Viewed in a vacuum, the third season of Dear White People is a good season of TV. It's just that the previous seasons had me expecting greatness.

Lesser shows would have turned these students into mouthpieces long before now. They are people, first, and the message comes through their believability.

I initially feared this season was all over the place. Previously minor characters receive major showcases, and the nonstop banter... can sound overwritten. But Simien is telling an elaborate, expansive story here, working with some truly ace collaborators.
