Obligatory Good News Everyone/Fun on a Bun reference!

The streamer promises that the 10 all-new episodes will have something for everyone. New viewers will be able to pick up the series from here, while long-time fans will recognize payoffs to decades-long mysteries – including developments in the epic love story of Fry and Leela, the mysterious contents of Nibbler’s litter box, the secret history of evil Robot Santa, and the whereabouts of Kif and Amy’s tadpoles. Meanwhile there’s a whole new pandemic in town as the crew explores the future of vaccines, bitcoin, cancel culture, and streaming TV.


Good grief, Futurama has come back from the dead more times than Jason at this point.


Finally started watching the latest season of Barry. Just 2 episodes in

Oooooh man this show is so intense and uncomfortable now, but they’ve still got that comedy edge to keep things fun.
I hope they can get swapped to the Drama category for awards season, because while it has tons of style and depth to its writing, I don’t think it’ll win anybody over as a clear “best Comedy season” of the year.

Anyway Barry has hit full rock bottom by this point, he’s really scary, sad, and gone full mental breakdown. Great stuff from Bill Hader, wow.
First episode of the season he really doesn’t get many lines that was cool
I feel bad for the guy despite knowing he’s in total irredeemable mode with all he’s done so far.

(Also I read a recap and I never noticed how much “I’m gonna stop killing… starting… now!” was such a running joke in the series. I wonder if that’ll show up at all this season, now that I know of it.)

Then you’ve got Fuches acting super duper suspicious IMO.
We learn quickly in ep2 that hes an old family friend (uuuugh whyyyyy) and he seems really sorry to Barry… but I just can’t trust anything from that man anymore. Something seems really off about giving up trying to take Barry down.

Cousineau is living the high life of fame which is neat to see, but maybe about to go too far, as he hilariously puts on a one-man show to a reporter describing his sensational case. Good job Henry Winkler hehehe.

And I’m sad to see Sally ended up where she has. Her family (well her mom) doesn’t pay any consideration to her trauma and emotional state, she’s thoroughly screwed up her professional life, and grappling with the fallout of Barry’s relationship.

And ooh this show really has great style. The huge wide shot of Barry’s flashback hallucinations, the zoom-in to him getting beat up at prison, the way scenes fade into and out of each other, the music and sound effects being pretty unsettling at times, mmmm mmm I eat it all up.
Also also I love how dialogue is repeated so much in this show to the point it becomes frightening. A lot of characters in the recent seasons have had explosive moments of pain, that either starts out ridiculous or saddening, and turns to scary, quickly. Mental downward spirals are spooky to watch.


Tonight on Barry:

“'Toro… hehe like Guillermo Del Toro-- WTF is that actually Guillermo Del Toro??!”

[30 minutes later…]

WTF Fred Armisen??!

Also in a side-note, oof that acting class scene with Sally was truly, kinda accurate yikes.

Also they’re kinda sorta making me feel for Fuches? Dude actually seems to be looking out for Barry here, no whiff of an ulterior motive at all (other than probably needing him as protection).


The Silo has been quite great so far. Eager to see what happens next.


I’m so sorry you had to see that one, it is a must

Barry finale tonight, hyped for it. All the storyline are getting together.

@TheChicken, did you manage to see the other episodes released ? Or are you still on the early episodes.

Also, a bit of a fun fact for you : listen for winds. The show use it regularly, to throw back at Barry first kill in Afghanistan, as an indicator of his state of mind. Once you know that, you will catch it all the time.


My dad and I are still in the early episodes I think just ep 4. But we’ll get there soon enough.

Hope it can all tie up and end in a solid way.
