      umm...there's been a definite format/plot
Apr 06th 2018
177
      How did you feel about season one's "B.A.N" episode?
Apr 06th 2018
212
           it was great. they made points and kept the funny
Apr 06th 2018
214
      ^ yea this is what I was getting at above.
Apr 06th 2018
184
           there isnt another horror based episode of Atlanta
Apr 06th 2018
188
                I agree that it was the most "out there" episode yet.
Apr 06th 2018
189
                     usually more comic relief in the darker moments
Apr 06th 2018
192
                          Haha yea I laughed at all these parts.
Apr 06th 2018
197
                               as soon as Darius walked in and dude came from the shadows
Apr 06th 2018
202
                                    Haha right !! That's what I referenced in another post about ...
Apr 06th 2018

           LOL

Yeah, it works as just a short piece of weird horror
Apr 06th 2018

Apr 06th 2018
211
Donald was Teddy....right?
Apr 06th 2018

Yep. Lock for an Emmy IMO.
Apr 06th 2018
206
It's Robbin' Season: Darius of his time (and more);
Apr 06th 2018

Teddy Perkins might be the best episode of the series so far.

Get Out: The Michael Jackson Story....directed by David Lynch.
Apr 07th 2018
223
IDK yall. Was that a Get Out Tribute or a Jacking of Get Out?
Apr 07th 2018
228
I mean you're entitled to your opinion, but some of this is flawed.
Apr 07th 2018
233
Your right.
Apr 07th 2018
235
The reason I keep saying "I got nothing"
Apr 09th 2018
259
right. the fact that Buddy doesn't know if Teddy was black...
Apr 07th 2018
237
      Again. I said it was a minor gripe because I figured he was.
Apr 08th 2018
243
Like I said earlier. DG could have an ep about lotion
Apr 07th 2018
236
i bet that lotion ep would be dope tho
Apr 07th 2018
238
      sure would lol
Apr 07th 2018
241
      right!? got me wishing they do one lol
Apr 08th 2018

DG giving yall VIGNETTES
Apr 07th 2018
230
The criticism of Teddy Perkins is very odd.
Apr 07th 2018
234
My complaint is people reading fake deepness into it.
Apr 08th 2018
242
DG could shoot someone on Peach Street and not lose fans
Apr 09th 2018
255
nothing odd about it
Apr 08th 2018
244
I dont mind thinking
Apr 08th 2018
245
Can I push back on that.

I think Teddy was Benny's dad
Apr 08th 2018

Teddy/Benny Episode.
Apr 08th 2018
254
Absolutely.
Apr 09th 2018
270
art has this odd relationship with entertainment though
Apr 12th 2018
291
based on the interview, the whole season will be like this. just vignett...
Apr 09th 2018
256
Last season was very much like that too.
Apr 09th 2018
258
      I thought they weren't going to circle back to the puppies
Apr 09th 2018
261
i didnt like this episode much honestly
Apr 09th 2018
264
and UNNECESSARY...
Apr 09th 2018
266
      damn.. I almost believe your show theory
Apr 11th 2018
281
           Maybe Darius didn't call the cops...
Apr 11th 2018
283
I feel like DG's delayed laugh in the car was him laughing at viewers
Apr 09th 2018
265
You could see this coming with the long New Yorker Profile.
Apr 09th 2018
267
This:
Apr 10th 2018
273
I mean, dude HAS been successful at
Apr 11th 2018
288
that cut away to Paperboy, Earn and Darius in the car
Apr 11th 2018
282
      I also think the delayed laugh was because DG is playing Sammy Sosa
Apr 11th 2018
284

3rd trash episode in a row, lol@folks trying act like it’s so “deep...
Apr 10th 2018
272
‘Deep’ is a generic and useless attribute of story
Apr 10th 2018
274
alternate view: its great because it sparking all this dialog
Apr 10th 2018
275
      My criticism here is part of that dialog. We don’t have opposing views
Apr 10th 2018
276
           that wasn't *at* YOU...
Apr 10th 2018
277
                my bad.
Apr 10th 2018
280
man, Bibby ep was funny as shit
Apr 10th 2018
278
Glad he got to take that risk, but I was bored by it.
Apr 10th 2018
279
yep
Apr 12th 2018
292
just felt like a vanity project to me
Apr 12th 2018
293
      I agree with all of you.

