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

Nothing short of an achievement in 2 genres: Comedy and Drama
1 August 2020 | by nalinnawaniSee all my reviews

It's hard to understand how a show like this manages to be funny and emotionally satisfying, within it's short episode spans of 25-30 mins. It's even harder to understand how come this isn't that popular.

Writing, direction, acting and at times, soundtrack is all top notch. Bill Hader is terrifyingly good throughout. I don't want this review to be long, but just want to add that it's probably one of THE best shows running in right now.
