Critic reviews for Juneteenth

What is this show trying to do to me? Between the come-to-Jesus moments and the not-today-Satan situations, I almost got whiplash.

Vanessa and Earn's relationship is a dynamic that's informed much of the first season of Atlanta, but it's never been highlighted to the extent it is in this week's episode, "Juneteenth."

"Juneteenth" is another remarkable half-hour of TV in a debut season full of them. It's one of the purely funniest episodes of Atlanta so far.

Maybe Van saw that party for what it was? Maybe she appreciated Earn for being real? Maybe she's even a little proud of him? That'd be a big step for them, but it doesn't change the fact that she's still looking for work.

... Atlanta is probably best enjoyed as if it's a loosely connected anthology, because at this point it's impossible to know how much of what happens is even objectively real, let alone how important it is to the broader story.
