Critic Reviews for American Crime Season 3

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (20)

This anthology series may be the best dramatic show on broadcast television these days, daring as it does to work with both nuance and timely topicality.

This season is the starkest and grimmest yet with its depictions of migrant worker and teen girl trafficking.

Top Critic

American Crime manages to sidestep well-worn arguments about immigration and other hot-button topics with a set of compelling, interlocking stories that challenge viewers to see in new ways the people we so often manage not to see at all.

It feels like one story is beginning as another ends, which would be a slightly new trick for American Crime, and one more reason fans would have to stick around.

Another brilliant, powerful, moving season of one of TV's best.

I was thoroughly invested, and deeply impressed once again by show creator John Ridley's ambition. Gradually, the plots begin to connect more clearly, and we begin to see how all the social problems that Ridley has set loose are linked.

While these stories might not be ripped from the headlines, the subject matter and performances feel all too real.

Dec 26, 2017 | Full Review…

This season is as big a step up over season two as season two was over season one. It's grandly ambitious and socially conscious in a way that broadcast network TV dramas rarely are anymore.

Dec 26, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

While certainly exposing the plight of undocumented workers, the drug epidemic among rural teens, and the realities the sex trade, this season seems to be more about the ways in which we, as a society, have forced people to be trapped.

Dec 26, 2017 | Full Review…

In its sprawl, in its empathy for characters from all social spheres, and in its political fury, the new season may be the closest thing I've seen to The Wire.

Audience Reviews for American Crime: Season 3

    Loved it! This show is amazing! the actors are so versatile and it's interesting to see them play different roles. The storylines of this season were captivating. I enjoyed Regina King's storyline the most.

    Excellent series, in the middle of Season 3. Love Regina King. Love, love,love!!!

    American Crime does not leave you baffled by its ending… Yes you will be surprised, but the story is so compelling you await the next step and not the finale (this isn’t Big Little Lies). With any level of sensitivity you are forced to ponder every character’s situation and most likely judge thereafter. With regards to current issues, American Crime will someday be recognized as the most socially conscience - remaining thought provoking and worth while show in the history of television.

    have seen the other 2 seasons and loved them and season 3 fell sub party the previous 2 season. there was also only episodes. very little suspense and too much dialogue.

    The acting is usually good and the individual plots are for the most part strong, but because of the multiple threads, neither the plots nor the characters are developed much. A bit over-orchestrated and at times too close to being a soap-opera, and the final scene is simply both too easy and too heavy. The plots involve overlapping characters, but the plots do not interlock, and the result is a strong sense of authorial manipulation in creating a theme. This sense becomes overwhelming when all of the accused from each thread are brought together, by complete coincidence, before the same judge on the same day, in the same courtroom. I liked many of the scenes, but each of the plots could have become a separate film. Collecting them together and interweaving them seemed to have little purpose--they did not comment on each other. In each, the victimized are further victimized and the bad folks are caught and may or may not be redeemed. That last part is the most worrisome. The shows sympathies really seemed to be more with the middle-class and well-to-do than with the victims, since much more screen time was given to them, and the script as concerned with questions over the saving of their marriages as with the deaths and disfigurement of the victims.

    Just finished season 3 after finding the other two years on Netflix. Simply the best network drama series (ABC) in years if not decades. Brutally honest portrayal of moral dilemmas in American life. Writing, acting and directing are superb. Warning: No Hollywood endings.

    Best show on network TV! Excellent cast, subject matter is relevant, writing is top-notch.....hope this show goes on for a very long time.
  • May 09, 2017
    This is the only television series that not only touches on but digs deep into so many sensitive, shunned, and simply ignored topics in every episode that many people in our country choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear on; but should be discussed on a daily basis.. I love this show, along with it's accuracy on race relations, ethnic prejudices, immigration, addictions, sexual preferences, and social economic prejudices and the stigmas placed by society against them.

    American Crime is a vehicle for performances and storytelling, like most films and television shows should be, but don't always deliver. This show delivers the performances and storytelling to the MAXIMUM! Well done, ABC. Well done indeed.
  • May 01, 2017
    One of the best show on! I wish it had more episodes.
