Critic reviews for The Streisand Effect
I didn't expect to like the two completely divergent storylines in this episodes, but I ended up enjoying it because we got to see Darius in action. This is him in the leadership role.
The show has been less about physical growth than it has been an opportunity to explore the intersections between authenticity and ego. "The Streisand Effect," is all about facing Earn and Miles with concrete representations of these conflicts.
This take on it worked, like so many Atlanta stories have so far, because the filming and writing story feel so unique to this show and its characters, and because Darius has quickly become so much more complicated and wise than he seemed.
Ultimately, this episode is a rich character study that further familiarizes us with Atlanta's three stars, so that when the stakes begin to rise we'll be fully locked in and invested.
This is a fine episode, even if it's not as superb as the ones that came before it. Let's just hope Atlanta gives us something magical next week.
