"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.

Adlon outgrew her old creative partner, though obviously, the latter is a much happier development.
