Great Dark Comedy Series. An assassin moonlights as an actor and tries to keep both sides of his life separated. The main and supporting characters are hilarious and the series is great.

Maybe this works for millennials seeking to achieve some "authenticity," but not for me. The actors - deadpan Hader, Winkler, the girlfriend, the supporting cast - not funny. I don't care about them at all. Who could care about cardboard?

Hollywood m-bating itself is not funny. What is supposed to be interesting about actors doing their job? No one makes movies about people at car repair shops doing the job, or bank tellers.

As for the bit about discovering 'emotions' and 'being human.' Pardon me: sentimental drivel: as Tony Soprano showed, once a sociopath, always a sociopath.

A 7 out of 10! We found this series surprisingly great! Quite a bit of action, quirky plot twists, and great acting by all the cast members. Very refreshing! It is one you have to binge on.

Barry is dark, funny and often bizarre. So many delightful, odd characters brought to life by really talented actors. If you start watching, and you're wavering on whether to continue, I would say stick it out to the end. There are only 8 short episodes and episode 7 is amazing, truly. Episode 8 is pretty fabulous too but ep 7 is a big reason why this show was nominated for and won various awards. Also watching the special features that have short explanations on each ep by creators Alec Berg and Bill Hader adds another level of appreciation regarding what they've created. By the end you really feel all the talent and love that went into making Barry, it's creatively inspiring.
