    Just finished watching Barry. That was totally terrific but, how come OITNB is considered cut from comedy but not this? It just went straight drama, not even dramedy territory anymore. They really should see that next year

    Also the ronny/lily episode was greatly choreographed with perfect plan-sequences. But it had no correlation to the rest of the story and its plot was totally forgotten by next episode. Still I’ll give Bill Hader his due for directing tho, he sure had to worked a lot on that one.

    Thanks to the ones who recommended it. This field is fantastic and is giving much anticipation for sunday

    That was the point. The episode was supposed to random as hell. As for why the Academy doesn’t consider it as a drama could be because it’s only a half-hour per episode.

    It’s definitely a dramedy but I personally always thought Barry was funny in a dark, twisted way…

    Indeed. Thay achieve that perfectly in the first season and what helped that was Barry’s kind of apathy and stiffness.

    When he start to loose his feeling and reflects on his actions the thing just got plain serious. Basically the twist in the season 1 finale darkened the show to a point of no return because for the first time he had to kill over a context he was emotionally invested. And that is not a problem, the narrative asked for that and was really well executed (as a dramatic story).

    The show still keeps great comic reliefs, specially Anthony Carrigan. And Bill Hader’s overall ludicrous irony is impressive. Both of them would be fine winners.

    Noho Hanks texts to Barry in season 1 cracked me up so much. I love Anthony Carrigan in this role.

    I’ll never understand the claims that Barry is more drama than comedy

    For Your GoldDerby Decade Awards Consideration:

    Downton Abbey in Series, Supporting Actress and Ensemble. Glee in Supporting Actress, Guest Actor and Guest Actress.

    Claire Foy and Lisa Kudrow in Drama and Comedy Actress respectively.

    I think Barry is only considered a comedy because of the people involved. It’s much more dramatic than something like Killing Eve.

    i do a little. And I really like the cinematography of Russian Doll. I thought that was a nice win.

    Nope. Fleabag is about performance, editing, script, but I’m not tuning in for the landscape.

    I rewatched Fleabag Season 2 last night and I think I liked it better the second time around because I regret everything I said about Andrew Scott. He was sensational in the show. I’m still thinking I’m going with “ronny/lily” for directing though because it’s so much more of an Emmy bait type of episode directing-wise.

    Yes. Barry has some extremely dark moments, but I think it’s definitely comedy. The first season had a bit of trouble balancing the comedy and drama, but season 2 pulled it off wonderfully.

    This is really interesting for me to read, because I absolutely believe season 1 had a better balance. Season 2 is heavier, darker and definitely a drama, with some extremely funny moments (but not particularly frequent). I’m aware I’m in the minority with this assessment, but I just can’t perceive season 2 any other way.

    Both were running concurrently this season, and yes, Barry might have more “jokes” but the tone of Killing Eve is very fun and breezy where the tone of Barry is dark and dramatic, so I would agree with you.

    I mean to be fair, Bill Hader warned people for a while Season 2 would be much darker than Season 1. So the Academy is responsible for the possible category fraud. However, I still think it’s still considered a comedy contender because it’s only a half-hour. If they extend the episodes in the future seasons, they’ll probably stick in into drama. There should just be a dramedy category lol.
