    The highlights of Wednesday's season premiere are the return of the anger translator and an insanely brilliant take-off on the film version of "Les Miserables," which is so beautifully detailed, it may actually take you a second to realize it is a satire and the song lyrics aren't what you think they are.

    It may be quite a challenge to keep up the pace and the quality. But the bet here is that these guys will find ways to keep making it all work for them.

    The comedy ranges from silly to sharp, but it's seldom stupid and it's never mean-spirited – and the pair's talent is always on obvious display.

    All joking aside, Key and Peele do still have something to say.

    The only reason Comedy Central should still even be programmed on your television is this show right here. Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key are two of the absolute funniest comedians and sketch artists of contemporary art. With their stellar sketch themes and characters, fantastic writing, and impeccable pacing, the show is a perfect snapshot of what they do and how well they do it. Season 3 was no different, and the writing and acting was stepped up quite a bit. Be on the lookout for Season 4 if you like real comedy. Expand

    Key and Peele is back for Season 3, and they're bigger and better. Chalk full of laughs, Season 3 leaves you wanting a full hour show length, just like the previous 2 seasons Collapse

    This season is probably the best one they've done yet. It's freakin' hilarious. It seems like they've put more work into this season compared to their previous ones Expand

    Similar to what I said about season 1 applies towards season 3. The skits are good but the stand up comedy just isn't that interesting. A few of the skits were eh but the ones that were good were freaking hilarious. I'd give it a few more episodes to see if it has improved from the first season. Expand

    We've seen it all before. Isn't the main problem critics have with Sci-fi and fantasy movies is it's storyline and general plot repitition? Why should comedy be any different? Expand
