they don't deliver the lines. Still, it's hilarious. Of course I see how this shit 'offends' a ton of people, because there are people who truly don't know how the world works. Louis CK finds the shitty stuff that's TRUE, and twists it in a hilarious, sardonic manner that really makes you realize how these things ARE funny-- as long as you don't have to deal with them...

    Last night's episode was kind of uneven, but I still laughed. I thought the ending was hilarious. I still haven't seen last week's...gonna have to do that during lunch today.

    I loved it. it was avangard, now he's totally free forming it. its hard though because the show doesn't have a true formula other than you know that they'll be standup and situational comedy, but this episode it got turned on its head (even the dramatic monologue with the chick) then breaking the barrier with the last scene.

    spoiler alert: the last scene really was telling, because it showed that the blond was a very good actor and louie actually kinda seemed bummed that she was taking his direction and doing it so well (LOL like he's angry at her doing a good job at acting and how he hates it).

    Wow, that was fast. I'm surprised. But I'll agree, it is indeed great news!

    +1 The heckler episode was amazing, great way to address so many peoples' concerns about his 'acting' and hopefully people can just focus on the comedic substance.

    I really liked The League last season, but for me It's Always Sunny has lost a lot of quality. So many of the gags seem forced, and often the acting just isn't that good any more. I'll probably still check it out, but last season was a big let-down overall for me.

    The one I miss so very much is Testees. God that was a funny show. The one where they went blind is television gold.

    I initially thought The League was gonna be kinda dumb from the early previews but i've heard great things. Gonna have to torrent it or something

    Ya The League was infinitely better than I expected.

    Always Sunny still the funniest show on tv

    Louie, Rescue Me, and Sons of Anarchy just round it out

    Oh sweet Jesus, this show just keeps getting better. One thing that I think is really fitting is how many of the endings are just sudden and awkward; they really complement his style of standup. And while my mom is great, I know a lot of moms who generally fit the category he was talking about. That one had me in stitches almost from beginning to end.
