"Louie Season 4"


  

          

Caught the 2nd episode, didn't know there was two today.

Louie bombing was hilarious, him not knowing what to do with the chick was great, the disbelief at them suing him was awesome, But him knocking out the shit cuz he was ticklish was amazing!

ŅIf a fat guy falls in the woods and there is no one around to see it, do the trees laugh?

Him in the sex shop and his back going out was too funny, it looked like he was fronting out of embarrassment. It was really cool showing the little old lady helping him in a cab, I appreciate it was trying to show that New York isn't the stereotype people think it is, that there a good people there.

Louie's daughters are gold, those two girls want to run his life.

Two moments that were great. His daughter doing her homework assignment at the table, and Louie says "Dear AIDS, Please cut it out." The other was the conversation at the card table about masturbating. I had tears from laughing so hard at that scene.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'm almost surprised this show is even popular because of how absurdist and surreal it can get. It's like, he's just trying to make 30-minute art films disguised as episodes of a comedy show. A lot of times it doesn't even try to be explicitly funny.

Like, that first episode was kind of on some After Hours/Eyes Wide Shut shit where it has dream-like rhythms but it never explicitly calls itself a dream. (The second one was like this too, but to a lesser extent.) All of the seemingly disjointed scenes come together in the end though, sort of. It was actually a pretty smart episode the more I think about it...

The second episode was great, too. I love how Seinfeld was willing to go on the show and play such a douche bag version of himself...

I'm reminded of Louie with his accountant last year, explaining why he can't afford a million-dollar house.

I didn't like the first episode as much, but Charles Grodin's doctor was one of the best things I've seen in a long time.

i loved his nonchalance at completely dismissing louie's back pain.

his interactions with this daughters are always excellent.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

And the scene when he got back to his daughter on the subway platform... my heart was racing even though I knew they were gonna get back to her... he was way calmer than I would have been.

Also, was that the first time they had an uncensored "fuck" on there? (the fat girl episode)

In response to Reply # 20


  

          

I had to rewind the DVR to make sure I heard it correctly.

I'm curious if he got a say in which episode they allowed the uncensored fuck.

It says it in the next eps after when the daughter leaves the train.

It would seems to me like the more "appropriate" would be in the second ep, but the use in the first eps was more impactful.

ŅIf a fat guy falls in the woods and there is no one around to see it, do the trees laugh?

Give me a break Louie, a comedy show like this should challenge some of the PC liberal bullshit that's spouted all throughout the media nowadays, not promote it.

I have such a love-hate relationship with this show. Louis CK is funny and it's a very well made show, but some of the themes and character arcs are so annoying.

The Elevator episode was better, maybe Louie will develop a relationship with the niece? That'd be a good character arc

don't get me wrong, it was a well written and acted scene. it eloquently argued how superficial our culture is and how certain people are looked down upon.

but....that's the way the world is is. and i would have stood up and applauded if Louie retorted by saying, "well if you hate being fat so much stop doing bang bangs and run on a treadmill 30min a day. truth is you like eating and being lazy more than the sacrifices it takes to be happy and healthy". granted the Louie character would never say that because he has no backbone, but I could see Louis CK doing a whole stand up bit criticizing fat people for bitching about being fat.

it just seemed way too pandering to the whole fat acceptance and rationalization of being unhealthy that's going on nowadays.

This is the popular view; shoot thereís billions flying in made off just to help you do just that (or short cut your way into it). Not like Louie needs to reiterate it.

The problem is

1)For some people itís not as easy as they eat too much and donít exercise enough
2)Since itís a vice that affects physical appearance, we have no problem being extra judgy.

I drink a lot, eat badly (even though I am of a good weight), kind of wasting my potential in a few different ways, and tend to be lazy left to my own devices. I canít really be mad at someone whoís got their life together but likes to eat a lotÖpick your poison and your flaws. Unfortunately itís a little to socially acceptable(disproportionately so) to publically shame someone if they are fucking up in the weight category

When Louie tried to compliment her as not fat Imho was the crux of the skit, itís such a shameful thing that he knew to publically acknowledge it might hurt her feelings, despite itís a preposterous thing to say/ignore.

