News & Interviews for Louie: Season 5
Louie, you are a nightmare wrapped in a fever dream. But that's my problem: depending on whose fretful sleep we're experiencing, the experiences of Louie's characters can be interpreted as monstrous or worse...arbitrary.
Watching Louie means looking at the world through C.K.'s eyes; and through his eyes, the world is never boring.
The initial takeaway from tonight's premiere is that the show is something it hasn't been for awhile: an absurdist comedy that makes actual, laugh-out-loud jokes.
If approached in the right frame of mind, Louie still remains, as its fifth season proves, one of the funniest, smartest pieces of television on the air.
Louis C.K., like Jack Benny and Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David, can make a simple trip to the store a very memorable experience.
And as long as Louie is continuing to express those thoughts in the wildly creative manners that he does... I'll continue to be fascinated by the subtle touches of C.K.
In Season 5 of LOUIE, Louie is a new kind of superhero. Like Wonder Woman, the canonical superhero he most resembles, Louie's distinctive superpower is love.
Louie, like the comedian behind it, is always funny, often crass, frequently insightful, occasionally artistic, and sometimes all of the above.
Louie has the enviable knack for turning the uncomfortable into the hilarious. It's a dexterity that helps make it TV's greatest comedy of the moment.
Audience Reviews for Louie: Season 5
Oct 05, 2017(all seasons) A one of a kind endeavor combining C.K.'s stand-up routines with a variety of short incidents and recurring threads that range from hilarious to awkward and from the very real to the deliberately surreal. Although some characters and incidents leave a weird aftertaste, most of them strike as very inspired. C.K. can be enjoyably crass one moment and startlingly sensitive or even artsy the next and this unexpected symbiosis of extremes (and a lot in between) renders "Louie" a very poignant affair.
Mar 31, 2017In the final season of Louie, for now, the show finally delves into the true life of an aging comedian. It's different from prior years, but fresh.
Jul 23, 2015No two episodes are the same. Louis is so funny and real - so good!
Jul 08, 2015Methought the season was good. Like any of his seasons.
Jun 28, 2015This is the shortest season so far, only 8 episodes, it is better than the previous one, more fun ... Jane is great! Now I'm up-to-date with it, so it's going to be a year till the next one :( great show... I'll give it an 8.5/10

Jun 09, 2015Brilliance in motion! Louis CK continues to give a wonderful performance as writer, director and actor.
Jun 05, 2015Great show albeit weird. Done Louies way or no way at all. At times incredibly funny and insightful, sometimes, it leaves you saying....what?
May 30, 2015Not funny anymore. He and his partner are trying (badly) to be like Woody Allen, ripping off Allen's ideas, settings, and even the music played in Manhattan.
May 30, 2015Just when you thought Louis C.K. was going to start losing some creative stamina with his sit-com, he turns out another season that's as sweet and smart as anything to come before it. I'll take off half-a-star though just because at eight episodes it's a bit sadly short.
