Some guys don't get all the luck. Here it's funny and entertaining
15 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Looks like FX has once again found another island in the rough with their new show "Atlanta". Creator, Writer and Actor Donald Glover (no relation to actor Danny Glover) is that guy who everything seems to happen to him and/or around him. Featuring a primarily cast of color, Brian Tyree Henry, Keith Stansfield and Zadie Beetz (each established actors) will surely become household names with this series. Like some of my other favorite FX shows (The Americans, AHS, FARGO, You're the Worst), "Atlanta" is gritty, in-your-face and realistically captures a slice of life rarely shown on TV. "Atlanta" is an adult show about climbing the ranks into the rap scene, and surviving the neighborhood, that shouldn't be missed.