He could've plugged some health consciousness in there. America is the fattest nation in the world with growing obesity and diabetes rates. Instead of only providing the opportunity to defend obesity and urge America to stop shaming them, he could have ALSO presented the fact that healthy living could lead to less obesity and more happiness or acceptance.

1. Then those people shouldn't be complaining about how much it sucks to be fat. Take personal responsibility instead of creating this victim mentality.
2. It's a cold world, especially in the dating market. People are judged for their height, weight, ethnicity, etc. all the time. We only have power to change one of those attributes.

Yeah but he said that because he knew that if he said, "yeah you really are fat" she might have a horrible reaction because people are really sensitive about it. That was a trick question. Not to mention the hypocrisy of her criticizing his appearance and then trying to tell him he has no right to criticize hers.

I know it's a sensitive topic and I've obviously struck a nerve (as you can see below) by not giving a PC answer about it. I don't believe fat people should be shamed for their weight, at the end of the day people have their own lives to live and it's their business. Yet I think people should be encouraged to make healthy decisions and I can't pity somebody complaining about the dating market instead of trying to change themselves for the better.

I didn't hear a fat acceptance agenda being promoted.

I thought part of what was worthwhile about the conversation between Louie and the woman was there was a discussion happening about appetites: what people consume, desire, and why. I thought the woman was pretty up front about where she was coming from. Nor was she asking for pity or acceptance. I think the woman saw that Louie had the ability to see people for who they are...complicated, not only "one thing."

We live in a society that, in part, manufactures and sells "food" that's addictive, unwholesome, and unhealthy. People can "consume" lots of "food" and still be starved, want more. What do people want? To be loved. Happy. Needed. To care for others. Friendship. Relationship. The woman was really honest about that. To that end, I thought the implied (?) question asked about Louie's appetites concerning women, connection, and dating was great.

In my opinion, many men are served a constant "diet" of sexual fare that can:

--create a dull, desensitized, sexual "palate"
--strip them of the ability to experience a wide range of satisfying sexual experiences
--objectify women as "things" which serve as an extension of a man's power, prowess, success

The end result? "Starved" men who crave unhealthy garbage, who find it difficult to recognize, *want*, value, or feel the gift of real, fully satisfying, human intimacy and connection.

Attraction, of course, is subjective and can be a mystery. But some of the "fare" fed to the male viewing public (which is presented as some sort of objective standard) is boring and predictable, yet served as the best exciting must-have, desirable, thing ever. Of course, that encourages unrealistic expectations and desires that men continually indulge in that make them *unhappy*. Louie almost stood there and didn't see a really good thing.

Eventually, men can choose to grow up, heal, and face real life. Or not. If they don't want to, there's all kinds of things out there which can be abused, which gladly oblige and rob men blind of their money, time, and dignity. After a while, I imagine exploitation and meeting broken "hot" women who are navigating the same inhumane "world" is a bummer. Self-induced heartbreak isn't fun, and so I think some men actually realistically re-asses what they want and why.

I saw Louie doing that in the episode.

that woman really wasn't speaking for all fat girls

She was speaking *Louis C.K.'s* words on how he feels when he disses fat girls

She essentially is berating Louie/Louis for being a dick to fat women, when all he does is go on "Bang Bang" missions and have the nerve to be selective when it comes to rejecting women who are clearly into him (and he clearly has a rapport with), not to mention back out of opportunities to start losing weight in order to be with the women he thinks he really deserves

She is Louis C.K. calling both the character Louie and Louis C.K. himself a fucking hypocrite

At least that's how I read it

Louis is able to work through his shit and have FX foot the bill, and also have us watch it, which is great, and only the dumbest and hackiest of artists would turn down the opportunity to do so

32. "Thoroughly enjoyed both episodes"
In response to Reply # 0


          

- The "fat" actress had some impeccable comedic timing and was just great to watch. I'd put her in my show.

- I enjoyed her little speech too, I enjoyed every aspect of it. As a society we treat overweight folks like they're next to nothing. I enjoyed it.

- That dream shit and the daughter just jumping off the train man, I was just imagining Max doing that and was tense the entire time. I hate that feeling man.

- Watching those two dudes do a Bang-Bang made my tummy hurt. My wife and I were both sort of on the couch speechless.

