Louie: Third time’s the charm

No Comments 08 August 2011

If you took a cursory glance at the schedules you’d be forgiven for thinking that there isn’t a great deal to celebrate about modern TV. Reality shows rule the airwaves while creativity is stifled via over zealous executives and truly innovative shows rarely get past the pilot episode stage.

It’s certainly almost unheard of for TV executives to hand over the kind of creative power that Louis CK holds over his show Louie. When we say “his show”, we don’t just mean it’s a Louis CK vehicle. The guy stars in it, sure, but he also writes, directs, edits and produces the thing — to frequently stunning effect. If you’ve not yet sampled its charms, give it a go; you genuinely haven’t seen anything like it before.

A lot of credit has to go to FX for commissioning such an unconventional comedy show — and sticking by it. For the channel has just announced that the superior sitcom, currently in the middle of its second season, will return for a third run next year. So the next time you flick around the channels before sighing and shutting down your set, be thankful that there are still some far-flung corners of TV land where talented people get the opportunity to do their thing.
