StarringPamela Adlon, Mikey Madison

In a world where damn near every man in Hollywood (including Better Things creator and now-former executive producer Louis C.K.) is being forced to get the f**k out of dodge, a series like Pamela Adlon’s Better Things is needed more now than ever before. Its first season was already a joy, but the second felt like a breath of fresh air. Season two walked a difficult tight-rope: the series was able to have beautiful one-off episodes addressing everything from relatives you’ve never met to how to deal with a man who quickly goes from doing sexy shit to turning into a complete pile of trash. It’s a testament to Adlon, who’s the quirky mom we all want, and the magnificent director any television series would be lucky to have. Bring on season three, with hopes for more of the realest, most foul-mouthed parenting we’ve seen in years. —khal
