What Critics Are Saying About ‘The Bear’ Season 3

Attention Peak TV fans: The bear is back. The reigning Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy champion returns for Season 3 for more boredom and dark humor with Carmy Berzatto, the show’s prestigious chef who returns to Chicago to run the sandwich shop’s extremely stressful kitchen of his late brother.

Since its pilot episode, The bear was acclaimed by critics, who called it an extraordinary series, with true-to-life dialogue, compelling characters whose pain and stress (and there is a lot of stress here) seem to be deeply in empathy with the series. writers. The bear went on to win the 2023 Emmys and now has must-see TV status for everyone heading into season 3.

But can such a beloved series maintain the praise of every TV critic for a third season? The answer is a resounding… almost. The season has “Universal Acclaim” status on Metacritic with a score of 81 out of 100 (though compare that to Season 1’s 88 and Season 2’s peak score of 92 and it seems like the honeymoon may be over for The Bear + Critics). Or we can instead look at the stellar 94% rating among critics for The bear season 3 on the Rotten Tomatoes aggregator.

The Arizona Republicm Bill Goodykoontz praised The bear” on the third go-around, writing that “the show is every bit as great as it was last season, and that’s it – as great, not better. Which is still, all things considered, as good, if not better, than anything else on television.”

DecideLNicole Gallucci of ‘ believes that the series is a series for all ages, as proven by season 3, writing: “The bearThe brilliant mix of overstimulating chaos, precision and catharsis is a special place in itself. Season 3 grills, grabs, then professionally grapples your heartstrings, just before cruelly tossing them in the trash, and no matter what happens to Carmy’s rising Chicago hot spot in the future, the series will leave a legacy lasting on television.

Right here at The Hollywood ReporterOur TV critic Daniel Feinberg sees a comparison between these characters and those of Shakespeare Hamlet. It makes for wonderful television, he writes: “Episode by episode, the third season of The bear “It’s as good as anything the show has ever done. Maybe better? …. Indecision can be exciting and I found the risks The Bear took in these 10 episodes exciting. But if you’re hoping seeing things progress at a breakneck pace, it’s a suspenseful season that reflects its main characters and their respective detention patterns.”

Although some critics still praised the new season, they felt that it had lost some of the magic of the previous two. Empire Critic John Nugent writes: “There’s nothing here that matches the extraordinary heights of last season’s ‘Fish’ or ‘Forks.’ But when it really sizzles, The Bear remains the best table in town.”

Vulture‘s Kathryn VanArendonk seems to agree with this, writing, “Despite its missteps in Season 3, The bear is still one of the most interesting shows on television. For every moment of self-congratulation, there’s another moment that can tip you over the edge.

But it turns out that Universal Acclaim status on Metacritic can come with less-than-ecstatic reviews, and this season of The bear has some critics calling it almost self-parody (yeah).

Alan Sepinwell from rolling stone wrote: “At its best, The Bear remains innovative, excellent, and so vividly rendered that it can be delightful to watch. But the season also feels muddled, overdone, and incoherent at times.”

Vanity Fair‘s Richard Lawson could have hated the season, writing that “The bear “The series is full of generic conversations about big things and plaintive remarks that border on self-parody. Only near the very end of a ten-episode season do we see a real treatment of Carmy’s tortured professional psyche – it’s appreciated, but comes too late.”

Reviews are sometimes fun to read, but the best way to find out is to exercise your critical thinking skills – everyone is a critic, as you know – and find out how much you like The bear season 3 for yourself. It airs on Fox on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
