Insecure: Season 3 Reviews

October 1, 2018
"Ghost-Like" is an amazing finale. Sadly, it comes at the end of an oddly paced season that leaves things feeling rushed.

The stories it's telling are compelling, and the laughs are coming as quickly as ever.
September 13, 2018
Insecure's willingness to follow the narrative arc of a beloved character and allow them to fade into the background is a move that many shows do not have the confidence to make.
August 27, 2018
"Insecure" has never felt more confident.
August 24, 2018
Issa Rae has managed to keep the show focused on magnifying the small details of daily life. We enjoy following these characters because many of their trials are our own, and at the same time they capture African American life in modern America.
August 23, 2018
It's very smart and incisive about a lot of things, and it's also serving up beautiful heart, this is a show about economic struggle, and dating, and Los Angeles, but it's really a show about female friendship.
August 17, 2018
Beautifully observed, wry, intelligent comedy.

This is Insecure, which never loses sight of the fact that its grown-ups are stumbling through life like wobbly legged Bambis.
August 14, 2018
Molly and Issa aren't those girls anymore, but they're not the people they want to be quite yet, either. That space in between is what Insecure is so good at exploring, and season three is stronger than ever.
August 13, 2018
Creator/star Issa Rae and her writers make every note of the series feel warm, fresh and lovely.
August 13, 2018
The sumptuous, symmetrical overhead shots of South L.A., the impeccably curated soundtrack, the effortless chemistry between cocreator-star Issa Rae and her costar Yvonne Orji-everything is right back where we left it.
August 13, 2018
Issa, the character, may still be on the cusp of coming into her own. But Issa Rae and her HBO series are already there.
August 10, 2018
Issa's such a well-drawn character at this point that she doesn't have to be doing much for it to be appealing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 10, 2018
The important thing to know about this season: Issa is pushing forward. Insecure shows life never stops being a work in progress.

August 10, 2018
The show toggles between devastatingly funny and quietly poignant with unflappable ease, and its performances and music direction continue to be some of the very best on television.
August 9, 2018
Surreal touches have become a staple of the HBO comedy.

In the absence of an elaborate story, it is Rae's talent for crafting authentic dialogue and relationships that makes Insecure special.
August 1, 2018
Insecure juggles these complications marvelously, blending swoony-sexy swagger with laugh-out-loud comedy.

October 5, 2018
By short-changing the dynamic that has drawn viewers in the first place - the caring, complicated friendship between Issa and Molly - that leaves the show with a hollow center it needs to address going forward.
