Critics Consensus

Muddled and unsatisfying, Bloodline's final season offers disappointing proof that a stellar cast can only carry a series for so long.

Audience Reviews for Bloodline: Season 3

  • Jun 22, 2021
    [*plot spoilers*] I recently re-watched this entire series. Having the time and attention to dive to its depths made me wonder where my head was the first time I watched it, on its original release. My feelings about it at that time were pretty much in line with the reviews here: the first season was taut and exciting, but the rest felt like and exercise in agony, watching a train wreck in slow motion. I thought it had become a teeth-grinder with no payoff. The series is really less about excitement, explosions, and suspense than it is the anatomy - or maybe more of a post-mortem dissection - of a family built on violence and untruths. It's watching how exactly the personalities raised on those two flimsy foundations undo themselves, and how the family as a whole undoes itself. The writing is psychologically right-on, never hitting a false note - and that, in itself, is a huge accomplishment in any cinematic offering, no less one that spans 33 episodes. The environmental parallel is wonderful: the house itself - the symbol of the family - is of no value by the end of the story, because it will be underwater in 10 years. In case we missed it, this locates the experience of this family as the average that it is, by placing it in the context of the real, crumbling culture and the real, dying world that is the casualty of that culture. Additionally, and reminiscent of Road to Perdition, John, who shoulders the family burdens, has the opportunity for redemption at the end, when he faces telling Danny's son the truth - that he killed Danny; that Danny's son was not responsible for his father's death. In this way he can end the cycle of lies, misplaced guilt, penance, and self-loathing that has plagued the family. It also shows its surrealist chops in the episode in which John keeps hallucinating; the astral otherness and plausibility-yet-slightly-nightmarish-offness rivals any trippy segment in existence. The writers show their prowess in manipulating, yet perfectly reflecting, 'Reality' in its kaleidoscope of possibilities, and through the inevitable filter of human fears. Yet, somehow, we are able to understand by the next episode what actually happened. Kyle Chandler (John) shows his versatility and intelligence as an actor here, too. This series may not be what most of us are looking for when we tune into a show at the end of the day. It's an in-depth study of characters, family, and the emotional foundation of each person and of the family as a whole. In its purity of story, and even in its juggling of existential truths, I would now place it in the same family as Alan Ball's Six Feet Under. This is highly emotionally intelligent TV, and deserves the same attention as our great novels.

    If this show was given time to finish its storylines this would have been on my top 10 Tv Shows of all time but instead we got a rushed confusing series finale. So much great storyline that is worth 5 years instead we got 3, very bittersweet.

    Kevin is the worst annoying actor I've ever seen what a baby

    Season 1 and 2 are moving along pretty well, with a fairly cohesive storyline. I don't know what heck happened with the writers. They must have been dropping acid while writing episodes 1 -7. It was so confusing and all over the place that we were making our own story up trying to construct something that made sense. The ending was hurried and beyond disappointing.
  • Nov 05, 2020
    A perfect example of what happens when scriptwriters write themselves into a tight corner. Expect some crazy Tennessee Williams moments amidst scenes of paranoid fumbling through the guilt-ridden mind of a once sympathetic character (John). Since no realistic conclusion is imaginable, we are invited to accept this in its stead. Is this our reward for seeing it through? I want my money back.

    Do not waste your time. We kept watching believing the implausible plot, characters and dialogue would somehow come together. Spoiler alert. IT DOESN'T. The writers should be embarrassed.

    How this show went from that very promising first season into the dumpster-fire that was Season 3 isn't quite "beyond" me (I know how hard it is to maintain a good creative thread) - but it is a real let down. I simply couldn't make it through the whole season. Put a stake in this one.

    About the worst season of a TV show as I've ever witnessed. It's like the cast and writers gave up. Season one was great, season two was OK. Season 3 was a huge waste of time. It's like going out on a great first date. Second date was worthwhile. Third date, she has a habit of eating stuff out of the cat's litter box. I'm pissed that I wasted that time.
  • Jul 10, 2020
    All the actors involved give excellent performances, and what other reviewers call a slow meandering plot I call "real life" - it can be that way sometimes. Plus, not everything in life, nor in movies, always has a black and white solution or happy ending.
  • Jul 05, 2020
    If you, like me, can't get enough of the dysfunctional Rayburn clan, you'll LOVE season 3 almost as much as the first two.
