    Barry

    Just watched the first two episodes today. This show definitely looks promising. It certainly has my attention.

    I am really digging it so far. It reminds me a bit of Grosse Pointe Blank. Hader is excellent and Root is equal parts supportive of Barry but with an understated amount of terrifying. He clearly cares for Barry but I can see their relationship falling apart and going real bad, real fast.

    The moment I knew I was going to love this show was when Brad is dressed up in the dreadlocks and did the scene from True Romance and got the concept that everything practiced in this are scenes from movies, as opposed to more traditional theater. There's a cynicism there but it seems based in practicality because it's based in Los Angeles.

    Gonna have to do a remit on that last post. This might be the first new show I've loved out of the gate since perhaps BoJack Horseman. Hader and Root are tremendous together and it's really got potential to turn both the comedy and thriller genres on their heads.

    This last episode was the best of the season. I love the serious tone this show takes at times. Bill Hader really crushed in this particular one.

    Great first season. Last two episodes were really dark and hit just the right note. As others stated, Hader really shines in this role. Can't wait to see where they go from here.

    I fucking love this show and am beyond excited for it's return. Henry Winkler was a goddamn delight.

    Last night's premiere was great. Very funny and I can see how potentially dark it's gonna get for the next several episodes.

    Is anyone else into the 2nd season like I am? It's walking a major tightrope but I think it's going well so far.

    Every episode has been super intense since about the middle of last season. I remember when I started it thinking it was a comedy. God damn this show is DARK. And I love it.
