Last night's episode of 'Louie' (Tue., 11PM ET on FX) was a weird one. There's no way to sugarcoat it. The show's been experimental in nature through the entire season, but last night it went off the comedy grid, so to speak.
Most of the episode involved Louis C.K. flashing back to his days as a kid in Catholic school, and how the battle ax of a teacher he had decided to demonstrate to Louie's class how Jesus died for their sins.
What we get is a graphic description of how Jesus was tortured and how much he suffered on the cross, thanks to a creepy doctor that should be enshrined in the Creepy TV Doctor Hall of Fame (good job by Tom Noonan there). This gives little Louie nightmares, which leads him back to the church to "free" Jesus, which the same battle ax nun decried as "vandalism," never connecting the horrific lesson she just taught with her student's actions.
