okay, this is the second time in two days I have seen the term "supercut". Is the word "montage" no longer in use? did I miss a New Buzzwords Memo?

It's a bit frustrating on that show that sometimes he'll stand up for himself and sometimes he just lets himself get cut down like a sad sack.

The latter is just so much funnier.

A supercut is a subset of montages, meaning "done by an amateur to be posted on the internet and hopefully go viral."

So, having not watched "Louie," is it supposed to be about his real life as a schlub or is he playing a standup named Louie, who is a schlub, that gets into much funnier, soul-crushing situations?

Either way, I don't think I've ever felt so bad for someone so successful.

He plays a version of himself. He has said the first season is roughly based on certain parts of his life. Especially the first season episode 'God.' As the show has progressed, it's less about him, specifically, and more this creation of himself... if that makes sense.

The last episode with Robin Williams was brilliant.

Yep. He basically writes, directs, edits the whole thing. Complete control. So he knows if it stays too auto-biographical, he's going to run out of content. I'm sure he has an interesting life... but no one has a life interesting enough to sustain an entire show for too long. Eventually he's going to have to completely make up situations, and grow his character away from who he is.

Louis is a smart dude.

I thought I'd seen every episode, but from that it seems clear I missed at least one.

For some reason one of the things about Louie that I find most amusing is that he made his ex-wife black.

I had the same feeling last week when there was a link to a bunch of animated gifs but they called them "videographs" or some such nonsense.

Also, that he's mentioned that he doesn't care about continuity of characters and their relationships. He may have a sister in one episode, and then in another mention he's an only child.

Interview with Conan (?) he mentioned this.

Which, for the life of me, makes zero sense. It seems like he only did it so people would mention it.

The most recent episode just wasnt funny and I love Louie.I guess the point was to show that if you allow 10 year old fat kids to take a position of authority in your own house, you could end up cleaning shiat.
This is the reason I hated that John Ritter movie with the Bad Kid. I know Louie is a sad sack, but Christ.

Meh. I prefer the Larry David brand of rich curmudgeon getting himself into awkward situations and apologizing.

Love Louie's standup, just can't get into this show.

Montage is weak and french. Supercut is AWESOME.

He mentioned in an interview that he just liked the actress. I thought she did a great job with her brief scene in "Miami"--expressing a bit of frustration and annoyance when he asked if she could keep the girls a little longer (she's probably had to cover for him a lot, given the unpredictability of his schedule), confusion when he said he was staying in Miami (she delivered, "But you hate Florida," as though Louie had complained before/during/after every Miami trip for years), and then turning it all around and playfully teasing him about finding someone (suggesting that they've settled into their roles--she's not jealous; in fact, she seems a little relieved because she worries about him). Their relationship as a divorced couple felt really believable in that scene.

I have to squelch the irritation every time some douche talks about someone "rebooting the franchise" of some farking comic book or whatever.

This season needs more Pamela Adlon on screen. The episode where Louis could have had sex with her if he had gotten out of his own way was one of the best IMO. But then again I love her on Californication too.

That was the episode that started with the surreal subway trip, right? That episode was when Louie went from being really good to amazing IMO.

The Robin Williams episode was the first good one of this season, it seems like the rest are just him having an extremely long and painfully awkward conversation with different women who are invariably won over by his befuddled nature.
