Even when the characters are hurting themselves, being petty and hypocritical, and otherwise making a mess of things, it's a pleasure to watch because so much care and thought have gone into each frame and line.

Better Things feels a bit freer to be its most audacious self this season.

The New York Times

The New York Times

The show, a semi-autobiographical depiction of Adlon's life, is still silly, touching, absurdist, invigorating. The '60s and '70s pop/rock throwbacks can still pack a gut punch at the right moment.

More than anything, Better Things captures the inevitable, irrational feeling most women have that it is always our responsibility - whether at work, at home, or out in the world - to solve the problem at hand.

Each episode feels like a compelling short story, or a collection of theme-linked tales, toggling between topics both deep and juvenile.

In the end, there's no one takeaway; there are dozens, and they're delivered with the kind of beautiful storytelling that appears effortless, but actually requires acknowledgement on levels both granular and grand.
