Did You Know?


Although Louis C.K. normally doesn't go over details of episodes with FX before filming them, he made an exception for this episode due to its large scope and subject matter. The network rejected an initial projection of a $750,000 budget increase for it, and eventually OK'd an extra $250,000 for filming, as well as location work in Texas and California (with both locations standing in for Afghanistan).

Felt very uncomfortable.
1 March 2017 | by antoine-leblanc-meSee all my reviews

I don't know if it's because I am not American, but this episode of the show made me feel really uncomfortable. I could not help but to see this as some army/pro US propaganda you can see in every American that usually make them so bad. Something I did not expect from an otherwise very good TV show.
