‘Louie: Moving’ Review

After last week’s slightly disappointing episode, Louie came back with a classic this week. The episode, entitled Moving, focused on Louie trying to find a new apartment for him and his girls. This is because he is still living in the same apartment that he lived in prior to his divorce.

Watching Louie deal with realtors and checking out apartments was hilarious. Every place he looked made him more uncomfortable than the last in a way that only downtown New York City real estate could.

Eventually Louie find his dream apartment, one that will “fix everything”. We get a classic moment where Louie imagines that he and the real estate agent spin around each other and dance at the idea that this apartment would fix everything in his life. It is an incredibly relatable moment and shows just how great of an understanding of the human mind Louis C.K. has.

Moving is the best episode of the season so far because it is hilarious and grounded in reality in a way that only Louie can pull off. (9.5/10)

  1. Great show! Good review. What do you think was so much better than the episode before it? On another note, getting little injections of his standup (which relates to plot of the episode) is always hilarious. He’s a genius.

  2. I agree this episode was hilarious! But the part that really had me laughing was when he was sitting in the diner with his friend or even when his account was going over his fiances! Both classic scenes to the series.

  3. I just saw this episode today completely at random, although I haven’t seen any other of the series. It really drew me into liking the show on most counts, although I can’t say I’m at all fond of a certain character’s crude your-mama humor in the early diner scene (however, I’ll allow that this kind of humor did not persist throughout the episode and if it is relatable realism Louis is after, then sure there are people like this and even people who like this humor). Also, it was rather sad overall, and I’m not sure I would ever rejoice in an opportunity to watch an episode. But I trust it to carry entertainment value with a fair mix of comedy and drama all the same.
