BBASK in the gory of darkly comic Amazon Prime series Barry Baker: Aspiring Serial Killer

Amazon doesn’t so much promote its streaming horror series on Prime the way Netflix does, so it’s pretty easy to inadvertently bypass shows like Acting Dead and Barry Baker: Aspiring Serial Killer, or BBASK for short. Well, I’m glad BBASK caught my eye when it popped up in my Prime recommendations (they know me so well). It was so easy to test it out because there’s only one season, only 3 episodes, and each is only about 25 minutes long. After laughing my way through the first episode, I stuck around for the other two, and immediately wanted more.

Blasé Barry Baker works at an office with a bunch of quirky characters, including his cousin David, who also happens to be his boss…and happens to be a dick…and a homophobic douche…and so fricking cute and funny I can’t even stand it. Especially when he simulates sexual acts.

So one night Barry orders Chinese food and scores a fortune cookie that informs him it is his destiny to be a serial killer. So he dives right in. But he sucks at it. However, his confidence begins to grow…

One intended victim – a muscle stud – becomes his basement buddy…

Even his relationship with his cousin changes…

And, he might just have a shot with his female co-worker (who needs to play Sarah Huckabee if the world lasts long enough for a movie to be made about Trump’s America)…

And perhaps even with some male co-workers…

All this new social game may be just the ego boost Barry needs to become a kick ass killer.

Just when it looks like the bodies are going to start piling up, season 2 becomes crucial!
