Critic Consensus: Insecure uses star Issa Rae's breakout web series Awkward Black Girl as the basis for an insightful, raunchy, and hilarious journey through the life of a twentysomething black woman that cuts through stereotypes with sharp wit and an effusive spirit.

News & Interviews for Insecure: Season 1
What is refreshing is the friendships in this series are honest and empathetic.
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.
Audience Reviews for Insecure: Season 1
HBO's recent choices in greenlighting comedies is very dubious, Insecure is one of them. It tells the misadventure of two African American women. The jokes were really forced, almost slapstick like. I can't stand the plot (if there is one) and the language of these people. Again, critics sacrificed their integrity for the sake of "diversity".
Westworld is cool and all but Insecure is the show I look forward to the most each week! Refreshing as F**k!
