Critic reviews for Better-Like

I am still 100% positive that Dro is breaking at least some of the rules that he and Candice have agreed upon for their marriage because he and Molly are in a full-fledged relationship.

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.

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

Issa Rae and the rest of the geniuses behind the scenes at Insecure have been able to bottle feelings up and administer them to viewers in huge doses over the course of 30 minutes. It's simple, and sometimes basic, but it works.

The show still revels in the discomfort of watching Issa, Molly and others make questionable life choices, as well as the small relief that comes when they succeed at even the most minor interactions.

Despite its status as one of TV's sharpest, funniest and raciest comedies, HBO's Insecure has a pitch-dark existential streak running right through its heart.
