Atlanta feels like a protest more than a cable sitcom. To depict such realistic black lives on television is like taking a knee during the national anthem.
It's a pleasure to see [Donald] Glover's brash, off-kilter genius is on full display.

It's an essential portrait of ordinary black life, a grounded account of underground hip-hop fame, a no-nonsense love letter to Glover's hometown, a thorny relationship drama, and a fantastically funny comedy.
