The third season of Search Party not only finds its satirical groove but manages to find a measure of currency by focusing on how a pair of white, privileged millennials wind their way through the justice system when they go on trial for murder.

“Search Party” remains a captivating case study in genre experimentation and cultural commentary. There are minuscule moments that serve up great jokes, sharp appraisal, or both, and it’s impressive to see how long the creators have kept us hooked on these antiheroes — especially now, when tolerance for contemptible leads is at an all-time low.

Search Party now fully embraces Dory’s sociopathic nature, and Shawkat brings a chilling element of detachment to her character’s burgeoning confidence. ... This time around, our black-hearted heroine won’t let anyone tell her what she actually did do, and it’s a thrill to watch.
