The FX show exceeded all expectations after its release. Each episode was a short story; a poignant observation race, class, parenting, money, culture. Sometimes, it was all these packed into one, like the infamous “B.A.N” episode. It picked up two Golden Globes (for Best Series, Musical or Comedy as well as Best Actor for Glover) and earned six Emmy Nominations – it was 2016’s best new show.
