Let's talk about the best show on TV, The Good Place!

Do you like shows like Parks and Rec or Brooklyn 99? Mike Schur makes this show too!

Do you like ethics and moral philosophy? Everyone hates you! But there's a lot of that on The Good Place.

Do you like ridiculously diverse, funny, touching, beautiful casts?

We got you covered.

Tube says this is an open spoilers thread, because otherwise this conversation would get very annoying

So let's talk about why Jason and Janet should get back together and where they could possibly go after last night's episode!

    Moving a discussion with @Dracomicron from the TV thread to here (with spoilers off, of course)
    New Good Place

    I know that "Demons love/invented [THING]" is a well that could run dry, but them being responsible for Roasts was a real good joke.

    My question, though:
    If demons invented roasts, how did they get to Earth? Can demons go to Earth? Send messages? Can anyone?

    There isn't much in this show about the afterlife interfering with the real world. That's maybe a place they can go later, if it turns out that time is compressed in The Bad Place and only like two years have passed on Earth for hundreds of iterations of the Neighborhood.

    My wild guess is that demons can manipulate/influence people on Earth to cause misery, but I'm not attached to that theory if something else is shown.

    - Fixed a bug where the Moon was upside down.
    - Fixed a weird door.

    So far we have confirmation that demons can see the human world, even know thoughts of individuals, but I don't think there has ever been any talk of manipulation...and in fact the amount of paperwork that would be necessary would probably make it not worthwhile.

    I'd buy it being a limited thing. If it did exist I could see it being used so the humans could give a final message to somebody on Earth and get some closure. Assuming time compression is in effect, of course.

    Every new Janet development is a new opportunity for D'Arcy Carden to be the best. Bad Janet and Drunk Janet in a single episode is a gift

    Don't get it it twisted, I'm still cute as hell tho.

    Drunk Janet was wonderful. All Janet is great, really.

    I could have done with maybe 5% less Jason in the latest episode. His random interjections were unusually hit or miss for me this week. Usually everything he says cracks me up but something was amiss this time. Maybe me, who knows.

    So, Michael absolutely has no idea what to do now, right? He can’t stay there anymore, and there’s no way he actually knows how to get them into the real Good Place.

    He is in charge of the new program. He is actually perfectly positioned to help the Felonious Four.

    I am concerned that this is gonna turn into shenanigans and danger creep as things get more convoluted and wacky hijinks to keep them from actually being tortured in the really real bad place

    I really don't want this to turn into the funny hijinks version of Supernatural or something where they couldn't stop escalating and have ruined everything enjoyable about the show

    Yeah, but from his expression right as things ended he's not confident in whatever happens next - Shawn did say to wipe the neighborhood completely, and he may not be able to hide it if he leaves it intact.

    What are the odds that they actually get to the good place but then decide that actually it's kinda boring and sucks, and season 3 is trying to get back to the bad place?

    Speaking of wagers, I'm going to bet that the show's version of God is played by Nick Offerman.

    While I won’t be surprised if the Good Place is as overly exclusive and bureaucratic as Michael’s ruse suggested and they have to lead a revolution or something and fix it, I don’t think that specific scenario of just leaving fits with the show’s theme of self-improvement

    I have no idea what happens next, but I have to imagine that their experiences are leading them toward eventually inventing purgatory or something similar

    I don't think that expression was about not knowing what to do, although I doubt he does. That expression was directly responding to Chidi exclaiming "It's everything we've ever wanted," which contrasted to what Michael said earlier. He's making a huge sacrifice for his friends. I think Danson killed this episode and that scene in particular where he goes REALLY BIG on his reaction to them being ok and then really small on his realization that these people getting what they want means he will suffer and lose his dream.

    He's a ridiculous actor.

    I want Amy Poehler and Amy Sedaris to show up as alternate model Janets and then they have a Janet-off with D'arcy

    They'd all be trying to out helpful each other, in such different ways.

    Honestly I’m really enjoying the cast of relative unknowns in this show - and while Adam Scott’s cameo was pretty fun, it was enough for me.

    Also love that through all 802 versions, Tahani's concept of The Bad Place is "a slightly uncomfortable vacation"

    It would probably still be one of the more expensive shows on TV if it was just Ted Danson eating breakfast every episode, every scene

    He must cost a significant portion of the show’s entire budget

    this is one of my all time favorite shows

    every episode feels like they've written themselves into a corner and then the next episode is them doing batshit crazy narrative gymnastics to dive out of it, only to write themselves into an all new corner for the following week

    it feels like they put Parks and Recreation and The Prisoner into a blender and and somehow actually made that work perfectly
