Audience Reviews for Documentary Now!: Season 3

  • Oct 10, 2020
    Butthole Country is definitely a classic. And somehow they managed to get Wilson, Keaton and Blanchett to do this garbage.
  • Jun 13, 2020
    The best season yet! This third season of on-point mockumentaries finds increasingly potent fodder, parodying films such as Wild Wild Country and Dear Mr. Watterson. The scripts remain as clever and unpredictable as ever, and even though each episode juggles a different aesthetic, the show retains a consistent tone and sense of satire. Comedy fans really need to watch this if they aren't already.

    Just when you thought a show couldn't get anymore cringier.....
  • Sep 15, 2019
    This series took time to hit its stride. It started out too broad, too often. But the third series is five star. The Cate Blanchett episode delighted me most,. not least of all because she is a brilliant actress.
  • Jun 28, 2019
    Season 3 is boring and bland, waste of time.
  • Jun 16, 2019
    I found seasons one and two to be brilliant. The episodes were just funnier, and didn't felt forced. Season 3 is none of those things for me. I just finished the season on Netflix, and I found myself bored at times and just asking myself "What happened to this show?". I know not having Bill Hader is going to have a huge effect on just about any show, but the first two seasons still had some great episodes and moments without him. I don't know what it is. The episode about the play was probably my least favorite. It had potential, but it just wasn't making me laugh. I hope Hader can come back for a season 4, if there will be one. After this one, I wouldn't be surprised if it was canceled.
  • Jun 06, 2019
    Still pretty great, but I found myself missing Hader's presence. He may still write, but his absence was definitely noticed.

    a lesser known gem - so dead on in its parody
