The segment in which Louie accompanies his daughter on a school field trip was based on a real-life experience of Louis C.K.'s. He really did accompany his daughter on a field trip in which the bus driver did not know how to get to the destination, illegally drove the bus on the highway, and hit an overpass. See more »
When Louie and his date leave the subway train, they stand up and walk through what would be the wall of the train. The aisle can be seen behind Louie. See more »
Over time, "Louie" delved into more dramatic territory, but in its earliest episodes it felt like a barrage of hilarious observations on life. This is Louis C.K. at his funniest, lighting up the small screen with a laugh out loud melding of realism and surrealism. Interspersed between the goofy and relatable scenarios are clips of C.K. performing his stand up, which works as an ongoing commentary throughout the show. These bits are extremely funny, and even include many of the episode's comedic highlights. The final bit in which he discusses the complexities of romance and somehow finds himself down a rabbit hole that ends up with him laughing about a nightmare he had featuring an undead dog is not only side splittingly funny, it's also delightfully bizarre and extremely creative, as is the rest of this fun and amusing pilot.
