Product Description

Product Description

Louie is filtered through the observational humour of Emmy® Award-winning comedian Louis C.K. Loosely based on his own life as a successful stand-up comedian and a newly single father raising two daughters in New York City, each episode of Louie puts a spotlight on his everyday ordeals, his quest to find love and his pursuit of humour. The single-camera comedy is shot entirely in New York and features a unique mix of Louis C.K.’s stand-up comedy and scripted shorts.

From Amazon.co.uk

The brilliance of Louis C.K.'s semiautobiographical sitcom came into focus in just the second episode, in which a caustic poker game among comedians turned into a trenchant discussion of homophobia in comedy, with Louie himself uncomfortably on the hook for things he's said. Every episode of Louie has moments like this, when what's funny peels away to reveal surprising insights into human behaviour. Louis C.K.'s humour cuts through social illusions in the tradition of George Carlin and Lenny Bruce, but with a unique sense of ruefulness; Louis C.K. doesn't seem angry so much as perplexed and frustrated. He tries to get motivated but sags into an orgy of ice cream and marijuana. On a date, he faces a teenage bully and ends up humiliated--and then he follows the boy home, where he ends up sitting with the boy's father, commiserating about parenting. Even scenarios that could be fodder for conventional gags, like going to the dentist, end up in strange places; under the influence of the dentist's gas, Louie hallucinates talking to Osama bin Laden and convinces him not to be a terrorist. Much of the comedy revolves around Louie's status as a divorced dad with two daughters. Arranging play dates, buying a dog, and trying to give the girls moral lessons are all opportunities for chaos, embarrassment, and examinations of the subtle but potent social forces that shape our lives. It's a little ridiculous to argue that comedy or television can be important, and Louis C.K. would probably scoff at the idea--but truly, Louie feels kind of important. And at the same time, it's really, really funny. --Bret Fetzer

Format: Blu-ray
'Louie' has been described as a comedy, and in certain areas even a 'sitcom'. Let's be clear from the start though - this could be one of the weirdest, most genuinely unusual shows ever made. Kudos must go to FX in the US for giving Louis CK free reign to write and direct, because what he has produced is truly a love it or hate it show. Even if you're familiar with his stand up, don't take that as a guarantee you'll enjoy this (it's not like Ray Romano in Everybody Loves Raymond or Jerry Seinfeld in his show, or even CK's own Lucky Louie).

The show takes the format each episode of a mix of stand-up segments and some vignettes from Louis' life. There's no link between each scene and often no recurring characters other than CK himself. It could be anything (an excruciating first date, or CK getting a visit from his mother, or a disastrous attempt at acting) but often involves CK mocking himself or putting himself in some mortifying situation. The tone of the comedy is one thing that often comes closest to his stand up segments - honest, edgy and frequently uncomfortable. Also, some of the scenes will veer into almost drama-like territory. Don't expect the traditional set-up/punch line format of other shows either - CK isn't afraid to drag out scenes until you're not actually sure you should be finding it funny (note the scene where he dresses down a heckler).

Then there's the 'God' episode...not really any laughs here but an intense flashback to his childhood when a nun takes extra steps to help her classroom understand Jesus' suffering. A heavy, intimate episode - you wonder what FX execs thought when they saw this one.

A misanthrope with a heart of gold. For all the foul mouthed rants, don't be fooled. This guy is wise, humane, and above all, very funny. The episode on the joys of modern air travel destroyed me. Had to hit pause to recover.

Given how strong some of the situations depicted in Louis CK's award-winning comedy series are, why is the bad language bleeped?

Most definitely smile-out-loud. Sometimes laugh-out-loud. Occasionally eeeugh-out-loud!

After 9 seasons of It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia, I watched the pilot for Community but it didn't take so somehow I landed on Louie and am now on season 3. I like it but bare in mind it's a comedy/drama, it won't be for everyone. I only new of him through a couple of movies and saw him on Letterman. He's a likeable guy, funny but not hilarious. This shows he is very talented as he created, wrote & directs the majority of the series. There is now 4 seasons.

I couldn't say if this is comedy or drama. It's none and both at the same time. It's quirky, it's funny, it's endearing and heart-breaking all at once.
The one show I would spend my life watching over and over again. Brutally honest; as if someone transported me on the set and played out bits and pieces of my life. All of the uncomfortable thoughts I've ever had are here, worded by a brilliant Louis C.K.
I am in love with this show.

I love this series so much. It's original, brutally honest and funny. If you like watching intelligent TV then this is about as good as it gets. I won't add any more than that as JPE has put it all down in his excellent review above.

Sometimes more sad than funny, too many fart-balls-dick-s*** jokes, but this is still great TV. It changes sitcom I'm such way that you can't really call it a sitcom anymore
