Critic Reviews for Louie Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (8)

Still funny and still not for everyone.

Jun 23, 2011 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

If Louis CK wasn't such a pitilessly logical black-sky thinker, he'd still be a brilliant observational comic.

Jul 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The second season of FX's Louie is an example of the kind of fine entertainment you can get when you give a talented artist like Louis C.K. a chunk of money and free reign to make whatever he wants.

Jun 23, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The terrific Louie is such a fully formed, cogent expression of comedian Louis C.K.'s distinctive mind that you'll know a few minutes into the first episode whether his sensibility aligns with yours.

Jun 23, 2011 | Full Review…

It's either the saddest funny show I've ever seen or the funniest sad show.

Jun 23, 2011 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

What tennis balls are to dogs, Louie is to TV critics: We're obsessed.

Jun 23, 2011 | Full Review…

Louie is the most reliably unpredictable show on television.

Jun 23, 2011 | Full Review…

Louie once again quietly lays down the gauntlet.

Jun 23, 2011 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Louie is still wry and smart, but this time his show's misadventures spotlight a respected and contemplative misanthrope instead of a revolutionary firebrand.

May 11, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

It's a smart, thought-provoking show that deserved to be renewed.
