So in other words
Nov 04th 2022
286
I'd say these last two are certainly polarizing.
Nov 04th 2022

I guess we should expect the last episode to be about Darius?

Nov 07th 2022
303
Also, the episode was inspired by Wyeth's 1948 painting
Nov 15th 2022
334
the finale better be amazing.
Nov 04th 2022

320
      and then Darius runs in, punches dude and they drive off with Popeye’s
Nov 11th 2022
321
      Before this season started DG compared it to the Sopranos
Nov 11th 2022
322
           It was an entertaining episode
Nov 11th 2022
323
           Darius' grief makes me view the character differently
Nov 12th 2022

Nov 12th 2022
326
I dug the finale
Nov 12th 2022
327
maybe its impossible to have a good finale for a show like this
Nov 12th 2022
328
RE: I dug the finale
Nov 12th 2022
329
Entertaining episode with all 4 of them in it

season 3 was shockingly good, they took the premise and took it to a place I didn't expect. the surrealism was perfect.

Too bad the show isn't set up for syndication so everybody can get paid, but then the art would suffer...but I could be way wrong, maybe it will be

And I say that as a person that LOVES the cast.
Last season was fantastic. I loved that the writers explored more ideas.

Based on the trailer I figure this will be just the orig. cast,
but yeah...more anthology stuff please.

Yo! Ha ha.

Loved that entire looting scene.

I saw that they pulled the moment with the woman in the wheelchair from a viral story. Not familiar with it though.

Especially when she starting appearing in Darius' rearview mirror. I thought she was going to be a one time character at the start of the episode.
The fact the she kept popping up everywhere with supernatural ability was hilarious.

I know for sure she killed that girl they left in that parking lot.

Not that police interactions are all that great, but I’d rather explain what’s going on to them than somebody like Dwight from the office thinking they’re a high ranking law enforcement officer as a volunteer.

Definitely got lost in the parking deck about 3 times, before I started paying attention to what I was parking near.

-Greenbriar Rich’s FTW!
-Finding/seeing people you used to kick it with at Atlantic Station is so accurate and specific.
-Going that far to ruin the lady from the airport’s life was magnifique, and I’m glad Earn felt like shit for doing it.
-A posthumous scavenger hunt seemed like something MF Doom would do.

I loved the S3 weird shit, but these are off to a way better start.

When Al said "he died three months ago and they just released a statement" that made me think about him dying on Halloween and the statement about his death came on New Year's Eve. Plus he lived in Atlanta.

they made sense once you experienced things that made the references come alive.

zoo pie is a thing?

paper boi sat down, as the song said "over your head like a piece of meat, sit down, lean back and take a seat"

right as he sat down under the pictures.

exactly. and then paper boi got to the funeral and blue blood's girl was like, you the fifth one. he thought there'd be more.

30. "I hope they don't go all in on the surreal stuff"
In response to Reply # 0


          

I liked episode 2 much more than ep 1 because it was more realism.

Seasons 1 and 2, there was surreal moments sprinkled in.
But it was mainly realistic. Earn being homeless and dealing with relationship issues. Al balancing fame. Van trying to pass a drug test. Darius selling a dog.

The first episode made the surreal the main event. Wheelchair Karen who can track down an air fryer anywhere. The haunted mall where exes are banished to. The mall emergency exit that leads to Al on his dead rapper scavenger hunt.

Episode 2 was more grounded in real life like season 1 and 2. Even though Earn's extreme vindictiveness borders on surreal lol

I didn't see the entire interview, but I saw a clip of Donald Glover on LeBron's HBO Babershop show. In the clip, he mentioned his primary motivation for the Awaken My Love album was to spite someone that said he couldn't make a top charting album, if memory serves me correct.

I'm sure someone will post up the Youtube clip below this response to correct me if I'm wrong.

purposely didnt make a video for redbone. Wanted to show he could do it off the music alone just to prove the point.

I reveled in that shit. I can't imagine any black person that has suffered the kind of petty indignity he went through doesn't fantasize about doing what he did.

And if it cost you relatively nothing to pull off, why not?

when everyone started leaving her at the reading i was thinking thats so weird but had no clue what was going on.

granted the random agent calling her was odd but never did i think she was the airline worker lol

when he was in therapy and asked for a break it was a bit odd but i also did think he maybe was sincere. he just needed to make sure he wasnt talked out of doing it lol

Shit caught be COMPLETELY by surprise. But on the real I LOVED them showing a black man in therapy for black man shit.

