News & Interviews for Horace and Pete: Season 1
It's a comedy, mostly, sort of, but a comedy that aims to capture the shifting tones of real life, the pathos and the existential aches as much as the laughter and the absurdities.
Horace and Pete is quiet and intimate when it's at its best, but in so many ways it feels like indulgence. And that's fine.
Gentle awkwardness quickly spirals into full-blown tragicomedy. If the first episode is any indication, Horace and Pete is the next great show to get obsessed over-and Louis did it on his own.
This is an artist with a great deal of clout... - and he's using that cultural currency to challenge himself. It's worth a return visit to see where Horace and Pete will go from here.
It's dark. It's so dark, and random, and devoid of any humor, and out-of-the-blue surreal on a Twin Peaks level, and you know what? I laughed.