Apr 12th 2018

      knock it out the park? more like
Apr 13th 2018
308
Ooh this ep is gonna have ashy Twitter tight lmao
Apr 12th 2018
297
Drake's Mexican?
Apr 13th 2018
298
"From the glorious days of pick-up soccer." Darius for the win.
Apr 13th 2018
299
He was the saving grace of the episode....
Apr 13th 2018
300
I feel like Donald Glover has issues with black women
Apr 13th 2018
301
that scene with the white girl was a bit too on the nose
Apr 13th 2018
303
It hink the critique is unfair but i get some of your points
Apr 13th 2018
305
Except the dude apologized to Van's friend at the end
Apr 13th 2018
314
or he was just being nice because he came into the convo late
Apr 13th 2018
322
      I took that to mean
Apr 13th 2018
332
"back then they didnt want me. now im hot they all on me"
Apr 13th 2018
315
      lotta dudes like Earn use a few interactions to justify their decision
Apr 13th 2018
323
they mailed this one in.
Apr 13th 2018
302
Robbed me of 30 minutes of my time.
Apr 13th 2018
304
I thought it was pretty good. But what happened to the comedy?
Apr 13th 2018
306
I've been saying that too.
Apr 16th 2018
362
First episode that didn't do it for me. Also white chick
Apr 13th 2018
307
that was part of the point
Apr 13th 2018
309
but... that's a perfect representation of a white girl in that scenario
Apr 13th 2018
310
why they have Vann looking weak?
Apr 13th 2018
311
cause she was weak in that moment. she tryna stunt on Earn.
Apr 13th 2018
312
yup. I said earlier that Van is basically a female Earn
Apr 13th 2018
316
her petty stunting plans got foiled
Apr 13th 2018
313
      my boy saw the first 3 eps early and predicted it would be a bad season
Apr 13th 2018
317
Just curious but are the writers different this season?
Apr 13th 2018
318
I don't think any other writer got credits last season.
Apr 13th 2018
319
      gotcha...thx...this part prompted my question
Apr 13th 2018
320
           DG got too many things on his plate?
Apr 13th 2018
321
                I admittedly don't know a whole lot about dude or his
Apr 13th 2018
324
                     DG is starring in the new Solo - Star War movie
Apr 13th 2018
325
                     the writing doesn't feel that different to me
Apr 13th 2018
328
                          Wow, I 100 percent agree with this.
Apr 13th 2018
342
                     What? I think the opposite. This season is a little too "real black expe...
Apr 13th 2018
327
                          Question...at any point during that ep, did Van bring up
Apr 13th 2018
329
                               We didn't see her bring it up
Apr 13th 2018
331
                               thought so....i'll just stop right there lol
Apr 13th 2018
333
                               no. he was just thirsty and had no game.
Apr 13th 2018
335
                               asking a chic (u don't know) if she needs tp is....thirsty
Apr 13th 2018
337
                               i've seen worse.
Apr 13th 2018
340
                               I def thought it was going in that direction
Apr 13th 2018
338
                               Ya'll see the other dude behind Van and the high friend?
Apr 13th 2018
352
                                    Yes!
Apr 13th 2018
354
smh at that episode
Apr 13th 2018
326
Anyone else think Darius was a hallucination at first?
Apr 13th 2018
330
I swear this was a scene in another movie or tv show...
Apr 13th 2018
334
I almost want to watch it again with ESP subtitles on
Apr 13th 2018
339
      thought he said Drake was on a plane
Apr 13th 2018
341
           Avion is spanish for plane lol
Apr 13th 2018
343
           I saw the hand movement for lift off
Apr 13th 2018
346
           Yeah, that was all I got
Apr 13th 2018
345
i was hoping it was a hallucination lol.
Apr 13th 2018
336
100%
Apr 13th 2018
355
I don't think you can have a white baby mama and go in too hard
Apr 13th 2018
344
ain't it usually the dudes without Black women who go in the hardest?
Apr 13th 2018
347
i dont think he went in at all
Apr 13th 2018
348
      you sir, sound like a man who dates white women
Apr 13th 2018
349
           i just dont only date black women.
Apr 13th 2018
350
           Nah, I agree with him. She was mainly a cartoon
Apr 13th 2018
351
                I disagree, that was a direct shot at Black women
Apr 13th 2018
353
                RE: I disagree, that was a direct shot at Black women
Apr 13th 2018

                     lol, ok

                Nooooo Zazie!!!!!
Apr 13th 2018

Man the Champagne Papi episode was trash.
Apr 14th 2018

It's difficult to tell a compelling story in comedy/Drama
Apr 15th 2018
360
Darius's Simulation Theory
Apr 15th 2018

A whole episode to set up a punchline. "Drake is Mexican"

Im late as fuck to the party on this one but....
Apr 19th 2018

Paperboy getting robbed by his cousin
Apr 20th 2018
367
al also got robbed by his connect
Apr 20th 2018
376
RIP Alfred. Hello Paperboi.
Apr 20th 2018
368
^^^^My takeaway.
Apr 20th 2018
369
Yup
Apr 20th 2018
383
I took the opposite from it. Him taking that picture was him rejecting
Apr 20th 2018
396
      I can see that, but this is also the first time we've seen him
Apr 20th 2018
397
           Agree with both of you. Good points.
Apr 22nd 2018
413
Yeah. I like this
Apr 21st 2018
410
might be the most lazily written episode so far.
Apr 20th 2018
370
Al getting mad at that model for snapping his picture
Apr 20th 2018
371
      mad enough to skip a ride home?
Apr 20th 2018
372
           On top of that, theory is that this weeks episode
Apr 20th 2018
373
           oh i didnt even pick up on that. makes more sense.
Apr 20th 2018
374
           ahh, ok that makes sense
Apr 20th 2018
378
           Yeah the episode’s writer confirmed that this was exactly the case
Apr 20th 2018
394
           It made enough sense why he'd want to get out of there
Apr 20th 2018
384
           ole girl was annoying as shit
Apr 20th 2018
391
           paperboi is always aggy. increasingly so throughout the season
Apr 20th 2018
388
           RE: mad enough to skip a ride home?
Apr 20th 2018
398
"Woods" sucked.
Apr 20th 2018

I liked this more than Teddy's episode
Apr 20th 2018
379

i'm not sure forest bum was entirely real
Apr 20th 2018
377
Pretty sure old dude wasn't real. For a few reasons
Apr 20th 2018
386
Yeah, I assumed he wasn't real
Apr 20th 2018
392
Who else got the color bars during the climax
Apr 20th 2018
380
I swear the power could go out during this show and folks would think

Lol
Apr 20th 2018

I loved last night's episode

Oh, Paperboi is suffering from Depression

Who Paperboi WANTS as fan VS the fans that appreciate him...

Dope analysis. What’s interesting is the Black fans always say slick s...

