    Maron may not have the depth and adventurousness of “Louie” or the crude energy of Jim Jefferies’s “Legit,” but it’s consistently well written (or improvised) and smartly cast.

    Maron portrays a war against self-pity that's unusually resonant for its willingness to plumb the legitimately pitiful.

    Based on a preview of four episodes, the second season of Maron will be as laid-back and lighthearted as the first.

    As sitcoms about talented, self-defeating assholes go, though, Maron is pretty good, though it has yet to plumb the sublime depths of self-loathing showcased on the likes of Louie, Girls, and Veep.

    [The premiere episode] begins with some decent gags (Maron wanting to profess his love with a toe ring!) before he gets to groaners.

    His TV show has none of the ambitious reach of his best podcasts, and it keeps pretending to be edgier than it is.

    Hallelujah, it is back. Nice to see a show that evolves, and I am excited to see things evolve. A great start! Keep it coming. Kudos to IFC for building a killer brand. Expand

    Maybe this show is not so meaningful and sharp as Louie, but there is much of intelligent sense of humour and Marc Maron could be really funny. Good character and his real-life adventures may be this what you looking for after you liked Louie. Expand
