What can I say about this HBO tv show…?

its ok but I couldn’t figure out if it’s a dark comedy or a straight-up action show. Some parts are funny, but to me, it misses out on being a comedy, now I’ve watched Future man, Tick, Chuck, Buffy, and Misfits and doesn’t seem like any of those shows. Henry Winkler is a nice touch but seems stale.

The story is about an ex-marine turn hitman. His job leads him to LA and during the act of tailing the “mark” he ends up joining an acting group and wanting to leave the hitman profession behind. Yes, to me it’s slow, but maybe to others, it may be funny.

DVD extras are the world of Barry and Inside the episode. The world of Barry has each actor/actress talk about what Barry is about. (it is a short running 3 minutes), Inside an episode take a short look at each episode (about 2 minutes each).

So, my opinion its ok if there is a season 2, I might watch it.
