Broad City: Season 3 - Rotten Tomatoes

Broad City: Season 3 (2016)




Critic Consensus: Broad City returns with another strong season of Jacobson and Glazer's hilarious outlook on the struggles of NYC life.


Tv Season Info

The third season of the comedy series brings back Ilana (Ilana Glazer) and Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) and the weird world they live in. This time, however, the show focuses more on their personal and professional lives, rather than their antics. While dealing with Tinder, unexpected parties, involuntary thefts, accidental injuries and a "Mrs. Doubtfire"-inspired situation, the two ladies also have to deal with Ilana losing her job, Abbi dating Trey (Paul W. Downs) and lying to Ilana about it, Lincoln (Hannibal Buress) finding a new girlfriend, and the inevitable strain that all this puts on Abbi and Ilana's friendship. However, the bond they share is strong, and will not be broken so easily. Season 3 also brings in a host of big guest stars, such as Alan Alda, Hillary Clinton, Whoopi Goldberg, Tony Danza and Vanessa Williams.

Like a packed piñata of absurdity, each episode rains unforeseen treats, from physical pranks to existential banter to all manner of sexual exuberance. It's all smartly visualized around town and briskly stitched together.

Broad City continues to capture the absurdity and humor of life for 20-somethings in New York, all without the pretentiousness of most shows set in the eccentric city.

What has always made Broad City both appealing and potentially alienating is its commitment to mocking the lives of (mostly white, young) New Yorkers. That doesn't change in season three.

Uproarious, tear-inducing, side-splitting, and tell-everyone-you-love-and-hate-immediately good, Broad City is the funniest show on TV right now.