- I'm wondering where this elevator thing will go. I believe in Louie enough to think it'll be great whatever it is.

44. "I kind of hated that Fat Girl Speech."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I wanted to like it because it's something I never heard before, but I couldn't get over the fact that, well Louie isn't a fat woman.

I've got a real authenticity problem because I wonder what is the basis for him speaking for a fat woman?

I'd be totally fine if it turns out that he has heard that speech from a girl, or if a girl wrote that portion of it, but if that's not the case then to me it's Kathryn Stockett doing first person narrative's of black maids in the Help.

Do I think writers can only write from their personal point of view? Of course not, but I do generally hate when one group attempts to speak for another group that is perfectly capable on speaking for themselves.

In response to Reply # 48


          

And honest to some people then should we really be worried about where it came from?

Then on the other hand I don't want someone who hasn't lived my experiences speaking for them in a way that others would perceive as real.

So i'm stuck, because I was moved by the scene, genuinely moved. Like I had to go back and look at the way i've dealt with certain situations in life. So in that respect it was really effective and impactful writing.

I am not worried where it came from but moreso worried if it is authentic. If fat chicks see that and say thank you for expressing what I have always felt, it's cool.

>

Yeah I think some folks above said it was soo real and I wonder why they say that since they aren't fat women.

Ever see the movie Life is Hot in Cracktown? If you haven't don't bother, it's terrible. It's what a person who isn't from the hood imagines what the hood is like. The worst thing about it is in the reviews people talking about how REAL it was.

It's a pet peeve of mine. Underminded the movie Don Jon for me.
I've been on this issue since the movie COLORS.

Also, the wonderful actress who played the part said the speech was written by Louis himself, and changed very little from when she read for the part to when they shot it

Also, he got the sole writing credit for the episode. Not sure why there's talk about "writers" or "Pamela Adlon" helping out.

that's all i really saw it as

all he did was write a character who expressed an opinion. yeah, he could be saying some things here, and addressing some of his own hypocrisy, but i don't think he wrote her rant as a means to become HuffPo's champion for fat women.

Ok this is in the Daily Beast. A plus size's model commentary on the episode.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/14/plus-size-model-jennifer-maitland-get-over-the-word-fat.html

I think her remarks are waay more off key than Louie's because she tries to make the argument that being fat isn't such a big detriment to dating but she is kind of full of shit because she is actually a very attractive woman. She is a model for gods sakes. Of course she can say being fat isn't a big deal.

In response to Reply # 44


  

          

there were a few beats where it could have ended but then it kicked back in and kept going and going and going.

the actress was really natural, believable and likable throughout the episode, but i that overly long soliloquy just got less and less believable the longer it went on.

that speech frankly ruined an otherwise great episode

But she was the only woman outside of his ex that he spent any real time with. The only woman whom he would have intimate conversations with. So he thought he really felt all this stuff for her. She treated him like a trusty dog that would always be there. She didn't really respect him in any way.

She felt terrible about the way things went for her when she moved away, so she was like Louie will make me feel better at least he'll always want me.

Then all of sudden he saw her for how she truly saw him and was absolutely disgusted and blown away by how she treated him all at the same time.

I think some of that also played into his full on trip when he found out ole girl was going back to Hungary.

she was always busting his balls, but he seemed to find it endearing in a way. and she was at least straight up with him about not having a shot before. (well, besides the bath thing),

but her entitled, almost bullyish reaction to him not doing backflips over her basically telling him "you're my last resort. lucky you!" had me pretty much re-evaluate everything with her.

buying her jewelry and all kinds of dumb shit, while she would "awww how sweet" thank me and let me be her loyal chump while she started seeing some another dude and would call me and ask me advice about him...

months of that doormat shit until i met my first real girlfriend, and we stopped talking. forward another year i'm at a party, with a new girl i was seeing who was cute as fuck, and she happens to be there, and she had gained about 30 pounds. it couldn't have been more perfect.

she calls me a day later we talk for like a while and she starts going on about how she's always liked me, and i just cut her off, in the middle like "Yeah, i gotta go. nice talking to you"

*does happy dance*

its on the short list of victories in my life

He should go ahead and release it as an independent film.

