The series is awesome Issa Rae started herself on YouTube, later then she created and star in her TV series which is very cool. Insecure is like one of amazing urban TV shows I ever watch such than Everybody Hates Chris, The CHI, The Parkers, Being Mary Jane, All American, Black Lightning, and Lincoln Heights. This series shows truth of everything and everyone both personal and professional

This show is phenomenal!! After the very first episode i was hooked like a crackhead on crack. The way it depicts the life of relationships between friends, lovers, family makes it so powerful that you have to watch. The way she has implemented the black culture of LA makes me want to visit there .... lol. I cant wait till Season 5 all ready!!! I guess in the meantime i'll be buying and watching past seasons to get me through til next year!

The Highs and Lows of Love. This series has a great view on Relationships. Especially when you see not everything is perfect. As the title says, she's trying hard as f***
