Fall is by far my favorite season. At least in the Midwest, it’s the best weather of the year, the re-introduction of cozy clothes, the start of college football season (Go Hawks!), time for pumpkin spice everything AND last but certainly not least, the start of the new TV season!
While many of my favorite shows don’t start for a few more weeks, I’m excited about the new FX show Better Things. (And I’m really excited that you could win the great giveaway at the end of this post!)
It’s been a while since I’ve looked forward to a new comedy, and this one has all the makings of the next best comedy with its star Pamela Adlon as a mom of teens and an actress juggling single parenthood, working mom life, and the dating scene. FX describes her as “mom, dad, referee and the cops!” You may know Adlon from Californication or Louis CK’s Lucky Louie. With Aldon and Louis CK as co-creators of Better Things, we may be looking at comedy gold!
I watched the premier last Thursday night and I think this show has huge potential. Great cast and also some great cameos, plus quick witted and relatable humor. If you’re a mom, you’ll get her! If I’d been drinking a glass of wine (next time!) I would have raised my glass in cheers to these great one liners!
1| While school supply shopping, “I mean, this place is like a pre-apocalyptic nightmare.” Anyone who has ever been school supply shopping can relate!
2| When her daughter is wanting to share her teenage rebellion, “These things are normal but you should be ashamed of them.” As much as we want our kids to be honest with us about what they’re doing, we really would prefer they just always do the right thing! Can’t we just live in our dream world?!
3| When she lays down with her youngest daughter, just for a minute, “I swear to God, if your little baby hands touch me, I’ll fall asleep and I’ll be in a lot of trouble.” We have this situation almost every single night and call it the “Carter Coma”.
When the show ended, it had me wishing it was an hour instead of a half hour! If you missed the first episode, you can watch the full episode on FXNetworks.com.