It was also nice to get an explanation for what the fuck happened in Princeton.

That's a REALLY fucked up way to lose a scholarship. I see why he was so ruderless for so long. Nigga was depressed and had no resources to deal with it.

This damn near could've been one of those midseason finales that shows will do now.

I loved it so much. The therapy sessions. The filling in the blank on Princeton did something for me. Thinking about how people treated him earlier in the show even after all of that hurts in a different way now too. And thinking of how that shit could impact you basically forever? Yeah...its a lot. And it makes sense that he'd be ready to roll out on all of those folks now that he can...especially Paper Boi, who he seems to be at least kinda 'over'.

I didn't 'know' it was Earn until he gave the lady the money.

Seeing crazy ass Tracy being crazy ass Tracy was wonderful. And yes, it let me think a 'reveal' of some sort was coming. But, I didn't think about it. I didn't even get that Earn was the guy when the lady said that she worked at the airport during the whole 'the service dog can't come in here' exchange. That's the hint I regret missing the most.

And real talk, I've been thinking about therapy for a while. There's enough things that I have filed under 'it sucks but get over it' that I probably need some work on to ACTUALLY be 'over' versus mind-fucking myself to 'act like I'm over it' when maybe I'm really not (work stuff, parents stuff, friendship stuff, regrets on decisions, etcetera).

When they stayed in some chicks apartment to do a show, then the next morning, she had thrown all their shit out on the quad...and Earn's laptop was missing.

remember how we went berserk and started pounding on the door and screaming to get his laptop?

in hindsight, he was definitely triggered from the Princeton incident...the writing and character development on this show is so excellent.

...I figured out where this was going. Well, actually I thought that things were going to go terribly wrong her (like her cursing out a kid or using a racial slur on camera) completely independent of Earn, and it was going to be karma catching up to her without Earn ever knowing about it.

He had to pay for all those actors and he had to pay to use that office space for that fake literary agent meeting I would imagine. I suppose he's doing that well for himself as an agent that the considerable cost didn't bother him.

As potential spiteful an individual I am (I'm more so someone that harbors grudges rather than look to outwardly try to spite folks on purpose), it was pretty cool how ultimately the 'victory' was an empty one that only Earn was able to celebrate. No one else in that bar cared about ruining that woman's life but him.

and some people act like the person is so pressed they would actually leave their house and physically act on their response..

well, Earn actually is that dude who would post about hating someone and went so far with it you really have to commend him for his dedication.

everyone else was like “you still talking about that shit?”

like when OKP’s used to say they took train rides to meet up and fight each other..

i'd imagine a lot of it comes from that episode (S1?) where Darius offers to turn his cell phone cash at pawn shop into $2K (via the sword, pitbull & pitbull breeding trading scheme)--and when Earn realizes at the end of that whole day, he still needs to wait months for the dogs to breed to get that money, and Darius winds up offering him his cell phone to get his original cash still that day?

(and then Darius comes through on his promise of the money a few episodes later, way after Earn probably forgot about it)

Darius is one of my favorite tv characters ever

56. "I really dug the second episode. "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It was good storytelling.

I was confused while watching (why was the Agent's secretary so rude? what does this woman have to do with anything? no way kids could be that mean and teachers didn't intervene?) and was well paid off by the ending.

Also think its a super relevant to internet cultural fights we have today.

and the fallout/consequence that comes along with it.

this is i think the 3rd time he's hit this sort of thing. first with the mobbing of the tone-deaf asian girl at the party, then with liam neeson.

i don't know exactly what's Glover's intent but we purposely don't see what happens at the airport... and i realize the ep doesn't work if we did, but we do spend a good amount of time inside her world, and see her hopes, struggles, then her life destroyed. We see his friends being like damn, dude...

also i assumed she had a crush on her neighbor but given her airport persona, not so certain. dude better watch his back.

and i see why her friend didn't believe in her writing.

I think she did, on some level, but she’s also the type of person that can go from crush to hate if feelings aren’t reciprocated. She’d probably call the cops on him for something arbitrary if he continues to ignore her or if they have a bad interaction. People are weird like that.

but had no idea it was the TSA lady.

When they showed her on TV at the bar I was like “wtf kinda reality show was this?”

but after the reveal by Earn the best thing about that episode was the last
line

“I need more therapy”

shit had me rolling. Earn is sick af, lol..

70. "BTW, anyone get MF Doom vibes from the first episode?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I've seen a few times on here and twitter folks holding out and thinking that maybe MF Doom's death announcement was an elaborate hoax that he was setting up for a future album. Can't say I am 100% sure he is truly dead.

