Louie on FX - Page 12

post #166 of 231
I don't know why....I can't really explain it, but I really didn't like the Afghanistan episode at all.

From the obviously not in Afghanistan setting, to the performance in the tent, to that annoying country singer. Oh, and the convenient helicopter landing and charming little grab the duck and fall down gag.

Real life Louis wouldn't do that...he'd let the duck go.

I dont know...I was really bored.

Best moment was the "spank me daddy" mom cameo. I LOL'd

I definitely agree with you. I am a huge fan of almost every episode, but this one really came off as corny.

It seems to be garnering extreme reactions. I must be getting soft in my old age because I thought the corny bits were underplayed and very poignant.

sure its heavy handed and the themes were broadly painted... but

I just view this episode as the ultimate FUCK YOU to the other comics out there who doubt that Louie CK is the current king of the hill... Louie had dane cook on an episode and hashed out things instead of being petty... now he's tackling things like actual USO tours and themes of war...

I don't see adam sandler or dane cook doing anything remotely poignant and ambitious as the Afghanistan episode... even in movies... and this was a just a single episode in a small series on FX.

It looked like a short film by a great director at times. The way he let scenes linger, like playing the whole country song about dead soldiers, or the US vs Iraqi soccer kickaround.

Apparently the new season of Louie just started a week or two ago? I had no idea.

I didnt see this week's episode, but the premier was really shitty and disappointing.

I missed the premiere, but last nights episode was hilarious.

Season has been good so far. Last night was probably one of the best in recent memory, up there with the Joan Rivers ep.

For those that couldn't figure out what was going on in the season premiere, Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
CK has said that he wants nothing to do with continuity with this show. One minute his ex will be blonde, the next she'll be black, etc.

Shit, I've been so focused on Breaking Bad that I've ignored Louie!
post #176 of 231
But that doesn't start up for over a week!
post #177 of 231
That's how focused I am.

I forgot just how awkward and hilarious some of these scenes can be.

"Jesus christ you're crazy!"

"You do want to see me again, don't you?"

"Yeah, sure."

That made the episode for me. I called my sister later that night and she apparently watched the whole thing with my grandma sitting on the couch next to her... I can't imagine the awkwardness.
