Ep. 15 - Louie: Season 1
Though the shame of quitting Twin Peaks still hangs over us, Hunting Seasons presses-on to the next item on the 'Must Watch' list: LOUIE. Created, written, directed and starring prolific stand up comic Louis C.K., Louie is a series of semi-autobiographical short stories (almost skits) about the divorced middle-aged lead living in New York City and trying to make his comedy career work whilst also raising two daughters. Often hilarious, occasionally depressing and always clever, Louie makes it onto the Hunting Season's 'Must Watch' list as a modern classic, paving the way for other confronting and awkward comedies that seem to plague the TV landscape today. Can a show with such high praise live up to expectations? Listen and hind out!