And if we still thinking the show is deep, I guess the idea is that Earn and Van were lost in dating purgatory and Earn almost left her there but they left together, foreshadowing that their relationship is going to improve?

I’m talking about in terms of what is presented on-screen that we know happens to him across the 4 seasons, like this, burning up gas on a citywide scavenger hunt, getting jerked in the poker game, and getting his phone stolen by a person standing behind him last season.

At face value (on-screen presentation), the lil YWA seminar didn’t go into what to do when the YWA dies, despite real-world logic saying “just go get another one”.

I’m sure this is all about signing shitty white artists vs signing a Black icon but they went somewhere else with it. Some John Malcovich type steez

to go to further his career, IMO
I thought to myself, what does D’ represent to Ern
No way any agent would risk their career on signing D’ off a hairdresser’s co-sign
IMO, it was supposed to be ridiculous, especially for people familiar with D’s career and long hiatus
Ern literally said 5 minutes later…what is D’?
I found it hilarious, especially the notches on the wall
D’ symbolized Ern’s willingness to sacrifice everything to further his career
It wasn’t supposed to be literal, IMO.

he gets out of that fucked up meeting by saying he thinks he can get D'Angelo, which they might not have even really expected of him, but he ends up spending days in that room lol committed to trying to sign him. Like sitting in that meeting would be shitty but it wouldn't have lasted that long! There are other angles but it's funny as an office joke almost.

The exaggerated D'angelo seclusion is funny, I really went back and forth on whether they might have got him lol the fact that he's playing videogames and the only thing we kinda know about him outside his album releases recently was his RDR2 enjoyment was cute. Was it a network of D'Angelos or just this one dude?

Based on your interpretation... he's in the wrong business then... right?

Just to clarify
Do ya'll really believe there's trap doors that lead to D's dressing room?
Or an escape door from an alternate reality of exes?

109. "Was I alone in thinking"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

last night's episode was a dud? Main reason being that there's no emotional connection or investment to Earn's family, at least on my part, to truly care about what happened last night.

It was somewhat cool the show brought Kat Williams back though.

I suppose it was also somewhat cool that there were no clear cut right or wrong persons in what went down since it did appear the grandfather wasn't totally aware of what was going down when Earn's mother 'kidnapped' him.

My fam going through this exact same thing including the light skinned aunt controlling my grandfather, and my own father telling me last week he felt threatened by some teenagers messing with him on the train.

So its a gift and curse. If you can relate then it hit hard, if not then it probably did feel like a dud.

This was so beautiful. And I'm just old enough now to where I can remember my dad noping out AND I've already started noping out on certain stuff and I haven't even been married for a decade yet.

I'm in this line. It was a great ep for me.

And the 'disconnect'? I felt it, understood it, and I have lived with it at various times with various groups of people, family and otherwise.

I'm so glad this show exists and is willing to put this type of stuff 'out there'.

The deference to the elders no matter what stuff plays out very similarly in asian households too


I was dying when Earn and Al were walking and too scared to look back because holy shit I would do the exact same thing with my own aunts

Not all of the themes were meant for me of course. but the family stuff hit very close to home

and when we all get together its just snide comments and shade. I love it.

but the bitterness, the anger, the jokes, all that shit is my family and yes, its exhausting.

114. "Ha! Literally one of my favorite episodes. "
In response to Reply # 109


  

          

My favorite episodes have always been the ones that really speak to authentic black experiences. Like the prison episode, the first Katt Williams episode, and this one.

It just felt like that could have been any Southern Black Family Drama.

When it started it made me aware we don't see nothing about Earn's family on the show. I also get the vibes from Donald Glover he's the type of brother who is a bit embarrassed by his family. That came through in the episode, but he authentically addressed it and acknowledged it.

If you felt no emotional connection to Earn's family this far in the ep, this episode kind of explains why. This was good Earn backstory to me, just like the therapy episode.

I think the backstory eps are good but I do also feel like the show is running out of time, if there is to be some resolution/evolution for Earn. I feel like they are setting up Earn getting back with Van, but I hope they have proper build up for it given so few episode left.

asked Earn's dad if he should let Earn manage him. I know its hard remember season 1 but it was literally one of the foundational scenes of the show. That was when the show was actually normal before they went off the deep end on the weird shit.

