Jun 30, 2022
It’s nice to see that even in the pursuit of television immortality, Glover hasn’t lost sight of the value of a solid gag.

Just when you think you’re watching a whimsical stoner-comedy, it grabs you like a dead hand reaching up from a haunted lake, and reminds you of the absurdist horror lurking beneath.

It’s a bold move to start the new season of your Emmy award-winning drama without any of the main characters, but Donald and Stephen Glover are into making art not chasing ratings.

Atlanta still boasts the best core quartet currently on television. It's still the best among at almost everything it does, in fact, including sliding onto Glover's always busy resume.

The latest season of Donald Glover’s series is a sardonic exploration of Black commercial success as oppression.

Season 3 has found the show’s core cast enjoying more success than ever. As the installment’s unorthodox storytelling exemplifies, fame makes the Black experience that much more confounding.

Atlanta’s glorious weirdness, its dive into the surreal, is what makes the show nimble and wonderfully written. It covers a wide spectrum of Blackness, all while being relatable.

Although it isn't set in Atlanta (Amsterdam gets the honors), this season is very Atlanta. Keenly insightful, brutally honest and often painfully accurate.

It would take a potent, sinister spell for Atlanta not to return as itself. In this season, even when the series aims for discomfort, a blatant disregard to be defined except on its own terms makes for a knowing calm.

This oddball series never lets up in excitement or eccentricities. Even as Atlanta expands its range to Europe, its good to be back in the Hollywood of the South.
Mar 30, 2022
Despite the tonal shifts and wild swings, Atlanta is still confident that viewers will come along for the ride, even after so many years away. Perhaps it’s a good bet...

It’s sinister, it’s absurd, and it’s funny, and the reality of Atlanta contorts to underline that
Mar 29, 2022
For the third and penultimate season of Atlanta, everyone returns to characters they know well for a brilliant season that upends expectations beyond what we already have come to associate with this series.

“Atlanta” proves you can take a break, see most of your cast break out into wider stardom, and still return strong as ever.

Put your phone down for a second and look out the window. You’re going to get there soon enough. It’s just that there’s some stuff the show would like you to notice on the way first.
Mar 25, 2022
Good TV shows are consistent, but the great ones know how to change and grow with their characters and with the times. Atlanta has always been one of the greats.

Many shows try to break rules, but few do so as gracefully as Atlanta.
Mar 25, 2022
It may have taken four years for Atlanta to come back, but it’s lost none of its daring in the interim.
Mar 24, 2022
What Atlanta captures is being Black in America is to be cast in an ongoing horror comedy — the only genre that can make sense of the experience.
