Ok, so we’ve already shared with you reasons why Donald Glover’s Atlanta should’ve been on your watch list prior to its debut. From having an all black writer’s room, to tackling real issues the black community faces on a daily basis, Atlanta is definitely deserving of its high ratings and pleasant reviews. And after obsessing over the first few episodes, we compiled a follow up list to prove why it’s probably one best things on television today.

Everything from ordering wings from ATL’s hotspot, JR Crickets, to the music, the writers are meshing all of Atlanta’s true nuances into the show.

Vanessa having natural hair, or wearing her headscarf to bed may not seem like a big deal to some, but every black girl fan of the show can relate to this tiny moment all too well. We are represented, and it feels good.

Paperboy (Brian Tyree Henry) and Darius (Keith Stanfield) are already fan favorites, and their comedic timing is perfect.

The jail scene between the black man and his trans-female lover inspired a healthy internet discussion about transphobia in the black community, and we have Atlanta writers to thank for that.

They have a child, live in the same house, sleep in the same bed, yet they aren’t official. We don’t know about you, but this screams “drama” to us and we can’t wait to see this dynamic play out.

We’re definitely intrigued to see how and when he gets his big break. But until then, watching his journey is super inspiring to all of us.

Needless to say, we adore this show!