BTW, that black actress is sooo good but it still is a bit distracting. Especially when they did a flash back to the younger white version of herself.

Also the dude who played younger Louie nailed his voice perfectly.

or just an alternate bizarro version of them. I will admit it was a little distracting that the alternate actress was a white woman but
Louie CK himself looks at his casting choices by the quality of the actress and not the color of the actress which is why he cast a Black woman as his ex wife to begin with, with no explanation to why his children were white and not biracial. I guess if it were meant to actually be a younger version then we would have to suspend our disbelief for that as well.

this sounds good and all, but there's no narrative rationale for it. it's weird for the sake of being weird. i ride hard for louie...i think he has almost pitch-perfect creative instincts, but the black wife thing is a major misstep.

It makes complete and total sense. If you watch the show from beginning to end you'll see LOTS of stuff happens that MUST be completely divorced from reality.

The oral sex scene w/Melissa Leo scene IMMEDIATELY comes to mind.

Louie is screaming out the window to NY below and the therapist and ex-wife just kept talking like nothing was wrong.

If the show is suppose to be realism, a small scene like that would disrupt things. But Louie is sur-reality. Things like Louie screaming out a window in the middle of a therapy session happen all the time.

I love that you called him an untrustworthy narrator. Perfect description. The world we see is one constructed by his mental "madness" and emotional disorder.

Which is why the show is so damn human

However Louie's surreal moments can take you out of the realism of a scene without adding a lot of value. For example, him going to the window to scream during the therapy session really wasn't didn't add much value a scene that worked well because of the realism.

I get it. Louie found a great wife actress and great kid actresses and didn't feel bound by convention to casts who he wanted. That wasn't an issue the first couple of seasons when he constantly rotated actors and the stories were soo disjointed.

Now that he is telling a continuous story arc though he has painted himself into a bit of a corner that causes for a distraction.

I say it wasn't a misstep because at this point I wouldn't want any other actresses playing his wife or kids.

mostly because it was rather mundane

Louie's ex (Susan Kelechi Watson) is fucking gorgeous

And even without really knowing what she said, the last scene between Amia and Louie was sad and wonderful

87. "My take was the sex was good but..."
In response to Reply # 77


  

          

I think the problem is that she doesn't know his reasoning. He knows his reasoning, but they haven't communicated about anything important really. His ex-wife and the old bird were in his ear making him feel bad for not making that move. He definitely was the one who initiated the sex, so she's probably confused or has a misunderstanding of what it meant to him.

She might think that he just wanted to hit that before she left as a consolation prize. She might think that it wasn't going to be that hard to say goodbye but now it will be much more painful to leave, and she is mad that she now has to consider uprooting herself and her son and changing her life completely.

I think she was definitely frustrated by the fact that they couldn't communicate at all about any of it, and was feeling like maybe it wasn't worth all the trouble.

Either way, she's definitely regretting the decision and is probably mad at Louie for pressuring her.

They desperately need a translator who isn't her aunt.

I love how this show jumps from the surreal to the super-real. Such a good show and this season has some of the best episodes of the series.

yep....i thought that she she was reluctant to take that physical step because it complicates things, but louie kept pouring on the passion and she responded...then in the next morning where a typical couple might discuss SOMETHING, they can't and therefore whatever the night meant to either of them is lost...and it makes it harder for her to leave the country if her feelings for louie have elevated because of the intimacy...i didn't get the impression he was a bad lay at all


...on a related note, she looked absolutely beautiful laying in that bed watching him sleep

92. "Thats a very good point..."
In response to Reply # 87


  

          

And it makes it tragic in that way that they can't effectively communicate their feelings for one another. We really don't know how she felt about Louie before that night.

However, I wonder if the thought occurred to Louie to go to the bookstore and buy a translation book or hell just use the translator on his phone or his iPad. It will be long and cumbersome but it would be a effective way to communicate with her somewhat.

Hell universal sign language, point to his eyes, point to his heart, and then point to her. I love you.

I just want Louie to win! LOL!

This is the flip side of the 'fat girl' speech. She doesn't want to believe that she should be with a guy like Louie.

That being said .... It was rapey, and uncomfortable and NOT in the way I think he was going for.

