Atlanta to Stranger Things: the seven best shows to stream this week
Pick of the week
Atlanta has never been a conventional show. The audacity of the opening episode of the third season is as breathtaking as it is bewildering. Showrunner and star Donald Glover’s Earn only appears at the very end – don’t worry, he and his burgeoning hip-hop empire is back front and centre in episode two – but the bulk of the opener is devoted to a darkly comic (but mainly just dark) sequence about the fostering of a hyperactive African-American kid Loquareeous (Christopher Farrar). It is a tale of racism so vast and imperceptible it’s almost tidal. Startlingly good in its own right, it sets the tone for a season more tightly focused and more abstract than before.
