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....

Insecure Season 2 Premiere: “Hella Great”

Insecure Season 2 Premiere: “Hella Great”

Team Issa versus Team Lawrence Ok…so I’ll be the first to admit that going into Season 2 of Insecure, I was #teamIssa! No if ands or buts about it. Something about being the person in a relationship who feels like things are stagnant and just aren’t growing, plus the appeal of the unknown resonated with me more than the guy who sits at home, depressed, uninspired and unmotivated. But, in all fairness, we can fall victim to either role in real life…so choose your side carefully! What happens next? Well, even I wasn’t ready for the adventures we see Issa, Molly and Lawrence expose us to in the premiere episode. Issa (played by the...

VEEP: The Final 5 Episodes of Season 6

VEEP: The Final 5 Episodes of Season 6

  This season of VEEP made it clear that there is really nothing more important to Selina than these two things: being elected President, and if she can’t be President, then the legacy she’s left behind. The first half of the season focused on a Selina whose legacy was questionable and embarrassing, to say the least. But in true DC fashion, troubles don’t last always. The episodes are #6 “Qatar” from 05.21; #7 “Blurb” from 05.28; #8 “Judge” from 06.11 #9 “A Woman First” from 06.18 and #10 “Groundbreaking” from 06.25. At this point in the season, Selina is all about business and image, which is essentially...
