HBO's 'Barry' Can Help You Get Over The 'Game Of Thrones' Blues

I was getting worried about HBO. After this season of 'Game of Thrones' is finished, I thought there would be no other show on the network that would make me resubscribe.

That thought went away when I finally saw an episode of "Barry."

I knew nothing about the show when I randomly stumbled across it. After watching the first season and much of the second season I can safely say that HBO has another gem on their hands, and I will be coming back for more HBO once "Game Of Thrones" finishes its run.

One thing I like a lot about the show is the premise.

In short, the show tells the story of a hit-man named Barry (Bill Hader) who wants to become an actor. On the journey of his now double life, so many interesting characters pop up along the way. Barry has to deal with the criminal underworld alongside his new acting companions. On paper, these two communities should be very different from each other. The show proves, however, that the world of acting and killing are very similar to one another.

"Barry" is full of surprises from the pilot episode, and continues to get better as each new character is introduced and storylines are fleshed out.

As of right now, my favorite episode is the one called "Ronny/Lilly." This episode premiered in the same weekend as "Avengers: Endgame" and GOT's "The Battle Of Winterfell" episode. "Endgame" was a great watch, but the dazzle was something that I expected. "The Battle of Winterfell" was a great episode, but it left me feeling underwhelmed.

"Ronny/Lilly," meanwhile, exceeded my expectations and had me impressed for every second of the episode. That is saying something as "Barry" is only in its second season.

HBO has a problem in the next year. "Game of Thrones" has become a household name in this last decade. People who do not watch the show are seen as "out of the loop" in the realm of television. With this season being the last, HBO has a great void to fill when it finally finishes.

However, "Barry" gives me hope that there will be even more great television coming from HBO. "Chernobyl" is another upcoming show that piques my interest as well. It seems as though HBO has won me over yet again.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
