Trivia

Louis CK provides the voice of the person on the loudspeaker of the AirTrain at the airport. See more »

Goofs

The announcement in the airport train that Louis is riding claims that he is in the "Atlanta International Airport", however, the Atlanta airport is actually "Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport" and he is clearly not there. The train does not look anywhere similar and the gates in the Atlanta airport are lettered A through E, not numbered as they are in the announcement. See more »

Louie

CK has a sitcom that every stand up comedian doesn't dream of. So many of them came close to their version of authenticity but in here, Louis CK, the creator, floods out every such famous show in one wash. Among many, many other reasons to go through this philosophical journey with CK, is to inspire from the way he films this New York City. As in the world he creates here increases the quality of television that lops off commercial branches and deepens the root through pure essence of the character, fooling you into believing that this is not a TV show. It is no crowd pleaser. And this shouldn't come as a surprise considering CK's image as an edgy comedian.

He pushes the line after every joke. You try and heal yourself and he keeps scratching the wounds harder. Another reason why I am drawn towards his comic style is that the frustration that he embodies- any stand up artist would complain and show his or her anger towards the mundane activities to connect with the audience and mock over the situation- for the laughs doesn't just wing by for the crowd and instead it is weaved out as a philosophical or ethical questions raised and discussed.

The series takes the bar a little low, optimistically, and maybe that is why people find it more sad that it actually is. But if we think about the world CK paints, the characters aren't particularly sad in contrast to the world. It is just that we are set in a dark and comical yet fair world. What's CK doing here is staging a part of life we haven't seen. It is those same streets and familiar character, it's just that we haven't seen them like this, saying things like this, expressing with a notorious behaviour like such. Where the only issue should be is how effortful it sometimes feel to warp into this world, this tedious part of the narration consumes a lot of energy from us, the viewers and Louie, a comedian; nay, a father.

The Road: Part 1

Back to basics. Depicting day to day elements that one comedian goes through. It is actually a one big stand up act, just acted out, executed, performed with not sketchy scenes but real scenarios that searches for reality and not the jokes making it as much as authentic and dramatic as possible.
