This show is good. Billed as a comedy but not really.

Just good, watch it.

I watch this before I catch up on Silicon Valley and Westworld on Monday mornings.

Barry is a pleasant surprise.

Last night's ep was unreal.  Sad it is only an 8 episode season so only 1 left.  It's not a "comedy" I agree but it is also funny as hell.  Noho Hank is one of my favorite characters on T.V. right now.

If it's not a comedy, what is it? I've seen the trailer a few times and it did not inspire me to watch the show.

It's a dramedy? It definitely has it's funny moments (I love the Chechens) but it also gets really really fucking dark.

I'm sure it's not everyone's cup of tea but give it a shot. I'm loving Bill Hader.

Heh, Hader just said season 2 will be darker. Not sure how that is possible.

New trailer out.

I have now watched the first season four times. FOUR TIMES.

If you are not watching this show, you are an asshole.  Ok, that's unfair. If you have not watched this, you are really missing out. It is so, so good.

Season has been good so far, but tonight's episode was BONKERS.  Mash-up of Stephen Chow, Coen Brothers, and Sam Raimi. Completely nuts.

After that episode, all the wife and I could say was "Wtf did we just watch?"

It was entertaining as fuck but maybe a bit too much over the top for what the show has been so far.

The show has been pretty out there already really if you think about it. This was just heightened up another notch. I attribute it to Barry's degenerating mental state coloring his view of reality although apparently in the next ep Fuchs has a big bandage on his face, so who knows.

This season was great.  Berg and Hader are just doing amazing shit week in week out.

I could see Hader directing some Coen bros. level shit so give him a feature already.

This was a good season. I was also super impressed by the directing of the Season Finale and was shocked to see that Bill Hader did it.

I could see this too if he gets more practice. This last episode really felt like he has a great eye and style in the making.

I just started watching this and have gotten through 2 episodes already. It's pretty damn great. I get a very Grosse Pointe Blanke feel, without the hip-80's nostalgia vibe to it, and a lot more self-referential humor with the acting classes. And the bald Chechen (who played Victor Zzaz on Gotham) is just great.

It's much darker than Grosse Point Blank was. I don't think it's as obvious in the first few episodes but it does go to some dark places fairly quickly.
