Adlon comes as close to a pure auteur as TV gets. That her story is one imbued with both sadness and light makes Better Things one of television's very best shows-in any genre.

Adlon's insistence on focusing on the nuances of work, dating, parenting, and socializing gives the show a unique level of intimacy.

The kind of deep-focus character work that Better Things is centered on only grows more potent as we spend more time with its characters. But I still wasn't quite prepared for just how good, and thoughtful, and effortless season two would feel.

This was a great show in that first year. It's even greater now.

Dreamier and more wistful in style but with the same caustic sense of humor, the show takes more risks with structure and technique.
