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

The style Berg and Hader are setting up is essentially a go-for-broke mentality, and it provides an extra layer of tension on top of the ticking bomb of Barry's mental health.

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

Each episode in the second season so far improves on where the last left off. While not as laugh as loud funny as any given episode in season one, it's no less engrossing.

Dark and funny are a delicate balance to pull off convincingly, but "Barry" again proves it's that rare show that knows how to do it.

Barry was the best episode TV last night... And in a season of really incredible work, it proved that not only is Barry one of the best shows on TV right now, it's also one of the best horror shows ever.

Barry has proven that it is capable of sustaining a story beyond a single season and now makes me think it could continue for several more.

HBO's dark comedy, Barry, is able to hit the mark during the sophomore season and the series capably avoids the sophomore slump.

The show is still disarmingly funny, and now that we've seen the emotionally devastating depths it's willing to plunge to, it's all the more disarming.
April 2, 2019
Barry remains somewhat unclassifiable, other than to classify it as excellent. In season 2, it's also become HBO's best comedy running.

The show's storylines cohere around the reflexive lies people tell themselves.

Barry resets the table effortlessly, introducing new threats and shades to characters while still having a masterful hold over the show's disparate tone.

Slowly but surely, Barry turns into a show about people who can't acknowledge the truth about themselves, even when it's staring them right in the face.
April 1, 2019
It's a pitch-perfect introduction to the season, partially because it features some of the series' best writing and direction right out of the gate.

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.
March 26, 2019
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.

April 1, 2019
No matter how deep into the darkest parts of its main character's heart the show plunges, it never forgets just how many comedic tools it has at its disposal.
March 29, 2019
The unique excellence of the second season... is how adroitly Hader and co-creator Alec Berg find ways to raise the stakes for Barry while keeping the show's tone darkly amused.
