IGN: Louis C.K. is back. Heavier, shaggier, and (maybe) funnier than he was during last year's run - as the comedian himself hinted at a more "laugh-centric" season to TV critics last January during a winter press tour. Only eight episodes this year, but FX is back to airing only one a week, ditching the double-down approach from Season 4. So how was the "Pot Luck" premiere?
It was pretty funny. I'm not exactly sure why Louie decided that he needed to finally attend one of his daughter's class pot luck dinners when it was filled with folks he didn't like (and who didn't like him), but it made for a funny, perverse comedy of errors that started the season off right.
