Critics Consensus

PTSD and comedy make strangely endearing bedfellows in Barry, which proves more poignant than its sketch show premise.

Audience Reviews for Barry: Season 1

  • Jan 19, 2023
    The way everything happens is enjoyable, it has moments of everything that makes the series brilliant.
  • Jan 16, 2023
    I like the way everything happens and is pretty realistic without being too over the top.

    Well-written dark comedy. Barry is predictable in a good way and hits every note it attempts. Every episode is solid as a standalone episode, but there are a number of scenes that are truly fascinating to watch. Bill Hader is perfect as Barry, the mild-mannered assassin struggling to leave his past behind. There are a couple weird elements to the show that don't work as well (namely Henry Winkler's romance), but this is a minor critique. Overall, I would recommend Barry for a unique story told in a familiar way.

    utterly boring, stopped it after 5 episodes because nothing really happens
  • Nov 05, 2022
    I held off on watching this for a while just cause it didn't seem interesting. But I gave it a shot, and a few episodes in i was hooked! Barry is so funny, the characters are great, and the story is interesting. Almost every episode ends with me wanting to see what happens next.

    Bill Hader is a balls-out entertainment machine! One of the best shows to come out on HBO in a decade. It slowly introduces the absurd so that it's normal & soo funny. The only "woke" in this show is when they make fun of it along with the insanity & depravity & pself importance of Hollywood. The show is inclusive but it does not go overboard & shove it down your throat. EVery character has a place & they work in the script. Gay relationships are endearing & hilarious. No race card BS for refreshing change! Bill Hader has always been under-rated & under developed. One of the best authentic talents out there.

    Superbly acted and written, riveting, funny, heart breaking and unpredictable. Everyone is utterly superb in it and it just keeps getting better and better the more it goes on. Obviously considering the content it's not for everyone but for someone who can look past some blood and guts and swearing there's real excellence here. Hader is superb as the star of the show but Goldberg just blows everyone out of the water, she's amazing!

    Barry - Season 1 opens the door for many possibilities as to where the series can go, and with this season, it is looking very good! A fresh, bizarre, and genius way of inserting drama, crime and comedy - call this a dark parody if you will. ‘Barry' does everything right and I'm excited for what's to come in Season 2. Bill Hader is phenomenal!
  • Aug 30, 2022
    Uma comedia surpreendente, não sou fã de series de comedia, mas é incrível com Barry me cativou. Personagens bem trabalhados e serie bem dirigida e roteirizada, momentos cômicos extremamente bem pensados e desenvolvidos. A serie é capas de capturar a ação do espectador já em sua primeira temporada.

    Brilliant and smart HBO mumblecore style
