Season 1

Critics Consensus

Acerbic, offensive, and smart, Louie has an air of melancholy that separates it from other pessimistic sitcoms.

Critic Reviews for Louie Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (10)

Someday he may find the scripted sitcom that captures his humor. Not this time.

Jun 29, 2010 | Full Review…

Somebody needs to step in and tell Louis to round up a few friends and save his stand-up for the comedy specials.

Jun 29, 2010 | Full Review…

As brash as his material can be, a melancholy mood nonetheless hangs over the show. It gives Louie' a heart.

Jun 29, 2010 | Full Review…

"Louie" rarely overplays things. The heavy stuff is always offset by the star's comedic genius, but the show maintains a realism that you simply can't shake.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

There's something undeniably endearing about Louie, who even at his most shocking seems willing to acknowledge the force of language - and who generally reserves his most cutting words for himself.

Jun 29, 2010 | Full Review…

A brutally funny slice of rant that bears a surface resemblance to Seinfeld in the way that the show organically builds its episodic vignettes around the star's stand-up shtick.

Jun 29, 2010 | Full Review…

Often profane and occasionally offensive, Louie won't be to every viewer's taste, but it's a more interesting show than many with a definitive point of view.

Jun 29, 2010 | Full Review…

A looser indie cousin of Seinfeld/Curb, it's a sublime distillation of C. K.'s blend of jovial fatalism and brutal honesty.

Nov 1, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

After watching four episodes there's a lot to like in Louie.

Louie doesn't come close to sucking. Here's to a season of more awkward moments.
