Tv Season Info

Season 5 of this funny and thoughtful sitcom finds Louie (Louie C.K.) in a slippery dilemma: he and Pamela (Pamela Adlon) are in an open relationship, at Pamela's wishes, which allows both to explore other love interests, but Louie tries to take their relationship to a new level. He also faces high jinks from daughters Lilly (Hadley Delany) and Jane (Ursula Parker), a conflict with his brother Robbie (Robert Kelly) and the annoyances of going on tour. Jimmy Fallon, Matthew Broderick, John Lithgow, Michael Rapaport, Judy Gold and Michael Cera are among the notable guest stars this season.

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.
