I liked the first season best. The show's very uneven. Sometimes it's very funny, other times really boring or gross or stupid. Too self-indulgent.


Louis C.K. has redefined comedy for me,and I don't want to go back ever !!!


Any idea if there and when will be Session 6?


is there realistic comedy show like louie ? i think NO , don't get me wrong i like not realistic comedy but i wanted something different and louie was the one . such an amazing tv show P.S. : english is not my mother tongue .


With Trakt's 1-10 rating scale I've reserved the Totally Ninja spot for only those shows that I consider perfect, or as close to perfect as a television series can be. So far only The West Wing, Arrested Development, and The Wire have been good enough IMO, to reach that spot... until Louie came along. The writing, acting, and directing of every episode is pitch perfect. Just go watch it!


2019-01-26: a little bit slack, green and simple. but it definitely worth watching by the life exp. from CK.


I think the seasons 1 & 2 were fantastic, but then it started to get really, hmmm i don't know, grey i guess. It isn't as funny as it used to and tho show got more depressed feel to it.


This show is as hit and miss as it gets. They'll have one funny/insightful episode and then next time the episode could be pure shit


yay season 4 airing! was missing my louie!


What an awesome show this turned out to be, simply love it!!!
