Atlanta cast 

"Atlanta" review by Suzanne 9/10/16
Airs Tuesdays 10/9c on FX

I like this show. Although it's a drama, it has a lot of humor as well. It has a nice laidback vibe. Donald Glover ("Community") created the show and stars in it as Earn Marks, a young smart guy who hasn't really done much yet with his life. He lives with his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa (Zazie Beetz), and they share a child. Vanessa seems to know that he's not really mature enough for a real relationship.

Earn finds out that his cousin Alfred is a new rapper by the name of "Paper Boi" (Brian Tyree Henry).  He and their friend Darius (Keith Stanfield) try to help Alfred get more famous and rich, so they can do better in life and help their families.  Darius is a weird kind of guy who says strange things (kind of like Kramer on "Seinfeld").  Of course, things don't always go so well for the guys in their attempts to break into the music biz.

I've noticed that there are a ton of new shows out now featuring African-Americans, as well as written and produced by them. The success of shows like "Empire" and all of the Shondaland shows on ABC are probably what made them possible. They are all very different shows, though. Largely, the quality seems to be good.

Get the word out. This is a cool and fun show.  Better than anything else FX has ever done.
