Review of Louie Second Season DVD.
Season 2 of Louie is now available on DVD. The show is a glimpse into the life of comedian Louie C.K. It’s not a reality show, but the stories are based on C.K.’s real life experiences. The show is a kind- of like the dark side of Seinfeld. Like that show, Louie is built around clips of Louie’s stand-up performances. The performances serve as a framing device for the episode and usually pertain to what’s going on in the episode. Where Louie really departs from Seinfeld, which was a much more traditional sitcom, is that it is not situational and it’s not even always a comedy. That’s not to say funny stuff doesn’t happen on the show, or that Louie doesn’t find himself in some unusual situations. However, the show is more of a slice of slice where funny things happen along with the mundane, the tragic, and the downright depressing. While I found the first season to be more laugh out loud funny, the second season resonates more on an emotional level.

Go here for complete review.
