My overall impression

What was beautiful about this show was the exploration of the unique and resilient relationship between Harry and Sam. The rhythm of the relationship was so specifically used that it not only led to the humorous and quirky moments that these two friends share but the slowing down of the dialogue was charged with deep seeded issues that were not completely being confronted by the characters until their relationship unraveled towards the end. It was so enjoyable to see these two guys tackling certain philosophical issues in very funny and charming ways but I could feel that they were both skating on the surface of a deeper loneliness and seeing them deal with it and try to open up to each other about it was so engaging. I have experienced that unspoken forgiveness that you share with a friend: it’s complex, it may not seem totally balanced, but there is a deeper level of care that you have for each other that transcends whatever was transgressed. That is what I was reminded of towards the end of this show and I thought the acting and the direction handled it truthfully.
