Critics 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.

Audience Reviews for Community: Season 3

  • Aug 09, 2021
    This season feels messy and very generic at times
  • Jul 22, 2021
    The last truly great season of the show Season 3 is impressive and has almost entirley good episodes aside from the simulation episode which drags out the hospital school bit way too long The video game episode is fun and as you learn the truth has quite a heart warming end The dictator chang episode is stupid yet funny and makes me laugh shit loads though the ac school thing was super dumb and made the person i was watching the episode with not give the rest of community a chance because it is such a weird episode The end of the season sets up season 4 yet the way season 4 handles them isnt so great I love community and miss it dearly
  • Jul 21, 2021
    Follows the same awesome format of the season prior but I feel like some of the episodes missed the good feeling of the show. Also I was not a big fan on the multiple episode ending of the season with Chang taking over the school. I still enjoy the season with it's flaws.
  • Jul 07, 2021
    Still great with a few amazing episodes. Doesn't really go out with a bang like previous seasons though, which is a shame considering this is the last outing of the entire original cast.
  • Apr 20, 2021
    Ok season, only has like three memorable episodes. 7/10
  • Apr 03, 2021
    Season three continues what made season two of Community so strong by exploring different mediums to tell its story and by providing strong, character driven plots that continue to flesh its cast of characters as immensely likeable, realistic visions of readily identifiable people. Gags and pop culture references abound.
  • Jan 19, 2021
    One of the greatest seasons of TV ever.
  • Nov 09, 2020
    as of this season the episodes start to be out of the box, in the other two seasons they already had some episodes out of the box, but in this season they exaggerate, but still one season continues.
  • Aug 08, 2020
    (all seasons) The subversive humour of the first three seasons, along with the great cast and character chemistry are what makes "Community". The fourth season just feels off, slightly forced even, and the show never fully recovers after that. Its formula - the episodes' identical structure - is increasingly obvious during those last seasons, which, unaided by the cast changes, don't feel that natural. The challenging, original, thought-provoking first three seasons are what "Community" should be lauded for.
  • Jul 29, 2020
    The dysfunctional COMMUNITY students are leading the way in mildly misanthropic adventures. What it does consistently is be a comedy show that doesn't feel like a comedy show. The characters are all kinds of atypical disassociative stereotypes who are also juxtaposed between lovable and loathsome. They're underdogs of an underdog campus - or wait, are they the popular kids at an unpopular campus? We don't know what, if anything, they're learning, but then maybe that's the underlying theme of the whole show, where it doesn't matter really what they learn being that low on the social strata. What can say is this is the last of the long seasons and I'm curious to see how the shorter seasons play out in compressed time.