He just doesn't seem like he wants fans to me.
Apr 20th 2018
404
He wants fans
Apr 21st 2018
409
Yea this is an interesting perspective.
Apr 22nd 2018
414
i felt like this whole ep was a dream
Apr 20th 2018
403
Ehh, it DID start with him sleeping and have a sudden time
Apr 20th 2018
405
Darius said he learned how to make pasta in a dream
Apr 20th 2018
406
      I agree and I feel like this whole season has kinda felt like that.
Apr 22nd 2018
415
Yup.
Apr 21st 2018
408
      pasta in the foot or foot in the pasta?
Apr 23rd 2018

One of my fav episodes. Watching PB deal with his
Apr 21st 2018
411
Yeah, i'm a fan of this one
Apr 22nd 2018
417
PB is my favorite character..
Apr 23rd 2018
423
PB's face when he's realizing the deal with the youngsters
Apr 21st 2018
412
He is tremendous.
Apr 22nd 2018
416
just heard the NPR interview with BTH
Apr 22nd 2018
418
this season is a blend of hits and misses
Apr 23rd 2018
422
That last episode wraps back around to the Benny episode and others
Apr 24th 2018
424
      ah i never made the benny connection there
Apr 24th 2018
425
We ever talk about how beautifully shot this series is?
Apr 24th 2018
426
Yes!!! The cinematography is dope
Apr 24th 2018
427
GORGEOUS. makes it so rewatchable
Apr 25th 2018
429
Specifically Hiro Murai
Apr 25th 2018
430
Anyone else notice that Earn and Van are never shown with their child...
Apr 25th 2018
428
Lodi was mentioned in both the major Van episodes
Apr 26th 2018
431
shade much?
Apr 26th 2018
432
      how you ask a question and get mad at an answer?
Apr 26th 2018

goddamn Earn took a lot of Ls tonight
Apr 26th 2018

Apr 28th 2018
459
"I just keep losing. I mean, some people just supposed to lose?"
Apr 27th 2018
443
Probably my favorite ep of the season so far
Apr 26th 2018
437
It’s so much better when they are all together.
Apr 26th 2018
439
      Yup!
Apr 27th 2018
441
First time this season I laughed like shit
Apr 27th 2018
440
Came in with that Jermaine O'Neal
Apr 27th 2018
446
MAN..I was behind...saw it last night...but TRACY....OMG
May 03rd 2018
496
I was wondering when Al was going to have this conversation
Apr 27th 2018
444
As soon as they showed up at that apartment I knew it was happening
Apr 27th 2018
445
      It's not even the fact that they were in the apt that got Al hot...
Apr 27th 2018
448
           I have to re-watch. I was distracted
Apr 27th 2018
451
           Yeah (and you're right, Earn's homeless)
Apr 27th 2018
457
                *record scratch*
Apr 30th 2018
482
                the girl didn't spill the drink, she DUMPED the drink on Al
May 04th 2018
508
HOLY SHIT
Apr 27th 2018

I thought bol was going to blow Earn's brains out Pulp Fiction
Apr 27th 2018
449
yup, white folks never knew about the Black parties and vice versa
Apr 27th 2018
452
Laffy Taffy (12 years ago!)
Apr 27th 2018
450
those are the funniest, most painful kinds of fights
Apr 27th 2018
453
It was basically an extended brutal replay of the Michael Vick race
Apr 27th 2018
454
good call. at least the Vick race was based on a strategy
Apr 27th 2018
455
      lmao. same calculus as the vick race.
Apr 27th 2018
456
           i didn't say it was a good strategy haha
Apr 28th 2018
458
                i thought tracy was gonna hit him w/ the Pedigree for a second lol
Apr 28th 2018
460
I was really rooting for cuz, man.
Apr 28th 2018
464
yo can we give Glover a trophy for how he sold that 1st punch
Apr 29th 2018
467
Nah man, you could tell throughout that ep that Tracy was game
Apr 29th 2018
469
      right? Beiber being black = more likely than Earn fucking Tracy up
Apr 29th 2018
475
      Different ep..but don't forget abou the credit card/store ep
May 03rd 2018
497
man, I almost felt bad for Earn. He thinks Tracy is why he was fired
Apr 30th 2018
481
How she get a footprint on the ceiling
Apr 28th 2018
461
IN regards to the laptop
Apr 28th 2018
462
      not to mention that he's not that paid
Apr 28th 2018
463
           I bet that laptop has paperboy album on it
Apr 28th 2018
465
                ^^^^ and Vanns sexy nekkid pics
Apr 30th 2018
477
The roller coaster ride continues
Apr 29th 2018

there's only two episodes left
Apr 29th 2018

Apr 29th 2018
473
Culmination of the lessons Al learned in the last episode
Apr 29th 2018
470
I totally forgot about the club episode from last year....
Apr 29th 2018

      I wouldn't go this far:
Apr 29th 2018
472
      RE: I totally forgot about the club episode from last year....
Apr 29th 2018
474
           What's great is that you see CC doing the things Earn set up for PB
Apr 29th 2018
476
                or when CC doesn’t give PB the attention he thinks he deserves
Apr 30th 2018
478
                exactly
Apr 30th 2018
479
                Good point
Apr 30th 2018
480
                Is Al depressed
May 03rd 2018
498
                True. No way CC did Pajama Jam for free though
Apr 30th 2018
488
                word. al fucked up a couple times. earlier in the season, earn asked
Apr 30th 2018
490
deleted scene
Apr 30th 2018
483
Ha. That was amazing.
Apr 30th 2018
484
damn, they shoulda kept that in
Apr 30th 2018
485
That was highly enjoyable.
Apr 30th 2018
486
yoooo.... why did they delete it???
Apr 30th 2018
487
My guess is $$$$$
May 03rd 2018

FUBU aka the 90s Babies PTSD episode
May 03rd 2018
501
I guessed it was like '99 due to the "Aquemini" poster
May 04th 2018
502
yeah i think anywhere from like 98-01
May 04th 2018
504
pretty sure that girl in class was on meds
May 04th 2018
503
i highly doubt that...she was a 'problems at home' kid
May 04th 2018
510
      could be both
May 04th 2018
515
Aquemini had already come out, so it's at least 98
May 04th 2018
506
that was a really legit episode

Me, sometimes: If only I could go back to high school knowing

white kids don't give a shit about clothes or looking fresh
May 04th 2018

At mostly white schools, they absolutely do

513
      not true, I went to a predominantly white school

Like DUDE RIGHT THERE!

