Louie - Season One, First Episode

This was a bit of a mixed bag for me. Basically the show is divided into segments: there's Louis CK's stand-up stuff, and there's two parts which are more story based. The stand-up bits had me chuckling, but they're not the best material I've heard Louis perform. The first story part, which involved Louis and a bunch of kids on a disastrous trip to the zoo, was half-baked. The second part, which saw Louis on an awkward first date with Chelsea Peretti, was funnier but ends on a really random note.

Bit of a middling first ep, but I'll stick with and see how it progresses.

EDIT - For those who didn't catch it the first time, Fox will be airing David Cross' sitcom The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret at 9:30pm on Tuesday. I saw the ad during a break for Louie and I was all like "Ooooh". I didn't catch the full series first time round.

1. An Impossible Job (1994) - Rick: "This legendary documentary about Graham Taylor's disastrous reign as England manager paints him as an avuncular, unlucky and only occasionally misguided figure - rather than the clueless idiot portrayed by the tabloid press - and remains remarkable for the level of access to training sessions, press conferences and, most extraordinarily, the matches themselves. One thing that really struck me, and which may count against Taylor, is that he's often seen on the bench during a game just having a bit of a chat, rather than planning his next masterstroke. That might be why his planned masterstroke is usually just "Bring Wrighty on" or "Bring Nigel on". There are countless great moments, though Lawrie McMenemy's classic repetition of "I don't believe it... I don't believe it" is a personal favourite, along with that famous bit of the three men on the bench all giving John Barnes the same instructions. A final rogue observation: Gazza must have been really annoying to have in your squad. (3.5)"

*SOME SPOILERS*
2. Bored to Death (Season 3, 2011-12)
- The first season of Jonathan Ames' deadpan, post-modern noir series – something like Wes-Anderson-does-Raymond-Chandler – was very good, especially the pilot. The second was even better. So when I heard the show had been cancelled after its third season, I was gutted. Watching the final run, though, I can see why, and really it doesn't feel like a great loss. The cast tries hard, the Brooklyn locations are great and some of the dialogue still zings ("The rat's on fire!" and "We still have the briefcase" both made me guffaw), but Ames seems completely out of ideas when it comes to story. Jason Schwartzman's central PI has hardly any crimes to solve, aside from an exciting one near the start that's over too soon, and an over-arching mystery to do with his biological dad that's badly-paced and has a horrible, indefensible pay-off. His sidekick, Zach Galifianakis, “breastfeeds" a baby whisky, accidentally steals another child and shags a pensioner (a shame, as when he’s given anything halfway decent to do, like skipping down a street or arguing with arms dealer Patton Oswalt, he’s hilarious). Ted Danson, meanwhile, spends most of the season sparring with his irritating, needy daughter and her over-aged boyfriend. The rest of the season is just spent going on and on and on about weed. Bored to Death used to be about writing, crime-solving and witty one-liners. Now it's about incest, granny sex and making a baby drink alcohol that a grown man has smeared on his nipple. And weed. Lots and lots of weed. Bored is right. (2)

But not single episodes.

Have I read that wrong? I thought it was just the one episode you were reviewing - like the other thread.

I think that if you're not really getting on with the format in general,you probably won't like the rest of the series. Although I despair for the soul of anyone who isn't blown away by the opening of episode 2.

Regarding the ending, it's not so much random, just how bad that date is going taken to its most extreme. I loved it.

Perhaps I didn't articulate my issues clearly enough (which is possible), but it was the execution of the material and not the format that didn't sit right with me.

With the two story segments, I felt there was potential for some seriously funny stuff to be mined from both situations if they had been given their own episodes. But as it is, the first segment wasn't very good and the second segment was quite funny, but at the time it felt liked he didn't know how to end it and just slapped that on at the end. The naked old lady was brilliant, though.

I will stick with it though. Occasionally I find that with some shows the first ep tends to be a bit meh, but then I really start to get into it as the series progresses.

It's one of the things he's talked about somewhere, think it was in his WTF interview, but that final shot was something he always had in mind for it, especially with the expense it required for that tiny scene. There's a few moments like that along the way, where you're not sure if something is happening or if it's just something that's in his head. One of the things I like about this short film format is that it allows him to play with an idea without either making it into a sketch show or feeling the pressure to make it feature length and just pad away at the idea to justify the running time.

