In terms of thematic issues, Louie tends to treat episodes as individual installments rather than conducting season-long arcs. But it’s fitting that the Season Three finale, “New Year’s Eve,” returns Louie to his lonely and isolated state that he’s been dealing with not only for much of this season but throughout the entirety of the […]Read More FX, Louie, Louis C.K., New Year's Eve
The final episode of this fantastic three-part installment of Louie has our hero reaching a pinnacle of self-discovery, but he’s also come to realize how very few people he can trust in his life. Of course, there’s always his daughters, who continue to pull at their daddy’s heart strings with every scene, but in the cut-throat […]Read More FX, late show, Louie, Louis C.K.
As Louie delves deeper into its fictionalized Late Night War, the picture is starting to come into focus more and more. Of course, C.K. is commentating on the nature of the late night business and the idea of how fierce competition, even amongst professionals and old friends, can bring out the selfish prick in anyone. A […]Read More Chris Rock, FX, jay leno, Late Show Part II, Louie, Louis C.K.
Louie can get pretty dark from time to time. I mean, our hero has witnessed a guy literally losing his head after getting hit my a truck, for goodness sakes. But the show’s tone is highlighted best when it delves into the darkness of the human psyche. On the surface, “Late Show, Part I” might seem […]Read More david letterman, FX, jay leno, late show, Louie, Louis C.K., part I
It’s no secret that Louis C.K. is a fan of the distinct two-part episode structure (tonight’s episode marks the 14th time in less than three seasons there’s been a slash in the episode title). He does this to varying levels of success — I’ve discussed my theories in two-parters “Telling Jokes/Set Up,” “Barney/Never,” and “Ikea/Piano Lesson” […]Read More FX, Looking for Liz/Lilly Changes, Louie, Louis C.K., Season 3
Throughout the series’ run, Louie has explored the theme of fatherhood several times through his experiences raising Lily and Jane, and while he’s shown time and again that he’s a great dad, we’ve gotten very few peeks into Louie’s personal life outside of his kids and his romantic relationships. He had a brother in Season […]Read More Dad, FX, Louie, Louis C.K., Season 3
In last week’s episode (along with many before it), Louie proved that it can successfully integrate a two-part structure in its episodes, with two different short stories sharing common themes coming together for an entertaining and thought-provoking half-hour of television. But while “Ikea/Piano Lesson” had plenty of memorable moments, I couldn’t help but feel like it left […]Read More FX, ikea/piano lesson, Louie, Louis C.K., marc maron, Sarah Silverman, Season 3
As with many of Louie’s two-part episodes, each installment examines a different side of a particular issue. In Part One, it’s mostly about Louie’s quest for love and though we meet this girl, it’s all presented through his point of view. We don’t really get to know her until the actual date in tonight’s Part […]Read More FX, Louie, louis, Louis C.K., Manhattan, New York, Part 2, part II
Of all the recurring themes to pop up in Louie, the one that C.K. seems to gravitate towards the most is his character’s love life — or more specifically, lack there of. This is no coincidence, considering C.K. got divorced from his real life wife in 2008, and event that seemed to spark something within […]Read More comedy, emmy, emmys, FX, Louie, Louis C.K., maria bamford, New York, parker posey, standup
Tonight’s installment of Louie is literally a one-joke premise drawn out over an entire episode, consisting of a lengthy set up for the first 95 percent of the episode only for C.K. to revel the punchline in the final scene. When I put it like that, I admit, it doesn’t seem enticing at all, but […]Read More FX, Louie, Louis C.K., miami
Calling tonight’s extended anecdote to open the episode involving the sweet moments Louie gets to share with his two adorable daughters a misdirection would be an understatement, considering it eventually spiraled into perhaps the most humiliating and vulgar account of his pathetic sex life to date. Most shows would never even consider butting up such […]Read More allan havay, comedy, FX, larry david, Louie, Louis C.K., Melissa Leo, telling jokes/set up, TV
To call Louie the best comedy on television is mostly unfair. Sure, it may not have as many laughs-per-minute as perennial favorites Community or Parks and Recreation, or even newcomers Happy Endings or New Girl. But the honesty and unorthodox techniques behind Louie C.K.’s storytelling brings with it genuine, awkward, unexpected laughter unlike anything on TV, while […]Read More comedy, FX, Louie, Louis C.K.
