  • New perspectives in Louie

    8.5
    Interestingly, even though I'm a gay male--not attracted to fat OR skinny women--I find myself thinking, "Wow, that was really great acting. Almost as good as Parker Posey's. " But why "almost"? Wasn't that all one extended shot at the end? Wasn't that monologue highly personal and perfectly delivered by Sarah Baker? Baker's guest-star was even better than Posey's; it's just 'cause she's a fat girl that I jump to "almost. "



    I don't feel guilty about that, though. I mean I think everybody's prejudiced against everybody else, evolutionarily. It takes exposure to new perspectives to get around that prejudice. And what makes Louie so unique among TV shows is that it can forcibly bring a new perspective like that to the table in the course of a regular conversation, never feeling preachy or heavy-handed, in fact remaining entertaining and rewarding. That last sequence (one whole shot!!) epitomizes that.moreless
