Storyline

When Louis is asked by Jerry Seinfeld to introduce him for a charity event in the Hamptons, he is awkwardly bad and amuses no one except a model. That model turns out to be the only one liking his performance and asks him to spend a day together, which he accepts. And while Louis is on that sort of date, something very bad happens.

Like many of "Louie"'s finest episodes, "Model" totally subverts expectations in each and every scene, and yet, by the end of it, everything seems to connect and has been tied up in a tragicomic bow. There's a few episodes in which the unrealistic concept of Louis C.K. having sexual relations with a much more attractive woman occurs at some point, and while he usually is able to turn it into some sort of unique self reflection or blackly humorous punchline, in this episode he goes into even further depths of subversion. Fictional/creative writing takes you into all sorts of directions, and so do personal experiences, and "Louie" is a show that is able to utilize both of these elements of creation with both comedy and drama, and there may be no better episode to prove this than "Model". It's just...so, so, so good and engaging and even gripping. There are hilarious, awkward laughs along the way, but it eventually becomes very distressing, and finally ends with a beautiful combination of these strong yet relatable emotions. It's a gust of ferociously funny and "intellectual" (not in a remotely pretentious way or anything) creative wind, and a breath of fresh air for anyone who resents modern media for its unoriginality and predictable tendencies.
