I've seen two episodes of Louie. The first was terrible but I love Louie CK's standup so much that I gave it another chance and the second episode was great. Fingers crossed for the third.

It's hit and miss and he really doesn't come across as sincere, but the material is so good it makes up for it.

There's a number of episodes where the stand up was the only part worth watching, but it's good enough to devote half an hour to every week.

Anybody seen the new BBC Sherlock series?
I have heard completely amazing reviews for this but cannot find it. Want to know if anyone has seen it before spending $30 on the DVDs

I watched the first episode and really liked it. They're hour and a half long episodes, and I think there's only 3 episodes per season.

Anybody stream Netflix via Blu Ray player? Is it easy? No lagging issues? I'm thinking that'll be the easiest thing for me to do when I move. As long as it's Wifi ready should it work no problem, or do I need something specific with apps, etc.?

I stream netflix through my ps3 and it's smooth as butter.

It depends on the Bluray player. Some interfaces are really smooth, some aren't. In my experience, all the gaming consoles are great for Netflix streaming although the Wii can only do SD. The Bluray player I used had a clunky interface but worked fine, and I also have used a WDTV Live which was the worst of all them because it always was changing resolution based on internet speed even though I had a consistent 20 MB down speed. If I had to choose the best player for Netflix, I'd go with the 360 even though you do have to pay the Gold subscription which made me go to PS3 since I don't do online gaming.
