Spoilers abound below the fold.
I'm already hooked on FX's Atlanta, starring Donald Glover.
And I really didn't want to like it.
That's because I'm a horrible fan. I'm the type of fan that makes TV producers make horrible decisions that ruin things for actors, directors, and fans alike. That is, I don't want to see Donald Glover grow and show his full range of talents. I'd like to just see Troy and Abed* filming a morning show from the back of a library somewhere (or multiple libraries, without permission, just sneaking in to do it), and have that put on Youtube on a regular basis. That's all I want. Is that too much to ask? Could the actors I love just commit to always playing the characters I love, forever? That's all I want.
*I was able to see a sneak peak of Danny Pudi's new show, Powerless, at Comic-Con. He's definitely playing a new character, but he is entirely hilarious in a similar way such that I can forgive him. Powerless, since we are on the topic, centers around people who sell insurance in a world with superheroes, which means there's a ton of claims because the epic fights we see in movies cause massive death and destruction. Great cast, hilarious show, and Pudi is fantastic in it. Though can we get some Abed references in it, you know, for fans like me?
