Audience Reviews for Better Things: Season 2

    Season 1 was amusing in patches. Season 2 is pure rubbish. Misandry on the march.
  • Apr 20, 2020
    It is funny like 15% of the time. But most of it got boring quick....so this 96% at the moment is ridiculous. It repetitive as hell....and really you can only watch those two annoying teenage faces for so long.
  • May 10, 2019
    How this gets 96% ?. Mostly dead boring with endless unfunny banality bla bla. There are rare moments it's funny but its too sparse to be considered a good comedy show.
  • Apr 12, 2019
    Got to admit it's getting better ¿ Getting better all the time

    One of my most love TV series. Witty, honest,often hilarious, great self deprecating humor, and often tender; kudos to the writers. I thoroughly en`joyed seasons 1 & 2. So thrilled for the upcoming 3rd season. I wonder, am I the only one who literally sobbed with tears of joy while watching the 2nd season finale episode? It was a bit odd but tremendously touching and poignant.

    Some of the longer episodes drag but it is still great television.
  • Mar 12, 2018
    Adlon is great. Funny and interesting to watch.

    While Better Things had a solid debut season, it really comes to find its voice in this sterling second year. Realizing the show is just as much about her daughters' fictional counter-points as her own, Pamela Adlon offers much richer characterizations for her trio of young co-stars this year, and it's hard to think of another tv series since Malcolm in the Middle that has had such an ingenious representation of the youngest-middle-oldest sibling dynamic. The writing is indelibly sharp too, as just like Louie the show is as precious as it is hilarious, and it's captured in a way that's simply beautiful on every level. In a year with no new seasons for Atlanta or Louie, FX subscribers that appreciate more subversive comedies with a knack for subtlety will find all they desire here, in Better Things.

    Raw, Honest and On Point.

    Almost every beat is perfect.
