I like this show, but I can never get over how close it is to being a 30 Rock successor, while always falling a little bit short.

I can't quite name what's missing, but there's just some element that isn't all the way there in the writing and pacing/delivery of the jokes.

Is Tina Fey's alcoholic psychiatrist character still there?

She was basically the only part of season 2 I enjoyed. If she's gone then I have no interest in continuing to watch this show anymore.

I don't know how I feel about this season. Kimmie getting into Columbia was really lame, as was Russ turning attractive-his new actor is not good. Titus was really fun, but just bout everyone else was less entertaining. I'm not sure how many stories this show has left to tell without going over old territory.

Kimmy's "Oh noooooo" to the story about the tootsie roll factory is making this season worth it already.

The best part was that it was Bill Barretta, who actually works for Henson and performs Swedish Chef and Pepe the King Prawn.

Man this season was a real let down. Very funny, but that came at the expense of any real sense of momentum. Plots just kind of meander around without making any progress. Season 2 at least had the connective thread of Kimmy's anger issues; but this time it seems as if there's no real arc to things along the series; it's just sorta more show. Episode 13 didn't feel like an end to anything in particular, it was just the last of this batch. I'll have to give it another watch and see if it fits together better. I guess it could be Kimmy wants to help people? But we had to sidetrack through Colombia and rowing and a crisis about molewoman disclosure? I dunno, it all felt kinda clumsy.

Daveed Diggs is adorable and was totally underused.

Enjoyed for the story continuation but no where near as funny as S1 and S2.

Such a shame but just didn't have the same laughs. I enjoyed the episode where Titus and russ' brother are fighting over Jacqueline but that was the only stand out episode.

About halfway through it, not very into it tbh. My friends and I just had to vocally agree that S1 ain't getting beat anytime soon in terms of humor at least.

I still like Tidus, he's hilarious and easily my favorite, but man, I feel like I really don't like or care for anyone else outside of him and Kimmy. I felt similarly in S2, but now it has become more glaring this season.

These jokes feel like they are being written by old people that were once funny, but are now desperately and awkwardly flailing to hit their marks to a younger audience, and it's failing completely.

Not sure where this backlash is coming from. I'm 2 episodes in...and it's more of the same, great Kimmy Schmidt. I dunno, maybe it takes a dive with later episodes?

I do hope everyone isn't marathoning it, because comedy shows can be fatiguing if you do that.

Unless it takes it dive with later episodes, I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Hope everyone isn't marathoning it, because comedy shows can be fatiguing if you do that.

I thought the first episode was the weakest and it picked up significantly (thru 6 episodes)

Yeah, I agree to that, but I did marathon Season 2 (a bit), and found that a pretty good season as well, but mainly because of how dark the main arch was with Kimmy trying to deal with her PTSD.

Side note, I think marathoning AD Season 4 (because my country didn't have Netflix yet and I was in the US when it premiered in Netflix by chance) affected my views on it. Sure, the structure was weird, but maybe I would have liked it more if I watched it one episode at a time.

Up to Episode 8 spoilers I am not sure how I stand about Season 3 since I just finished Episode 8 but it's still pretty good. Not as strong as S1, but it has great moments here and there. I think what drags the season down is that the main arch is weaker compared to S2. And Kimmy going to Columbia U isn't that believable yet, and that storyline hasn't been used to that advantage because we barely saw Kimmy struggling with school work. I still like the season though, it's just not as strong as it could have been so far. That said, I'm loving the 30 Rock references/cameos in this. That should have been done since Season 1.

I'm only 7 episodes into the season but I feel like there's been pretty clearly defined serialized plotlines running through the season so I don't know why I'm seeing a lot of people claim the season doesn't have a storyline. Not that sitcoms are typically very serialized anyways.
