High hopes, not disappointed...clever, funny, even brilliant.
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.
