Storyline

Disillusioned at the thought of taking down another "mark," depressed, low-level hit man Barry Berkman seeks a way out. When the Midwesterner reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an actor who is bedding a mobster's wife, little does Barry know that the City of Angels may be his sanctuary. He follows his target into acting class and ends up instantly drawn to the community of eager hopefuls, especially dedicated student Sally, who becomes the object of his affection. While Barry wants to start a new life as an actor, his handler, Fuches, has other ideas, and the hit man's criminal past won't let him walk away so easily. Written by Jwelch5742

High hopes, not disappointed...clever, funny, even brilliant.
8 July 2018 | by wfsymesSee all my reviews

I expect Hader to be great, and he is. An excellent mixture of comedy and tragedy. The supporting cast is an ensemble of superb actors playing satire, serious and at times, outrageous. My wife and I had to start saving a few episodes for later so that we didn't blow through the whole season in one weekend, which would have been easy to do. The main characters are brilliantly conceived and performed, and the supporting characters are equally gifted. Winkler, Carrigan, and Root steal every scene they are in. Newsome is a lusty detective with a nose for deceit...she is wonderful to watch in action. This is a workable ensemble and I hope that we get to see many seasons of Barry. Congratulations to all the cast for an enjoyable first season.
