Louis C.K. didn't waste any time putting the fictional version of himself into uncomfortable positions on the Season 3 premiere of "Louie" (Thu., 10:30 p.m. ET on FX). On the physical side -- after his car got smashed for no apparent reason right in front of him -- he bought a motorcycle on impulse, and almost immediately crashed it.
On the emotional side, he hit a bit of a crossroads with his girlfriend and broke up with her. Well actually, she kind of broke up with herself for him ... twice! Louie spent both of those scenes painfully silent and incapable of saying what he was really thinking feeling.
Even when she told him to just for once man up and be real, he couldn't do it. If he could, the show wouldn't be nearly as compelling.
C.K. talked to HuffPost TV about the new season, promising longer stories and a more cinematic feel. Find out what he means as "Louie" continues Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on FX.
