    I took you up on this one and binged it all the way through.

    I got the feeling the writer/s haven't yet figured out whether they want to be serious about it - it's like they haven't yet fully fleshed the identity of the show.

    It's not bad though, but it is still maturing.

    I think that's part of its charm tbh. The whole premise is so wacky that it gives them a lot of room to involve great dramatic elements with decent comedy. Noho Hank is a fantastic character (and to think, they were planning to axe him after the first episode... he died in the car before they changed their minds), Bill Hader is surprisingly good at the dramatic stuff and Henry Winkler and the whole acting class part of the show is great.

    There have been a couple of really good shows popping up over the last couple of years - Baskets and Atlanta spring to mind along with Barry. Hiro Murai, who directed quite a few Atlanta episodes, actually had a hand in quite a lot of Barry as well. The episode last week (directed by Hader) was a brilliant departure from the norm for Barry like Teddy Perkins was for Atlanta in that it just got more and more "out there" as it went along.

    In other news, I've finished American Gods S2. Such a cracking show.

    From acting, to the weave of the script to the music... long since i've breathlessly watched a show.

    Well the first episode is out and god damn was that tense uncomfortable viewing that makes you want to drink a bottle of vodka to recover.

    Watched Chernobyl last night.... Compelling viewing but fucking hell its terrifying. Watching those poor bastards as it all unravels around them, ignorant of the dangers.

    That's the thing though. Knowing that this is what actually happened makes it so.
