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.

Horace: You alright? What's up?
Zach: I was charged $4.50 fro a Budweiser and that guy was charged $3. Just not sure why the discrepancy?
Horace: He's been coming here a long time.
Zach: So is that a privilege for just that one guy?
Horace: Some people pay $4.50 and some people pay $3.
Zach: Ok. How do you decide that? Is there like a list?
Horace: If he looks like him he pays $3 and if he looks like you he pays $4.50.
Zach: So just out and out discrimination? Are you aware how unfair and totally not okay that is?

Why oh why do you have to wait so long before someone figures out that someone might just want to watch a quality dramatic production?

Thanks to Pig Newton (presumably Louis) for putting their butts on the line to do something like this.

It's a fine production. With the exception of some small glitches in sound (occasional ambient echo, one surprising mic tap) production succeeds in mainlining the product straight into the vein. Lots of long takes, dialog that's so direct and lively and full-on it's like latching on to a freight train. An absolute delight to see fine acting talent, new and old, invited to participate in the spectacle, and all take their direction well and otherwise rise to the occasion. Sets and props are great, lighting is balanced and nice on the eyes.

It's funny because normally the first sign of good production is that you don't notice the production. But, trust me, my reflections on production (beside the minor sound issues) are an afterthought.

The important thing is that we get a story. And what a story! That's all I need to say; no need to spoil anything. Duck in and hang on tight.

One odd remonstrance: Let's face it: Louis can't stretch. But he can be forgiven in this case. His standard issue character is on-target, and you sometimes sort of bask, in a backgrounded way, in the realization that this is his labor of love.

Check it out.
