A TVWriter™ Don’t Miss, even if the Hollywood Reporter, which becomes more obsolete by the second, loves it. Sometimes even dying publications can get their swan songs right. (? Never mind. Sorry.)
Louie: TV Review
by Tim Goodman
Still TV’s greatest comedy, with observational humor, a sad-sack life, a fearless look into the mundane — FX’s “Louie” is a thing of original beauty…
The Bottom Line
A fictional look at the life of Louie C.K., based kinda-sorta on his own, filled with outrageous laughs, a DIY sensibility, no creative interference and the kind of ground-up originality that’s so simple and hilariously true that it almost shocks you with how naturalistic the show is…
In its third season Louie is the gold standard for comedy and it remains both ridiculous and humanistic as ever, like a show handed over to a guy who didn’t want to make something the way that everybody before him had.
