Critic Reviews for Barry Season 2

It sounds like a precious premise. But great work from Hader and Henry Winkler as his acting teacher elevates the story to something that stuck with me stubbornly all year.

Barry is dark but hilarious and a worthy binge ahead of a third season.

Jul 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Barry's mission isn't to bust all the stereotypes it encounters, but the ones it bothers to dismantle have yielded such ingenuity and charm that it's a shame the show doesn't think just a little bigger.

Top Critic

In its second season, Barry is sadder, with the gap between its madcap Chechen gangster plots and interludes of moral reckoning proving even more yawning.

Apr 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The darkness and light play perfectly off each other, creating yet another fascinating and hilarious season, and one determined to be true to its own twisted identity.

Barry is a mashup of action-adventure and sitcom and with a brilliant inevitability, its male protagonist is a super-competent badass emotionally hamstrung doofus.

'Barry' continues to freeze our blood and our smiles. [Full Review in Spanish]

And so another exceptional season of Barry comes to a close with an appropriately explosive ending.

It is easily the best show streaming right now. Jump right in.

Season 2 had its problems, but astounding sequences like that suggest new evolutions ahead. Barry can't change, but I hope Barry does.

    Unsuprisingly lived up to the standards of the pilot season and with added humour. I love it.

    Bill Hader is great in the role. Well written storyline and production throughout. One of the best shows around.

    Weak compaired to S1.

    While I enjoyed much of Season 1, Season 2 was such an unstoppable roller coaster, I ended up binge-watching the whole thing tonight. I'd call it and everyone involved "brilliant," but right now I'm too out of breath to trust my judgment.

    A lot darker than the first season
