Critic reviews for Better-Like

"Insecure" is as "Insecure" was - only better in some ways, deeper in others.

Better-Like is a great premiere episode (the first 30 seconds!) and I hope Molly and Issa are truly able to make better, smarter choices this season.

Insecure is the quintessential summer show, like a broken-in pair of espadrilles you can always slip back into the moment the weather gets warm enough.

Rae is concerned with representation and identity in all its messy, awkward truth; she's not concerned with virtue signaling or teachable moments or talking to a nonblack audience

It's been a hot minute since HBO's Insecure was last on our screens. Thankfully, showrunner/star Issa Rae and co are back to bless us with another dope soundtrack, witty one-liners and a whole lot of messy drama. We wouldn't expect anything less.

A candid glimpse into the personal lives of young black professionals, reveling in the small moments and relatable repetitiveness of adulthood.
