    Molly’s starting a new job at an all-black law firm, a utopian-seeming office with its own brand of workplace politics. She’s still seeing Dro (Sarunas J. Jackson), Mr. Open Marriage, so that’s another It’s Complicated. Insecure juggles these complications marvelously, blending swoony-sexy swagger with laugh-out-loud comedy. The four episodes I’ve seen push the central characters to moments of change, some minor, some life-altering.

    Insecure has always been a half-hour series that goes down smooth but doesn’t shy away from the real, and in the episodes I’ve seen, it hits those marks this season with even more assuredness.

    Together Issa and Molly make enough mistakes to keep Insecure spicy, fun and refreshingly real.

    The show doesn't need to be the second coming of Sex and the City, but its most carbonated moments are when Issa and Molly spar with acerbic hedonist Kelli, one of TV's few zaftig sexual goddesses, and bourgie blonde arriviste Tiffany (Amanda Seales).

    The important thing to know about this season: Issa is pushing forward. Insecure shows life never stops being a work in progress.

    Issa pointedly says in Episode 2 that she doesn’t want to be the voice of all black people--and while that’s resulted in less bold, creative choices so far, it doesn’t mean they won’t be coming. If Issa’s “mirror bitch” is given more chances to make an appearance, all these little moments could add up to something major.

    The first four episodes of Season Three (it premieres Sunday) are more relaxed and confident than anything it’s done to date, and it already felt like one of TV’s most self-assured hangouts.

    It is so Honest and funny. I am a bit disappointed with some of the cast being cut out though.

Of course, the show's greatest feat would be its writing, characters, and their lives, all intertwined beautifully and swiftly. Expand
