Atlanta is probably the best show on Australian television right now. That is a scientific fact. Broadcast or streaming, I don’t care. This show is that good.

Don’t agree with me? Well, what do you think is better? Married at First Sight? Billions? Get outta here.

In fact, I’m so confident that Atlanta is the best that I will come down to wherever you are and fight you about it. That’s all I’m saying. I will do that. Send me your address. I want to know where you’re at so I can send you a message in the post that reads, “‘Sassy’ Babs is coming to fight you.”

But I’m not the only one who feels this way.

On The Playlist podcast, co-hosts Nick Bhasin and Fiona Williams agree that Atlanta is an amazing show. They say a lot of great things about it and it’s seriously entertaining. 

They also talk about how relevant Good Night and Good Luck (available on SBS On Demand) is in today’s toxic politics vs journalism environment. And Fiona interviews Martin Scorsese. Maybe you’ve heard of him.

The entire series of Atlanta is available to binge on SBS On Demand and airs Tuesdays at 9:20pm on SBS VICELAND. Watch the first episode right here:
