1636 - Louie: season two
It's a treat because each little sequence is us watching Louie try and make sense of his world, or play with the ideas inside of it. From visiting a racist elderly relative, to getting concert tickets for his daughter from an enemy, to professing his love for someone who has absolutely no interest in him, it's a show that is fearless and honest and uncomfortable and real. Few artist get to a place of freedom like Louis has with this series, and of those that do, I'm not sure any are as successful as getting their point across as he is.
If you start watching one new series, make it this one. It's phenomenal.
