LB Sees LOUIE – LATE SHOW (3-Parter)

The Good:

  • Spot on, as true-to-life as mass entertainment has ever gotten
  • All those inspiring ROCKY allusions
  • This is the greatest argument ever made on television for not going into any business that has to do with showbiz

The Not-So-Good:

  • Horrifying in its presentation of human venality/greed/arrogance/et al
  • All those hokey ROCKY allusions
  • This is the greatest argument ever made on television for not going into any business of any kind anywhere, or even leaving your home, or interacting with other other humans except – maybe – David Lynch

In Other Words:

I fucking loved all three episodes. A must-watch for anyone seriously considering going into the big-time Hollywood entertainment game. Because it forces you to ask the eternal question: What do you do when the dark side of the thing you love most is also its bright side?

Run, do not walk, to wherever you can see LOUIE Season 3, Episodes 11, 12, 13

Don’t just sit there – WRITE!
