Trivia

The show received two Emmy nominations in 2016, notably one in a Drama Series-category (Guest Actress in a Drama Series for Laurie Metcalf) and one in a Comedy Series-category (Multicamera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series for Gina Sansom). Series creator Louis C.K. considers the show as a Drama Series and therefore entered the Emmy consideration process as such. However, in 2016, there simply didn't exist a category for "Multicamera Picture Editing for a Drama Series" (also because there are rarely multi-camera drama series), therefore the show had to enter the corresponding category in the Comedy Series branch.

Louie fans will love this; others – might as well
10 February 2016 | by shakurazzSee all my reviews

After 2 episodes, this, for me, a Louie series fan, is great. Those who love the awkward, uncomfortable comedy, will find it abundant here. I hadn't expected anything specific before watching this because this is Louis C.K., he does it his own unique way. I think Louis himself sums it up perfectly:

"Warning: this show is not a "comedy". I dunno what it is. It can be funny. And also not. Both. I believe that "funny" works best in its natural habitat. Right in the jungle along with "awful", "sad", "confusing" and "nothing". I just think it's fair this one time to warn you since you have every right to expect a comedy from a comedian."

So, if you've enjoyed anything that Louis had done, definitely check this out, if not – I sincerely recommend you to. What you can expect is great dialogue, untouched by political correctness. This is very refreshing.
