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.

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.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Unlike nearly all TV comedies, it's driven not by the ritualistic rhythms of the gag, but by the rhythms of everyday reality.

May 17, 2018 | Full Review…

This was (while not the funniest), the best-directed, acted and most profound of the recent run, and we hope it bodes well for C.K. pushing the show into stranger territory in the second half of the season.

The series remains smart and thought-provoking but it's also quite funny.

Bizarre, inventive, and bold.
