Critic reviews for The Jacket
When Earn falls asleep satisfied, I'm nodding my head because he deserves it. The writers caught me with the unflinching aspect of the story.
The series does in 'The Jacket' what it's done all season long: find something meaningful in the smallest of details and blow them up so that everyone can see.
If there's a more fitting way for the FX comedy to end its excellent freshman outing, I can't think of it.
Atlanta is a show that's invested in visual symmetry and callbacks, and it's no doubt intentional that "The Jacket" feels so much like a bookend to the pilot. But it also feels retroactively significant, a key to understanding the show.
After a season of couch surfing, Earn is finally ready to stand on his own two feet.
