Critic reviews for Money Bag Shawty

Often the clarity invoked through situational comedy and drama is the entire point of the episode, and the rest of "Money Bag Shawty" illustrates as much. But the final scene feels different.

It's time for the story to get a wee warped because this is Atlanta.

Atlanta's rap game is never just about rap. It's about family...It's about upward mobility that never happens as fast as you need it to. And it's about the things that never change, even when everything's supposed to.

No matter someone's intoxicant of choice, be it weed, liquor, or money, Atlanta has no faith in people changing-not really, anyways.

It's a marvelous, seemingly endless showcase for Glover to look bewildered, aggrieved, and eventually full of despair, and sets things up perfectly for the final failed stunt.

Atlanta has always been about people struggling to move beyond the situation forced upon them by a racist, capitalist system stacked against them, but in Robbin' Season the depiction has only gotten starker.
