While the show famously uses a fixed-budget model (where Louis CK makes the series for a relative pittance in exchange for FX granting him complete creative freedom), there have been several occasions where a script was set in a location other than New York City and CK reached out to the network for additional funds. Amongst these locations are Miami, Boston, the People's Republic of China, and a combination of Texas and California (the last set was standing in for Afghanistan). To date, FX has listened to all of CK's requests and immediately provided all of the extra funding he requested. See more »

Louie has turned into something really special. The show has dealt with Louie's loneliness before, and there can be arguments made that he's going over the same material. But is everything in real life new? Even though we ponder over problems we have, does that mean they go away? Louie isn't the same comedy it was in its first season, and it's been clear for some time now. New Years Eve is a fantastic finish to a fantastic season, but that doesn't mean the season was perfect. It hit a few rough spots around the middle, and I personally wasn't a huge fan of the three-parter Late Show, although I loved it infusing Lynchian style and humor. Saying that however, once again looking at the overall season, it's yet again a carefully crafted, meticulous chapter in this amazing series. It's going to be hard to wait more than a year for it to come back, because I just started watching it two months ago on Netflix and finally have concluded it for now.
