I am sorry to say this, but there are very few shows as funny as Louie on TV right now. Honestly, funny is not the right word. How about complex and awkward and uncomfortable and genius? Those all seem to fit better. It is a comedy(?) show like we have never seen. Imperfect people trying to figure out how to live in an imperfect world. Well, amazing news for fans of this stellar show. Louie comes back May 5th for his highly anticipated fourth season. Trust me, there is no one more excited than me.
The reason a show like Louie takes so long is because Louis C.K worked out a deal with FX where they would allow him to make the show he wanted at the pacing he wanted. This means there are no rushed or forced seasons, and also, that C.K has his hands in every aspect of the show. From writing to producing to directing, Louie really is C.K’s show, in every way. So while the wait may have seemed quite long (and it was almost two years), you need to understand the end product is always worth it. The show is stellar, and unlike anything else on TV right now, or ever for that matter.
So mark your calenders and scream it from the rooftops. Louie comes back May 5th, and all is well with the world again. Well, maybe not Louie’s world (the show can get pretty nihilistic), but for our world, at least.
