Atlanta: Robbin' Season Reviews

May 11, 2018
In some scenes... the weight of community ties seems suffocating; in others, it's evident that none of the characters would survive without one another. The distance between those two points is what Atlanta mines, and what resonates most powerfully.

The show boldly speaks to American culture's impulse to extract all that is cool or profitable from blackness while discarding actual black people.

Is Atlanta the best comedy on TV? Or the best drama? The best family saga about the impossibility of either fatherhood or son-hood? The funniest crime story? The most depressive stoner romp?

Season two continues the meander into hilarity.

Atlanta is inarguably one of the best, most innovative shows currently being made.

Only, Glover and company don't seem much interested in bringing Earn to the end of his journey. Or explaining what that journey looks like. Or if there even is a way out of it. (There isn't.)

If Atlanta were a book, not only would it not be a novel, but it might not even be a book of short stories. It would be a book of poems, sketches, verses written in different colors of ink.

Robbin' Season may be the coldest time of year, but Atlanta still has a heat all its own.

The second season is a worthy follow-up to the first, a tighter story with fewer standalone episodes, which is neither good nor bad, just a different and interesting path.

Be assured there's still nothing else like it -- on FX or anywhere else.

It's an excellent and deceptively precise show about the human condition.

[It] settles upon you like an uneasy dream: You don't always know quite how you got there, or how you left, but what you saw is as indelible as the chubby, grinning alligator that struts out a front door into the sunlight in an early episode.

Few other shows are so capably transporting -- not to a time or a city but a way of being, a way of living, that is only now being translated to screen.
February 28, 2018
No matter how easy it seems to amble along, what Glover is doing here is really hard. Loving it, though, is really easy.

Not all of the scenes are primarily story-driven or even essential to forward momentum as much as they are snapshots, artistic sketches that, combined over the course of multiple episodes, create a narrative.

"Robbin' Season" is so good, it's almost criminal.

Atlanta is still good and still roughshod, but there's a tougher texture to this season.

We're lucky to be watching a shooting star in real time.

Glover has conceptualized "Atlanta" so that he can do with it whatever he wants; he's not bound by traditional sitcom rules or limitations. That's the fun of it. It's his ride, and where he goes is anyone's guess. But it will be worth the trip.

Atlanta returns - with a tougher hide and a wide smile full of razor-sharp teeth.
February 16, 2018
The ecstatic pleasure of Atlanta is how it grounds nigh-Lynchian strangeness in addictive specificity: stylish visuals, fully realized characters, a feeling for the modern African American experience.

Few shows are as good at building to dizzying heights of weirdness without clueing you in that anything out of the ordinary is happening.