I've got a stable job, a wife, a home

As a almost life-long ATL resident, this show gets it so right...so accurate, while still remaining absurdist.

If it isn't a barber, it's somebody. Everybody has a Bibby.

In response to Reply # 3


          

my boy used to cut our hair at his house and there would be 5 dudes waiting and he would be rolling an L watching videos.

also reminds me when I thought I found a barber in Charlotte. Dude gave me his business card and then his phone was off.

Next time I linked up he said he changed his number because a girl kept blowing up his phone.

shut up already, damn

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Darius has the lines and is rightfully a fan favorite


But I think Paperboy has the potential for the most interesting character arc on the show.



Seems misunderstood at best; depressed at worst. Most of the people around him want to benefit off his success - and it looks like it weighs on him.


That unending pressure of being the golden ticket

being uncomfortable around industry folks. On some level, Paper Boi doesn't feel like he belongs in any world besides the one immediately outside of his home. And in a few episodes, he's had to find both a new connect and a new barber. I took his look at the end to be frustration with that. Not even the fact that he went through hell with Bibby, but now he needs to learn to build up an understanding with yet another new person.

Every single time he had to do just one more thing I knew it was going to end fucked up for Al. But he can't leave, he can't do anything to Bibby, it's almost like a hostage situation.

i bout lost it.

i thought Al was about to smack the shit outta Bibby's son.

think about all the crazy ass ppl you know and imagine how they children turning out as a result of nature AND nurture.

and lil man at bibby girl crib... notice he credulous af, like his momma kinda is.

"you really a magician?"

it's crazy b/c maybe his moms don't deal w/ a lotta dudes like bibby so his bullshit meter ain't fully formed yet. just like she know that ni&&a trifling... stroke game or not being alone game must be good for her to put up w/ his bs.

but don't trust that bamma to pay the water and light bill.

there's always soooo much shit going on on this show.

my barbers would always be 'up norf'. i'd be able to get the fresh cut for about 7- 8 months straight. then Reese and Nass would do a bid.

and then i'd be having to go to Ms Clara's around the corner, where she would stop in teh middle of cutting you to eat a full ass plate of greens and fried chicken from The Rialto Bar & Grill next door.

she was alright w/ clippers, but ay last time you got your hair cut there you'd leave out there smellin like a repass.

or like i had a special ass custom body oil blend of talcum powder, rubbing alcohol and gizzards.

after several years of that shit, i taught myself how to cut my hair.

that forlorn ass look that al shot bibby at the end (after the new barber asked him some paint by numbers shit). that was real af.

a true black greek tragedy. hella pathos in that scene.

They’ve been foreshadowing Paperboi changing management all season. This episode was a little parable of that. Next week I bet it’s going down for real.

The fact that Al put up with Bibby's bullshit for a whole episode was annoying and almost out of character, imo.

Ep where Al was rolling with that Asian Dude Xan and his young ass business partner.

A lot of the comedy with Paperboi is in watching him get annoyed (yet still somehow going along) with a bunch of weird ass scenarios.

In response to Reply # 39
Mon Apr-02-18 03:50 PM by bentagain

  

          

My takeaway was this episode was an illustration of the sanctity our preferred barbers hold in our lives

...yes, I'd deal with all of that to get the super fresh clean flawless fade from my barber...

my guy in one of my old neighborhoods had a 2 hour wait, mando

we'd show up, hang out, smoke, play x-box, etc...because he gave the best cuts.

also, a close personal friend of mine is Bibby all day

the line where he said..."I'm on the 85 right now, I'll be there in 15 mins"...or something to that effect

mayne, when I tell you my guy would do that to us every weekend, please believe me

we're all pre-gaming ready to go out

call the homie...where you at, we're about to leave...

...I'm coming across the bridge right now...I'll be there in 5...

45 minutes later...this fool ain't coming...let's go

Bibby is real bruh.

And I'm black, only black barbershops my whole life (minus that one time when I was like 13 and went to Greatclips), and very particular about my haircuts. My barber been cutting my hair for like 7 years now. He's a professional barber, that's what he does for a living, not all that extra shit Bibby's into. I call or text to make an appointment, show up, he cuts my hair and we chop it up, I pay the man, and see him next time.
I was done with that wait around all day on a Saturday shit when I was 16.
I feel bad for ya'll that gotta go through all that bullshit.

I can just see white executives watching this and not getting it at all and being like, "is a barber behaving like that even believable?"

Definitely had me anxious the whole time. I was like, please just cut his hair. please.

I feel like they just walked into a barbershop and grabbed a dude and was like, "you want to be in a TV show?"

51. "The barber episode brought up all sorts of PTSD"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

we all know how fucking hard it is to find a good barber and when you do find one you will go through abuse to keep that relationship going.

I have waited 2 hours for a haircut

My dude is normally late by about 30-40 minutes. "Aye, I'll be RIGHT with you bruh..."

Two short stories

-When I first started to cut my hair again after having locs for over a decade I went through a lot of barbers because no one "got it". I was trying out a new barber for a few cuts. Dude was Mexican and kind of nice but he had an annoying habit of rapping while cutting.

Imagine, a loud ass barber shop. They only played bay area rap and they played it loudly. Every single hair cut opened like this

"Take some from the top, keep the side short"

"WHAT?! YO, WHAT YOU WANT MAN?"

"Take some from the top, keep the side short"

"I CAN'T...I CAN'T HEAR YOU BRO"

"I SAID...Take some from the top, keep the side short"

"OK....HOW YOU WANT THE SIDES?"

"....whatever"

So with the loud ass shop the dude who cut my hair loved Tupac and he was a rapper himself. So while he cut my hair he kept one earbud in and rapped along with 'Pac. And while he rapped, his non cutting hand made wide and quick rap hands. The reason why I mentioned him being Mexican was that I eventually got sick of the loud music and him rapping but I had the last straw when I noticed that he was "nigga nigga nigga nigga NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA NIGGA" everything.

I kept saying "huh? oh..."

- Second story. Happened in the late 90s. Barber was late, then I waited for 45 min. The barber shop at the time was the hangout spot and the place to buy a bag. Barber in the middle of cutting me up says "aye, be right back"

When he came back his hands smelled like blunt.

Dude fucked my shit all up. Like, hairline at angle, mismatched fade.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Just too self-absorbed. Have to listen to him tell stories about fights with his girl (which was always awkward because he always sounded like he was in the wrong to me). Would be salty because I didn't come in all that often enough for his taste.

Problem is we were tight. Dude was at my 35 birthday party. Wife's birthday party. Facebook friends.

I just got tired of him (and his 30 cuts) and started going to the Dominicans. I do miss the barbarshop chatter but i am out of there in 30 minutes and get a cut for 15.

I know I am eventually going to run into my old barber and it's going to be awkwaaard.

Before I started going to the guy who cuts my hair now (for like 7 years now), I was between barbers for a minute. I went to the shop without an appointment and my normal guy was busy, and there was an open chair. So this new dude cuts my hair (did some unrequested fucking around with my eyebrows too) but he cut me a little bit too. The cut looked good though. So I went back to him again... and he cut me even worse than the first time. I was done at that point. Fast forward a few years (I was settled in with my new and current barber), and I'm with the homie at his family business in a little complex with a bunch of offices and a barbershop. We walking out and someone calls my name, I turn and ol' boy some running out the barbershop talking about "yo man i ain't seen you, where you been, here take my card, come through."
Yeah, no.
Fast foward another year or two and I walk into my barbershop -- why is homie now in the formerly vacant chair?! "Hey what's up hitokiri?!" as I walk in... lol. Bruh, you not touching my head.

if y'all regularly put up with any shit like that lol.

Back in the dinosaur days before mf's starting doing appointments I remember going to the shop early on a Sat morning and having to sit there all day but that shit is out now.

If you don't do appointments I can't fuck with you. Of course sometimes they still over book and may have to bump you back 30min or hit you with the occasional "you mind if I eat real quick bro I ain't ate all day!" which I usually allow because I figure they will cut better on a full stomach lol.

But there are way too many professional barbers out there these days.

Back to the show, yeah its trash and getting worse.

what else is in your top 5?

I know I'm old and I don't get high but to me there's not a whole funny about a 35 year-old "up and coming" rapper and his fuck-up cousin/manager in random unrealistic situations.

Atlanta comes off more like what was supposed to be a sketch comedy and they decided to try to flesh it out into a full blown show.

An entire episode about a ridiculously incompetent and unprofessional barber is just not that funny to me. It would have been hilarious as a side story in an episode about something else but about halfway through I was thinking "So is this entire episode going to be about Alfred riding around with this dude all day and not beating his ass?"

The last episode with Earn and Van at the Germanfest was dumb too.

side stories are a whole episode...

and it's also a glimpse into the dub shit Paperboy puts up with because he's a "regular person"

it's not that serious or that deep.

it's like you want Atlanta to be something it isn't when it's really just a non traditional Seinfeldish Black comedy.

In response to Reply # 79


  

          

We all know the traits.

I've had Bibby friends who can't be on time for anything.
Who tell you they're on their way when in reality they are just now getting into the shower (this one is me)

Bibby friends who can talk themselves out of any trouble.
Bibby friends who get you into stupid trouble.
Bibby friends who over promise and under deliver

Bibby the barber is just compiling all of these traits into one person and acting them out all in one day.

The show is surreal enough on its own and Darius just seems to be that one guy who happens to notice crazy shit happening.

Some people are like that I guess.

subtext tweets, especially if you actually read about Black art, which so much is intertwined with Black pain: literally white supremacist capitalist violence that forges blues, and jazz, and rock, and funk and pop, and rap

the convo about abusive black fathers

Darius telling him nah man that shit is wack, fuck a star if it comes from abuse.

Faux Mike saying I want this to be a museum dedicated to Mike's dad, Tiger's dad, Serena's Dad, Marvin's dad

and remember Darius wanted the piano because it LOOKED cool not cause he actually played.

and LaKeith's acting, especially when he felt/knew he was about to die, jesucristo it was so good

again, this show aint a fucn comedy show, it's just happens to be funny: at the height of rising tension "Google Sammy Sosa hat." "He look like a white man's penis." the text that read "are you dead yet." comedy. and this season is really fucn dark... and even that Bibby episode was lowkey depressing

of listening to some very intricately
nuanced bars that you'll be able to
catch new things from after multiple
listens.

I get it, white people (and ?uestlove) need black art to be deep, layered and appealing to a greater intellect so they can sit around discussing how amazing it was amongst themselves. it makes them (and Donald Glover as the creator of last night's episode) feel superior to anyone who didn't get it

meanwhile, I just watch the show to see the predicaments Paperboi, Earn and Darius wind up in without the pretentious "envelope pushing"

So anyone who liked this ep is a weirdo? And you're not, right? Your insecurities are showing, dude.

