Season 1, Episode 10 – Atlanta wraps up its first run with a meandering whimper, not a bang, in its most yawn-inducing moment yet.
Season 1, Episode 9 – In Atlanta‘s penultimate episode this season, Earn and Van deal with some uncomfortable cultural appropriation in a rich ATL couple’s mansion.
Season 1, Episode 8 – In this week’s Atlana, Earn, Paper Boi and Darius have a fairly uneventful night at a club… until an eventful moment outside it.
Season 1, Episode 7 – Atlanta continues to get curiouser and curiouser, this time devoting an entire episode to a fake talk show, “Montague,” and subversive fake commercials that you’ll think are real for the first two rounds. Prepare yourself for an all-too-real kiddie cereal commercial.
Season 1, Episode 6 – Atlanta changes tacks for “Value,” the sixth episode of its inaugural season. Earn’s occasional girlfriend (and the constant mother of his child) Vanessa combats feelings of inadequacy with a seemingly innocuous irresponsible decision. But how innocuous will it actually prove to be?
Season 1, Episode 5 – Al lets his emotions get the best of him in a celebrity basketball game, Earn networks, and Darius accidentally stirs up trouble at a shooting range. Oh, and Justin Bieber is black.
Season 1, Episode 4 – Earn’s money woes continue, while Al struggles with a YouTube troll. Yawning ensues. With “The Streisand Effect,” the fourth episode of its inaugural season, Atlanta has just hit what we can only hope is its nadir.
Season 1, Episode 3 – In this week’s episode of “Atlanta,” Earn’s money struggles continue, in lock-step with his Vanessa struggles.
Season 1, Episodes 1-2 – In the debut episodes of Donald Glover’s low-key homegrown dramedy Atlanta, self-acknowledged loser Earn Marks tries to convince his up-and-coming scene rapper cousin, Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles, to let Earn manage him.
