Trivia

The part of Uncle Pete was written for Joe Pesci. Pesci met with Louis C.K. and liked the script but turned the part down. According to C.K., the lecture that Uncle Pete gives to Pete in "Episode 4" about avoiding cunnilingus was based on a lecture that Pesci gave him. C.K. asked for Pesci's permission to use his words.

Reminds me of Chekhov
5 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Wow. So grim, but I cannot stop watching. Every episode is stomach- churning (the moment in episode two, where Marsha-- Jessica Lange's beau-- tells her his wife is waiting at home....and then that pause before Jessica Lange lets out a brittle chuckle...shiver me timbers!!). It's like I'm flipping over rocks to see the gross, sticky but roiling, thriving stuff underneath.

The cast is outstanding, as is the writing-- I cannot stop thinking of writers like Carson McCullers and Flannery O'Connor. So here I sit, uneasily waiting for...I know not what. One of the darkest and most interesting things I've watched in a long time, with no pat resolution or happy ending in sight.

I hope that eventually its beauty will break my heart; right now I'm still white-knuckling it. But every angel is terrifying, right?
