I just watched the first episode of Better Things, the new FX series that sheds light on those days when you’re sleep-deprived and overwhelmed – and feeling maybe… perhaps… a little less than your best. It follows a trendy L.A Mom (just like you and me) and her daily struggles trying to make life happen for her and three young kids. I was hooked 10 seconds into the show. I don’t have a three kids, let alone a teenager but I could totally see bits and pieces of myself through her character. You can check out up to two full episodes here: https://ooh.li/a0b0d4f
Did you watch it? Are you hooked?!
What did you relate to?
I could totally relate to the first scene where she is letting her youngest daughter cry and throw a tantrum over earrings. She is showing tough love but then shows another side by offering to buy her a snack. The scene was funny and endearing!
and, how about the scene where she is driving with her teenage daughter and Max, the daughter turns around and asks mom to buy her weed. Her exact words were, “don’t you want me to have clean, organic pot?” Wow! I wouldn’t know what to say. I would secretly be thinking that I don’t want her to smoke pot but if she did, I would prefer it to be clean and organic. ha!
I also loved the daughters names. Duke, Frankie and Max. How cool is that?!
Seriously, check out the show now! Watch it here: https://ooh.li/a0b0d4f
