HBO's hottest show is "BARRY". Former SNL member and current boyfriend of the internet, Bill Hader, has gone ALL OUT. This show has everything! Depression, ptsd, a morally conflicted hit-man, and if that's not funny enough, just wait till episode 7!

Okay, but seriously, this is an amazing show. Really well written and acted. The shifts from comedy to drama are so intense! I love how the mob guys are written, especially noho hank and the humour that character brings. I love how all of Barry's actions are in-line with his character and what we know about him so far. This show is so good. I am forcing everyone I know to watch.

I agree with everything good said about this black comedy and can only emphatically add that the Chechen gang is exquisitely crafted and hilarious. Perhaps the most extraordinary character, the bald Noho ("Can I get you a submarine sandwich?"), is unforgettable. Just a brilliant performance. The ridiculous twins, one who is obsessed with killing Barry and then his tortuous brother who insists on building a set of stocks, are wonderfully absurd.

When I first read the description of Barry, I immediately dismissed the show as being either too high concept or too gimmicky to be fun. I was wrong. Not only is this show a total hidden gem, but it contains some of the funniest and most morally complex characters on TV.

From the start, Barry gets almost everything right. The writing is caustic and funny, always delivered with both heartfelt sincerity and a darkly funny edge (you have to look no further than the character of Noho Hank to see where the soul of the show lies). The violence is frequently punchy and always well done, sometimes quite shocking in it's unexpectedness. The performances across the board are stellar, especially from Winkler, Hader, Carrigan and Root, who all play extremely eccentric men who's goals come at odds.

All that being said, I think it's imperative for more people to watch this show. This is "peak TV". Like Breaking Bad and The Sopranos, Barry portrays a conflicted character with depth and surprising beauty. Don't miss out on it.

Having just finished Chapter 7, and realizing that I have to wait for the finale just like the rest of you, I decided to give a reason as to why you should be watching. The film major in me sees the inevitable gold mine of information that this show is. Berg and Hader have began crafting an amazing world with this show. There isn't a single character that feels out of place. Barry has this incredibly relatable motivation of 'What am I doing with my life?" Yet it is portrayed in a way that pulls you away from the dogged question in reality. Barry is the epitome of dark comedy, you'll laugh hard with one breath and gut wrench in the next. There is no action that does not have a consequence, the conflicts that arise only resolve in more conflict. The actors acting as actors learning to act is sublime. I could go for days about why Barry is a new staple for HBO, but I suggest you watch it and see for yourself. If you're studying film/script-writing/acting you need to add this to your watch list, it's a goldmine of skills.

Sometimes you watch a show and it's like everything about it just works and that is the case with Barry. The acting is outstanding all the way around. Congratulations to Bill Hader for making every scene he is in perfection. I love all the characters really and could go on and on but I want to just mention Henry Winkler. What a great role for him! Fantastic character and I would watch the show just to see more of Gene if I didn't love everyone else too. Mostly spectacular writing though. The writers killed it on this show (pun intended). Congratulations to everyone.

It's hard to understand how a show like this manages to be funny and emotionally satisfying, within it's short episode spans of 25-30 mins. It's even harder to understand how come this isn't that popular.

Writing, direction, acting and at times, soundtrack is all top notch. Bill Hader is terrifyingly good throughout. I don't want this review to be long, but just want to add that it's probably one of THE best shows running in right now.

Bill Hader really showed his chops in this episode but I have to say that Chris Marquette as Chris Lucado, stole the scene! His freak out in the car was amazing! Why this actor doesn't have more top movie/tv roles I don't know. This episode was the best of them all!

I felt like I was watching Bill Hader win an Emmy in real time. Absolutely loved it!

Peltgrande 4 June 2018

This is the first review I've written for imdb despite using the site for years. The reason? This show. I loved it. I feel like it's a show that might fly under the radar and get missed by many people who would love it.

Bill Hader is excellent in it. I have a whole new respect for him as an actor. The supporting cast is just as fantastic. Henry Winkler plays his role perfect. My favorite though, is Anthony Carrigan as NoHo Hank. He provides comic relief in a way that hits my sense of humor dead on. I hope to see more of him in this show and future roles.

Give this show a try. I seem some reviews comment on episode 7, and I agree that episode brings the show to the next level for me. I'm writing this just after I watched that episode. I loved it long before this episode, but if it hasn't got you fully hooked after a few, hold on until then.

Barry is absolutely deserving of all the praise it gets and Bill Hader is excellent in this! This show has everything in it...comedy, drama, action, suspense, etc, etc. I promise you will not be disappointed once you start watching it!

Right from the get go I knew this would be a gem, from the trailers to the clips, there was something unique and charming about it. Happily I was not disappointing as the show now has my full attention and I really liked it, looks like another HBO. So you know the premise, killer gets dragged into an acting class, finds out he loves it even though he sucks, now he wants to balance killing with his new found passion. But without giving anything away, there is more to the story than just that. The writing was as witty and charismatic as I expected, kind of reminded me of Dexter. The producers are known for some pretty big shows like Seinfeld, Silicon Valley, and of course Bill Hader himself. So its no surprise we have another fun little show on our hands.

Bill Hader's performance is just as unexpectedly good as everything else in this show, his character is very intriguing, unique, and fun to watch. Same goes for all the other actors like Stephen Root and Sarah Goldberg, such a great chemistry everyone has makes for a good show so far. I'm fully invested in the show and very much look forward to seeing the entire thing. The story clearly has many directions to go in and I can't wait to see what was created.
