Atlanta - FX Dramedy with Community's Donald Glover

Atlanta



Anyone watching this?
Eight episodes in and I can safely say that Donald Glover is extremely talented - musician, writer, actor - not to mention that the show is solidly written, really funny, and a breath of fresh air of original comedic-dramatic TV.

you are kidding with the danny glover thing?!?
About him being extremely talented? No.
Do you think he isn't?

Other than his above-mentioned show being one of the best dramedies on TV right now, here's an article to bring you up to speed: http://www.villagevoice.com/news/donald ... ou-6430538

Oh I know how talented he is, I am a big fan of his and have been listening to his music since I downloaded his mixtape Poindexter in 2009. I am just thinking you are kidding because his name is DONALD

I corrected that.
I thought there'd be some confusion...

I love it. I like how there are episodes that he isnt in, like the one focused on his baby mama, or the BET episode.

It sort of reminds me of another great show Louie

Show is hilarious the range episode with Darius trying to hit the dog target + that messed up Montague episode with the fake commercials are my fav so far.

show had me singing "Paperboi, Paperboi all about that Paerboi" while people looking at me funny while on the ttc.

Given the date of the last reply in this thread, I'm assuming it's been a long time between seasons

Anyone watching the second season?

So far I'm finding it better than the first and that's giving the season big accolades in itself.

Totally. Very much enjoying the depth of S2 writing, especially the move beyond Earn's character.

Gotta admit, reading up helped me with some of the cultural references:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/06/arts ... ences.html

Two things I'm unclear of: (SPOILERS)

- The Ostrich Egg (is this just meant to be weird, or does it refer to something)
- The very end - That Darius was able to leave in the Uhaul and not be detained as a suspect

So good!
Never knew Glover played Perkins until half-way through.

Seems there are all sorts of possibilities with the Ostrich egg.
Apparently, the was/is an Ostrich farm not too far from Neverland.
Thematically, it really works with the whole exploration of cruel fatherhood - the cracking of the shell, the decadence of an egg that one person can't possibly consume.
Man - I totally forgot about Sammy Sosa. Creepy.
