IGN - This season of Louie wrought many internet "think pieces" about what he may or may not have been commenting on and whose expectations he may or may not have been swerving. All because Season 4 played out differently. And a self-awareness was assumed/attached that I feel may not have existed. As as show that'd already given us three seasons of, essentially, short films ranging from light to dark, pantomime to pathos, satire to surrealism, Louie's always felt like very translucent look into where creator/writer/director Louis C.K.'s heads been at during a particular moment in time.
