Critic Reviews for Familiar-Like

This episode proves that Daniel and Issa are actually really good as friends.

Nov 1, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

The old flames-turned-good-friends-turned-who-the-hell-knows were looking more couple-y than I can almost ever remember Issa and Lawrence looking.

The paradox of Issa is that she feels much more confident encouraging others to go after the things they want in life than she does herself. This has been true when it comes to Lawrence, Molly and now Daniel.

Issa's role as motivator to her male partners in their professional pursuits is again, familiar from her relationship with Daniel.

Why haven't Daniel and Issa been able to make it work? Why did they even think it would work in the first place? "Familiar-like" explores these questions and let's us see their relationship from a different perspective.
