has said that continuity is not hugely important to his series, with each episode having its own "end goal". Louie's immediate family has been a major example of this. In Season 1, two different versions of his mother appeared (one a miserable, selfish old woman, and the other a kind and likable middle-aged woman) and he had a loser brother named Robert; in Season 2, his mom doesn't appear, and Robert no longer exists, having been replaced by two sisters (one a likable, tough, pregnant woman, the other a mentally disturbed mother of a sullen teenager) and Season 3's finale introduced another sister portrayed by Amy Poehler
. Different actresses have also been used to play his daughters without any explanation. See more
