    Man this show never ceases to amaze me. What a great episode with a really good story. I really liked the way they flashed back and forth between him dealing with his daughter and the back-story of his high school drug learning experience.

    Louie C. K. surprisingly makes some of the best TV.

    That was the longest half hour I've even seen :D

    Yea, it was kind of shocking that they did an extended episode. Great episode.

    I agree that it was fantastic and well timed for me. I have a boy finishing Freshman year of HS and another finishing 6th grade this week. It's hard. First remembering what your life really was like and who you were at that age and then incorporating that into your role as a parent, especially when you have just gone 10+ years doing everything you can to protect them. Basically, parents have to do what they have to do and kids/teens have to do what they have to do. It is not always compatible.

    I was so happy as I have not been very happy with this season...this one episode make up for all that. I really liked it and so did the fat lady.

    I loved it. I really thought he was going to sit down with her at the end and tell her his story.

    This is probably the best season of Louie so far. Just the genius of bringing in someone like Eszter Balint who I thought had all but retired from acting. That storyline with her was astoundingly good TV.

    I must be in the minority but I didn't really enjoy this episode and it seemed very long. Then again, I don't have a tween.

    This was the best ABC After-School Special I've seen.

    we thought it dragged and the ending was weak. All he could say was "I'm here for you" ? Though that was probably the point.

    Some very strange editing going on as well.

    It was a Very Special Louie.

    I thought it was tedious.

    Louie has told that story about him stealing the scales and trading them for pot in his stand up act before.

    I know there's not supposed to be continuity between episodes of Louie, but it was weird to see F. Murray Abraham playing Louie's dad when he had played Louie's uncle in a previous episode.

    Saw an interview with Louis CK he said the addition of Skipp Suduth was last minute the teacher was going to be played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman and then he died. He changed the name of the teacher to honor PSH.

    Could have sworn that in the first part of the episode, the teacher was called Mr. Miner, and in the second half he was called Mr. Hoffman. Is that what CK is talking about?

    At the end of the show a title card dedicated the show to him.

    I loved this episode. This season has really impressed me.

    I liked this a lot as well. This has been a different season for Louie. I don't know how to explain him. I just like him.

    Even though this episode was almost completely devoid of humor, I enjoyed it. Yes, it was kind of long, but I was never bored, and there was some great acting. The boy who played young Louie was superb. So was Skipp Sudduth as the science teacher. I also thoroughly enjoyed the performances by Jeremy Renner and Amy Landecker.

    Overall, this season has had much less humor than previous seasons. The show has evolved into a canvas where C.K. expresses his innermost thoughts, fears, etc ... There truly isn't anything else like it on television. C.K basically has free reign to do what ever he wants without network interference, and the result is some highly entertaining, and often brilliant TV.
