Critic Consensus: "Better-Like" maintains the momentum of Insecure's first two seasons by exploring interpersonal struggles without losing the show's signature sense of humor.
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.
