Summary of Season 1 (2006) - 2 discs

This explicit HBO show stars its creator, Emmy-winning comedy writer Louis C.K., as hapless mechanic Louie. He works part time at a muffler shop, while his wife, Kim (Pamela Adlon), brings home the bacon as a full-time nurse. In this postmodern take on "The Honeymooners," Louie also spends his days minding the couple's rambunctious preschooler, Lucy (Kelly Gould), and hanging out with various friends and relatives.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this series definitely earns its TV-MA rating. Characters use a wide range of swear words, and the show includes nudity, explicit sex scenes, and very mature subject matter. Parents should also know that within the raw subject matter are smaller discussions about more positive themes -- such as gender equality, racial awareness, and the importance of eating healthy. Unfortunately, these topics easily go unnoticed given the series' explicit nature.

Sexual Content

Sex scenes and frequent, blunt discussions of various body parts and sexual acts. Nudity, masturbation.


Some physical fighting among characters, including occasional scenes of characters slapping each other on the face hard enough to leave light-but-visible marks. A gun is visible but not used or discussed in a positive context.


Frequent use of a wide range of curse words, ranging from "dick" and "ass" to "f--k."

Social Behavior

Promotes family life, albeit from a dark point of view. Class, race, and gender issues are common.


Product labels of food items are visible, including Nature Valley Trail Mix, Sun Maid Raisins, Foster Farms Chicken, and Rolling Rock beer. Fast food items include meals and snacks from McDonald's and Cinnabon.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adult consumption of alcohol and tobacco clearly visible. Drug use is discussed but not shown.
