Critic Reviews for Difficult People Season 3

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

It's big, existential stuff, pushing Klausner and Eichner towards their most nuanced performances yet.

Aug 8, 2017 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The jokes, often at the expense of celebrities, are told with startling confidence. Who knows how the market can support a show so narrowly targeted to a literate, mean audience -- but who cares when it's this funny?

May 10, 2019 | Full Review…

If the show's earlier seasons sometimes wallowed in sarcasm, then the third season is its most mature iteration of the show yet, and where it has finally found its groove.

Aug 10, 2017 | Full Review…

In a time where you need to laugh more than anything, Hulu's Difficult People reminds us that we can roll our eyes with aplomb and not feel bad about it.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

That [premiere] was a great capsule of the show's humor: a blend of mass entertainment and niche references with a huge serving of outrage.

May 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Difficult People has proven to be perfectly suited to lampooning our national nightmare because Julie and Billy get to act as angry as viewers feel inside.

May 10, 2019 | Full Review…

While the show is brilliant and there's always a need for their honest, often-on-the-nose pop culture witticisms, this [season finale] was a pretty solid ending.

May 10, 2019 | Full Review…

What better way to take on the ludicrous hoop-jumping of celebrity and political narcissism than through the lens of two narcissists for whom celebrity and pop culture are their lifeblood?

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

The Hulu original continues to succeed in placing its pessimistic protagonist in hilarious situations.

Nov 1, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Difficult People has found the utmost confidence in its characters and its acerbic voice, propelling the show to the status of the funniest show on television.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The show is about the absolute thrill of finding someone else who's as clever as you are and hates all the same things. It's a shame the show wasn't renewed, but that's all the more reason to celebrate its brief, too-beautiful-for-this-world run

Jan 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Yet while this season may be meaner than ever, it's also somehow sweeter, finding moments of vulnerability in these characters.

Audience Reviews for Difficult People: Season 3

  • Sep 27, 2017
    The best season yet for Difficult People. In the year since last season, there's obviously been a lot of changes made to the New York mentality, and Difficult People does a remarkable job of satirizing this without being (too) belittling. Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner feel more in-tune than ever with their character chemistry, and they make for the most lovably foul TV protagonists since Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Rounded out with a cast of types from all creeds, races and sexualities, the show also really understands New York's diverse appeal (unlike, say, a Lena Dunham creation), and while the show's characters tend to be dick-heads, the tone couldn't be any less mean-spirited. Perhaps a little too direct with some of its one-liners ("Consent? There's that word again dude!") but for the most part the zingers are all sharp and hilarious, and let's hope they keep up this energy for next year!

    I want to hate this show, but the main characters get it. I hate that they're relatable in that way. Ugh.

    These people are the WORST. In the unfunniest way possible.
