Louie 503-01

Louie
Season 5 Episode 3 “Cop Story”
Directed by Louis C.K.
Teleplay by Louis C.K.
Created by Louis C.K.
Starring Louis C.K., Pamela Adlon, Hadley Delany, Ursula Parker, Susan Kelechi Watson, Michael Rapaport
FX
Air Date: Thursday, April 23rd, 2015, 10:30pm

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 season 5 premiered last week and our favorite awkward comic, Louis C.K., gave us a triple dose of embarrassing scenarios. Before we get to the review of Louie 5.2 “A La Carte,” let’s give a tiny recap of the premiere.

This was undoubtedly the most humiliating episode for our Louie (Louis C.K.) in a long time. He just did the wrong thing at every turn. He decides to go to a potluck for school parents. He ends up at the wrong one after impressively banging out some good-looking fried chicken. After he finally figures this out, he’s forced to go to the local chicken joint to fake out a replacement. He probably should have stayed at the other one because everybody was not nice. I mean, he said lots of weird things, but still.

Happy Gilmore's Adam Sandler and Bob Barker Reunite For Night of Too Many Stars

Adam Sandler‘s altercation with legendary TV game show host Bob Barker was probably the most memorable part of the 1996 comedy film Happy Gilmore, which saw Sandler’s title character as a hot-headed hockey player who enters a pro golf tour to win money to save his grandmother’s home. At one of the tournaments, Happy is paired with Bob Barker and an hilarious rumble ensues.

Now, the former partners have put aside their nearly two-decade-long grudge to come together for Night of Too Many Stars, the Comedy Central live telethon to benefit autism. Check out the video of their reunion here below and stay through til the end, because this is come real good stuff!

Top 30 Movies of 2013

Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, stated that “experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.” This quote lingered within my thoughts for the majority of the 2013 movie year because there is a remarkable number of films that confirm Huxley’s statement with shocking clarity. During 2013 the majority of characters in cinema experienced a relentless assault of either irrepressible physical violence or emotional turmoil, resulting in each character clinging to their lives, praying that they won’t become defeated. Characters had to either sink or swim. No film provided for them a middle ground that would grant them an easy way out or provide a buoy for them. Characters had to act, and act fast.

In Gravity, becoming disconnected from her partner in the infinite void of space, Dr. Stone had to gain composure quickly or endure an onslaught of debris and isolation. In The Place Beyond the Pines, a cop had to rely on his survival instincts and the ramifications of his decision reverberated throughout generations. In Blue is the Warmest Color, a confused teenage woman, utterly love-sick, discovers the throes and pangs of first love and is left even more confused after the indelible experience. In Dallas Buyers Club, an AIDs victim with a guaranteed death-sentence uses his situation to give hope to thousands of other AIDs victims. And in The Counselor, a man’s experience overwhelms him and he is soon exposed to the most unsavory circumstances that are beyond his control and the most heinous individuals.

Without further hesitance, the best 2013 had to offer.
