Holy crap… this is well, crap. Lucky Louie is a perfect example of appealing to the lowest common demoninator. The tagline is “some men have a dream, Louie has a family.” What the heck is that supposed to me? Families suck? Real nice HBO.
Just as they did with Deadwood, this new series feels compelled to use every opportunity to curse. Not because it helps the story. Not because it explains the character. Every character does it… and it sounds cheap each time.
The toilet humor, added to the extremely poor acting, horrible shooting style, and unfuriating laugh track, leaves Louie very unlucky. To call it lame is an insult to lameness.
