Insecure: “Hella Blows”

Insecure: “Hella Blows”

“Hella Blows” explores what it looks like when you get a taste of your own medicine. Issa, deep in her ho-tation is literally losing at every turn now. While she meant well reminding Daniel that she and he are just friends, it appears she probably should have had that conversation with herself. Issa completely sucks at understanding the parameters of causal sex. We see an awkward exchange between her and “neighbor-bae” when she shows up at his place unannounced because the light was on. Initially low-key, he grows weird and she does too, after a female calls for him in the back. In that moment, she’s Daniel and he’s Issa,...

This post catches up with what has been going down on Ballers Season Three. We look at the plots of –  Episode 2- “Bull Rush” Episode 3- “In the Teeth” Episode 4- “Ride and Die” and Episode 5- “Make Believe”   As we approach the halfway point in the Ballers season, we see that Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson) is all in with the Vegas deal.

Insecure Episode 5 Review: “Hella Shook”

Insecure Episode 5 Review: “Hella Shook”

It’s official, the hoe phase is on and Issa makes no apologies. As I’m sure you are aware, Issa is embracing the single life and well so is Lawrence. In Episode 5, “Hella Shook,” we see Issa’s roster in full effect. There’s “Neighbor-bae,” Daniel (played by Y’lan Noel) and now a Latino hottie! Issa can’t be stopped! Even with failed dating efforts and app hopping, she’s committed to seeing what being single means—sexually! We see her poorly juggle her men and get lost in her urges to be desired, needed, wanted and sexy. Things take a turn for the worst when she runs her car into a truck in the midst of sexting...

Insecure: “Hella Questions”

Insecure: “Hella Questions”

It turns out that make-up sex has levels to it and depending upon how you see it, this determines how you move on. Episode Two of Season Two deals with the aftermath of the hookup between Issa and Lawrence. Molly forces Issa to explore what the sex meant—was it a “we back together fuck” or a “fuck you fuck?” I’d argue the latter, but who am I to shatter Issa’s dream? Well, we leave that to her core group of friends who, after she breaks the news that she and Lawrence are “talking again” quickly reference how they’re glad he’s done with “the other girl!” There you have folks, Issa now knows about Tasha. And...

Ballers Season Three Premiere: “Seeds of Expansion”

Ballers Season Three Premiere: “Seeds of Expansion”

You see the thing about success is we all want it and Spencer Strasmore (played the Dwayne Johnson) and Joe  (played by Rob Corddry) will stop at nothing to make it happen. The season premiere jumps right in a and it’s business as usual. Spencer and Joe are still sports agents looking for the next IT kid! Oh and now they’re indebted to Ricky Jerret (played by John David Washington) a whole $5 million via that business loan that earned them a spot back in the good graces of ASM (Anderson Sports Management)! I’m not sure if getting a loan from your client is a smart business move but I’m sure things will unfold through the season....
