Critic reviews for Sportin' Waves
... there's that type of awkward comedic moment that "Atlanta" occasionally revels in.
Right now the show is a study of Black masculinities often in conversation with each other or with race, and what it is like to see these masculinities through the lens of love be it sexual or romantic.
"Sportin' Waves" didn't have anything quite as surprising as the premiere's fast food robbery or alligator saunter, but it's one of the series' most consistent - and consistently funny - installments yet.
"Sportin' Waves" is one of the few Atlanta episodes to belabor a single theme-humiliation-with each scene, though the corporate comedy interlude is bookended by much humbler story lines.
As for Atlanta's "Robbin' Season"? It's so good so far that I can't wait to see where it goes next.
