Atlanta (tv) (season 1)

  • a ten episode progressive half-hour comedy-drama that’s expertly written. The story winds and wraps up very nicely but still leaves things open.
  • Multi-dimensional characters, including one incredible standout in Lakeith Stanfield.
  • Possibly the SMARTEST tv show I’ve ever seen.
  • The show takes some absurd twists in serious fashions and I love absurd things played completely seriously.
  • Yes, it’s ok to like Flo Rida.
  • I’ve never been to Atlanta, but I want to go now.
  • Donald Glover is quite brilliant. From writing on 30 Rock, to co-starring on Community (of which I was a fan of since the beginning [and didn’t like when his character left]) to his music career as Childish Gambino (seriously tho: Redbone is the BEST SONG OF THE LAST FIVE YEARS) and now he’s playing LANDO EFFING CALRISSIAN in the Han Solo movie. AND he seems like a cool guy too. So cheers, Donald! Hopefully you continue to win awards and to create many more pieces of smart entertainment!
  • Final Letter Grade: A+
