Mom life can be fun, it can be loving, it can be chaotic and at times downright scary! Most television shows make being a mom seem glamorous and easy. Everything gets wrapped up in a pretty little package in one episode or some take daily drama and drag it out into the realm of unreality. There are very few shows that come across with all of the ups and downs, highs and lows that you get every single day as a mom. The new FX show Better Things is different though, it takes a look at the reality of mom life.
The new show Better Things is a new comedy series on FX co-created by Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K. It stars Pamela Adlon as “Sam Fox,” a single, working actor with no filter trying to raise her three daughters – “Max” (Mikey Madison), “Frankie” (Hannah Alligood) and “Duke” (Olivia Edward) – in Los Angeles. She is mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, “Phil” (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in a while.
As someone who has been a teen mom, single mom and married mom, I love finding a show that takes you through the whole gamut of mom life. I know in my experience as a mom I can relate to a lot of the clips from the show. Come on who here has dealt awkward conversations with your kid, or needed to find a way to vent or just couldn’t figure out when those lines and wrinkles popped up and wondered if it was somehow due to the kids?
