News & Interviews for Insecure: Season 1
It's an honest, unflinching look at dating, relationships and life, told from a refreshing and hilarious perspective.
Clearly rooted in experience, Insecure finds the funny in Issa's spirited -- often raunchy -- chats with her best pal (Yvonne Orji), and in scenes where she raps out confidence-building affirmations in front of her bathroom mirror.
Rae has produced a series that feels revolutionary just by poking fun at the life of an average, twentysomething black woman.
Issa the character may be a work in progress, but the woman writing and playing her knows exactly what she's doing.
The characters get more and more likable, and the balance between comedy and drama is perfectly tuned in that we laugh but also get to know these people.
The new HBO show Insecure is anything but. It is smart, funny, alive and complex and seems to know precisely what it wants to be.
Insecure is indeed a much-needed oasis, and we're all the better for Issa Rae's mirror raps.
Beyond moments of brilliant writing, standout acting, and skilled direction, the show represents something that feels like a bigger, more intangible exaction -- an expression of creative freedom rarely granted to black artists.
Insecure may not necessarily be blazing trails in its storytelling, but it's hard to deny the freshness of its style.
While her onscreen proxy is barely holding it together, Rae bears the burden of running Insecure with ease, finding a fresh perspective and flawlessly expanding upon the world of her Internet series with wit and refinement to spare.
Insecure is not "trying to tell every black woman's story," Rae says-an obviously impossible task, but one that nonwhite TV creators commonly face.

Mar 02, 2018Maybe I'm just too old, but I don't like this show at all. I tried really hard because of all the hype, but after three episodes I was out. She lives a life I have no ability to understand.
Feb 07, 2018one of the shortest TV series to come out in a while but rising star Issa Rae utilizes her comedic timing and charisma to great effect lots of laughs and simple drama covering the life of an average black woman in America while rustling through the many stereotypes, misconceptions, and oxymorons Issa plays a woman with a great boyfriend, a best friend, a great job and a strong passion for rapping a lot of it pours from the stuff going on in her personal life; some of it affects her in unique ways, other times it tears it down significantly in this part of California Issa is a woman trying to stabilize love, work, and her happiness all the other players are very likeable and each carry their own brand of personal issues that this woman doesn't know about the finale is sad to say the least but even a journey like hers doesn't end immediately a raunchy, laugh-filled and insightful first season
