Atlanta Audience Reviews

Diagonaldi Very well executed
BootDigest Such a frustrating disappointment
GazerRise Fantastic!
StyleSk8r At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
jennyp-00739 Kept seeing previews of this show while I watched something mindless like Real Housewives or similar. Finally put it on and didn't realize it was a whole season in. Currently binge watching and am almost through the first one....This show is amazing. I saw it listed as comedy, which it's not in the conventional sense. More of a spot on social commentary. Like a wink and nod to real situations. Most shows have a learning curve where the actors take a few episodes of getting into character. Pilots are normally awful. Not the case with this one. Everyone is so natural where you believe it from the get go. It just keeps getting better with each episode. The rating on the tv says MA on every episodes, but I have yet to see anything super offensive compared to half the stuff on tv.
morganshs There is a hilarious moment in the 2nd episode, season 2 (I think) where Paper Boi calls for a Lyft car to take him home from his studio. He and the driver talk nicely and the driver expresses a strong liking for Paper's Boi's music. Suddenly the driver turns around and points a gun at his passenger demanding everything he has. But the driver is so sweet and apologetic and keeps explaining how he needs the money and is so sorry to do this. He goes on and on so nicely you really feel sorry for him. But that is the city of Atlanta. Courtesy is number one, combined with a sweetness that is irresistible. I've lived here all my life and while there is plenty of violence for sure, most people are darlings, even when they are ripping you off.
sirhoon Not so much a laugh out loud show, more of an intelligent social commentary made with a lot of humour. Having said that though, I accidentally ingested something green and edible and the B.A.N episode (aka Donaghue) was one of the funniest things that I have ever seen it my life. I'm still not sure what happened.100% recommended. Brilliant TV.
screechy_jim It started off brilliantly and I really enjoyed the first 3 episodes though they are a little short for my liking. The stories don't really get fleshed out enough in thirty minutes can sometimes be a little thin, but I suspect there are parameters the producers have to work with and it's not to bad. Subsequent episodes really are diminishing in appeal and the brilliant creativity is gradually being replaced with a quirky framework that simply doesn't work as well. I think the initial premise for the show was very good but now that all the preconceived material has been used up, the producers are scratching around for ideas. Overall the production quality is quite good, but the story is beginning to get a little threadbare. There are some very competent actors here and do well with the script which for the most part is OK. Direction is great but again the writing needs attention. One of the main problems with the series, particularly after you've recovered from the high of the first few episodes is there is very little character or story development. Your then presented with a very static story which isn't quite as engaging and worse, sort of lets you down badly from the roller-coaster ride you were having.Its definitely not your typical 'black' sitcom/comedy/drama (I'm not really sure what category this falls under) but there is certainly a lot of cursing, swearing and black American slang to the point where I need subtitles to follow the dialogue properly, which is saying something. There is a lot of mumbling groaning and uttering going on and unless your fluent in such feature-rich vernacular, you will at the very least need the sound turned up so you can pick it all out.Eight episodes in and I think I've had my fill, but I would still advise seeing it as it is entertaining and may suit your tastes, though it just as likely may not. This is a weird one as I'm not entirely sure who its prime audience is. Clearly it has appeal for the black American community but in some ways it seems to have an different target in mind additionally. Can't quite make it out. Anyway at the very least it deserves a shot, so give it one and make up your own mind as this one is a little difficult to finger.I liked it but have had enough to move on to something else without missing what I've left behind here.
