Not hilarious, but it's good to have Louie back.
May 17, 2018
Unlike nearly all TV comedies, it's driven not by the ritualistic rhythms of the gag, but by the rhythms of everyday reality.

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

"Are you funny?" Tough question. Louis is, but Louie isn't, which is a matter of this season's risky and rewarding design
June 28, 2012
Louie is back, as raunchy, candid, and hilarious as ever.

It's a masterful balancing act pulled off by C.K. He makes you squirm, he makes you think, he makes you laugh.

This masterful character study of a midlife comedian's melancholy misadventures is pretty marvelous.
June 28, 2012
This is a comedy that succeeds by pretty much ignoring any and all "Don't go there" dictums.

June 28, 2012
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.)

Louie, one of the greatest sitcoms on TV today, is raunchy, foulmouthed and edgy in many ways. Yet its dirty little secret is that the show is firmly rooted in classic comedy.

June 28, 2012
There can be no doubt that Louie is the best comedy on television.
June 28, 2012
The new episodes start well, then keep improving, with narrative clarity and a fresh visual beauty.
June 28, 2012
Having watched the first five episodes of Season 3, Louie is as great as ever and seems to be shifting into a higher gear, when no one thought that option was even available.
June 28, 2012
The shock of Louie is how it reveals those and other programs to be the condescending mediocrities they truly are.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 28, 2012
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
The series remains smart and thought-provoking but it's also quite funny.
