Watch Louie


"Louie" is a show that follows the somewhat everyday life of comic Louie CK. This show is the second show that Louie has starred in about himself. The first was a fictional version of himself called "Life With Louie." This latest project of Louie's is one that follows Louie as himself, a fairly well-known comedian who is divorced with two daughters and lives in New York City. Each episode consists of two small sub-episodes and each of those is bookended with a few minutes from his stand up performances. These generally deal with the topic of each episode.

The topics of each show come from things he has actually experienced as well as things his friends have experienced. Though some are a bit goofy and even a bit pointless there are also episodes, especially later in the series that focus on more serious topics such as going to the middle east to entertain the US troops in a USO lineup.

"Louie," like the comedian himself, can be very brash at times and it does include strong language as well as adult subjects. For this reason there are many who choose not to watch the show. Most fans would argue that Louie CK simply says things the way that we all say them in our heads, he just says these things out loud. There are also many times that we see the values he tries to teach his daughters. When he has scenes that involve his kids he is trying to instill core values in them such as not resorting to violence when faced with a bully, treating every person with respect and that their education is one of the most important things they will have. He also makes a good showing of being a single father who makes it a point to spend more than half of his time with his kids.

The genre of this show is comedy, but like many shows it includes a wide variety of subgenres and themes such as reality and drama with bit of inappropriate material mixed in for good measure.
