Trivia

Mary Louise Szekely, Louis C.K.'s daughter, is credited with coming up with the story idea. According to C.K., he and his daughters really did have to take ducklings home from school. In real life, C.K. had just returned from Afghanistan. His daughter said he should do an episode about taking a duckling to Afghanistan. See more »

Duckling of peace
26 August 2011 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

This episode really inspired me to write a review. Based on Louie's USO experience it has everything it should have: parts of the field performances, emotions such as scare and awkwardness, bird's-eye view of Afghanistan and of course the US troops and the scenes from that military life. Oh, and a fluffy yellow duckling, for the love of Jesus! All together it creates that special spirit, if you know what I mean. The spirit so not typical for the TV comedy show. But either way it's 'Louie' which is much deeper. So Louis C.K. once again made us laugh and made us think. This is what we as the fans of this show appreciate so much. More than that it was 100% cute, sentimental and adorable which is new for the cynic Louie, but is OK if is rare:) So I believe this episode has to be highly appreciated. Thanks to Louis and the crew and FX in whole.
