You gotta watch season 3 of Atlanta!  The first two seasons (which came out like 5-7 years ago) were middling and average TV, but the season premiere of season 3 is unbelievable television.  Watch it!  Worth the 5 year hiatus.  You don't need to have seen seasons 1 & 2, to watch episode 301, it's a one-off episode.

Extremely tight editing, clever writing, brilliant acting, and dare I say, mildly anti-woke?  Love for someone on next-ep to weigh in.

...that line in the van where they all know what each other are thinking is amazing...."sweet release"... lol  I burst out laughing, while being horrified, so many emotions all at once.  The line, "Why did nobody stop us?" is so poignant, I'll remember it forever.

S3 ep 1, utterly magnificent.

What a story.

WHAT A STORY.

Was anxious they may have lost their touch in the 4 years between drinks but this telly show is Very Much Back In Business.

TL/DR;[email protected]

S1 and 2 had quite a bit of dicking around interspersed with some killer episodes. I'll just leave this here...

Amazing right?  Wow!  What a story, indeed.  I'd nominate it for best episode Drama at the Emmy's.  Thanks for weighing in.

Re: Atlanta [Dramedy]

Been a wildly varying season quality-wise but ep 6 was very much back in business with the sharp societal theatre of the absurd angle.

The "wypipo are lame and untrustworthy" agenda of some of the episodes must be fun for them to make but just reeks of "slowly you become everything you hate".
