This is Atlanta writ large: giving you something to laugh about, then promptly reminding you what you needed respite from in the first place.

I've just been sitting in front of my TV blinking since last Tuesday night. Atlanta has proven again that it's willing to take an unflinching look at media and the construction of "reality."

Perhaps the truest expression of what Glover and the writers believe comes through when Paper Boi admits that he's "afraid" to speak about issues like these...The piece is not just laugh-out-loud funny, but brings up questions about race and gender.

"B.A.N." proved Atlanta is one of the smartest and most daring shows on television.

Atlanta continued its reign as the most random yet thought-provoking show on television with an episode that featured fake commercials and a fictional news show.

In the show's most overtly political episode yet, Donald Glover-who wrote and directed it-makes clear his intention to wrestle openly with race, black masculinity, and myriad other of-the-moment topics.

"B.A.N." is the creative team proving that they can make a show that only vaguely even takes place in the Atlanta universe and still make it work...more uneven than some other episodes, but one of the show's funniest installments so far.

... we should all hope for another visit to Black American News, albeit perhaps to a different show than Montague.

It's not Atlanta's job to police behavior. However, if you are trying to say something, you should say it as thoughtfully as you can.

The commercials alone were really solid, almost like what B.E.T. would look like in one of Rick And Morty's interdimensional cable episodes.
