1765 - Louie: season three
This season told much more of a straight story than the previous. It would appear that Louis decided to tell a more fluid story of love and loss, aspiration, and reality. SPOILERS AHEAD. From meeting the girl of his dreams to watching her slip away in a terrible fashion, from being groomed for one of the top spots in his profession, to suffering in a moat of depression, this season was about Louie having to get out of his lonely funk and do something about himself. And he's succeeded admirably.
There is absolutely no other series like this on television and it's the kind of thing that would be just impossible to replicate. It's unique because it allows one of the greatest entertainers of our generation to just go out there and tell the story he wants to tell. Here's hoping they let him tell lots more.
