Critic reviews for Barbershop

The title of this episode is "Barbershop," which may evoke the movies of the same title. But it's absolutely nothing like those films at all. There is no punchy give and take among the barbers and regulars, no trash talking, no political debates.

While Donald Glover is the creative genius behind Atlanta, and the series' aesthetic owes much to frequent director Hiro Murai, Brian Tyree Henry is the show's MVP.

This is just an escalating comedy of errors, but it's a hilarious one that made me laugh out loud numerous times.

Powell has the talented tempo of Chris Tucker on his best days, the hustling charisma of Bernie Mac at his scoundreliest, and the wild desperation of Charlie Day's It's Always Sunny character.

A statutory rape gag? That's a pretty tasteless way to tip off an otherwise goofy romp of an episode.

If "Helen" excelled in character development, tension, and emotional resonance, "Barbershop" proves to be a whole other thing.
