Last week’s Louie was a Pamela episode (Pamela Adlon). She’s a spicy tamale! Louie (Louis C.K.) does not know how to handle that. The week before, Louie had sex with a surrogate and her water broke. What is in store for him this week?

I love that every episode of Louie could be a standalone episode while also connected to others. That is real life though, right?

It opens with Louie shopping in a cooking store. It’s about to close and the owner does not want to help him, not caring about the sale. She spins a convincing tale on why he doesn’t matter because he’s old, and characteristic of Louie, he agrees.

“We’re the future. You don’t belong in it. Because we’re beyond you.” Ouch!

Louie runs into an old acquaintance Lenny (sister’s ex-boyfriend), who is NYPD (Michael Rapaport), an obnoxious, aggressive, man’s man, who invites him to a Knick’s game. This is the type of role I always think is perfect for Rapaport with his authentic New York accent. Louie, who is used to being insulted at every turn, finally stands up for himself after tons of insults, playing around with guns, and overly aggressive play-fighting. After telling Louie he doesn’t think he’s funny, Louie snaps.

Louie: “I can’t let myself be around somebody who is physically hurting m every two minutes.”

And then there’s a missing gun.

This episode had some extra action in it, and it ends in a way that surprised me. There’s also a drop of after-credit stuff. I really liked that he was not downtrodden the entire time. I know that’s his shtick, but it depresses ME sometimes.

Louie airs Thursday nights at 10:30pm on FX.
