The Conners: Season 3 Reviews

October 30, 2020
"The Conners" can come off as ham-fisted when leveraging topical themes for its family dramedy... This time, though, the situations in ABC's flagship family sitcoms hit especially close to home.

TV comedies, especially good ones like "black-ish" and "The Conners," know when they have to "pivot," but especially know when to arrive back at the same place where all sitcoms eventually end up: In the warm, swaddling embrace of family.

This should hopefully provide a pretty rich setup for the rest of the season.

The Conner family has always been able to find the humor in struggling to get by, but the stakes have never seemed higher, and it's difficult to laugh at their all-too-real desperation.

Other than Superstore, no scripted show that takes place outside of a hospital is better suited to dramatize the anxiety, uncertainty, and absurdity of the pandemic.

What this [premiere] lacks in humor it more than makes up for it in heart. After all, the Conner family has always been America's look into the realities of the working-class family.