"weirdo" was a snap judgement made right after watching it and walking away disturbed and confused

a more accurate breakdown of what I meant is anyone calling that genius/brilliant may be trying too hard (or harder than I will) to take away whatever they saw in it

it was artsy, sure. but also kind of pointless (to me)

(and no I dont believe me or my sensibilities are weird)

So you used "vouch for" and that makes it better? In this context, that is the epitome of a distinction without a difference. Don't walk it back, now, hon. Your insecurities are on full display here, which is fine, but let's not pretend that's not what's going on.

I found it thoroughly entertaining. Very well done take on MJ, Prince, Get Out, the nature of fame, the nature of pain, creativity, and all that shit.

And it was funny as hell at points: the intro in the convenience store, the Owl casket, the entire drive thru sequence, and Teddy's speech about the father's wing of his museum ("The father who dropped off Emilio Estevez at the Breakfast Club...").

Great combo of humor and horror.

each episode comes at you from some weird angle, even when they supposed to be character study episodes. Donald and stephen are really treating this like the 'difficult/divisive second album'. I guess now we see what a golden globe win gets you, this creepy, commericial-free gem.


wait that was the father all bandaged up right? The brother was made up?

also there was no commercials. I was waiting to take a break and I couldn't. I was legit shook a couple times. Darius' curiosity and calm this episode was amazing. clearly not an excitable dude. he knew something was wrong immediately but he genuinely wanted to know what dudes deal was.

I think you are all in on whatever happens after that.

What nigga stays that long and endures that much weirdness for a piano?

I get it, there is no show if he bounces on some RNS but I just grew common sense out the window when watching it. Definitely felt like DG was on some “I can do a Get Out movie”

231. "w/ darius' character, i think he legit felt bad for teddy / bennie. *i* ..."
In response to Reply # 129


  

          

making mental notes on how he coulda set it off at the last minute, took a chance on ole boy missing w/ that old ass rifle, beat the shit outta him and bounced but i don't think darius' mind work like that.

even when it looked like he was about to get murked he was legit trying to lead teddy to a breakthrough.

some ppl are built like that. even those that live amidst RNS.

matter of fact, in the earlier convo w/ paperboi and he was talking about his 2 regrets philosophy.

he went back in b/c he would have regretted not getting the piano. but i think after he realized other shit was going on, he would have 'regretted' not trying to talk to / heal teddy/bennie. so from his own professed interior logic, darius HAD to stay and see it all the way through.

damn.

In response to Reply # 138


  

          

How was the messaging obscure......the shit was pretty obvious. The Teddy character basically took the audience on a tour of the message along with Darius. The point was made and the execution was very well done so I don't get this.....be careful with line stuff man. Niggas cant be afraid of a challenge.

This show clearly isnt. We all wanna laugh every week and feel like we can relate and just have some safe shit but in the long run thats not the point of art man. IF the quality is up then we up. There are things in our culture that we have never got to see explored mainstream like this and its really refreshing. I hope he keeps pushing.

pushed for our shows...raise the bar if you will..I agree totally
they just pushed the envelope a tad too far...
it wasn't THAT bad or deep...just weird (we get Darius is an oddball nigga...but he went/stayed in that crib, where damn near any an ery niggarow woulda dipped lol...I mean)


but you gotta meet people where they at

atruhead hits the nail on the head in reply#160

all that artsy stuff is cool for a select section of our demographic...which is ok if that's where the show wants to aim...
but again...they NORMALLY managed to toe the line by entertaining niggas and given the 'woke' their vitamins as well...this was just a bit too holistic

in my opinion

In response to Reply # 159


  

          

envelope pushing shouldn't be a 'whites only' lane to travel through for entertainment? I somewhat see what you're saying, but at the same time, it's too tough for me to get up in arms about this episode since ultimately tastes are all subjective and it's pointless IMO to tell someone else they should or shouldn't like something else.

But I do agree with you that I don't think the show runners for Atlanta are somehow wrong for want to go out there with last night's episode.

I would hope no one's saying that. Atlanta has always made me kind of expect the unexpected, so I don't think this episode veered from the show's "norm" if there even is a "norm" for this show, haha.

that pushed the boundaries of Hip-Hop using musicianship I was already familiar with

my biggest issue with last night is Atlanta isnt a horror show, we've gotten too used to structure of 80/20 (laughter/drama) for two seasons now. it was too much of a curveball to give us a puzzling episode that was barely humorous

dude struggling to make it in life manages his rapper cousin's blossoming career
if it's not an episode focused on him and his child's mother Van, (aside from the talk show episode and Van trying to get clean urine) every episode has been some variation of that dynamic (even the barbershop episode was about Paperboi having to get to a photoshoot, Earn is the unspoken middle man)

last night was just a weird thing Donald Glover wanted to force onto the world

In response to Reply # 165


          

There's *been* no structure. To its credit ! The 80/20 split he spoke of doesn't exist. The show has always ventured in and out of comedy and drama, and has thrown curveballs basically every episode. That's why it's great.

Last nite is no exception. Beyond the obvious stuff (MJ, Get Out) I just didn't follow the flow that well so I will need to go back to kind of pick up on everything. And now that I have the context from in here and some theories from Twitter and the like I'll be able to tie more of it together. Wasn't a bad episode at all, just a little dense.

