Real Life is funnier than fiction
9 October 2016 | by yossarian100See all my reviews

Great comedy is real comedy, and this is as real as it gets.

Pamela Adlon plays one of the best "Moms" I can remember. She seems tired, dragging a bit....you know....just like real moms. And she's sarcastic in a way that cracks me up. I love her.

The kids are fresh and unlike most TV kids. They're as real as kids get, too.

In episode 5, Sam's oldest daughter discovers she's wasted her opportunities and worries that her life will go nowhere. Those lines and her delivery made me cry. Sam takes her to try on business clothes and gives her a pep talk, which also made me cry.

Yeah, real comedy is real life.

Better Life might not be for everybody, though. If you're looking for dumb jokes and mindless humor, you won't care for this.

This is one of the best sitcoms I can remember seeing. Outstanding job by all!
