Well-written and acted series that's worth your attention
Issa Rae has done a wonderful job writing and playing the lead character in "Insecure." I think this is a very well-written show with an engaging ensemble cast. The characters feel real and relatable, even though they are all much younger and hipper than me! I am 48 and live on the opposite coast, yet I felt that I had experienced many of the same things that Issa, Molly and their friends have in this series: the confusing romantic and sexual connections, the frustrating career experiences, the self-doubt and, most importantly, the benefit of good friendships. I caught "Insecure" one night on HBO and was instantly engaged. It's entertaining and stylishly produced as well. I really like the way the show has expanded to explore Molly's and Lawrence's characters in depth along with Issa's complex experiences and character development.
Confession: I struggled to get through a couple of seasons of HBO's "Girls" because it was always being praised in the media, and I hated it. "Insecure" is vastly superior. I can't wait for the new season.