In response to Reply # 184
Fri Apr-06-18 01:27 PM by atruhead

  

          

there isnt another episode where I left confused having to read (unconfirmed) theories about it
if that was the week to week gist, I wouldnt watch it

Get Out had layers, but the plot was pretty straightforward

last night's episode was very much a "we got millions of eyes on us, let's completely fuck their minds up" moment, which is self-indulgent and borderline narcissistic on Glover's part

I dont know how familiar you are with Curb Your Enthusiasm, but it's centered around the viewer never knowing what will happen at any given moment. but over 9 seasons Larry David built an unspoken level of trust with his audience where no one is killing a relative then committing suicide (levels of darkness Atlanta never even edged towards until yesterday)

But I disagree that they never "edged towards" other levels of darkness. For starters I think this season in general was meant to be a bit gloomier and darker than last, evidenced by the season's opening scene where a girl got shot (which I'd consider to be edging towards darkness).

Again it may be the darkest they've gotten but it's not like they haven't approached dark themes before.

That shit was gross but Darius' reactions were hilarious cause I was thinking, I'd be doing the same shit. I was almost gagging on my couch haha.


>I can't front tho, I laughed out loud when he said he didn't
>have a butler then played the messages back.

Yoooooooo that's when I knew this episode was gonna be on a different level haha. That was when it clicked like "this is going weird places."

I probably should've come to that realization during the egg part but alas.

In response to Reply # 163


  

          

That's part of the problem right there. The absurdness of what Darius was experiencing was actually funny out of context and a showrunner with less freedom or guts would have just left it at obscure silly territory but they did something really interesting with it instead and that lingers more.

Without any deeper themes. Why I'm surprised to see all this backlash.

Do people just tune into this show to laugh at Paper Boi's facial expressions/yell about how Van's ugly?

but I didn't think too hard about it at first.

The episode worked for me as a standalone piece of macabre thrills that only Darius, who seems to experience all the weird shit, could experience.

It was only after rewatching that I caught more deeper themes and subtleties.

what kind of resistance FX as a network had with that MJ episode. Pretty bizarre and brazen that episode ran without any commercial breaks at all as well. That's pretty interesting on its own on multiple levels.

They seem to be letting him down whatever he wants. Strange-ass, 41 minute episode with no commercials...

What this show, and FX, is doing is somewhat unprecedented. No commercials is something that’s...well, crazy in today’s day and age. I assume they had a big buy from the studio behind Lakeith’s movie (that ad aired right before the episode and I’m sure so many people watched it).

But beyond that - this show never confirms to 30 or 60 minute blocks which is rad but not done much in linear cable tv. I know Atlanta is a huge hit, but I doubt it’s pulling the ratings to propose a stunt like this. Networks are SO hesitant to do things like this which is part of what makes it so special.

Anyway - FX does cool weird shit but to see it actually hit and resonate is dope. American Crime Story can pull all types of demos - Atlanta is such a weird interesting show that’s working and I envy what FX is doing right now.

179. "Last night's episode"
In response to Reply # 178


  

          

reminded me of how USA is letting Mr. Robot fly all over the place and let them drop f-bombs in almost all of their episodes.

And I almost forgot Lakeith's small ad before the show. It was pretty funny because I think I remember him saying I'm not asking you to buy anything right before the ad for the flick started. That is an indie movie though, correct? I guess if a major studio backed it, it's possible that movie studio paid for the collective ad spots that other companies would have paid for the normal commercial interruptions.

In response to Reply # 178


  

          

I remember them giving him a pretty long leash in terms of the episodes he produced and when he produced them. If memory recalls, he was only allowed one "fuck" season. They seem to have thrown that out the window with "Atlanta."

In terms of episode length, I know they basically let Kurt Sutter do whatever he wanted to do with SOA. So you got the hour and a half/hour and forty-five minutes broadcast times that helped sink the show.

The "no commercials" during an episode seems new. Closing thing that I've seen with that was during the "Ozymandias" episode of Breaking Bad when there were no commercials for the first half hour.

In response to Reply # 207


  

          

Louie, SOA, now Atlanta are playing with formats in a lot of different ways. It seems to be paying off critically (sometimes ratings wins too). Atlanta does well - just checked the overnights and it did like 776k viewers which is great in today's day and age especially for such a weird show. The actual Nielsen numbers were sorta soft but comparable to other cable hits (similar to Rupaul's Drag Race as an example). I imagine their +3/DVR numbers are significant too.

But still...good on FX for playing with formats and pushing boundaries when it comes to actual content. Watching Wolf of Wall Street a few months back, on like a Sunday during the late afternoon, I was SHOCKED at what they got away with. I had serious jealously...because I'd kill for that type of creative freedom. I imagine what's driving FX's ratings overall is their movies but their original programming is pushing things forward in huge ways. Even when they aren't great shows, they still try to do weird shit...and you can't help but admire that.

222. "That episode blew Get Out out of the water imo"
In response to Reply # 0
Fri Apr-06-18 09:35 PM by Jon

  

          

Blew my mind when I learned Get Out was actually meant to be a horror, and not just a satire.

This one was genuinely scary and still funny. I don't even need to know what it all "means", imo that's almost besides the point. The references are obvious, but I think what we're supposed to get from it is the same complete WTF that Darius is going through.

I think it's best left on that level.

This season has been very streaky for me, but this one was a home run.

228. "IDK yall. Was that a Get Out Tribute or a Jacking of Get Out?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Yeah I wasn't nearly as impressed with it as twitter or some of yall. I was engaged for the entire 40 minutes but by the end I felt like they setup something cool and didn't know what to do with it so they just killed everybody.

My first problem was that there were some filmmaking/storytelling technical questions that I found distracting. Was Donald Glover suppose to be a white man or a black person in whiteface (a la Michael Jackson)? But then I generally find whiteface distracting because its like White Chicks, no matter how good the makeup is, you can never really suspend belief enough to really believe anyone won't see that it's a black person in white face. If the story intended it to be a black person in whiteface and make commentary on MJJ, that's cool but they could have signaled that in the storytelling. If they intended that to just be a white guy, well then the idea DG gave an emmy winning performance is silly to me.

