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.

[Issa] Rae has a way of making even the most mundane of activities interesting, and there's a relatable sincerity present that should not be missed.
Rae, a charisma- and intelligence-exuding beauty with a relatable T-shirt-and-Converse style, and co-stars Yvonne Orji (as Issa's best friend, Molly) and Jay Ellis (as Issa's boyfriend, Lawrence) handle this journey with great skill.
It doesn't take long to be drawn into the lives of Issa and Molly and their world. The writing is witty, original and authentic, the characters are engaging and you really want to see them find happiness. It all makes for a great comedy.
It's bold, smart, wildly entertaining, and unapologetic. I'm here for every last bit of it.
Audience Reviews for Insecure: Season 1
Westworld is cool and all but Insecure is the show I look forward to the most each week! Refreshing as F**k!
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".
