Critic Reviews for Louie: Season 3

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (10)

The beauty and bravery of Louie is that he allows us to see him without that armor, as messy and needy as anybody else.

Louie CK starts his new season the way he ended the last one: a little raunchy, a lot bewildered and a lot funny.

June 28, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

One of TV's better shows, comedy or drama, because this series often succeeds as both. (But beware, it's not for all viewers-- there's a lot of vulgarity here.)

This is a comedy that succeeds by pretty much ignoring any and all "Don't go there" dictums.

"Are you funny?" Tough question. Louis is, but Louie isn't, which is a matter of this season's risky and rewarding design

Not hilarious, but it's good to have Louie back.
