Tv Season Info

The story of Sam Fox, a single mother and working actor with no filter trying to raise her three daughters -- Max, Frankie and Duke -- in Los Angeles. She also looks out for her mother, Phil, an English expatriate with questionable faculties who lives across the street. Whether she's struggling to keep her daughters close or trying to push one of them out of the nest, Sam approaches every challenge with fierce love, raw honesty, and humor. At the end of the day, Sam's just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters' changing lives, survive her family, have fun with a friend or two, and also -- just maybe -- squeeze in some private time.

Critic Reviews for Better Things: Season 4

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

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.

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.

March 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Better Things has been remarkably assured since the beginning, and it has maintained a tonal consistency amid its ups and downs. If there is a dramatic arc to the show, it has been strangely external to its contents.
