It's good. Watch it! You won't regret it.
It's been a long time since a show has been able to suck me in with the pilot. The last show that was able to do that was Monk. Usually when I see a pilot I'm thinking, "That was okay I guess. But I don't care what happens with them to keep watching." It was very different with Atlanta. I wanted to see what happened with Earn and Paperboy. I want to keep seeing every week what happens with them.
It also feels very real. Although there's a lot of humor involved and some things are exaggerated, I feel as if this material was created by someone who experienced these situations first hand. When it comes to showing the Black community on Television it usually feels fake and based on stereotypes. This doesn't feel like that at all. That's what I love the most.
If you're not watching this you should be. It's funny, the acting is realistic and believable, the writing is great. It's hands down one of the best shows on television.
