Trivia

Louis C.K. has said that continuity is not hugely important to his series, with each episode having its own "end goal". Louie's immediate family has been a major example of this. In Season 1, two different versions of his mother appeared (one a miserable, selfish old woman, and the other a kind and likable middle-aged woman) and he had a loser brother named Robert; in Season 2, his mom doesn't appear, and Robert no longer exists, having been replaced by two sisters (one a likable, tough, pregnant woman, the other a mentally disturbed mother of a sullen teenager) and Season 3's finale introduced another sister portrayed by Amy Poehler. Different actresses have also been used to play his daughters without any explanation. See more »

Louie, please save comedy for us!
16 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Louis CK is a genius and he once again proves it by making this miraculously humorous show.

The humor is of the best kind - dry and effective, and Louie faces some real problems that are common for all of us at one point - aging and going through tough (but hilarious) changes in life... Seeing THAT from Louie's point of view is particularly interesting... The show itself is refreshing new gem in the sea of mediocre popular boringness that we see today on TV.

Anyway, I think that this show is underrated and needs more reviews...

Can't wait for the second season!