Do you think they were trying to make us sympathize with Louie? Because I came away from that thinking he (the character) was 100% in the wrong. I thought his little "celebration" afterwards was meant to seem pathetic and childish.

but you know, given this site and who's posting in here, folk *ARE* picking sides....

when, it was pretty clear to me, neither ONE of them was a) thinking in their right mind and b) were, no are, assholes, and were acting like damn fools...

In response to Reply # 113


  

          

100% weird but once they started talking it put it in context. i mean it was still weird as shit but i didn't walk away feeling like i needed to shower after it. they kind of saved the scene with the dialogue and the way they ended it.

i don't see it.
to me she's just childish and can't decide if she likes him like that or not. that usually means that you don't like the person that way.
and louie is very frustrated and desperate to have a romantic relationship. he wasn't thinking "i want to have sex" in that scene. it was more like "come on, lets do this already! let's have a relationship!". and yes it came off rapey but that wasn't the louie character, it was louis the writer.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Even though I know Louis smokes pot in his real life, this was one of the better "anti-drug" (not that that's what he was really trying to do) episodes of a TV show I have ever seen.

Dae021 is right, Louie is pretty much impossible to categorize at this point, and that's why it works.

135. "wish he would have filmed it like the bit then"
In response to Reply # 134


  

          

"Just got so high for the whole year, I was stealing scales and smoking the dope. It was awesome. It might to date be the best part of my life. It was the greatest, most satisfying time of my life."

I guess you can't have a TV show with a 14 year old kid smoking weed and having the time of his life, but this two part episode felt like a long D.A.R.E. video that gets shown in middle school classes. Everything from the cool teacher who cares, the lowlife drugdealer that turns violent, the friend from the broken family who is a bad influence, and the mom who can't even recognize her own son were just a bit too cliche for me.

I wished they transitioned more back to the situation with his daughter. My favorite part of the episodes was the closing scene between Louie & Lily.

Yeah man it was just an updated after-school special to me. It would have been more interesting to tell the more morally ambiguous story he tells in the stand-up.

It would have made more sense if there were no repercussions in his teen life and it only finally hits him when dealing with his own kid.

139. "Two thoughts on that:"
In response to Reply # 137


  

          

1. Louie's mom never really knew exactly what he was doing. She figured it was drugs but nothing in the episode really lets us know that she knows the specifics of what Louie had done. She was reacting to her worst nightmare of the situation rather than the actual situation.

2. I think that reaction is there to underscore Louie's reaction to his daughter. Louie remembered what it felt like to yelled at and practically disowned by his mother...which is probably why he copped out of going in on Lily.

I really wish he would've just hit her with his situation and let her absorb all of that instead of saying nothing at all. Saying nothing wasn't really a great idea but I understand why chose that route and it does fall in line with his character in general.

143. "Saying nothing at all..."
In response to Reply # 139


          

Saying nothing at all is succumbing to the fact that everyone must make their own decisions. He can tell her warnings about drug use, or say he's disappointed, or tell his own story (bad idea, teenager will use against you and to justify own risks), but in life you must take risks and make mistakes to learn, especially in adolescence where you are figuring out just who you are outside of your family unit.

Basically the main thing the parent can control is their own relationship with the children, and let them learn how to deal with the world from that example. just being there for his daughter, her knowing he loves her no matter what, might be enough to make her more confident in her own decisions next time, or at least remove much of the rebellious nature of getting high.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I think I read they shoot with Red Cameras but one thing I always notice about the show is that all the scenes seem overlit to me.

Anyway the only other time I ever noticed lighting is in the Movie Mystery Team which is the worst lighting I've ever seen in a movie.

Exactly!

Pamela is basically the viewers/fans/us jumping inside the tv screen and having fun on the show. I think the whole show is a slightly alternate reality.

It kind of cut downs a lot of the complaints I have had about the show. In sum, it's suppose to be messy and imperfect. That's a feature not a bug.

and I'm just catching up now on Netflix. Holy fuck what a great show. I think I was hesitant because I saw a stand up of his sometime ago and wasn't the biggest fan. Curious if I'll be able to watch all the seasons that are available on Netflix this whole weekend.
