There is a gut-wrenching honesty to Louis C.K.’s comedy that makes it impossible to stop watching. One might describe Louie as a more relatable Curb Your Enthusiasm, but that would do the writing and the show a disservice because Louie is a real person (not a Hollywood bazillionaire) and seems to crystallize many universal but […]
Kenny Powers is an epic, archetypal character living out one of the greatest lost-glory stories of all time. I’ve watched it three times now, and it keeps getting better. This is a crew that has hit a sweet spot, and it’s inspiring to watch their creation.
I wanted so badly to like Parks and Recreation when it first came on; but it not only lacked funny, it was also pretty snoresville. So it was with great trepidation that I resumed watching Season 2, after hearing people everywhere say: ‘It’s really funny’. And now I say to you, dear reader, it is really funny.
I think Jon Glaser is the driest comedian alive. He’s not for everyone, but I’m convinced that everything he does is genius (and funny). Delocated (produced by PFFFR, creators of awesome/fucked, Wondershowzen).

This is the perfect cartoon. It’s like a person with a well-developed personality. It’s gentle, and has a wide-eyed enthusiasm for pure imagination, but the characters use contemporary, up-to-the-minute slang and usually deal with insane situations in realistic ways. It is one of the most weird, creative, and satisfyingly entertaining shows I’ve seen in a long time. Also, the animation reminds me of late 80s computer games or something made on MS Paint.
