Better with You 1.12 “Better with a Cat” Review

This week provided a below average episode from the most obviously mediocre sitcom currently on television. Honestly, I’m really not hard to please when it comes to comedy - all I need is something that’ll make me laugh (anything beyond that comes as extra). At this point, though, it’s definitely not 100% guaranteed that any given episode of Better with You will actually succeeding in bringing about laughter (that it’ll raise a smile is still usually probable).
