    [Georgia's] quest is often compelling, but I found myself much more captivated by the traumatic journey of Adidja, kidnapped from a village and recruited as a child soldier, exposed to violence too early. [4-17 Mar 2019, p.10]

    And yet for all of its barbed and scatological humor--be warned, there's a colonoscopy episode--there's an unvarnished honesty to Better Things that has a way of grabbing and moving you just when you least expect it. [18 Feb - 3 Mar 2019, p.15]

    Luxurious and intelligent escapism though hobbled by Palmer's less-than-bewitching blandness. Goode more than compensates with his usual grace while hinting at his inner beast. He's the ghoul to watch. [21 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, p.13]

    [Nic Pizzolatto] puts story and character first in this long-awaited comeback season. ... Even when the script takes heady philosophical detours into poetry and Einstein, it never loses sight of the toll of the investigation takes on those charged with solving the case. [7-20 Jan 2019, p.10]
