FX'sAtlanta feels less like a TV show and more like a record -- that is to say, it feels more like a Childish Gambino album. As someone who’s been following Donald Glover’s acting career since Season 1 of Community and his music career since the release of his EP, titled EP (released in 2011), I’ve found that if when describing the first season of Atlanta you try to put it in a box (dark comedy, sitcom, whatever) you limit yourself to descriptions that are not as accurate as you think. This makes perfect sense – because Glover (pictured at top) has never allowed himself to be boxed in, regardless of the medium.
