Season 2, Episode 8 – When I was a kid, talking smack to my mother was not allowed. In “Better Things,” Frankie doesn’t just talk smack to Sam, she insults her. And rightly so, Sam assaults her. But it’s the 2017 version of assault (calm down).
Season 1, Episode 9 – Thursday’s episode of Better Things has a strange name: “Hair of the Dog.” I don’t get it, but the episode is actually strange in the way Sam (Pamela Adlon) interacts with characters of color. Here’s a thinkpiece that you aren’t expecting. IMO. IJS.
Season 1, Episode 8 – Better Things offers us another solid episode of the quintessential mother-daughters relationship. All three kids stereotypically act their age, and Sam (Pamela Adlon) addresses each one in ways we’ve come to expect: with a combination of cussing and hugs.
Season 1, Episode 7 – “Duke’s Chorus” isn’t really about Duke’s Chorus. It’s a lesson on how to unapologetically be yourself on this episode of Better Things. This includes temporarily freeing a Mormon lady from strict religious beliefs. P.S. she cusses.
Season 1, Episode 6 – Better Things confirms why it’s such a great show – Sam. I am convinced she is a superhero. Dealing with a deadbeat baby daddy; a mother who may be a candidate for Alzheimer’s; and a best friend whose husband is cheating on her are all reasons to slap an ‘S’ on her chest.
