The first time I saw a corpse was walking to the barracks with the house help, near 21 road junction, Festac Town. Actually, now that I think of it, that's not true. I did see Grandma's corpse, but her case is different. Her body was carefully prepared and placed in

The overarching theme in these three episodes is Louie’s relationships with the women in his life--from his daughters and ex-wife to his past flame, Pamela, and a new Hungarian love interest, Amia.
