Critic Reviews for Chappelle's Show Season 3

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (8)

The skits from the first Lost Episode find the comedian in top form, picking on subjects ripe to be picked on. But - and here's where pop psychologists could have a field day - one of the topics is himself.

Sure, you'll laugh loud and long at this first "Lost" episode -- and, obviously, that's what's important. But these episodes have a memorial quality to them and, like fame itself, their impact feels fleeting.

Ultimately, even in disconnected, abridged, or otherwise compromised form, the funnyman still ranks in the top percentile of his comedy class.

Both populist and pointed, Chappelle's Show tackled race relations with a colloquial sort of lucidity that refused to leave anyone out of the conversation.

Comedy Central made a huge mistake in airing unfinished (and mediocre) skits left behind when Chappelle bailed on the network two years ago. That's not to say I can't understand its motivation.

The Lost Episodes isn't an exercise in barrel scraping, fortunately, but it would be a lot easier to enjoy this raw, personal material without twinges of guilt if this were a lovingly assembled bootleg rather than a corporate bid to recoup an investment.

The sketches in the three episodes, like most Chappelle's Show material, get funnier upon multiple viewings.

Jul 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The sketches here are high-grade Chappelle: funny and surprising, if not a full-on riot, as his best work on the show has been. But they also tell the story of an intellectual with an esoteric imagination.

Jul 16, 2018 | Full Review…

A fascinating, brilliant, and sometimes maddening collection of three episodes cobbled together, Frankenstein-style, from skits Chappelle made before he famously ditched his show and fled to Africa.

Top Critic

As three episodes of Chappelle's Show, "The Lost Episodes" don't measure up. As three episodes that depict how difficult it is to sustain something with its power, potency, ferocity, and intelligence, "The Lost Episodes" are essential.
