Critic Consensus: Horace and Pete creator Louis C.K. uses his signature blend of awkward humor -- and brilliant performances from a top-notch cast -- to pull off an engagingly ambitious experiment in TV tragicomedy.

Critic Reviews for Horace and Pete Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (15)

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.

Feb 1, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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.

It is clear that C.K. is fascinated with the idea of bending expectations and pushing the boundaries of television in the process.

Let me say here that I have no idea whether Horace and Pete is good or bad.

Louis CK is one of the greatest thinkers of this age. The genius is at work. Let's take a leap of faith and observe. We could be in the middle of something special.

Sep 26, 2016 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

This Web series written and directed by C.K. might be one of the most original offerings on TV right now. Once you get into it, it is utterly absorbing.

Jul 13, 2016 | Full Review…

It feels more like theater than television has anytime since the fabled 1950s, though an extended political debate attempts to nail it as up-to-the-minute. It's also an opportunity to watch great actors at play.
