Louis CK & Two Sitcoms plus “Nurse Jackie” on Showtime

“Louie” on FX and “Lucky Louie” previously on HBO, now on DVD. These two sitcoms are written by and star stand-up comic Louis CK. You either love him or you hate him. He’s extremely crude and I don’t recommend him for the sensitive or faint-of-heart.

All I know is I laugh and I laugh HARD at these shows. I bought the Lucky Louie DVD at a Hollywood Video sell-out for .99. I’ve played the 6 episodes over and over, with and without the commentary. I’ve been watching “Louie” on Hulu and Casttv.com. If you want to watch something different and funny, I recommend finding these shows.


I’ve also discovered “Nurse Jackie.” OMG. This show is up there with “Breaking Bad” with mixing comedy and drama. It’s a smart show and I love all the characters. Zoe, Mo Mo, “Coop,” I only have 8 episodes (same DVD sale) and again, I re-watch them with and without the commentary. I never realized that I liked commentary! Amazing what one will watch when they don’t have cable.

Also, did you know you can go to this place called a “library” and they will let you borrow DVDs? You just have to show a card and you can walk out without paying a cent! Amazing! I hear they have those book thingies too.

Kathy Griffin managed to get herself in the headlines TWICE last week!!

Way to go Kathy!

Ok. I forgive you for your temporary attachment to Kate Gosselin and I assume your stand-up proves that you were kissing-up for material. Mean, Kathy, so mean. Kate Gosselin is a single mother of 8, count ’em, 8 children. You have to know when she laughed at your spoof she was burning up inside. You had lunch with Kate and “the bodyguard she’s banging” and, I imagine that Kate didn’t think that was funny one bit.
You are forgiven, as if you care.

Kathy used Levi Johnston for a publicity stunt. She first took him to the Teen Choice awards (after all, he’s still a teenager) and he was on her show this season. Now that Levi and Bristol are re-united, Kathy gets the chance to show her heartbreak. Poor Kathy.

In other Griffiin news, Kathy said that Scott Brown’s daughters, you know, the ones that he tried to pimp out at his victory speech, were prostitutes. So, the man is “speaking out” and making it a bigger deal than he had to. Now Kathy tweeted this last night:

haha,Scott Brown is the Spencer Pratt of the US Senate.THIS is a great time 2 come c me live. OF COURSE I’m lovin all the publicity LOVIN IT

. . . . . oh how I wish I could see her live.

Today on the View Elisabeth Hasselbeck is blowing a gasket. She called Kathy “Scum.” Smart move, Hasselbeck. Smart move. I don’t think you can have a battle of wits with Kathy. Good luck with that.
