'Louie' Season 5 finale death sends the show to a dark place

Fans tuning into the "Louie" Season 5 finale Thursday (May 28) were in store for a surprise as the show's fifth season ending was much darker and more depressing than it was funny. Louie (Louis C.K.) is on the road again when the season ends, this time in Oklahoma. He meets his comedy opener Kenny (Jim Florentine), who is all about drinking before noon and scandalous women. Kenny's act is also nothing to write home about, consisting mainly of immature fart and sex jokes. Of course, since Louie is bunking with Kenny, he can only keep his mouth shut for so long and confronts Kenny about how much disdain he has for going on stage after Kenny's act.RELATED:Louis C.K.'s 'SNL' monologue on child molesters, racism divides the Twitter-verseAfter a brief emotional breakdown -- tears and all -- by Louie, the two find common ground in admitting to laughing at every fart joke they have... //

Louie Recap: Whose Kid Is This?

  Louie is on the road, and hes not happy about it.   There's a series of commercials on the air right now, where the Courtyard Marriott insists that some people get to travel for work, and some people have to travel for work, as if staying in cramped hotel rooms far away from the most comfortable places you fart is some kind of dream come true if only you pick the right hotel. Louie might agree he starts this episode on the ground floor of a sleazy motel with a way too big window, fielding harassment from friends of old residents and complaining to his child manager Doug. He was explicit about not having to stay in places like this, yet here he is, in a room with a person-sized cum stain on the floor. When you travel for work, everything needs to run like clockwork for you to even feel halfway normal, which is why its so funny when it all goes sideways for Louie.   Read More... //
