Louie: "Pilot" Review

Advance Review: It's round two for Louis C.K. and the sitcom game. Following a short-lived series on HBO called Lucky Louie, C.K. returned to stand-up and released two wildly popular comedy specials, Shameless and Chewed Up. After garnering a following from those specials and a small pool of notable acting gigs, C.K. made a full-on comeback to cable networking for his new FX original series, Louie. And I think it's safe to say that this round's a knockout.

Louie follows the quasi-fictional life of the real Louis C.K. as he struggles with a recent divorce and raising two daughters in New York City. While the show is loosely based on C.K.'s actual life, the show is more a hybrid between thematically relevant segments of stand-up comedy in relation to fictional vignettes that C.K. writes, directs, edits and stars in.
