Critic reviews for Fresh-Like

I loved that this episode really narrowed in on these two women and a new level of growth.

When Frieda comes over to talk to Issa about her new assignment to a middle school, Issa has just...had enough. She says she can't do it anymore and quits. Wow. Didn't exactly see that coming. I mean, sure, kinda. But maybe not that abruptly.

We spend far too long watching Issa talk with Nathan...but it drags out way longer than it should and ends up becoming egregiously boring rather than tender.

Daniel who? Sunday's Insecure sent Issa on an impromptu first date that was so flirt-tastic, I almost didn't notice that the episode didn't give us any Kelli.

"Fresh-like" feels like the start of a new Insecure that's no longer focused on world building and is finally telling Issa's story.

In between the fun the pair is having together, Issa also feels vulnerable about the fact that she is passionate about rapping and that she cheated on her ex. *squeals* I've never seen our girl like this, and I'm honestly shook!
