Can we take a minute to appreciate HBO’s comedy show Insecure!?
The season just ended and we are freaking out! Like what just happened…
This entire season was Real as F*ck (which happens to be the title of her 7th episode) and that just about sums up this season.
Issa Rae who is the brains behind this hit show is also the leading actress.
This show follows the life of Issa as she tries to figure out her life whether it’s dealing with her job at a non-profit organization for kids of color, her long term relationship with her boyfriend Lawrence, her friends Molly and sorority sisters, and just trying to decide what it is that she wants to do with her life.
We are there with her on every part of that journey.
This show uses Issa’s breakout web series Awkward Black Girl as the basis for a real, vulnerable, and hilarious journey through the life of a ‘twentysomething’ black woman that cuts through stereotypes usually perceived or portrayed.
She is not afraid to go there with what she says and how her character feels. It’s certain that everyone has at least one point in their life wondered what their life would be like if they chose a different path or stepped outside of their comfort zone. By allowing her character to show real raw emotion and share thoughts that many might not EVER say out loud allows her audience to really connect.
Insecure is a look into real issues that black women face that no one may never really understand unless you are in fact BLACK. This show resonates with black women because it’s not showing black women playing stereotypical roles but roles of power and in situations that are well…REAL! If you loved the early 2000 hit show Girlfriends then you should defiantly catch up with this show on HBO.
