    Insecure is probably the best new show since Power came out. The character Molly is a modern day Toni Childs!

    I watch 2 out of 3. I went to the same university as the actress playing Molly and we talked a few times back then, not really as friends but we'd occasionally run into one another due to mutual friends. Haven't watched Chewing Gum. Haven't watched Power either though I hear family members get excited about it.

    I watch Insecure and watched a bit of Chewing Gum. I don't have cable so I'd have to buy Atlanta on Amazon Instant Video but you know, the way my bank account is setup...

    Atlanta is not at all what I thought it was going to be.It's so wonderfully unglamourous and relatable.The ep when Paper Boy was on the news/talk program is my favorite.It rocks so hard.

    I had a feeling it was going to be a different kind of show. Really, I didn't know what to expect, which is cool when entertainment actually pleasantly surprises me. When Donald Glover left Community and posted those emotional notes online, it seemed like whatever he did next would be less silly. Well, he also had that small part in Magic Mike XXl and a few other minor roles, but when Atlanta got announced and he seemed HIGHLY involved and the marketing was revealed with it's unusual vibe and non-hip-hop music, it seemed like he was going to defy expectations and put out something a bit personal.

    I'm starting to think FX is good about letting their content creators work and create as they need to.He and Louis CK seem to have a lot of free reign with how they express themselves.Maybe they have enough clout to earn this,idk,but the results have been standouts.

    You're the Worst on FXX is fairly odd for TV too and it was created by a relative no-name so maybe they support anyone whose work they or the public/critics like. Fargo is cool and weird but it's no surprise that a show executive produced by the Coen Brothers is allowed to be offbeat. It's interesting how often their shows run past the usual episode lengths rather than stopping at a half-hour or hour point. Shows ending at times like 10:37 or 11:20 PM, throwing things off if I'm planning to change the channel at a standard time. I think they want to be basic cable's HBO.

    You are definitely missing out with Power. Chewing Gum is hilarious. It's a bit awkward at first but when you warm up to the characters you will not stop laughing

    I turned my cable off. I watch all of these shows on my Chromecast and downloaded an app called "RocketCast" where you can stream ANYTHING to your TV. I've saved $120 each month

    It's actually a matter of principle for me... I make an effort to always pay for black content when I can. I decided to stay in on a saturday instead of going out and binged Atlanta. Loved the thought-provoking themes throughout that made me reflect even after watching, especially Black American Network lmfao

    @King Zorro yo, Insecure season 1 was amazing!!!

    A few things- who says nice guys finish last? Did you see Lawrence try to shatter that chick's pelvis? All I'm saying.

    :salute:

    Also, is self-sabotage that real? Holy crap "I-should-have-just-settled-for-you" Molly!! Hot damn pile-driven-by-an-itch-you-had-to-scratch Issa!! Sweet Jesus don't let me turn into that.

    I love Molly though because I can relate to her. If she wasn't a mess, there would be no show. And the way that he was tearing her up like that........My jaw dropped. You can hear it clapping and all that lol

    I disagree. I think Molly should have just given ol boy a chance. She was 'red flag hunting' all because he wasn't a 6 figure dude.

    Yet, he never asked her for a dime, and had his own place, that she kept crawling back to.

    But honestly, coming from her standpoint, I can relate. She's successful, fly and educated and he settled for a Enterprise job, lowkey got head from a dude, proud to be uneducated and he was short lol

    I tried Atlanta but just can't. I love Insecure. I have not seen Chewing Gum but a friend of mine off this site here in ATL says it is good black Euro content.

    I love that Being Mary Jane, Power, and Greenleaf will be back next year!

    Why does he have to be 'uneducated' just because he doesn't have 20 yrs of college debt to pay off?

    Not to mention, she's the one who kept running back to him.

    Does she want a good dude, or does she want a dude who has a PhD? Not saying that they can't be synonymous, but if he has his own, what's the problem?

    Epitome of ppl getting in their own way. Soo tired of ppl acting as if a dude's professional title is more important than how he treats you.

    The beauty of Molly is, that she doesn't know what she wants. It makes the show more interesting and relatable. Trust me, Jared is a good dude in my eyes and the one he was tearing her kitty up, I would've kept him. But when you are successful or have your fair amount of success, you want someone who is the same. For example, I work in Finance and I dated a guy who worked at a Pizza shop, the chemistry and sex was AMAZING but I couldn't relate to him. I couldn't talk stocks or business with him like I wanted to. Whenever we went to a business networking event, I always had to tell him how to act or what to say or give him confidence to let him know he is important too. When you have money, confidence and amazing social skills, you want someone who has the same.
