Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow.
First off, let me acknowledge that yes, we are beginning weekly Louie episode reviews! I recently burnt through the first two seasons of this show and confirmed for myself what I’d already heard – this is one of the smartest and best series on TV. I lost it laughing when a homeless man got decapitated and I bawled like a baby when Louie gave a little girl a duckling. This show is truly something special.
I just want to get my overall adoration of this show out of the way, since I actually found the Season 3 premiere… good. It had several great Louie moments, but I didn’t think it quite added up to how wonderful the show usually is.
