But anyway, the premise is that Kimmy Schmidt is one of four women who's been locked up in an underground bunker for 15 years by a crazy cult reverend guy. (Who ends up being played by someone we all know and love) So the police finally find them and she decides to start anew in NYC as a happy go lucky person whose joy is infectious and she's also kind of mentally a 15 year old. It's really fun and I'm looking forward to the second season.

In related news, Community Season 6 is really good so far. It's a shame they had to lose John Oliver and Jonathan Banks out of obvious necessity, but it doesn't appear any worse for it.

I really should catch up on Community. I've seen a lot of episodes, probably most of them, but I'm not fully caught up.

The season starter for Louie was pretty simple, but also very funny.

It was okay, but considering that was the first episode of the season, kind of meh.

It did feel like an odd episode to start the season on, that's for sure. Felt more like something you'd get from the middle of the season.

It is damn good. Seriously, amazing. Hyperbole maybe, but it's perhaps the best thing that has come out from the MCU. Bold, poignant, complex and very entertaining. The performances are excellent, the style is great, the fighting is awesome. And just the ideas contained in it. After Better Call Saul, it's the best new show of 2015 so far.

Well, Danger 5 is pretty much the best thing I've ever seen.

The latest episode of Louie was good, but Michael Rapaport's performance was stellar. The whole thing with the gun was a little "Magnolia" or "Stray Dog", which wouldn't surprise me since Louis C.K. sure loves him some movies. It kind of made me wish he should do a movie with that format, just two guys or people meeting and talking around the city and having some adventures. Kind of like what his buddy Chris Rock did in "Top Five."

I must be behind, because I've only seen the first two episodes. When does the show actually air?

Yeah, it's Thursday nights. I missed the last episode as well.

I just watched it. I have to be honest, I've never liked Rapaport, so I didn't particularly enjoy seeing a whole episode devoted to him playing a fairly unlikeable character. I think these episodes have been a bit underwhelming.

It's weird, because I've seen quite a few movies Rappaport has been in, but I only remember him in True Romance and I liked him that. As much as I liked this episode, I have the feeling that Louis C.K. must be at least a bit burnt out. I mean, he's said so himself that doing this show can be a little tough.

I thought the latest Louie was kind of meh again. I wonder if we give him too much credit? Last season wasn't particularly funny, but it felt like he actually had something to say. This season so far, it looks like he's trying to be funny, but has been kind of saddled with the Pamela storyline, which I just don't find much humor in. Seeing him constantly be put down by her is bit wears a bit thin. I'm hoping this storyline is over, or close to it.

You know what show is funny? Brooklyn Nine Nine. I forgot how funny this show is. I've missed a ton of episodes and have been catching up on it. Still the best comedic ensemble on television. Really, I've watched Community, and I just don't like any of those characters or find them funny. With Brooklyn Nine Nine, I find the entire ensemble funny. I like these characters. Andre Braugher continues to be amazing in a very dead pan role.

This kinda spurs me to get back into that show. I was all over it when it started and then just... stopped.
But I agree, it's hilarious and I really need to catch up.

I completely agree with you about Louie. I really get the sense that Louis CK might be burnt out. He has done something really admirable but I wouldn't be surprised if it has run its course on him; writing alone can be exhausting, but also having to write, direct, edit, produce, act, etc. can be very tough. This season could improve, but it's getting hard to watch each episode now.

And Brooklyn Nine Nine was something I really enjoyed and thought I'd catch up to it, but never really watched again. I actually got buzzed because on my flight to London, they offered a few episodes and I thought I'd watch them but I didn't, and on my flight back, they didn't offer them at all.

I think Brooklyn Nine Nine is now the only show that can get a big laugh out of me at least once an episode. A lot of it comes down to the performances. I didn't like Sandberg, at first, but I feel like he's been reigned in. And everyone else is great. And the writing has been fine tuned to their performances. Like, Braugher plays such a dull character, yet the funniness comes from his amiable, and super dry performance:

I also think Melissa Fumero is really adorable, and funny in what could have been a thankless role. Being the suck up, go getter, she could have come off as being a no fun teacher's pet, but she plays up the nerdiness of the character in a way that's really endearing. There was a moment in an episode where she finds she's going to have to work after hours with the Captain, and she does this little, "in your face" type shimmy. You've never seen someone so pumped to do extra work.
