Atlanta: Season 3 Reviews

  • 1d ago

    Not their best season. Its all over the place. There is a lot of self realization, but it doesn't seam like a T.V. show. It's like each episode is its own show. Its all a little to artsy for me. Not really holding true to the name "Atlanta"

    Not much else to say except that this is one of the best shows ever made. I personally enjoyed the new format of season 3.

    I think this season started off strong but then it started to scatter. There were no particularly bad episodes but for sure some weaker ones. It was a different approach and a different way of doing this show which I can appreciate them for trying. The premise of the episodes were not the greatest but the characters carry each and every scene no matter who it is. Can't wait for the final season.

    Boring and so many things in this season make no sense at all. First two seasons were vastly better. I'm only on the 4th episode but this Socks guy is annoying as all hell and it makes no sense that he's hanging out with the main characters. He was clearly a racist but they just have problem with him apparently.

    Absolute genius. This show gets better and better every season. Review bombers almost can't keep up with it's inherent quality. Glover can do no wrong. This is beyond great telelvision this is art. I could pontificate for pages about how good this is, but why? If you watch it you will know.

    I like that in Season 3 of Atlanta - they spend most of it outside of Atlanta. I also liked how weird and abstract it got. Rather than play it safe.

    I loved Atlanta seasons 1 and 2, watched it multiple times over. Season 3 was not Atlanta. Even when the core cast was on the screen, it was mostly a dull, unfunny affair. The standalone episodes tried hard to be woker than woke and Jordan Peeler than Jordan Peele, but mostly fell flat, as if written by tumblr. Donald Glover complained that his series was being compared to "Dave," and it felt like he went out of his way to leave the core audience behind and write to the critics. They seem to love it. None of my friends who watch Atlanta had anything good to say about s3.

    Rotten, in comparison with seasons 1 & 2. Occasionally good, some memorable episodes, but the final 3 episodes just bad. If the writers aren't going to take it serious why should the audience?

    Sensational series, fabulous character development and progression. Intelligent scripts delivered via accomplished actors, such a delight as its storyline is unique, delivered with a social context.

    A departure from S1 & S2, which is a bummer.

    a little different from the first two seasons where every episode was focused on Earn or those around him...but still a great season. 100% excellent.

    This is the best series to hit TV in the last decade. It forces the view to think, re-think and look where they are standing as they watch. Their position changes through the seasons and so far this year's season of Atlanta is disturbing and no-one gets off lightly. Just brilliant!

    Really disappointing season in my opinion. I fell in love with a show that used to be funny and sometimes weird, now it's just weird and sometimes purely boring. I get that the show runners wanted to give the audience the surrealist experience of being black, but I think they could've done so keeping the very basics that made the show popular in the first place - having it through the eyes of a up and coming black rapper/rising star. I've waited 4 years to meet again some of my favorite TV characters, only to see them half the time amid these non-related boring side stories.

    I'm not feeling this season of Atlanta. I don't what it is but its missing that magic of the earlier seasons.

    The 1st two seasons were good. It had it`s ups & downs regarding episodes I enjoyed. But season 3 is amazing to say the least. From episode one it is at times jaw dropping. The perspectives in the writing of season 3? BRAVO!

    Atlanta has really lost its way, once the cutting edge must see dramedy of relevant cultural issues with internal self reflection transposed onto its characters is now a passed the time hulu skip. I hope for the final season in the fall that they go back to the basics and return to Atlanta & go back to telling interesting stories with proper continuity for the original characters that made the show unforgettable.

    Season 3 of Atlanta has a serious issue. It drops a lot of the interesting character building that it started in seasons 1 and 2 and, instead adds more themes and "messages" than its writers really know what to do with. Previous seasons focused on a singular, almost fictional place, and it's characters found themselves in ridiculous situations. Through the eyes of the characters, it was easy to disassociate with the overarching messages for long enough to see the humor and severity of the overtones at the same time. It led to really uncomfortable laughs and could spark genuine conversation around serious issues. Now, the shows main characters are missing, the show is spanning several locations, and the tone is begging you to take it seriously. The problem arrives when the writers do not seem to be able to fill characters with any sort of depth, and they become vessels for the writers to speak their "truths". Most of the episodes are completely transparent messages from the writers, because the characters are flat, uninteresting, and barely existent. Each episode seems to want to act as a heavy message but is so shallow that it left me wondering: "can someone check and see if the writers are ok? Do they need help? Someone to talk to?". It does not appear profound, but appears like generalized depression. The beauty of seasons 1 and 2 was that focusing on a single place, or a seemingly single place, allowed the show to portray a mysterious aura to its characters and locations. It was easy to find the humor and importance in a plethora of interesting topics. Now, with each episode begging you to take it seriously and make you feel bad, it has nothing novel or interesting for you to see. Atlanta, if you want to make people feel guilty or bad, you need to disguise it as a story with characters that we care about. A depiction of cultural guilt with arc-less characters just looks like a cry for help, or the need for writers with a new direction. Better luck next time.
