Critic reviews for The Jacket
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.
... it all added to a well-done look at Earn's life (and financial situation) from a very offbeat, very Atlanta viewpoint.
After a season of couch surfing, Earn is finally ready to stand on his own two feet.
