Morris Chestnut plays her FBI “minder” who could benefit from a few hours of anger-management training.

Can we talk?
In the third season of “Better Things,” creator and star Pamela Adlon still has some insightful observations about dating, sexism in the workplace and divorce. But the series is at its best when it showcases the sharply written — and often sharp-tongued — conversations between her character and her three very different children.
