Barry
Sunday, April 24
It's been almost THREE years since a new episode of Barry appeared. Many of us will want to go back and re-watch some or all of Season 2 just to remember what the h*ll is going on. But it is certainly worth the effort - Barry, played by SNL alum Bill Hader, is hilarious, and Henry Winkler (with the 'Fonz' a distant memory) is superb. Season 3 finally debuts on Crave on April 24.
