Pamela Adlon's FX comedy's Thursday finale was "so incredibly well earned," says Danette Chavez. "I called Adlon a visionary at the end of season two," Chavez adds, "and season three is more evidence that her stewardship has always been more vital to the show than anyone else’s. The bite and humor remain, but Better Things also feels subtler and smarter overall this year, even when you take the toilet episode into account. All the elements have worked together in concert, especially the multiple musical moments; and even the most devastating moments immediately track once the dust settles."
