Bonus: The end of 'Atlanta'

View descriptionShare

For this bonus episode we've got Jared McNett back onboard to spend some time digesting the series finale of 'Atlanta.'

Created by Donald Glover and premiering on FX in 2016, just a month before his song 'Redbone' hit the charts, 'Atlanta' started off as a show about a struggling rapper and their rise-and-grind manager. The episodes and seasons that followed stretched, distorted and occasionally even outright neglected that basic premise, with Glover and his creative partners incorporating mocumentary formats, animation, commercial spoofs and other wild techniques. 'Atlanta' could be all over the place, but despite all that stylistic restlessness the show was always deeply grounded in some combination of social, emotional, political, or cultural sentiment (occasionally all at the same time). It's a show the likes of which (rich, weird, funny and deeply rewarding) are unlikely to happen again anytime soon.

You can stream all four seasons of 'Atlanta' on HULU.
