Critic Consensus: Stuck between a hard rock and a tight space, Issa is forced to balance the woes of adulting while defining what she wants out of life.
Critic reviews for Familiar-Like
This episode proves that Daniel and Issa are actually really good as friends.
It's not a particularly insightful or intriguing episode but holds steady in its delivery of dramatic as well as comedic content.
In Familiar-Like, Kelli tells Issa she's not financially ready to move out on her own yet, but this news isn't as disappointing now that she and Daniel are vibing.
Issa doesn't want to play the role of the Angry Black, but they tell her that's the way things are. The onus is on her to speak up about Blackness the same way they have to cape for queerness and white feminism.
"Familiar-Like" was also a beautiful reminder of why we love Issa, why fine ass men like Daniel are drawn to her, and why so many of us feel like she is just as much of a friend to us as she is to Molly.
