Critic Reviews for Glee: Season 3

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

There was no agenda, be it related to sex or drugs or homosexuality. Instead, there was simply time spent with New Directions and the realistic problems many of them would face in real life.

September 6, 2013 | Rating: 4.7/5 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the premiere didn't add anything new to make me think I wasn't eating the same sugary snack we've been force-fed all summer.

September 6, 2013 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Wildly ambitious at times, not always successful, but always trying weird, new things.

September 6, 2013 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Monteith especially acts the hell out of the scene, but the way it unfolds, both of them in the car watching their realities change, is one of the best things the show has ever done.
