Critic Reviews for One Day at a Time Season 3

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (9)

The heartbeat of One Day at a Time was its spirited insistence that beauty can thrive alongside pain. The series blended multicam-sitcom laughs with a fearless willingness to tackle heavy social issues.

Mar 15, 2019 | Full Review…

The show frequently smuggles some growth into its longer arcs, even when they're built by those familiar resets.

Capable of innovation within the format while also still remaining genuinely funny.

Feb 8, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The sitcom can still get bogged down with its forced political table talk, but watching the two musical legends bicker between verses of "Ave Maria" will get you on your feet.

Feb 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Of the many issues and subjects One Day at a Time explores like mental health, relationships, and identity, it's great to see forgiveness explored in the mix.

Mar 7, 2019 | Full Review…

The charming, winning sitcom works as both a hilarious family story and a vehicle for social commentary and never once sacrifices an iota of heart to convey the message.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Once again, One Day At a Time proves why it belongs in the conversation for the very best programs on television today.

Feb 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

These are heavy things, but they're dealt with joy, care, and humor.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

It's the kind of comedy performance that, were it on a traditional network a decade ago, would be winning every Machado award available.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The brilliant show, run by Gloria Calderon-Kellett, follows that well-worn sitcom structure, but infuses it with warm humor, fully realized characters, and a fully realized political perspective.

Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Nourishing in the best sense of that term, the kind of show that coaxes forth easy laughter and just as reliably, wrings honestly-earned tears from viewers.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The #MeToo dialogue that took place in Episode 2 was especially thought-provoking.

Audience Reviews for One Day at a Time: Season 3

    This is my favorite show ever. The writers managed to balance funny and emotional scenes. You definitely must watch this intelligent comedy that make you laugh, cry and think about important stuff

    Excellent writing and acting! I absolutely LOVE the open-minded, honest and wholesome portrayal of issues such as immigration, LGBTQ challenges, female challenges, masculinity, mental health and parenting. This show is brilliant!

    It's talking about some really tough issues in a generic sitcom way, but you can watch with anyone about 12 and up. Perhaps not for anyone younger or you're going to have a LOT of explaining to do!

    I must be missing something. This show is full of cliches right down to the goofy landlord. It's everything that was wrong with 70's sitcoms. I didn't have a choice when the original series aired (There were only three channels back then) but I do now......pass.

    One of the most wonderful drama these days. I do want to see the next season.

    Deserves a season 4. The representation of the cast and the hilarity of the writing is much needed. The show handles political issues, cultural issues and coming of age stories that you can't find anywhere else.

    I loved this show, but adding Avoiry was a huge mistake. The char. was condescending,rube, and fake as all heck. She was the worst thing to happen. Plus the love story ship I been rooting for was becoming super real and she just sucked the life out of everything like a black whole. Also the actress wasn't any good. Sorry but I find I blame her for the end of the best show on Netflix! (WHY Netflix this show was the best!)

    Contrary to what the world would have you think, ODaaT is NOT the only show that deals with the topics it's known for. Jane the Virgin is just one example of another (I haven't watched every show, I'm sure there are others). But more important than what ODaaT says is *how* it says it, and there has never been a preachier show. This show is practically an activist on a podium with a megaspeaker, and while I agree with nearly all the messages in the show, *my GOD* they hit you over the head with their shit really hard. For context, I've watched all three seasons. I enjoyed moments in them, but it gets tiring being repeatedly told obvious things, *even if those obvious things need to be told*. Why not show lessons, or have some subtlety and nuance, instead of shoving them up my ass?

    Seriously... We need season 4!
  • Mar 25, 2019
    I cannot tell you how much I love this show and how I hope that it continues to play and have more great seasons one after the next.
