    Finally all caught up. My grades:
    Alligator Man: A+
    Sportin’ Waves: A+
    Money Bag Shawty: B
    Helen: B
    Barbershop: B+
    Teddy Perkins: A+
    Champagne Pap: B+

    So far I like it better than last season.

    Update: Finally watched the episode from the 19th in one sitting. Long story short: I don’t feel good.
    Woods: B+

    I think Atlanta will show its strength as a frontrunner if it could get nominations for some of its no name guest actors.

    Nope. TV Academy prefers major film names who slum in a TV guest spot to award them.

    “Woods” was fantastic. Stephanie Robinson is an outstanding writer and I’m very happy she signed an overall FX deal because she has amazing potential. Both of her episodes this season are Emmy worthy if you ask me, but if she can only submit one, I think she should go with “Barbershop.” Donald Glover is a lock for writing and Stephen Glover has a good chance as well since he was nominated last year, but I think Stefani Robinson will likely be nominated as well.

    The last two episodes might be my favourite of the show.  I loved Alfred laying out his philosophy in “Woods”, although I also got suicide-risk vibes.  Firing Earn seems like it should get him back on track.  Pretty bold for the show to admit the shortcomings of its protagonist (and not in some weird Glee/GLOW way in which it has too much fun doing it).  Earn is a borderline-supporting character this season.  I am finally on board with a Brian Tyree Henry nomination this season; I had been underwhelmed by his material in “Sportin’ Waves” and “Barbershop”.  Too bad that people are starting to tune out.  Also great was Paper Boi being mugged.  The scene was low-stakes, yet visceral if that makes any sense.  Nudity was uncensored on the FX press site, by the way.  I wish that we had more of a sense of Paper Boi’s level of fame.  Everyone seems to know him now, even beyond Atlanta, but does he still just have the one song in which he repeats his name?

    WOW “North of the Border” was one of the best episodes this season. I think this would be a great tape submission for Donald Glover if he thinks the “Teddy Perkins” episode might be too confusing.

    Woods is my favorite episode of the entire series.

    Something about “Woods” was even more unsettling than “Teddy Perkins.” It didn’t leave a good taste in my mouth but I can’t quite pinpoint what it was that threw me off. “North of the Border” was a perfectly structured episode of “Atlanta” and totally made up for the lack of Earn in the past three episodes. It was time for the Earn-Al relationship to implode, and while Earn is certainly to blame for being a mediocre manager, I hope the show reckons with the fact that Al is an AWFUL client. At least Earn is motivated to succeed versus Al who seems bothered by every little thing. I also wish the show would explore Al’s success a little more just so we have some idea of how big he is and where his career actually stands. Overall, this season is maybe a little better than season one to me, but for both seasons, they are good with a few standout episodes each.

    Awesome episode. Donald never tires of proving, week after week, that he is a great artist.

    FUBU is definitely the most important episode of the series.

    I wonder if the show’s awards voters will be dented some by the fact that ostensibly it’s a “comedy series.”

    Comedies these days are single camera, no laugh track, and filled with dramatic situations and tension.

    I wasn’t expecting this, but FUBU is the episode we all needed.

    Some of these episodes have me wondering if there will ever be a Dramedy category
