Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

Insecure: “Hella Disrespectful” & Season Finale “Hella Perspective”

  With the season coming to a close, it’s time to have our last check in on Issa, Molly, Lawrence, and the whole crew. It’s been a HELLA season, and there have been quite a few ups and downs for everyone involved. We gotta wonder where they left off and what might be to come next season.   Episode 7: “Hella Disrespectful” What’s the best way to stir the drama?  Put everyone in the same room at a dinner party. This week is nothing short of panic inducing stress from the tension lingering in that dining room.  Molly (Yvonne Orji) is trying to become  an equal in her work life but has to sit and...

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,...

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: Episodes 3 “Hella Open” & 4 “Hella LA”

Insecure: Episodes 3 “Hella Open” & 4 “Hella LA”

Last year left Issa a bit out in the cold, and trying to figure out how to get her game back.  Her girls gave her some hard truths to digest, and now it is up to her to work it out.  She’s ready to get back on the dating scene, or is she?  Waiting on a chance to talk to Lawrence (Jay Ellis) doesn’t exactly mean that Issa is ready to get down with someone else.  And it doesn’t seem like Lawrence is waiting around for her either.  But in the end, some couples end up finding their way back to each other. Is it possible these two really do belong together?   Episode 3: “Hella Open” Issa makes it very...

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...

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...

Issa Rae Drops Tease & Talks About INSECURE Season Two

Issa Rae Drops Tease & Talks About INSECURE Season Two

The contemporary black woman has a say on HBO (BROWN GIRLS will add to that conversation) but right now it is all Issa Rae. And she is about to offer more of her style when INSECURE returns for its eight-episode second season SUNDAY, JULY 23. Rae and her show’s cast and crew have had an opportunity to chat about what is ahead and that’s good because, as you’ll soon see, the Season Two teaser doesn’t offer us much. The folks behind INSECURE sat down with Deadline to talk about the show recently and it helped us get insight into the process. Showrunner Prentice Penny stated – “Issa and I do a thing where we go to a hotel and...
