American rap is not the issue here
27 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

''Atlanta'' is a weird show! And you read this from a guy who has seen lot of weird things in films and television. I started this show because I needed a smart comedy and somebody recommended me this show. I'm not into the American black hip hop scene so I wasn't expecting to really get into this show. And yeah the first five episodes were really mediocre for me. But then after episode six and after it became better and better and better... until I ended up loving it. It's not really the theme of this series that gets you. It's the adorable characters (especially the protagonist with an excellent Danny Glover in the role) and the social messages that this series gives without being boring or predictable. In a length of 10 episodes it talks about music as a way of expression, about the social problems that black people may come across even in 2017's America but also bout the problems that anyone can face in his life like acceptance and the need for love and acknowledgement. And all of this with a smart bitter-sweet humor that makes you want for more. If you get over the first five episodes which are not something really special then you will have a really good time with this show. I can't wait for the next season!
