Post Barry (HBO)
I thought this was outstanding, and at a compact 8 episodes of 30 minutes easy to watch. Definitely one of the best Breaking Bad successors in terms of every decision having a consequence and makes him more delusional that he can just get away with it, but somehow very funny even at the darkest points. Hader deserves to win the Best Actor Comedy Emmy

This show is incredible. I expected to enjoy it but not as much as I did. Hader is terrific, and so is Henry Winkler, who just scored his first major acting Emmy nod since Happy Days (he has a few guest acting nods from almost 20 years ago). Disappointing that Sarah Goldberg didn't get recognized, she matches Hader a lot. He struggles as a hitman trying to live a normal life with his newfound love of acting, and she struggles as an actress that wants to catch some sort of a break.

I'm curious to see where it goes. Where Cranston's Walter White gradually declined into the villain, it seems Hader's intent is to make a "villainous" character into a good guy.

This is my #1 of the year so far.

Really sad ending though.

Hader and Winkler both won Emmys, but it lost Best Comedy.

Nice premiere

I didn't catch the first time that after Fuches did his whole "Do you have a court order for my DNA?" patting himself on the back, he handed them his can of coke :funny:

Yeah the premiere episode was great. Hank is still awesome and that bit between Hader and Sasha was hilarious.
