Dating, working, friendship, the mixed bag of wonderfulness and tedium that is raising kids--all of these things clearly take up a huge amount of real estate in Louis C.K.'s mind.Louie is smart, cinematic, and bitterly honest, constantly dancing between revelatory moments and hysterical bursts of humor that are both surprising and touching
This is hands down, the best comedy on television. Surpasses the heights of the first season. "Country Drive", "Come on, God" and "Duckling" are three of the best episodes of televison I have ever seen
Dating, working, friendship, the mixed bag of wonderfulness and tedium that is raising kids--all of these things clearly take up a huge amount of real estate in Louis C.K.'s mind, and watching him tenaciously sort through his reactions to challenges in those arenas is always interesting, occasionally profound and frequently funny.
Every aspect of this show is just hilarious. The fact that he recasts some members with different roles, introduces new family members, and bits of his stand up are just a few examples. Louis C.K. takes complete advantage of his artistic freedom and delivers every episode.
Great to see this amazing comic getting his due. The series is hilarious, and feels real. It encapsulates many parts of Louis C.K. 's (yes, that's the correct spelling of his first name) themes throughout his years of standup. It totally makes up for Life with Louis, which was generally a **** show hoping to find a vehicle for him years ago. Honestly, the best show on FX at the moment, which is saying a lot at this point. A must-watch for anybody with a proper sense of humor!
Louie isn't bad, but it's mostly not particularly funny and spends a fair amount of time being depressing. If you like Louis CK you'll like this, if you don't think he is great then it's going to be hard going.
