News & Interviews for Better Things: Season 2
Dreamier and more wistful in style but with the same caustic sense of humor, the show takes more risks with structure and technique.
One of last year's best new comedies, Better Things is darkly funny.
Adlon's whole gestalt, her black clothes and her raspy voice, her tough love and her exasperation, make the sweet beats feel like treats instead of a bellyache, like the largess of life, not the brainstorms of a clever writers' room.
Sam Fox is an absolute badass, talking the talk and walking the walk. We've never seen a character like her before, and her worldview has never been realized this clearly.
Adlon's insistence on focusing on the nuances of work, dating, parenting, and socializing gives the show a unique level of intimacy.
