I love this show as it has this slow pace building up to great punchlines. The humor is often suttle with a dark and sad undertone. The show also catches the craziness of modern urban life and dealing with the problems of parenthood. I specially love the hidden humor and also drama (!) whilst dealing with the complexity of real life and how this show avoids oversimplified stereotypes. The characters are mostly full of depths and sprinkled with comprehensible madness.
Please keep it coming! Louis C.K. just added a whole new Dimension to my perception of his public persona. I read about critics claiming that Louis C.K. wouldn’t keep up digging into his psyche to extrapolate more content … but I really hope he does! I’d love to see Louis C.K. become an artist releasing a movie every couple of years. Directing it and featuring himself much like Woody Allen did/does.
On a scale of 1 to 5 stars I give this show a 6 stars rating.
Louie (American TV series)
Louie is an American comedy-drama television series that premiered on FX on June 29, 2010. It is written, directed, created, edited, and produced by comedian Louis C.K., who also stars in the show as a fictionalized version of himself, a comedian and newly divorced father raising his two daughters in New York City. The show has a loose format atypical for television comedy series, consisting of largely unconnected storylines and segments (described by FX president John Landgraf as "extended vignettes") that revolve around Louie's life, punctuated by live stand-up performances.
The show has been met with critical acclaim and was included in various critics' TV show top-ten lists when it premiered in 2010. C.K. has received several Primetime Emmy Award nominations for his acting, writing, and directing and has won for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series at the 64th and 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Amid an "extended hiatus" for the show, FX ended their business partnership with Louis C.K.'s production company, Pig Newton, in November 2017, after he confirmed that a series of sexual misconduct allegations against him were true.
