Thursday TV: After a Long Wait, ‘Atlanta’

It’s been four years since the last new episode of “Atlanta” (FX, 10 p.m.), Donald Glover’s excellent and disarming comedy. It may not seem so since his episodes linger so long in the mind. That’s the case with tonight’s pair — the first, a standalone nightmare about the care of young black men that’s on a par with “Get Out”; the second has Ern out in Denmark for the big Paperboy tour, which has already had its ups and downs, and a marvelous moment about an address found in a second hand coat.
