Louie

CK has a sitcom that every stand up comedian doesn't dream of. So many of them came close to their version of authenticity but in here, Louis CK, the creator, floods out every such famous show in one wash. Among many, many other reasons to go through this philosophical journey with CK, is to inspire from the way he films this New York City. As in the world he creates here increases the quality of television that lops off commercial branches and deepens the root through pure essence of the character, fooling you into believing that this is not a TV show. It is no crowd pleaser. And this shouldn't come as a surprise considering CK's image as an edgy comedian.

He pushes the line after every joke. You try and heal yourself and he keeps scratching the wounds harder. Another reason why I am drawn towards his comic style is that the frustration that he embodies- any stand up artist would complain and show his or her anger towards the mundane activities to connect with the audience and mock over the situation- for the laughs doesn't just wing by for the crowd and instead it is weaved out as a philosophical or ethical questions raised and discussed.

The series takes the bar a little low, optimistically, and maybe that is why people find it more sad that it actually is. But if we think about the world CK paints, the characters aren't particularly sad in contrast to the world. It is just that we are set in a dark and comical yet fair world. What's CK doing here is staging a part of life we haven't seen. It is those same streets and familiar character, it's just that we haven't seen them like this, saying things like this, expressing with a notorious behaviour like such. Where the only issue should be is how effortful it sometimes feel to warp into this world, this tedious part of the narration consumes a lot of energy from us, the viewers and Louie, a comedian; nay, a father.

Country Drive

I love this. They shot a guy enjoying a complete song. You rarely get to see a scene like such and more importantly enjoy it as a part of narrative. Plus, for someone like me who is looking for Louis to spend more time with his daughters, this is a gold mine, simply sweet and amazing.
