Insecure season 2 kicked off on Sunday and…
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Issa Rae is truly a treasure.
So season one: We get to know Issa’s world. Her friends, her relationship, and the dynamics of both. Even though Insecure was becoming its own thing, I couldn’t help but compare it to Awkward Black Girl, an ABG 2.0, if you will.
But now, in season 2, Insecure definitely feels like its own entity. Where each of the characters has a niche in the world that they occupy and cope with.
Shout out to Dustin from The Friend Zone podcast! When I saw his face in the trailer, I screamed like a boy band stan and I’m not ashamed of it.
Issa’s out here dating, trying to get back into the swing of things after her break up with Lawrence. But dating, quite honestly, is much. She’s doing that “where are you from/what do you do” bullshit and I was cringing for her.
Meanwhile life don’t stop and Molly, Issa’s bestie, finds out this white nigga makes more than her at the law firm that they’ve both been at for the same amount of time. I get my life when she checked that bitch at the dinner party and reminded Trevor (or whatever the fuck) of his white and male privilege.
She’s still not fully feeling this therapy shit yet though.
And last but not least, Lawrence.
I really don’t know how to feel about him yet. I really don’t.
He trash as fuck for leaving that raggedy ass shirt in the closet and taking the pillow. And him and that girl Tasha… I just…
She needs to sit the fuck down somewhere.
Of course, the fun didn’t end with the season premiere. The internet and its commentary made for lots of fun.
Say what you want about Charlemagne, but the nigga is good for a laugh.
I see where his allegiance lies. Typical.
All in all – that was a damn good premiere. In the coming weeks, I look forward to Issa’s hoe-ventures and hang-ups. This is gonna be a wild one.
