I loved it when Amy came to the hearings dressed in a milk-maid outfit, braids in her hair, just great. Couldn't appear more innocent, and she played it perfectly.

I have no hope whatsoever.

First of all, Louis C.K. belongs in the "overrated" section, in my opinion. I find him generally unfunny, with tiresome, slow and repetitive standup delivery, leading...
