Enter To Win a FX Network "Better Things" Swag Bag #BetterThings #BetterThingsGiveaway 1

Better Things,  a new comedy series from Pamela Adlon and Louis CK, premiered last week on FX. For my 80’s peeps out there, Pamela played Kelly on Facts of Life back in the day. Pamela Adlon is “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.

Better Things is a show that I can relate to on so many levels.

Top 3 relatable scenes:

  1. Unclogging the toilet. I have boys, so hearing “Mom, I clogged the toilet” happens on a daily basis in my house.
  2. Daughter tweezing her Mom’s chin, yeah, not proud but that happens and it’s hilarious when her daughter asking if it’s going to happen to her and she tells her no. Hah!
  3. Chasing a dog in the middle of night down the street, I’ve done that with a cat, so yeah.

 I may not be a single Mom like Sam, but having kids of my own and feeling her pain in some of the scenes is just a  universal Mom thing, we all “get” it. I really enjoyed the first show, and am looking forward to following Sam and her kids as they get through life.

Take look……..

  1. I can totally relate to chasing a dog down the street! Our dog got out one day when I was chaperoning a field trip to the pool, we were walking to the park and I had to turn around chase and catch our dog and take him home and then catch up to my son’s class .

  2. I can totally relate to the Rude Awakening clip. My dog is always waking me up with her scratching or gnawing at her skin. Ugh.

  3. The Smoke detector, My nephew decided to cook dinner, burnt something in the cast iron skillet. The smoke alarms went off. Even the neighbors showed up. Took a hour for the smoke to clear.

  4. I dont have kids myself but i have a niece and cousins and when they cry I just let them cry and keep going, lol. But i dont think ill ever explain to strangers they dont need an explanation.

  5. I just became a single mom myself (well, let’s be honest; I’ve always been a single mom, lol. Ex husband was never around and never helped anyways). My daughter is only 5, but I foresee moments just like these in my future!

  6. I can relate to the “Smoke Detector” clip. We have smoke detector problems on occasion and I can see my family panicking like they did in the clip also!

  7. I like the smoke detector clip. I think its funny and familiar that she is unaware of how many friends her teen has over and when they got their.

  8. Definitely falling asleep with my 5 year old daughter! I know better than to lay there like that but it Never Fails! I ALWAYS fall into the TRAP, LOL.

  9. I can relate to the dropping the purse scene. It doesn’t happen all the time, but I have to get used to carrying a purse since I haven’t used one in a very long time

  10. #BetterThings Swag Bag – ends 9/29 #BetterThingsGiveaway #sponsored Smoke detector for sure.We have a running joke with my wife, its a smoke detector not an oven timer……

  11. Season 1 Episode 2 “Period”. OMG, this character is my twin! So can totally relate to many episodes but this one especially! The chin hairs! HAHA

  12. There are lots of things I can relate to in this series. Bed Eye really does capture how it feels to be so desperate for just a little more rest that you are afraid to even stir a muscle. My kids are eternal interrupters and rest is a precious commodity. I also liked Dr.’s Office– Being in a gown on the table and dealing with your own health can be difficult and this really captured how it can feel. Lots of funny and real moments.

  13. Big fan of Louis CK! Can so relate to the smoke detector one! I have a broom nearby so I can hit it if I set it off! 🙂

  14. I love the clip Pillow! Every parent has wanted to scream in their pillow a time or two!
    Plus the clip Period is a riot! I’ve walked into a mess and my kids have said you weren’t supposed to be home yet! Looks like a funny show!