It was so beautiful to see it laid out in that way. And real talk, cute women at kiosks have been doing in dudes of all ages in the mall for like..forever. I remember buying some fingernail files, lotions and shit from a very fine young lady. And I was like 25, in shape, and running into the mall right quick to buy some clothes. I was looking upside her too hard, she saw me/called me on it, and it was over from there. Knowing what I know now, I should’ve legit tried to holler. Instead, I got more physical contact than was necessary, she got me to buy some files and random nail shit (that I eventually used the hell out of), and that was that.

And when she came with the secret hat!? That shit was too accurate. I loved it.

Those damn kiosk people are savage. These days they walk like 30 yards up and down getting people.

I treat them like the homeless when I have no change.

First time a woman did it, I was like “yup, still got it..” then she hit me with the sales pitch and burst my bubble

Yep. The one who got me was something like that. Thick accent. Thick other stuff too. But not in a surgical/model/overly sculpted way. It was more in a southern/woke up like this one day and it didn't go away type way. AKA my favorite. I was enthralled.

136. "One of my fav ATL episodes ever"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Highlights:
The look on Earn's mom's face when she skrtted off with grandpa lol

Earn's dad instantly going from pure joy to terror once he realized he stayed at the mall too long. That whole scene had me feeling anxious.

Auntie: "you see....they in EGYPT"

The MacDonalds straight lock up the seating there from like 3-5pm to keep the kids from hanging out and acting up. They got a lady working there I swear must be a school teacher because she is so good at talking to the kids and keeping them settled (like the old teacher from Abbot Elementary) and she does it like its her full time job

I have never ever ever ever ever ever forgotten.

BUT

This episode made it wildly clear for anyone who was, is, or has ever fronted. The getup with the boots? Clay Davis may as well could’ve been a static graphic at the bottom of my screen like the ‘toastyyyyy!’ Dude from Mortal Kombat. Of course, he’d be saying ‘shiiiiiiiiiiiied’ for the whole episode..low in the background..even during commercials.

This episode is pretty wild though. Almost feels personal more so than criticizing Tyler Perry's art.

Must be pretty liberating to be comfortable enough to burn that Tyler Petty bridge so openly.

reminds me of the first episode of Meet the Paynes.

Wife and I were like “is his wife really going to be on crack?”

all while watching them flub lines, stutter and trip over shit and clearly give no fucks about reshooting scenes. Heard they were pumping out a ridiculous amount of episodes to get syndication in record time.

It's just that I'm surprised to see another artist dump on another artist so overtly. I don't want to give the impression that I like Tyler Perry or that I'm defending him.

178. "he really did. as i said on twitter, they should win all the Black award..."
In response to Reply # 172


  

          

this shit.

which is itself hilarious, because BET or NAACP would not EVER give them an award for *this* episode and risk angering Mr Chocolate.

>how he just BODIED the last 10 minutes or so of this episode
>

he really did.

>This felt like more of a character out of Community or his old
>sketch show than anything we've seen before in Atlanta
>
>This EP reminded me of the Teddy Perkins episode but way less
>morbid

that was an excellent episode. this was kinda dark, too, just differently. but mr chocolate coulda done some shit to them kids if he wanted to with all the power he had.

peace & blessings,

189. "Serious question for those that rock with this season"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Do y’all find it FUNNY. like laugh out loud funny. The show is clever, and delivers some thought provoking content. But I feel like they abandoned the comedic value of the show in favor of compelling story telling like 2 seasons ago. Seasons 1-2, I felt comfortable telling people Atlanta was a comedy sitcom everyone should check for.

I can’t describe it that way anymore. If I put a friend on to the show, they might get “Get Out” or the Black Eyes Wide Shut, or some other random shit that you weren’t mentally prepared to tune in for when you signed up for some belly laughs.

the comedy is a bit understated this season for sure. and there's a lot of subtle shit. more often than not i'm looking at the screen w/ my jaw dropped.

The “Target” being looted was actually the Macy’s/Rich’s at Greenbriar. Just internally hilarious when I can pinpoint where they are.

The killer wheelchair lady.

Like I said above, I’ve been lost in the Atlantic Station parking deck multiple times.

It’s funny on a very specific note.

Rick Moranis is the guy from “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”.

Ep 3 is still the one for me. But I tend to like the rap business heavy episodes the best.

Yep. I let them write the show. I watch the show and look super hard at Van every chance I get. I don't really 'expect' anything per se. It works for me and Van is sprinkling the steaks/Marv Albert 'YES'/John Madden 'BOOM!'/Mike Breen 'BANG!' good looking to me so I'm doing great.

