Community: Season 3 - Rotten Tomatoes

Community: Season 3 (2011-2012)




Critic Consensus: The Greendale study group take some of their boldest swings -- though not all connect -- in this freewheeling third season that nevertheless continues Community's streak as the gold standard for fiendishly clever television.

Critic Reviews for Community: Season 3

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (5)

Remains the smartest, weirdest show on TV... [Community] is deliberately constructed so that Harmon and his writers can drape complex and unrelenting TV-sitcom tropes and pop-culture references all over its scaffolding.

You have one of the most solid cast that just works... This is the funniest comedy on television.

Season 3 was full of great stories, enjoyable character growth and some incredibly strong, memorable episodes.

January 11, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Felt like it was having difficulty deciding how to grow, both in terms of characterization and format... With everything Community had already accomplished in two seasons, Season 3 floundered a bit.

How many sitcoms have enough brilliant, funny, sweet, and heart-achy episodes to allow for the possibility of debate? That's how good Dan Harmon's sitcom has been so far.

I want Harmon to get to keep making his show, but I'll be grateful whether he does or not. Because if I can get three seasons on DVD of a show that never spoiled, or went sour-panicky, or phony-warm, I'll be entirely satisfied.

Community fully embraces its weirdness, but suffers ever so slightly for it. Still a fantastic season of television.
