  • Atlanta: Season 1/ Episode 10 "The Jacket" [Season Finale] – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview The first season ends without much in the way of grand gestures or storyline and in many ways that is what seems appropriate. Review (with Spoilers) It is kind of weird for a season finale to not end on a cliffhanger, wrap up major stories, or be anything but just another episode. Admittedly, in the past that would kind of upset me but what show really makes good cliffhangers anymore? Ones which excite you more than make you rage on an unanswered question that comes within the last 2 minutes? So, with that, I’m glad Atlanta didn’t pull something out of the bag and kept things rather chill in the last episode. With that said, let’s talk about “The Jacket.” Community Rating: 60.69% (1)

  • Atlanta: Season 1/ Episode 9 "Juneteenth" – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview Van returns and she takes Earn to a fancy party. A fancy party featuring rich Black people who could provide her some kind of opportunity. Here is hoping she gets one cause bills need to be paid. Review (with Spoilers) I often have, well at least as of late, mixed feelings about this show. I love the characters, but these guest stars sometimes are so weird that they seem more like a distraction than characters who either further the plot or add more color to the show. Making it where when the dial is turned down and they aren’t over the top, like in this episode, to a point, it is a welcome change. For it is like, sometimes, Donald Glover and company want you to full on experience some of the weird characters they’ve experienced in their lives without filtering or adapting them to fit the storyline of…

  • Atlanta: Season 1/ Episode 1 "The Big Bang" [Series Premiere]- Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview It’s the birth of a new series and strangely, it’s a dramedy. Which is surprising in a good way for it makes it feel like Atlanta is bridging the gap between the comedy star Donald Glover is known for and the rare, non-soap opera styled depiction of not only Black people but issues which are part of the culture. Trigger Warning(s): Gun Violence Community Rating: 60.68% (1)

  • Atlanta: Season 1/ Episode 2 "Streets on Lock" – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview Episode 2 arguably isn’t about pushing the story forward or featuring its stars. It is more so about establishing the people the stars live around and their environment. For whether it is normal people who get arrested for just drinking on their porch, trans folk, or kids acting out what they hear on rap songs, that is Glover’s Atlanta. Trigger Warning(s): Police Brutality | Transphobia Community Rating: 0.00% (0) - No Community Ratings Submitted.

  • Atlanta: Season 1/ Episode 3 “Go For Broke” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview “Go For Broke” arguably is about fighting becoming broke. For in the pursuit of dreams and all your ambition, there are bills to pay, children to feed and, in Earn’s case, a woman to try to not lose the respect of. Though, little by little, even if she loves him, his inability to compromise for at least the sake of their daughter is getting to her. Community Rating: 60.68% (1)

  • Atlanta: Season 1/ Episode 4 "The Streisand Effect" – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

    Overview Al, as has been seen, is a sensitive soul, a bit thin-skinned, but until this episode, we didn’t know how bad it was. Some online semi-famous person gets under his skin to the point he has to confront him. As that happens Darius and Earn go out because Earn needs some kind of money to show Van he can contribute to his daughter’s upbringing. Even if he has to pawn his phone to do so.
