What I’m Watching: Insecure

Insecure: Season 4, Episode 2 “Lowkey Distant” (B+)

I’m glad to see that Issa and Condola found a way to move past the awkwardness of them both having dated the same man, though that opened up a whole new can of worms with Issa sharing information about Lawrence that Condola hadn’t yet learned. Showing up at her house to talk to her and ask her to not have him be the subject of conversation was a bit of a surprise, and her calling him to ask if she should mention that they spoke means that they now have this secret relationship that might ultimately come back to haunt them. I like that Lawrence’s friend chastised him for not picking up the caterer at a baby shower since he could have seen this coming. As great as Issa and Condola’s dynamic is now, Molly isn’t at all happy about it since she doesn’t approve of their friendship and it means that she’s spending less solo time with her very busy friend. She also found that her efforts to get Andrew to open up rather than just having sex or going out all the time backfired, with him leaving because she made everything into an issue. Issa’s arrangement is much more casual, but it does seem like it’s not particularly working for her. I enjoyed her analysis of how what they were doing was uncomfortable, but good uncomfortable, and her skill in finding the condom with a mirror. Needing to press his “booty button” was definitely a bit much, and that’s just not what she needs or wants right now.
