News & Interviews for Better Things: Season 3
It's a season about menopause, weight gain, concern over her mother's dementia, and, most of all, motherhood in all its glory and awfulness.
You never know where an episode of "Better Things" will go, which is thoroughly refreshing. But you can always be certain it will show fierce respect for women.
Unfolds in dreamy, fragmented interludes, which layer together to form a singular, candid illustration of Adlon's life -- a rich tapestry of s----y experiences that's somehow beautified by the way she pulls it all together.
In the end, there's no one takeaway; there are dozens, and they're delivered with the kind of beautiful storytelling that appears effortless, but actually requires acknowledgement on levels both granular and grand.
"Better Things" is funny, but organically, and at times unintentionally so.
Best series currently on TV - sublime character-comedy with a wise, modern vision.
There's no end to juicy insider gossip, backstabbing and perpetual over-striving.
As good, if not better, than it was when Louis C.K. was in the writer's room, season three actually feels even more relatable than previous seasons.
Pamela Adlon is a creative force unto herself...Better Things Season 3 may be the best yet.
"Better Things" is one of TV's best sitcoms. It is heart and laughs, but simple drama at its core. In the hands of Pamela Adlon this season is poised to be even more personal and strong, letting us spend time with Sam and all her trials.
Audience Reviews for Better Things: Season 3
Apr 30, 2020Sorta fine. First couple of seasons were great, but this one just kind of lost its way. Find myself bored with most of the episodes
Apr 07, 2020This series struggles to develop some interesting storylines. It appears mixed up without direction and lacking in a coherent view. That said there are moments of magic but they are fleeting and over so quickly. There is a distinct lack of chemistry between some new characters and all to often just as an interest is peaked off we go to another hacked piece of cut and paste production. The writing seems lost at times as it strains for something that is not there.
Jan 03, 2020This show just keeps getting better. The writing and acting is amazing! I was blown away by the rawness and honesty of season three!
Sep 27, 2019So much fun comet great place to escape for an hour!
Aug 09, 2019Pamela Adlon is one of the best actresses around, and this year she ain't even got a nominee at the 2019 Emmys, this is beyond ridiculous. So spontaneous, so real, so maternal. So 100% at Rotten Tomatoes.
Jul 20, 2019Funny and relatable
Jun 25, 2019Excellent. Single motherhood 2.0. This is a fast paced 40 minute show that I wish was longer. Great episodes and it tackles hard subjects with humor.
May 31, 2019Was not perfect but very entertaining
May 30, 2019Season 1 was good, but by the time this gets to Season 3 the bathroom humor and annoying teens with their typical issues gets very played. We watched Season 1, Season 2 and couldn't make it through episode 6 of Season 3. We're done watching.
May 26, 2019What happened to this show? So many interesting - and intense - dynamics going on just within the family. And yet story lines are abandoned as quickly as they are introduced (e.g. Frankie and transgenderism). Sam spends more time in the kitchen preparing meals than she does sitting down with her kids (individually or collectively) to have real, honest discussions. Wouldn't it be cool (and refreshing!) for Better Things to follow someone else around for a day, and push Sam to the background for once? Given how Better Things doles out extended coverage of her bodily functions (colonoscopy, masturbation), it's unlikely that Sam can get past herself.
