Tim Robinson is back, louder than ever, and dedicated to ruining every social situation he's in on Season 3 of I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson.

For the uninitiated, I Think You Should Leave gets its name from the show's passionately absurd characters making antisocial decisions and, no matter how annoying or disgusting they are, obsessively doubling down, even when it would be clearly best to abandon ship. In between spoof infomercials, nonsense game shows and nightmare parties, the sketch show — where people "take everything way too far" and "get way too hyper," to quote one character — uses silliness to deconstruct stiff corporate offices, which Robinson and company absolutely delight in smashing with childlike fists.

One particular sketch involves Robinson's neighbour sneaking a pig in a Richard Nixon mask into his home. Since Robinson's character is running low on sleep because he was up thinking about a swing dancer at a wedding who flipped his wife upside down too many times (obviously), he mistakes the intruder for a monstrous human/pig hybrid. 

It all ends with Robinson shouting an all-too-relatable rant as we too watch late-stage capitalism crumble around us: "And when you think you're gonna get eaten and your first thought is, 'Great, I don't have to go to work tomorrow.' You're relieved you don't have to go to work 'cause you thought you were gonna get eaten? What the fuck is this world? What have they done to us? What did they do to us?!"

But that's about as serious as I Think You Should Leave gets. The six-episode season swings right back into goofiness with a doctor who's way too interested in clubbing with his patient, ponytails stuck in cars, fast food "pay-it-forward" scams and gatekeeping hair loss pills.

Robinson and the crew (including guests like Sam RichardsonPatti HarrisonTim HeideckerJason Schwartzman and Fred Armisen) deliver another season of incredibly quotable bits without drying out their formula. Gratefully, I Think You Should Leave provides more than enough giggles to get us through the 9 to 5.
