A great show can hit you right in the face and you wont even know it
1 October 2017 | by elgichuhiSee all my reviews

FX has gone to great lengths to make sure every show they produce is not only entertaining but unique in a way that you feel you haven;t watched anything like it.Pamela Adlon really pours her soul out in this show.She plays a fictionalised version of herself.A struggling actress and a single mom trying to raise 3 kids on her own. It might sound like a simple premise but its executed to near perfection.It got smart comedy,great writing,great acting and really subtle portrayal of emotion.Give this one a try and I promise you won't regret it
