Season two brings Issa (Issa Rae) into the dating world and it couldn’t be better.
At the end of season one, Lawrence (Jay Ellis) learns that Issa cheated on him and he leaves her. They both start dating and there are many awkward encounters. The two of them and Molly (Yvonne Orji) also take big steps in their careers.
The dating endeavors are absolutely hilarious to watch – especially if you’re currently in the dating world. They work through apps and threesomes and open relationships – and all of it is extremely awkward.
What’s great about this show is that nothing is sugar coated. If situations are uncomfortable, they’ll make it that way. When situations are racist and sexist, it’s shown in its awful manner.
The season ends sadly but sets up the next season incredibly.
Final say: Better than the first. ★★★★★
