    The season 3 premiere (entitled “This Is About Vomit, People.”) aired last night on HBO, and it was fantastic. Even if you’re a new viewer like myself who hasn’t seen the whole series yet (only watched Niecy Nash’s Emmy tape prior to this), it’s completely watchable and catches on quickly enough. Very lived-in and engaging throughout. Maybe a bleaker, less quirky version of “Nurse Jackie”? I’ll be tuning in for the rest of the season to see how this all turns out and ends.

    I think it was an amazing episode. Although it wasn’t exactly “laugh-out-loud” funny, it was really smart and set the tone to the season. I’m looking forward to see more. And the cast, as usual, did a terrific job.

    I didn’t know that was a season premiere. I thought I was watching a rerun. I’m defintely going to be tuning in from now on.

    This has been a show I have been championing to my friends for a while and I am glad it is picking up new fans in it’s final (maybe?) season.

    I thought the premeire was great! The storyline about unions and whose responsibility it is to clean up vomit was hilarious. The writers of this show are brilliant examples of really utilizing the strengths of the core cast.

    I highly suggest watching the first 2 seasons (only 12 episodes in total)!

    The Season 3 premiere was hilarious. I am so glad to have this show back on the air (for 6 weeks only, but still). I will enjoy the hilarity while it lasts!

    An aside: Laurie Metcalf plays Dr. Jenna James SO perfectly. I can’t get enough.

    Incredible premiere! Perfect submission for Laurie Metcalf in Lead Actress. The scene of her and Jayma Mays in the restroom was VERY laugh-out-loud hilarious!

    Pretty gross episode, but I liked it all the same. I guess the final season will push toward closing the hospital doors for good, or Dr. James going down for all she’s done prior to this. Laurie Metcalf is soooo great here. She would be more than deserving of Emmy recognition for this role. I’m really taken by how strong this ensemble is. I should have discovered this series sooner.

    Grade for “Don’t Let It Get in You or on You”: B+

    Rhea Perlman’s performance tonight should be locked for the Guest Actress nomination, perhaps even the win. Hilarious.

    ^ ^ ^ Yes, absolutely. Rhea Perlman showed how a pro does it from start to finish. She should have been recognized for her work on “The Mindy Project” by now too.

    Also, June Squibb should have been nodded last season.

    That was probably this shows darkest episode ever, some heartbreaking performances.

    This is one of the best episodes I’ve seen them do. Laurie Metcalf should be locked into Lead Actress in a Comedy Series next year, and it’s sad that she’s not even in the conversation. All of the conflicting things going on in this episode kept me on edge. Birdie! :-((( Such a great ensemble that all delivered when the time came. I’ve always been taken with Alex Borstein’s presence here. I figured she would be the obvious go-to supporting actress contender, but then I see what Niecy Nash is doing as the heart of this series. The contrast between this role of hers and “Scream Queens” is pretty staggering. One is as deserving as the other, I think. Then there’s Mel Rodgriguez’s Patsy that I don’t quite know what to make of yet lol. The visiting British docs and the symposium competition sceens were all strong. Grant Bowler was given more to do, which was nice. June Squibb and Kristen Johnston next week! They’re really ending this with a bang! Maybe HBO will reconsider a fourth season. This is not a show that should be signing off in its prime.

    Grade for “Am I Still Me?”: A
