What I’m Watching: Insecure

Insecure: Season 2, Episode 6 “Hella Blows” (B+)

Issa’s rotation is not working well at all, and she’s putting in, as she would say, hella effort. She just wants to have some fun, and a guy who won’t even make out with her on her couch because he wants to get dinner so that he can get to know her isn’t what she’s interested in at all. Telling him “no” firmly when he asked if she wanted to go to the restaurant was harsh, but at least it’s direct. Her visit to the sexposition with her friends and that class she took seemed like it was propelling her in a positive direction with Daniel, but her attempt to do something outside of her comfort zone and her normal routine ended disastrously. Walking out of Daniel’s apartment in fury was a formidable move, and getting into an Uber pool to a joke about her name while she was covering her eye was a pretty unfortunate way to end an unsatisfying night. Molly seemed to be getting used to the idea of participating in one side of an open relationship, constantly ending up back in bed with Dro, who was in the middle of showing her a great time during a bath before leaving abruptly to return to the woman he’s actually with. Lawrence is at least creating a great bond with Aparna after she made it very clear to him that the reason he wasn’t getting any feedback about his truly strong pitch was because the two guys in charge didn’t want to deliver bad news to a black guy whose shoes they kept complimenting.
