Critic Reviews for Barry Season 2

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (12)

Barry is dark but hilarious and a worthy binge ahead of a third season.

Jul 26, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

Barry is a mashup of action-adventure and sitcom and with a brilliant inevitability, its male protagonist is a super-competent badass emotionally hamstrung doofus.

'Barry' continues to freeze our blood and our smiles. [Full Review in Spanish]

May 30, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

And so another exceptional season of Barry comes to a close with an appropriately explosive ending.

May 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It is easily the best show streaming right now. Jump right in.

May 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 2 had its problems, but astounding sequences like that suggest new evolutions ahead. Barry can't change, but I hope Barry does.

Audience Reviews for Barry: Season 2

    Bill Hader continues to perform an awe-strikingly outstanding role.

    Great cast Bill Hader always picks great roles and Henry Winkler is charming us again after his perfect role in arrested development.. This Show is another uniquely perfect comedy we all so need to free ourselves with laughter.. We have one of the outrageous villians from Gotham who plays a oddball buffoon mod guy, he is just perfect in Barry hope to see more of him in the future.. Barry goes through the struggle of what he wants from his "LIFE and CAREER" .. i love to review and help bring good tv to people but i can not give away any details.. I am the person who never watches trailers..

    Entertaining, too short, and a little bit too far over its skis
  • Aug 14, 2019
    The writing on this show is smart, dark, and hilarious. I love all of the characters in it and loved every moment of season two.
  • Aug 14, 2019
    perfect follow up i can not wait for season 3 so please please dont take to long
  • Aug 10, 2019
    Wow. Never thought I'd see comedy and violence mixed with such subtlety.
  • Aug 09, 2019
    Just not creating anything near sensical. It seems like harder has one facial expression
  • Aug 05, 2019
    It wasn't as good as first season. But is still amazingly strong.
  • Aug 02, 2019
    How could you not love NoHo Hank? Barry? The whole "breaking into acting," thing. It was so truly captured. Binge watched both seasons.
  • Jul 31, 2019
    This might seriously be out of all the great shows we have right now, this the best show on television and all plat forms! If your still salty about that final Game of Thrones season and assuming you didn't immediately turn off your TV in anger then you would have caught a glimpse of the show you really should be watching right now! Case in point, episode 5 ronny/lilly. Enough said!
