Critic Reviews for Atlanta Robbin' Season

All Critics (64) | Top Critics (29)

That nagging sense of lost potential gives poignancy to every scene, making this season of "Atlanta" another masterpiece.

Top Critic

The show robbed every one of their ability to ignore a city whose cultural influence continues to be stolen by every other city around the world

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

In some scenes... the weight of community ties seems suffocating; in others, it's evident that none of the characters would survive without one another. The distance between those two points is what Atlanta mines, and what resonates most powerfully.

May 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Atlanta is still good and still roughshod, but there's a tougher texture to this season.

We're lucky to be watching a shooting star in real time.

Glover has conceptualized "Atlanta" so that he can do with it whatever he wants; he's not bound by traditional sitcom rules or limitations. That's the fun of it. It's his ride, and where he goes is anyone's guess. But it will be worth the trip.

Atlanta is often as unsettling as it is funny.

Jul 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The most striking thing about Atlanta is how it surprises you. An episode about absolutely nothing can speak volumes and in a split second, you can go from laughing out loud to stunned silence.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

While the second season's episodes were somewhat disconnected on a narrative level, the cumulative effect was immense. For a show that breaks so many rules, its themes are as old as capitalism.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

In this show, anything is possible, which allows it to take detours that can lead to deeper meaning.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It did not miss a beat. It is still on-point. It is still delivering.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Atlanta has again left its mark as a show of sober reflection, engaging human drama, and a voice that is poetic and radical.

Audience Reviews for Atlanta: Robbin' Season

  • Oct 20, 2020
    This shows pretty funny. I'm guessing it was written by someone who truly believes all white people are racist
  • May 30, 2020
    Genius series. One of the best out there.
  • Sep 27, 2019
    Bigger budget and more intricate focus on the supproting cast still did not tame or take away the bitingly saracastic social commentary expected from this Glover brainchild.
  • Aug 13, 2019
    Don't represent the south.
  • May 22, 2019
    Donald is a genius. Every episode has more creativity in it than whole seasons of other shows.
  • Mar 23, 2019
    A phenominal TV show backed up by its phenominal cast and well written script. The second season of this series is more hard-hitting than the first with its better plots and ultimately better production. The episode "Teddy Perkins" in particular stood out as outstanding to me.
  • Jan 26, 2019
    Funny, weird, deep and some of the best TV ever.
  • Jan 03, 2019
    Debatably better than the first season, "Robbin Season" is weird, funny, and interesting from the start. The show touches on so many different genres, and makes them all work. Some episodes are full on comedy, some horror, but each delightful in their own way. If you don't watch the whole season, at least make sure to watch the episode about Teddy Perkins. It alone is an amazing piece of film, that keeps you horrified, yet unable to take your eyes off the screen.
  • Dec 30, 2018
    Atlanta continues to succeed based on the incredible efforts of its directors, writers, and cast. It nimbly juggles multiple genres and tones all while exploring black life in capitalist America.
  • Oct 09, 2018
    While it maintains originality and has some great episodes there are several that feel like filler.
