One of the greatest television series of the last few years just ended. On this episode of the Between TV podcast, Jose and I are joined by TV critic Valerie Ettenhofer to discuss the Barry series finale.
We start the episode by breaking down the finale itself, with special attention to what we can only assume is the industry’s award season darling “The Mask Collector,” and then go through each characters’ arc across the four seasons. Not to mention the most important question we’ve been asking ourselves for two months—where did the title music go?
Throughout the discussion, we mention plenty of wonderful articles about Barry written throughout the season. Check them out below.
