TVOM: "I’ve always been fascinated by Louie‘s cognizant imperfections; that is, both the show and the star itself, both of which glean much of their success exploring the ugly underbelly of self-consciousness. Much of Louie and C.K.’s stand up address the darkest corners of nihilism, where one is willing to accept the deep flaws of themselves and others because, in the end, none of it really matters. There aren’t many shows on TV with this particular worldview – but there’s even less television shows willing to admit their worldview and philosophy isn’t an answer to anything, refusing to adhere to the “rules” of defining what is right and wrong. In Louie C.K.’s world, everything is just random, vivid, and pretty screwed up in general – and audaciously, he dares us to laugh at it all. Laugh at our own shortcomings, giggle at the failures of ourselves and others, and lose ourselves in the cyclical journey of self-discovery and realization that often consumes the middle third of most adult lives."
