News & Interviews for Atlanta: Season 1
The show is masterful in eliciting a range of feelings - a combination of joy and horror, tension and relief - but none more so than surprise.
Atlanta, FX's finely detailed and gloriously unpredictable comedy about striving within and near Atlanta's hip-hop scene, waited until the very final moments of its first season's final episode to feature the godheads of Atlanta hip-hop: Outkast.
Donald Glover deserves this chance to make his mark as a throughly hands-on auteur who's reminiscent of another FX mainstay -- Louis C.K. They write and act out what their lives have taught them. And the differences are both striking and instructive.
The TV breakout Glover fans have been waiting for, also unlike anything else on TV.
While many shows and films about music feature similar contradictions between the glitz and the grit, in the world of Atlanta they feel like natural extensions of the city itself.
