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

As Charming And Fun As I Imagined
26 March 2018 | by neener3707See all my reviews

Right from the get go I knew this would be a gem, from the trailers to the clips, there was something unique and charming about it. Happily I was not disappointing as the show now has my full attention and I really liked it, looks like another HBO. So you know the premise, killer gets dragged into an acting class, finds out he loves it even though he sucks, now he wants to balance killing with his new found passion. But without giving anything away, there is more to the story than just that. The writing was as witty and charismatic as I expected, kind of reminded me of Dexter. The producers are known for some pretty big shows like Seinfeld, Silicon Valley, and of course Bill Hader himself. So its no surprise we have another fun little show on our hands.

Bill Hader's performance is just as unexpectedly good as everything else in this show, his character is very intriguing, unique, and fun to watch. Same goes for all the other actors like Stephen Root and Sarah Goldberg, such a great chemistry everyone has makes for a good show so far. I'm fully invested in the show and very much look forward to seeing the entire thing. The story clearly has many directions to go in and I can't wait to see what was created.