Anyway, that's a minor gripe. My biggest gripe is that this is so obviously a Get Out influenced episode but I am not sure why people give it the benefit of the doubt of being a tribute as oppose to being a rip off? It wasn't a parody of Get Out. It wasn't Commentary on Get Out or the reaction to the movie. It didn't openly reference Get Out. It was just very similar to movie without being additive. That's not terrible. Artist do this all the time, but I kind of feel like because it's Donald Glover, folks are giving him a pass they wouldn't give other artist. Small storytelling gripe: Comeon folks talking about this is as scary as Get Out, different from Get Out you just knew that they weren't going to kill Darius so the stakes were way different in this episode than the movie.

I think there is something interesting their about celebrity and MJJ, but I don't think they said much besides tough show biz parents can screw up their kids.

What I roll my eyes at are all these people reading so much deep meaning into this episode. I just don't think it's there or that the Glovers went that deep with it (e.g., the elevator was intended to invoke the death of Prince. I might have bought that if one of the actors actually died in the elevator but naw. Or that this episode was the freeing of Darius's character from Get Out. Nope). I think this episode was borne out of Donald Glovers desire to try white face and they really didn't have a lot of deep ideas about what to do with it.

And I am not an anti-critical literal analysis type. I was an English Major. One of my last college papers was about how Hamlet was the first self-aware literary character because he was aware he was actually in a play and he was being literally when he said "All the world is a stage...." So I can dig different readings of a work. But it is one thing to ascribe different meanings and readings to a work and it's another thing to say the author INTENDED certain deeper esoteric meanings. Like I read this today:


ep. 1: "alligator man" - the drive-thru scene explains it all

ep. 2: "sporting waves" - paper boi's plug pulls a robbery & tracy robs the shoes

ep. 3: "money bag shawty" - earn & van are robbed of their dignity by racism

ep. 4: "helen" - earn & van rob each other of a potential future together

ep. 5: "barbershop" - bibby robs everyone of time, honesty, money, lumber, trust

ep. 6: "teddy perkins" - a father robs his kids of their childhood, ends up with deadly consequences


Maybe people think that's deep but you can literally make that reading work for anything.

Anyway, again, I think people are trying extra-hard to add a layer of depth to this episode that I doubt they would do if this wasn't Atlanta and Donald Glover.

Ok, that's enough hating for one day.

This show has often introduced characters and situations only for them to be single episode/scene type things, so aside from the killing everyone you can say this about any number of Atlanta episodes. It's kinda their thing. But of course this was going to end in some deaths.

This was incredibly obvious. He wasn't a white guy. The photos of Benny/Teddy very clearly show a black man.

I guess you could call this a spiritual cousin of Get Out in ways, and there were allusions to it for sure, but how is the trope of "Guy goes to a place where a seemingly friendly person turns on them" something that belongs to Get Out?


>I think there is something interesting their about celebrity

Absolutely disagree and if you thought that was all it was commenting on, I've got nothing for you.

You can disagree with some of the other theories (IE the elevator/Prince thing, which I agree is a stretch) - but if you think this was just Donald wanting to do some make up...well, I dunno what to tell you.

Honestly, when you miss really obvious things, like whether or not Teddy is black, I kinda question your literary analysis here.

I am not sure I follow you. My issue isn't with introducing characters and situations and having a one-off episode. My issue is with setting up this strange scenario and character and not having really thing interesting to do with it. That you say that of course it was going to end in some deaths shows that they didn't really come up with something interesting and different and did what viewers would see as inevitable.

It doesn't belong to Get Out. But if you are going to do something so similar to get out, with actors from Get Out, you should do something different from Get Out or comment on Get Out.

I didn't see alot more than that. I mean yeah they had a michael jackson type character but I didn't see any comment on the role of race in the formation of this weird character.

I am sure folks can and will all sorts of deeper things into it, but alot of it is a stretch to me.

You got a lot of "I've got nothing" and "I dunno what to tell you". If it's there it shouldn't be that hard to break it down or communicate.

Please feel free to question and disagree. I appreciate you pointing out my factual error about whether Teddy was black or not. But can you go further and tell me what you think DG was trying to communicate with this episode?

Is because it's broken down in this thread. A lot. Why repeat it?

If you don't feel like these are valid theories about the show - then say why. If you don't think that the episode worked - then cool. But the thing about people looking deeply into art is that - OFTEN times - the creator(s) intentionally put clues/visual gags/colors to invoke feelings, etc. And sure, over-analysis is a thing. We've all seen that. But to discount that completely is wrong.

My personal read on this is that it's very obviously commentary on Michael Jackson, entertainment fathers, and finding out success doesn't fill the void left by a shitty childhood. But that's obvious I guess. I think using a character like Darius, who you kinda believe anything about at this point because he's just that weird and interesting, was a genius move. Paperboy woulda been outta there quickly but they set up Darius' 2-regret policy and you TOTALLY buy into it.

I don't think the elevator/Prince connection means much. I also don't know if it really matters if Benny is their father or not. I also don't think this has any toe stepping on that of Get Out, given that the photo thing was set up with Darius' character last season (?). Sure, it could be a cutesy nod to it (I mean, Get Out did open with a Donald Glover song), but I don't think it matters. I also don't think black horror belongs to Get Out, and I see no real connection between the two outside of the stuff that's been pointed out.

I guess my point here is obviously art is subjective, but the authors of these pieces most often DO put things in to lean into a feeling, a message, etc. To discount that off the jump and say people 'read into things too much' is negating all the work people put into these things - colors, composition of shots, editing, mis en scene, music, art direction...sure, sometimes these things fail or try too hard at these things or try too hard to be "deep" but this show is clicking on all cylinders and it's really dope to watch.
