Louie CK’s fictional self is a good guy with good intentions struggling to navigate the minefield of modern society. But rather than merely serve himself up as the butt of the joke, he dives in and unpacks the root causes of his anxieties.
Before we launch into the spring premier maelstrom, I wanted to take this bye week to talk about up some shows that slipped through the cracks. So here’s my roundup of a sitcom and two documentaries worth checking out.
With the arrival of season six, Community fans’ rallying cry of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie is closer than ever to becoming a reality. On March 17, the oddball sitcom from the equally odd mind of Dan Harmon premiered on its new home on the Yahoo Screen on-demand streaming service.
After the long, depressing slog that was my House of Cards binge, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, was a much-needed palate cleanser. The new Netflix sitcom is the first new project from the “30 Rock” creative team of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and it’s a charming, clever delight.
Forte and Schaal have great chemistry. Both are stellar comic actors and improvisers who bounce off each other well. The odd couple dynamic is entertaining; especially in the way both characters exhibit their implicit (and eventually explicit) disdain with the other.
