Under Coach McIntire (Dondre Whitfield), the girls are forced into unlikely pairs and respond badly to his training techniques.

Critic Reviews for Make It or Break It Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

It was the rare show that mined interpersonal teenage drama without resorting to overfamiliar high-school tropes.

Make It or Break It is not, to be clear, a great TV show, in the manner of the prestige stuff viewers are accustomed to today...And yet: It is compelling. It is addictive. That's because of the smaller-scale tensions that it explores.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

As the show progresses, it becomes less about that team's infighting and more about the personal challenges each girl faces. There's a lot of huffing and puffing and glaring, especially from the mean girl - but best character - Lauren (Cassie Scerbo).

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

This show didn't need a sugar-cookie-cutter villain. At its best, MIOBI wasn't about overcoming a French-braid-twirling big bad.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It's one of a kind, empowering and inspiring, and everyone should... watch this show.
