    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.

Though these episodes are still pretty greatThe overarching plot of Atlanta kinda meanders in its second season with many filler episodes. Though these episodes are still pretty great little vignettes on their own, they do slow down the progression of the story and its character quite a bit. While season two is not as great as the first, Atlanta still is one of the best shows on television and I really hope that it has a fruitful future with many seasons to follow, can't wait for the third.
