Although the show's famous production deal has remained in place during its run on FX (Louis CK gets a very small amount of funding for each episode in exchange for FX not interfering with his production process or having any idea what an episode is like until he finishes and sends the final product to them), it has seen two fairly major changes during the 3 seasons and counting so far. One change is that the amount per episode has been increased somewhat, from $200,000 in Season 1 to a range of $250-300,000 for Seasons 2 and 3. The other is that FX has been willing to outlay additional money for location shooting: episodes in Seasons 2 and 3 were thus filmed in Texas and California (standing in for Afghanistan), Miami, Boston, and the People's Republic of China.

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.
