    No shit?
    Businesses that make money by collecting & selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.

    Is it just me, or is something about that show incredibly depressing?

    Like all genuinely good comedy, yes.

    Whats interesting is that when I rewatch old episodes, the balances tip away from depressing and towards incredibly funny. I dont think that its a case of me being inoculated against the depression, I think its a case of me being somehow cathartically cured of it, which is really the whole point of art.

    I like to think that I have a high tolerance for feel-bad drama, but some reason I can't really stomach Louie. I got through season 1 and left it at that. That's not to say that it's bad.

    You're too sensitive for this world.

    Maybe so. I'm almost entirely desensitized to gore, death, and suffering on screen. But watching this man try to reassure a fat chick or half-heartedly break up with his girlfriend makes me cringe and want to take a shower.

    Then again, there was a time that I couldn't bear the awkward situations in The Office, so I might just be a freak and very weird dude.

    Sorry for derailing this thread with my feelings. Carry on.

    I'd love to hear the thinking behind this. While a lot of comedy is based on "pain" of some sort, a lot of genuinely good comedy is not. Depending on the subject, human reaction, whether it's depression or joy would be unique to the individual.

    I'll be happy to hear this is just a level. That would be funny and yet somehow depressing.

    Write screenplays for 10 years, that should clear up the confusion.

    Is that writer speak, because it doesn't answer the question for the few who haven't written screenplays for ten years.

    Maybe ten more years of therapy are needed.

    Have to disagree that it would be required. Say Fawlty Towers for example and other shows that are in the farcical end of the spectrum.

    Somehow missed this entirely, this post and the release of a new season. MBA and shit I guess. Still weird that it totally escaped my radar.

    On the plus side I'm 4 in and loving it. Just so great.
