"So Louie gives fans the sense that they’re being let in on the process, while also carefully guarding your sense of what he’s like. He acknowledges the theater of what he does for a living, the absurdity of trying to communicate with hundreds of thousands of people all at once, and the privilege of his position—all within the framework of the "guy who is sitting here." The message he ends up sending is that Louie may not be the underdog anymore but he’s clearly rooting for the underdog, and maybe that means he’s rooting for you."
1975: During a family camping trip to Disneyworld, lying on the bed in the pop-up trailer. Reading Fantastic Four (probably the issue above) while Rufus’ “Tell Me Something Good" oozed from the radio. I can see that moment so clearly. Can still smell the heady aroma of the comic’s pages.
