We've been blessed a goodly number of black comedies in recent TV seasons. From Patriot, to Happy! (oh boy, you have to watch that one, but brace yourself, it's a wild ride), to Fargo, to the current darlings Barry and Killing Eve, it's a good time for people who like a little blood spilled on their laughs.
A new one for me is a TV series on Epix that's very loosely based on the Elmore Leonard novel Get Shorty. John Travolta starred in an entertaining movie taken from the book. This TV show isn't like the movie at all. For one thing, it's a lot darker. Chris O'Dowd is the star (you'll recognize his face, probably not his name)and he has a sidekick, Sean Bridgers. It takes them a few episodes to get to it, but Bridgers brings the funny. Imagine a hitman trying to discuss a script rewrite in a meeting at a Hollywood studio. He's brilliant. Ray Romano plays the Gene Hackman loser-movie-producer role.
For another thing, the crime family involved is nasty, brutish. No cartoon violence.
It took me about 40 minutes to get into the first show. Thereafter, at least through the first five shows, it keeps getting better. If you're strung-out because the first season of Barry or Killing Eve is over, you might try a hit of Get Shorty (which I've found online feeds of, so spank me.)
