Critic Reviews for Barry Season 2

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (11)

It's as funny as it is dark - and it's packed with real pathos.

Top Critic

Barry's mission isn't to bust all the stereotypes it encounters, but the ones it bothers to dismantle have yielded such ingenuity and charm that it's a shame the show doesn't think just a little bigger.

In its second season, Barry is sadder, with the gap between its madcap Chechen gangster plots and interludes of moral reckoning proving even more yawning.

Apr 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The darkness and light play perfectly off each other, creating yet another fascinating and hilarious season, and one determined to be true to its own twisted identity.

HBO's dark comedy, Barry, is able to hit the mark during the sophomore season and the series capably avoids the sophomore slump.

Apr 7, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Barry Season 2 is effortlessly easy to watch and continues to examine the difficulties of being honest with who you are deep inside and the elusive questions of whether we can change.

Apr 3, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Barry remains somewhat unclassifiable, other than to classify it as excellent. In season 2, it's also become HBO's best comedy running.

Apr 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The style Berg and Hader are setting up is essentially a go-for-broke mentality, and it provides an extra layer of tension on top of the ticking bomb of Barry's mental health.

Apr 1, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It contains enough weird, sweet, funny, rumpled and sinister characters to make a few more half-hours worth watching.

Apr 1, 2019 | Full Review…

No matter how deep into the darkest parts of its main character's heart the show plunges, it never forgets just how many comedic tools it has at its disposal.
