Louis C.K. has one of the best deals of any showrunner in television, getting the bare minimum of creative involvement from FX in exchange for working with a reduced budget. Another part of that deal, it turns out, is C.K. having the ability to take a year off if he's feeling burned out, and so the fourth season of the brilliant comedy/drama/short film one-man show hybrid debuts more than 19 months after the last original episode aired. However you choose to categorize it, "Louie" has been one of the very best shows on television each year it's been on, and it's a pleasure to have it coming back at last.
