The third season of the Netflix comedy "elevates the show to legendary status," says Brett White. He adds: "The show is a Trojan Horse designed to sneak in serious topics, positive progressive ideals, radical empathy, and unconditional love into households across this America. It gets you with the comforting setup, a three-camera style and the cozy sound of an audience laughing at punchlines. The performances initially feel broad, the stock sitcom characters we’ve seen on everything from Family Matters and Growing Pains to Full House and, well the original One Day at a Time: a saucy grandma, a no-nonsense mom, a nerdy daughter, and a sneaky son, topped off with a clingy next door neighbor. Watching your first few episodes of One Day at a Time is effortless, soothing, familiar. And then it gets to you, right in the heart."
