Reality of Grandiose TV and film industry
Better Things is new in its genre where it depicts the ordinary lives of those celebrities who work in the showbiz. Stars are often shown as glamorous individuals with high profile lifestyle yet what the media leaves out is that stars are ordinary people too whose got kids of their own.
This new comedy series brings a refreshing take on mother-daughter relationships. What also excels in Better Things is that it is realistic without being too cheesy or maudlin. Lots of actors and actresses nowadays are divorced and this series shows what comes in between camera and laundry. We don’t really know what to expect yet of Better Things Season 2 but we still welcome all those witty lines and cute mother-daughter scenes.
Even though the next Better Things Season 2 is still more than half a year away, there are other similar series that are female-friendly. Amazon’s Fleabag starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge is sure to bring you laughs from its honest performances and great humor.
