Deep inside we are all angels. Or are we?


  • Loudermilk is a dark comedy about the harsh realities of life.
  • At the center of the story is a recovering alcoholic who is about to get a chance at a better life.
  • The show highlights the importance of keeping a good attitude on life no matter what.

Coming across things you never knew even existed and realizing how good they are brings a lot of joy to us, and that was just the case with this forgotten gem that Netflix picked up a month before.

Now we are talking about a dark comedy series called Loudermilk that already became a fixture on the streamer's Top 10 list. Loudermilk is a series that focuses on the life and struggles of a recovering alcoholic and substance-abuse counselor with a bad attitude.

The role of Sam Loudermilk is played by an actor you may remember as Berger from Sex and the City, Ron Livingston. It's funny that he also had anger issues and wasn't too fond of his life there.

So in this series, Sam has a bitter attitude towards everything that surrounds him, and needless to say, life pays him back enough for him to hate it. He never fails to make those around him suffer, for the very sake of it. And it seems like he enjoys it.

Viewers loved the show because it was about as ugly as real life gets, but for the same reason, the other half of the audience couldn't stand its harsh revelations. After all, dark and edgy humor is not for everyone.

“I’ve never seen my husband laugh out loud at anything on TV until this show. Needless to say it’s one of our favorites and we are really hoping for another season,” Redditor GambykilledJanus17 said.

The first season of the show was released in 2017, and it ended in 2020 with season 3. The production company that made the show no longer exists, so fans are dreaming that now that Netflix has picked it up, maybe the platform will continue production.

Especially since the writers of the show once mentioned that they have the scripts for two more seasons.
