"Louie" (Thu., 10:30 p.m. ET on FX) returned to its format of featuring two seemingly unrelated vignettes for its latest installment, "Barney/Never." In the first, he and Robin Williams met at the funeral of Barney Ross, a sleazy comedy club owner they'd both known and not particular liked.
They bonded over their shared disdain of him, and then decided to honor him by taking him up posthumously on an offer they'd refused every time while he was alive. They headed off to his favorite strip club.
Things got awkward when Louie broke the news to the strippers that Barney was dead. While he was not well liked among comedians, he was apparently very good to the strippers and one of their favorite patrons. Immediately, the club's strippers, the DJ and bouncers all started crying at the news.
The second story was a mash-up of C.K. watching a monster of a child named Never, who threw Louis' rug out the window and had diarrhea in his bath tub.. He tied it together by trying to help the kid avoid dying (mostly) unmourned like Barney. Just don't be so horrible if you want people to like you, C.K. told Never. It's pretty simple.
