The Good Place

Recommended Posts

Yep - this has returned to form. Maybe it will turn out those 2 bad episodes were actually some sort of simulation/it was all part of the overall story that they had some crap adventures.

Yeah the last two have been great. Still worry about the overall direction the story is going to go but these just seemed to have that spark that the previous two were missing a bit.

"Surprised to see me?"

"Oh, that's right. I'm Shaun. You're very scared of me" 

 

:lol:

Yeah, but they're really fragmenting it. There's an episode this weekend, after a 3 week break, then another 5 week break until January.

 

Ugh, fucking American tv schedules!

I wonder if that's why there was a three-week break, because of all the visual effects stuff they must have had to do. Good to see Neil from accounting too!

 

Probably just scheduling. I think the whole season is wrapped at the moment and Bell is off doing Veronica Mars.

Brilliantly dark moments in that episode:

 

The witless affability of Neil from Accounting as we learn that millions of good, innocent people have been sent to be tortured for all eternity over the past five hundred years, simply because the good place is so arrogantly sure of their system. Whew. Left me feeling kinda winded for a moment.

What's going on with this, 3 weeks then one episode and now nothing again.

 

I know the first break was because of Thanksgiving (not sure exactly why though as it's not filmed live) but now what's happening, xmas?

And we’re done for the season.

 

After a shakey start it recovered well - but still think below 1/2

 

 

Also shut up. I’m not teary eyed. I have allergies :’(

That was great. Fantastic last three Eps. A bit of dust in my eye too. Really opens up some nice possibilities for S4 too. Whenever that finally rolls around.

 

Now onto final Kimmys and soon Nine Nine!

It was an odd series. Maybe it's just because of the scheduling - I steamed through the first two series in about a week, and having to wait each week for 25 minutes of The Good Place was painful, especially with the stupid stupid gaps (I mean 3 weeks, one episode then another 5 week gap? That's just ridiculous).

 

But it really struggled in the first half, the scenes set on Earth just didn't work and they lost their way with Janet's character in particular. It rallied significantly in the second half but again because of the gaps between episodes I never really got the "this is brilliant!" feeling I got from the first two series. Maybe watching it through again in one go would make it seem stronger. But the Janets episode with the Accounting Department was up there with the best episodes this show has done.

 

Still, I'm glad they've found a way to get back to The Good Place (which is the only location this show really works) and the setup for the next season looks really strong. Shame we have to wait a year for it now really.
