Hella Great: Insecure Season 2, Episode 1 Recap
Insecure - Season 2 - IMDb
The first season saw Molly warily dipping into the dating pool with little success and surviving a fractured friendship, while Season 2 finds her reluctantly exploring the benefits of therapy and seeking professional ascension as her best friend deals with her own post-breakup delusions. Yes, Lawrence is still hot, real love remains elusive for Issa and Molly, and everyone is as emotionally screwed up as ever. What do you attribute that emotional investment to? Because they recognize themselves or someone they know within these characters.
Molly shrugs her off. Now I can finally date dudes on my level. And while other series have addressed the digital rewiring of our romantic lives, Insecure is one of the rare shows to have the all-consuming culture of app-based dating baked into its narrative DNA. Molly, in particular, demonstrates the weird emotional balancing act that accompanies dating in the digital age , a simultaneous feeling of scarcity and plenty: that the reserves of eligible men are quickly depleting she is crushed when she finds out her Asian co-worker is engaged to an eligible black man , while at the same time, it would be foolish to settle when Mr. Insecure explores what happens when a modern, self-actualized career woman knocks up against rigid ideas about love and dating even when those rigid ideas are her own.
