In fact, Ern started liking the show in the fourth episode where we got to see more of them. It's not Emmy-winning material, but it's fun and we like the main character. It's probably the best thing on MTV (Teen Wolf is a close second) and better than we expected it to be. There was even some good advice on it too (astounding for an MTV show). You can't control what happens to you, but you can control how you feel about it.
Louie is a show we weren't interested in for a long time. It's about a sad-sack 42-year-old bald guy. Didn't we already see that with Curb Your Enthusiasm? But no: Louie's humor is brilliant, low-key, kind of depressing, and entertaining. He manages to be politically correct AND modern/"enlightened" at the same time. Louie has two cute little girls who keep him from being completely pathetic and selfish. Scenes are cut with clips of Louie doing stand-up comedy and the show has some good guest stars. Louie is on Instant Netflix, and episodes are only 22 minutes long, so we recommend checking it out if you are mature. This isn't going to be one for the teenage crowd. Don't marathon it until you are done with about six or so. The first few are kind of a bummer if you watch them all at once. Ern has decided that Louie is her soul mate and does not know how she ever got along without this show.
