I usually can't stand child actors, but I just adore Louie's youngest daughter.

She's incredible. She's got a real future in comedy. I love the way she skirts the line between cute and obnoxious.

^ I'm catching up with season 3 and I enjoy every scene with the youngest girl. I actually find her obnoxiousness adorable

Great end to the arc.

^ Agreed.

Was the Louie boxing scene at the end supposed to be interpreted as him still continuing to improve himself, despite getting screwed over?

The three parter was as epic as a three parter should be. Funny and beautiful. I had to admire Louie's suit too. Made me realize that Louis would actually be a great host, but of course I hope he never becomes one. He wouldn't be able to drop the kind of wisdom he does now hosting a network talk show.

The piano music that was first introduced when he was "offered" the pilot in the first ep of the arc, and then carried throughout the other two episodes, was hauntingly beautiful and did a great job of both capturing and heightening the overall mood. And I think the boxing was supposed to signify Louie continuing to try to improve himself, because the scene of him yelling at The Late Show marquee showed that he had won, at least as much as he was able to win in his situation.

Great ending. The part with the kids and the card was really touching. He's become a great actor this season.

I take it to mean he's still thinking "Fuck You". He was told, and mentioned to a couple other people, that this was a make it or break deal for him. He'd never get another shot. But he tried his hardest, actually put himself out there (he wasn't happy just doing stand up, but he was complacent), and he lost. But he knows he can do it, he knows he can be better, so fuck what the rest of the world is saying, he's going to keep on trying, if only for himself.

Agreed +9000 and thanks.

I've never seen Louie so confident as he was in this past episode (read: during the test reel).

^its just a "rocky" parallel.

the second they parodied the rocky theme song/scenes you could easily telegraph the ending of this arc was going to be that Louie would prove himself to be worthy, but like then ending of rocky he'd still end up losing the decision.

a ton of people tend to forget that at the end of the original rocky movie he actually loses the match: a decision loss to the defending champion.

if none of the other rocky movie sequels were made you'd have to assume that he would have fought a rematch with the knowledge that rocky now not only has a puncher's chance but actually does have the chops to be the "champion".
