User Reviews

 
Another solid season
22 January 2019 | by sandramoreillaSee all my reviews

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.
