Editorial Reviews

Comedian Louis C.K. is back with another season of this critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated hit. Spotlighting C.K.'s signature brand of twisted observational humor, Season Two follows the everyday trials of single dad Louie as he struggles to raise his kids, advance his career, and somehow get some action in the meantime. Facing one bummer after another, Louie takes on inattentive crowds, insane relatives, and a hair-raising U.S.O. tour of Afghanistan. Featuring a stellar array of guest stars including Joan Rivers, and Chris Rock, Louie Season Two comes fully loaded with unrestrained deleted scenes and commentaries by Louis C.K.

Format:Blu-ray
Having been only a moderate Louis CK fan prior to catching Season One of FX's stellar "Louie," I found the initial 13 episodes to be absolutely fantastic. Without a doubt, this is his breakthrough moment and performance. "Louie" expertly blends the mundane with the profane. It can be awkward, hilarious and surprisingly real. I thought Season One had some of television's biggest single laughs of the year as it juxtaposed comedy club footage with Louie just trying to be a good person, a good father, and a good comedian in everyday situations. Oftentimes pushing past the edge of good taste, Louis CK leads you right into the crudest scenarios possible but never loses you. This is a guy you can identify with and share in his frustrations and challenges. I feel like Louis CK really lets the viewer into his world and invites us to partake in the unified silliness of humanity. Nominated for two 2011 Emmy Awards (one for writing, one as Best Actor in a Comedy), this show was also included on the American Film Institute's Best Program of the Year roster.

So I was really looking forward to this second season. I'm going to be honest. In its totality, I don't think the show was quite as funny as last year. But in many ways, the show deepened and became far more unexpected and interesting. While still the champion of the awkward exchange, many episodes didn't play for laughs at all. I'm not sure how others would compare this second season, but I found myself really respecting the chances that Louie CK took in his increasingly personal stories. Some of the memorable moments include life lessons from Joan Rivers as well as Louie's continued painful pursuit of a relationship with Pamela Adlon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Brilliant Second Season of 'Louie' June 6, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Louis C.K. is one of the best comedians alive, which undermines the breadth of his talent. A lot of the great stand-up comics are no longer with us, but Louis C.K. is not just one of the best alive; he's one of the best period. In 2010, FX gave Louis his own TV show and complete creative control over it. The show, a fictionalized version of his day-to-day life, was titled Louie and it's now one of television's most acclaimed shows. As a huge fan of his stand-up, I was a bit disappointed with the first season. I found it lacking something I couldn't quite put my finger on. I enjoyed the format immediately; the story interwoven with stand-up material. However, those first 13 episodes left something to be desired. Season 2 is an entirely different beast and ultimately a much better show; darker, more emotional, funnier, and each episode seems more thoroughly thought-out. Louis C.K. has found a consistency and rhythm as an actor, director, writer, producer, and editor and he seems more confident with the tone and direction of his show. This season is also much more story-focused, even with one episode centering almost entirely on masturbation.

Watching the first season, I immediately noticed that Louie shares similarities with early Woody Allen films. It's a lazy comparison in many ways; both are comedians based in New York. Their humor is quite different, but there's a strong similarity in tone. The music, the New York setting, the dealings with human nature, etc. Allen's humor and dialogue is different from Louis', but the most substantial difference is simply that Allen's comedy is more refined and sophisticated. Watching this season I couldn't escape what a great idea it would be for Allen and C.K. to work together.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most heartfelt, perfect, TV episodes ever December 10, 2011
I am not exaggerating. And I'll begin with a disclaimer -- I thought the tag took a lot away from the other-wise flawless expression of love for both New York city and a woman. The tag aside ... this was perfect. The shots of NY, and of Louis CK fascinated by it, will bring sweet pangs to anyone who once lived there. And the love-story is cruel and funny and real. The acting is superb -- Pamela Adlon is in normal flawless-form, though this venue allowed her to showcase the depth of her talent.

This was perfect. Perhaps "Chuckles Bites the Dust" perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Louie's Best Episode January 8, 2012
By chai
Verified Purchase
I'm mainly writing a review here because no one else has. After I watched this episode a day after it aired (a few months ago), I went online to see if anyone else thought it was as good as I did and there were already hundreds of reviews on a bunch of different tv message boards discussing how good it was. If you see one episode of this show, it should probably be this one, and if you've seen a few and liked any of them, this will be one of your favorites.

Louie picks his kids up from school a day before leaving for Afghanistan on a USO tour, and is forced to bring home and take care of the class's pet ducklings for the night. Upon getting to Afghanistan, he realizes one of his daughters put one of the ducklings in his backpack "to keep him safe." Already out of his element being in a war zone, he now has to take care of this little baby duckling. Accompanying him are some barely-18 NFL cheerleaders, and a country music star who opens for him by singing heartfelt songs about what it means to be an American soldier. The group of performers has to travel by helicopter from base to base doing various shows and entertaining whatever troops are there.

It's not snide or awkward; it's extremely heartfelt. While it's a merging of Louie with American Service (which isn't an easy mix), it's also somehow Louie at his best. The tone comes across just right, and the episode goes above and beyond what you would expect.
