Marvel's Jessica Jones

Earlier today the 2016 Emmy nominations were announced, and you know what that means: it’s time to complain about how wrongheaded Emmy voters are for failing to recognize your favorite show.

Horace and Pete

After surprising fans with a new web series called Horace and Pete earlier this year, comedian Louis C.K. has delivered 10 episodes of the series that isn’t really a straight-up comedy series. The project plays out more like a stage production with an interesting blend of comedy and drama, driven by some very compelling characters written by Louis C.K. himself.

But sadly, Louis C.K. has announced that the tenth episode of Horace and Pete, which hit the we earlier this month, would be the end of the series. In an e-mail with fans, the comedian gave a fond farewell and thanks to all who worked on the project and gushed about how happy he was for his fans to receive it with open arms.
