    Friday Apr 24 | Grist Magazine

    Pretty much all of Louis C.K.'s humor relies on self-deprecation, so it's not really surprising that he would shit all over his entire generation in the opening skit of the most recent episode of Louie , his excellent show on FX. He comes face-to-face with a Young Person who - surprise, surprise! - hates baby boomers because of the mess they've left everyone else to deal with: Louis: Alright, well, I'll just alert my entire generation that your generation needs nothing from us.

    I've learned never to underestimate comedian Louis C.K.'s "Louie," a sitcom now in its fifth season that has perfected the disconcerting experience of making viewers feel both as if they've been mugged and that they'd really like to take the mugger out for coffee.
