... There’s a theory that TV and film needs to always be about people with lives more interesting than our own.
The “New Orleans” episode of Better Things could not have come at a better time. Aside from having to take care of her daughters on her own and face challenges in her own career, Sam has to deal with her eccentric mother Phyllis (Celia Imrie) and her unreliable ex-husband Xander (Matthew Glaive).
Pamela Adlon's Better Things abstains from traditional sitcom sendups and forges a path all its own - in this bawdy, often hilarious and bittersweet ode to the daily highs and lows of being a single mother.

It's as if Pamela is just shoveling this out and can't be bothered to do a second draft of the script or get one more take when shooting. It was not a big league series or the actors that I know very well.
The story of women.
Aside from a nagging sense that Sam and "Things" are standing in place.
It also contains one of the best performances of the entire year from Pamela Adlon who makes even some of the smallest moments extremely impactful and very effective as does the rest of the cast who takes a little while to get to like but once they get fully settled into there roles they arguably are as good as Adlon in some aspects. Inca foarte bun dar pe ici pe colo prea imprastiat.
What were critics' favorite television shows of 2017? And the literal backdrop of their house, their livingroom, their kitchen, sets a very cozy and comfortable atmosphere that comes thru the screen. I'm betting she excuses it by saying it's more real with the imperfections left in, but it just comes across as amateurish. | Rating: 3.5/4 |, Sep 8, 2016 Wall-to-wall vaginas.…, A few things I realized watching tonight’s Better Things: 1.
Pamela Adlon's FX half-hour dramedy returns this week for a fourth season that finds the show still one of the very best things on TV — but reviewing Better Things remains a reminder that so much of what the series excels at is stuff that's consistent season-to-season and therefore doesn't always reward a critical check-in. With Better Things, [Aldon's] crafted a show about trying to have it all in Hollywood-make money, book gigs, and raise children-that somehow feels utterly original.
The feeling of intimacy and empathy in the parenting scenes remains superb, particularly during a Sam/Max argument in one episode that involves every woman’s least favorite word. One being the very brutal truth that women over a certain age are considered less desirable. It adds an occasional drip-drop to the soundtrack and stirs up nature in a way that occasionally interferes with the lives of the central Fox family.
Max (Mikey Madison) is back to living at home and working a seemingly thankless job; Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Sam are thankfully at least back to talking again; and Duke (Olivia Edward) doesn't seem to be seeing dead people again, but there are still many episodes to come. Just because she’s into combat boots and T-shirts doesn’t mean she isn’t feminine, but Sam doesn’t exude girliness.
