A different life and different style to live a choice between acting or killing!
12 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

This latest "HBO" series called "Barry" is a nice blend of comedy and drama which entertains never bringing a dull episode and you as the viewer will become hooked! Even though the plot is a little far out each episode is a journey of choice and fate.

Comic Bill Hader is "Barry" a Midwest man who's life centers around being a hit man and killing as he even does jobs for the mob! So when a job takes him out west to L.A. things occur and his life takes a spin that it lands him in an acting class! And you guessed it "Barry" has caught the showbiz fever!

Each episode he feels conflicted between each way of life as he's tied between killing and acting. Along the way "Barry" meets young and want to be star of anything with a cast and that's Sally(Sarah Goldberg) who takes a liking to "Barry" and the sparks and flames of love also fly between them! Also in a good supporting turn is the work from veteran Henry Winkler as a tough and direct acting class coach. Overall well done series that's entertaining by blending comedy and drama watch it I give it thumbs up!
