It’s tough to know how much of Louie — Louis C.K.’s too much of a drama to be a comedy, too much of a comedy to be a drama FX series — is real and how much is fake. Obviously, the scene of him ducking from a homeless person, who then gets mutilated by a dump truck, didn’t happen. But the set-up to that moment, in which a woman agrees to go on a date with him because “he could be something at some point,” might very well have occurred in his life. That blurred line between fantasy and reality that makes Louie one of the greatest, most (bizarrely) honest shows on TV right now, even if C.K. never actually went on Fox News to argue with Christians Against Masturbation.