Yes, I want to know 'what happens to them' ultimately. But I trust them to tell me what they want me to know when they want me to know it. Like them waiting the whole season to make it clear that Earn was living in a storage unit...excellent!

196. "Covid and schedule conflicts turned it into Seinfeild/Sunny"
In response to Reply # 194


          

and there is nothing wrong with that..

It started with an obvious story and slowly turned into a show where you can turn it on, not watch any other episodes and still be entertained. There will be some “wtf.. wow, that’s crazy.. what is this show called again and whats it about?” moments and if you go back you will probably be like “this a whole different ass show” lol

Atlanta to me is a show where every week I’m like “where they going and what they doing”

but the real joy is watching it with my wife who doesn’t follow the show. Her reactions are comical and confirm that what he is doing works.. just dont ask questions or demand clear answers. Just watch it and enjoy the madness.

the barber episode was the only one were I prolly cracked a rib laughing out loud.

that shit was gold.

and the comedian that played the barber was like “I thought I would have a few lines and I show up and he’s like.. the whole episode is about you!”

and that’s Atlanta. Little slices of moments in time and turning what could be 5 minutes into 45 minutes. Like I said above, its like a Black ass Seinfield now for me.

prolly smoking weed and saying “remember that time when..”

and then they dive deeper and turn it into an episode.

In response to Reply # 189


  

          

Like I kept waiting for them in the first season to return to the gun charges from the first episode.

Now I enjoy it as an anthology series knowing I am going to like more stories more than others. It was also a good strategy to release two seasons so close together because I think if they waited for ever to drop a 10 episode season I think the stakes would be that much higher for every episode to be perfect.

Black people are not a monolith and there are plenty of black folks who are underserved in art and in media.

I appreciate that I can go to a show like this and not have to expect or want slapstick shit. There's layers to this shit that go beyond just "was it funny enough".

We do that with too much shit and miss out on stuff.

A few eps ago Paperboi was worried about his longevity.

Now he's too rich to cut the cord.

Seemed like he was done making music, or at least no one was checking for him.

Now he got mumblerappers trynna get him on they shit.

I wonder if this was actually meant to be the original sequence of episodes.

I bet that terrible song gon be a hit.

I’m a sucker for spoof songs. And the way he finally got him on the song was too perfect for this show. And he just had the track at the ready to play for him in the car!? Bwahahahhahahahhahahaha!

I took the ep you’re talking about as more of a ‘you’re hot enough but don’t think your shit is gonna last forever ever. Cuz it is not’.

I read it the same way. Kinda like a "yea you're still hot now but prepare for a future when you're not" thing.

Just that he was on the back 9 of his career and fighting for relevance a bit, but still had juice.

I also don't think "worrying about his longevity" means that he's no longer rich.

it felt a bit out of place in this season.

to the point that the opening dialogue gave me a strong sense of deja vu and i thought i might have been watching a re-airing for a while.

How are you a rich rapper (anywhere really but ESPECIALLY in Atlanta) and you don't have a gun handy?

He heard a strange noise in the crib and he leaves. No gun in the living room or kitchen

And then goes to a.......shopping mall? Where you still don't have one?

Solid ep overall but that part just didn't add up to me

Nice to see Earn “earn” her trust but ionno, that exchange kinda bothered me.

Earn: “I can have someone in LA”

I was like noooo, dont say that

V: “I don’t want you to love me as her mother”

ugh, do you really believe that?


I know people want to hear when they need to hear but did his answer really convince you or has his actions convinced you and you just needed words to solidify it?

why does love have to be so hard? lol

I understand that it's a balance and appreciate it, as I said. I think the show does a great job of covering all bases in that regard.

I just don't think 3 more somber episodes would be in line with the show's overall tone and feel, is all I was saying. They can interject some of those moments with the regular weirdness/avante garde funny shit like they normally do, IMO.

But I don't mean to overstate it - I don't have any expectations for the final eps. And I know that whatever direction they go, they'll nail it. Was just saying I don't *think* they would go in that direction for the rest of the season.

I hear you but part of the reason relationships are so hard is because of insecurities. It's refreshing (it's a TV show, I know) when a couple can be straightforward and honest about what they both know damn well deep down is the truth. The worst relationships I ever had (and I imagine I'm not alone) were those where my sig other (or me, at times) had this fairytale idea of love and relationships and expected that I'd never even glance in another girl's direction again. Or talk about past relationships. Or consider the future with objectivity instead of blind idealism.

