Critic Reviews for Seinfeld Season 3

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

Season 3 is when Seinfeld started to push the boundaries of sexual identities and promiscuity

Quite aside from the fact that, snicker for snicker, belly laugh for belly laugh, it's probably the funniest show on television, Seinfeld is also one of the purest of all TV-viewing pleasures.

If you've caught early episodes of "Seinfeld" in syndication, you already know the show doesn't consistently elicit big laughs until its third season.

I've gotten into such a rhythm of consistent Seinfeld consumption that I imagine withdrawal is going to be a painful process.

Audience Reviews for Seinfeld: Season 3

  • Mar 19, 2017
    After two limited episode seasons Seinfeld finally gets a full 23-episode order for Season 3. And as a result, the show really starts to come into its own; developing a series format and building (and sticking to) a continuity. Additionally, several signature supporting characters are introduced, including Jerry's frenemy neighbor Newman and Elaine's boss Mr. Lippman. With such classics episodes as "The Pen," "The Parking Garage," "The Red Dot," "The Boyfriend," and "The Keys," the writers have really stepped up their game. Also, several guest stars including Keith Hernandez, Michael Chiklis, Helen Slater, and Catherine Keener make appearances. Season 3 of Seinfeld is full of laughs and solidifies the show as "Must See TV."

    Season 3 of Seinfeld is absolutely the transitional year in the show's history where it went from a sort of cult hit to being ready to become one of the biggest television shows (if not the biggest) of the 1990s. When you take into consideration that the amount of memorable episodes in contrast to Seasons 1 and 2 are exponentially up, and Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer make gigantic leaps in terms of coming into their own as main characters, Season 3 really can be seen as the game-changing season it was.

    Very funny as the characters start to hit their stride.

    The episodes of Seinfeld season 3 are hilarious, but not as fantastical as the series would get in season 5. The season contains a number of "early classics," particularly "The Parking Garage," "The Alternate Side," "The Letter," "The Pez Dispenser."

    Much better overall (I guess. It's the same rating as the last season.) Some of my favorite episodes, and a four episode streak of 9/10's in the first half, and less bad episodes! The second half isn't as good though, and it doesn't end strong. The Limo is so far my favorite episode (first 10/10 I've given!) I think it's gonna be hard to choose my favorites or top ten of the series.

    This show is amazing!!!!!!!!

    It may not be the most cohesive season (in terms of quality) but there's no denying in Season's 3 influence over television and more importantly over Seinfeld. What made Season 3 possible was set a tone and a writing and directing style for the show. And that's no easy job. It has classic episodes (The Subway, The Fix Up, The Boyfriend) and rough ones (The Dog, The Stranded, The Keys), but we can't forget the importance of this season.
