Horace And Pete is a one off series created by comedian Louis C.K. during the hiatus of his half hour show Louie. It seemed to have come out of nowhere and showed up on his website and was self-financed and written and directed by C.K. starring Steve Buscemi with a strong ensemble cast. The cast includes such heavyweights as Edie Falco, Aland Alda, and Jessica Lange along with several comedian cameos thrown in the mix. This show is billed as a tragedy and should be, but it has moments of levity. Overall, it is a pretty devastating portrait of the tragic lives of two men fated to suffer. I would go as far to say that it is probably not for everyone as there is a lot of non PC dialogue and uncomfortable confrontations-cringe drama if you will. However, I found it compulsive viewing.
