    This series needs its own thread since it’ll certainly warrant conversation. The promo campaign for it has been so unusual. Glover himself said he intended the show to be Twin Peaks with rappers.

    Those who have FX should be watching this show! The first two episodes of the season premiered tonight and they’re excellent. I love the characters the stylistic choices in telling the story make it worthy of repeat watches.

    Would love for the TV Academy to embrace this. I think they will to some extent because the critical and cultural support for it is already huge.

    I had to pack last night and catch up on some other things so I had to record it and Queen Sugar. Can’t wait to watch both.

    The Premiere is on YouTube, hosted by FX. It was very good! I’m so excited about this show! Beautifully produced, great storytelling and performance by Donald Glover.

    Glad they’re making the pilot freely available after broadcast. It can only grow the show’s following.

    Wow, best show on TV since Sense8.

    Great writing and story. Super enamoured with Keith Stanfield’s performance as Darius.

    I liked this, but I wasn’t as high on it as others. It’s definitely a little weird, but I really value that in a “comedy” series. Donald Glover is really so effortlessly charming. Ketih Stanfield is absolutely killing me, I love Darius. So far, I like what I see.

    It’s a fairly bizarre show, even by the established standards f[X] has set over the years with “Louie” and co. Didn’t love the pilot and not all that taken with Donald Glover’s “Earn,” but there is some potential with this ascendancy premise. The standout for me in both episodes was Bryan Tyree Henry (well, more in the pilot, I guess). I’m fully invested in “Paper Boi” making it, and Henry has this effortless swagger to him that’s appealing to watch. I hope that there’s grander ambitions for him than just getting paid or only material success. This guy could be more than a local one-hit wonder hustler, but a true voice of his people in the whole “Black Lives Matter” movement. I’m somewhat curious to see where things go in the coming episodes, but it’s not priority viewing yet.

    It’s fantastic, but it also feels like it’s actually about something. Particularly the second episode, which has that really brutal scene in which the guards beat that mentally disabled man.

    Episode 3 gets deeper and darker. I didn’t realize for the all comedy it would feel this bleak going forward.

    Darker? Hmm, it already felt like a half-hour drama by episode 1.

    Season one qualifies this year for SAG and Globe recognition. Will either bite?

    I thought episode 3 was actually really funny for the most part. I can’t see it doing good on SAG but Globe nominations for Glover and Series are a given.
