Barry: Remember the brilliant show as a tragedy, not a comedy

Barry, one of the most cleverly shot programs of the modern era, came to a close last night. When we’re talking about this show in ten or twenty years, it is my hope that we remember this gem as a quirky program, but also a tragic one.

We knew Barry was going to die (we predicted it HERE). We have to realize that Barry, at this point, had it coming.

It was likely when he had his meltdown at the dinner table with Gene towards the beginning of last season, a scary moment when a lot of us realized that he was indeed the villain, not the hero.

Think about it. At any point during this show, Barry could have moved on. Sally even gave him one last chance to turn himself in, and he refused it, in the name of the Lord of all things.

Yes, he loved his son, but he wasn’t prepared to do the right thing to preserve his safety.

And after pushing the other villain of the show in Gene too far, he took a bullet to the head.

The time jump demonstrates that he was the problem. Sally finds some success in theater. John appears to have turned out to be a decent kid. Barry was the problem.

Who would have thought that Fuchs of all people would have figured this entire thing out better than anyone?

And history will remember Barry as a hero because of that move.

That’s a very kind way to end a tragedy.

Bill Hader deserves all of the awards.

These will likely be comedy awards.

But Barry, in all of its brilliance, should be remembered as a tragedy with a sharp sense of humor.