Anyway more specific to the episode, I actually think what he said helped to convince her and I thought he said it in the right tone and worded it well. I'd have had your reaction had he been like "girl you know I got money and can get whoever I want but I want you" or some alpha shit like that lol.

and i'm so glad they didn't write it that way because how they wrote it is what candid, truthful conversations look like. people who have the courage to be vulnerable talk like that. people who want to truly know other people LISTEN like that. i love that they showed that.

i see what Donald is doing in this last season...he's giving us How to Do Therapy, How to Do Family, How to Do Relationships...basically How to Mature as an Adult.

248. "This is the episode they needed"
In response to Reply # 229


  

          

The "Van Episode" from last season was rushed, and relied on gimmicks and surreal stuff to tell Van's story and I ultimately didn't buy it. Didn't connect to anything real (all of a sudden we learn Van is suicidal?!?! Where did that come from)

I love the bare bones, 4 characters, all set outdoors episode. The most expensive thing in the episode was probably that Sade song. When it started my wife's thought it was a strange song choice. By the end it was clear why they chose that song.

It was good to see Van and Earn getting along. But it was also clear that they were being ultra polite. Trying to do the best thing for their daughter. The episode felt sad and somber. You ever been out with someone with the plan of breaking up with them at some point on that date? That's what it felt like.

I'm like Legs and I kinda hated what Earn led with in the tent. It ain't Jodeci to lead with I can have anyone I want. But as I thought about it was real. The problem with professing love like 90s R&B lyrics is that it can seem shallow and fake and just the things you are supposed to say. Nothing we've seen in the show to date suggest Earn would talk like that.

Van did a good job of showing her vulnerability from their last confrontation (I played the table tennis scene for my wife after this episode to remind her when they last spoke on it). She made Earn work. Earn it. I think a lot of women would have been happy just that he asked, or wanted to be a good dad and have a family. She was in her right to want more. Where she was coming from made perfect sense.

For the entire season them having a child seemed a throwaway. Never saw her, never really impacted the story, this season is the first season she had lines. I think Glover didn't have children when the show started. The little girl barely had 10 lines, but she was centered. She didn't do much this episode but that smile at the end was the whole thing. Kids can feel parents dynamics and you can be polite as you want around them, but they know when something is off. Her characters quietness and somberness through out the season was by design. And her smile at end was a sign a corner had been turned in Earn and Van's relationship.

That Sade song though. That Best of Sade use to be my go to SMASH CD so it was just a great choice for me. Earn was literally on his knees for Van in that tent. Love is definitely stronger than pride.

Yes it was a slow episode. But this relationship is central to the show and they needed to take their time to resolve (just like they need to take their time to deal with Paperboi dealing with his mom's death). They did what they needed to do.

She didn't seem excited about the idea, didn't seem to enjoy it. Only thing she was happy about was catching whatever she caught lol

Definitely a change of pace. I think it was good for the story but it probably could have been done better. I also agree that it could have worked better as the final episode.

I think that I will always rewatch seasons 1, 2, and 4. It’s some of the best TV I’ve ever seen.

Season 3 is like Nastradamus. I’ll be good with just ignoring that it ever happened.

Slow paced “breather” episodes can be hurt by commercials when watching live IMO. But when you can skip the commercials it really helps.

I don’t know….I always like slow episodes when it’s characters that I like just talking. Glad that surreal, weird shit hasn’t taken over the show this season. Sad that it’s almost over, but am really looking forward to the last 3 episodes.

..this show is going for the jugular.

Reading some of the criticism expressed in this thread might have you believe we're watching completely different shows. That's the beauty of interpretation. Say what you want about their approach, they recreated the mood of the score damn-near line for line. If you've ever truly spent time alone with your thoughts and this song, it's almost impossible to ignore.

•style
•character development
•depth
•pacing
•range
•writing

This series has everything. Well-timed cameos sprinkled about, and as previously stated: not one line wasted. They've taken chances some clearly wouldn't, and still nailed it. Intelligent, witty, uncompromising, and sometimes uncomfortable art.

All of this in a sitcom.

I'm in this line. I'm excited for the last 3 episodes.

Mostly, I just trust these folks to finish this show without feeling like they need to baby anyone with how they get to 'the end' they want to have. There could be time jumps, flashbacks, or both and I wouldn't be shocked at all.

I know I have basically no expectations, so I see it like I'm set to be pleased. AKA I'm not thinking 'oh, Earn and Van better make it'. Or 'They better not kill Paper Boi'.
