    Robbin' Season is cloaked in a heavy yet strangely exhilarating veil of dread. ... Yet there are moments of wonder within the brutally and beautifully pragmatic Robbin' Season.

    Not only does it further Earn’s motivation in intriguing new ways, but it invites a broader understanding of his perspective. His problems are both his and so many others’. Brothers Donald and Stephen Glover, who penned the episodes, continue to find natural rhythms to convey the bigger picture.

    A painfully funny follow-up to a debut season that seemed hard to top. ... [Robbin' Season] is loaded with the same brilliant mix of social commentary, internal dialogue and making something out of nothing.

    The so-called Robbin’ Season has the characters confront stranger obstacles, and this gives the writers fresh opportunities to venture into places no other comedy on television can, or is brave enough to attempt. The tone in Atlanta flips from moment to moment without warning, and without alienating viewer. ... And there is a cartoonish craziness to these new episodes that can be mind-boggling even while incorporating honest commentary about the reality of living in today’s America.

    Atlanta is art that announces itself as art, instead of, like so much TV, slinking into the gallery through the doorway marked “entertainment.” ... It is also simply elevated.

    The end result is sort of like the Coen Brothers directed Get Out while listening to trap music, and it's not like anything I've ever seen.

    Atlanta is still good and still roughshod, but there’s a tougher texture to this season. That’s mainly the robbin’ part.

    Nearly perfect.

    The first season of Atlanta had some of the best storytelling I've seen in a long time, with every character getting a chance to shine in episodes of their own or when they're all together. It was interesting, fresh and very well written. Atlanta's second season or Robbin' Season only improves.

    Once again we are given interesting and funny dialogue and cool intriguing ideas, with the best one probably being the Theodore Perkins episode. I was hooked from the first episode and absolutely loved the chemistry between these actors. And like in the first season, this time every major character gets an episode of their own once again, making everyone feel important and interesting. Although it still feels like Donald Glover's character Earn is the main character.

    Up until the eighth episode I was sure that if the last three episodes are this good, this season is going to get a 10/10, and right on cue comes episode nine, which is bad. The whole episode feels like filler. Earn and the crew escape this party and stumble upon another one, and I was bored. I wasn't feeling the "humor" at all. It sucked. It did not feel like Atlanta and was just straight up skip-worthy. It's somewhat saved by a conversation between Earn and Paper Boi but just barely. There was also this character, Tracy, who sucked and I was finally hoping for him to get justice as the show seemed very self-aware about it but even that was f*cked over.

    Episode 10 and 11 were a lot better fortunately. Episode 10 wasn't perfect as the whole episode focuses on childhood Earn and the acting was pretty bad, but it was definitely better. And gladly after that comes episode 11, the final episode, which was fantastic and felt like Atlanta again. It had some satisfying conversations to wrap up plots between characters and a fantastic ending. I loved it.

    Overall, you definitely shouldn't miss this show. It's original, funny and constantly intriguing. Without the ninth episode this would've been a 10/10

    This show was great Season 1 but the humour disappeared in Season 2. Stopped watching at about Ep 4
