"Horace and Pete" - Louis C.K.'s new show
Has anyone checked out "Horace and Pete" yet? It's got a great cast (Louis C.K., Steve Buscemi, Edie Falco, Alan Alda, Jessica Lange).
It's only available via Louis C.K.'s website. Much like "Louis", there's not really anything else quite like it on right now. It's shot multi-camera in the style of sitcoms with laugh tracks, but there is no laugh track here. The performances feel like theater performances, which probably has a lot to do with the way it's made. It's very shaggy in its storytelling (some elements are like mini-skits, that have nothing to do with the larger story) and it has a lot of tonal shifts. It can be funny, dramatic, dark, etc. all in the span of one episode.
I know that I like it, but I'm not sure how much I like it until I've seen more. I've only seen the first episode so far. I suspect it will be a very polarizing show, and I'd be very curious to hear others' thoughts on it.