01. Arrested Development: Season One (2003-2004) - 4.5/5
So begins the long televisual education of one PA. The first season is mired in some romantic subplots that don't go anywhere - the Jane Lynch subplot has very little in it that's funny, let alone interesting, and the episode with Heather Graham's ethics teacher seems like an exercise in telling us stuff about Michael that the show is much better at showing us - but otherwise this is some damn good stuff. Hurwitz has constructed an immortal rogue's gallery of conceited, self-involved, grotesquely privileged, delusional twits, and they play off each other with the kind of easy tension that can only come from having decades to learn how to hate and use each other. Even Michael, the show's ostensible straight man, is a petty man too caught up in his own martyr complex to really be a decent guy - he just comes off better when placed against his manipulative parents and vainglorious siblings. Bateman plays him to a tee, exasperated and bubbling with contempt for the idiots around him but never self-aware enough to realise he fits right into their little gang. He's not the highlight, though - it's hard to identify one when the cast is so strong, but Jessica Walter is just perfect as Lucille ("I don't understand the question and I won't respond to it") and David Cross nails Tobias' obliviousness (his deadpan delivery of "You're out of the band" to George Michael at the end of 'Best Man for the Gob' just rings with self-obsession), so let's go with them. And on top of all that, it's also really fucking funny, from the ways it plays with form (the way it always cuts the sad music/Law & Order stings short for the next scene is brilliant) to in the ways it builds a watertight structure where everything in the first half is delivered on in the second (the standout episode is easily the best example of this) and everything in between. Should have started watching this a long time ago.
Standout Episode: Pier Pressure ("I was going to smoke the marijuana like a cigarette.")

1. Nikita, season 2

Not the best show ever by any means but I enjoy it quite a bit, my favourite parts are when they go to "London" but it's clearly just Canada. Maggie Q is really good and I like how they've expanded the mythology from the (obviously superior) movie.

SModcast - No. 239 - Skip to My Looper

Kevin Smith had a bit of a chin-wag with Rian Johnson, and it was a fun listen, especially when they chatted about Johnson's religious background, creationism and geeked out over film novelizations. Smith still has the irritating tendency to yell for no particular reason and any talk about Looper is soured when Smith rants against Bruce Willis (with whom he had a tough time on the set of Cop Out, apparently), but it was the best ep so far of a podcast which has been pretty patchy lately.

The best one so far, mainly due to the absence of Shannon Doherty. Admittedly Rose McGowan not the greatest actress but she's Hitchcock compared to Doherty's Uwe Boll.

An apparent Arthur conversation yesterday went from horses being unicorns without horns to 'so a rhino is just a fat unicorn then'?

It's a great show, but is it getting on your nerves that Lydia has a new partner every season? (dunno about s5)

1. The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Season 1
Much better than I expected, for a cartoon it was really good at setting things up (like the time travel guy in the ep that introduces Cap) and then paying them off later in the season, in fact there was one thing set up near the end that I assume there leaving till season 2, which I thought was pretty bold. Yeah it was a really fun show, Wasp was a surprise as I had never been that interest in her character before but I really like her in this - now I'm really hoping she's in the ANT-MAN movie in 2015.

WTF, with Marc Maron - Mel Brooks

Growing up as a kid I always really liked Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety and Spaceballs, so I spun Maron's Brooks interview with great interest, and it was a superb listen. Brooks is a great raconteur, and at 87 years old he's just as pin-sharp and on the money as he was in his younger years. The stuff this guy remembers from when he was just 8 years old (fuck, I can't even remember what I did last week) is incredible, and he has lead such an interesting life.

Yeah, a little bit. Ruben's the best one she's had so far though. I;d like to see him stick around.

Haven't had chance to listen to Monday's yet, but just gave a little whoop of joy when I realised today's was Carl Reiner. Hoping for lots of Dick Van Dyke Show stories. I just wish Tom Waits and Albert Brooks would accept the offers and go in to do an interview.

1. Community, season 3
The best one yet. The stuff they get away with on here is brilliant, at least half a dozen episodes in this season done in styles that would probably terrify most other sitcoms and they all worked perfectly.

Here's hoping Reiner can convince Brooks to do it.
