News & Interviews for Better Things: Season 4
In Better Things, Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon) has pretty much removed herself from the dating pool, freeing up the sitcom to focus on what it does best: exploring the joys and jolts in female bonding.
This is daily life. And through these beautiful moments, Adlon finds a much deeper and more resonant truth about both the coming-of-age stories of youth and the pitfalls of being middle-aged in 2020.
Sometimes people ask me to describe "Better Things," whose title is artfully evasive. It's hard to sum it up, which is one of the better things about it.
Still good? Of course - aside from a nagging sense that Sam and "Things" are standing in place. Inertia is part of the joke except that we think we already know the punchline.
Watching these episodes is an experience, and while Sam Fox stands tall as one of television's best characters, Adlon has created a vehicle around her lead unlike anything else you'll see.
Better Things captures mother/daughter relationships with a striking specificity... Every parent should let their kid be the thing they are being. I'm grateful that's the story Adlon chose to tell.
The fourth season of this excellent series was about how hard it is to let go.
Following the delightfully bizarre, sweet, and chaotic happenings of the Foxes has been a soothing balm in an increasingly uncertain time. At its core, the show is an ode to the love between a group of intensely strange women.
It's as masterful as anything else on television, yet it refuses to deliver the nasty shock that's become par for the course among its contemporaries.
It's smart, brutally funny, often extremely touching but most of all, it's honest in presenting the messy everyday of life and everything that entails.
It can be difficult to articulate just how wonderful and lovely Pamela Adlon's gem of a series is, with its big feelings and mundane slices of life.
Audience Reviews for Better Things: Season 4

Jun 01, 2020Inca foarte bun dar pe ici pe colo prea imprastiat
May 03, 2020One of the best things about this show are its realistic characters. The male representation written by Adlon is, by far, the most accurate portrayal of men I've ever seen.
May 02, 2020I absolutely love it!!
Apr 27, 2020Finally, a single mom who is relatable in every sense!
Apr 20, 2020This season has lost me after I've been an avid watcher. The daughters are written meaner with each season...credit to the actors who portray Sam's daughters because they're believably mean...discredit to the writers for making me dislike them to the point I don't want to watch anymore. Switch the focus back to the adults and leave the kids in the background instead of making them smarter than the adults.
Apr 19, 2020This show used to be a lot more enjoyable and original in the first couple seasons. Now it just turned into an ongoing rant by a narcissistic bitter woman. The acting is great though. Kudos to the young actresses playing the daughters. They are great at portraying entitled arrogant annoying teenagers.
Apr 12, 2020Pamela Adlon has created one of the best, most heartfelt, touching and addictive shows of all times. Her delicacy playing this role, and the way each character has been cast to perfection makes Better Things an experience you don't want to miss. I really hope this show goes on for many many years. Sam Fox is an inspiration.
Apr 10, 2020Great characters and acting.
Mar 26, 2020This show is the perfect combination of heart felt and hilarious. It's the best.
