    Last week spoiled me

    This episode was too short

    Glad it's still moving at a clip

    Yeah I dunno something about this season isn't quite doing it for me yet

    A lot of the social parody stuff has always felt a little cornball and hackneyed, but it was layered in with a bunch of other stuff, and usually shwon through the lens of beings that don't quite understand humanity. Now that they're in the real world they're having to lean on that stuff a lot more heavily, and there's never any question about whether or not you're supposed to just take the more cartoonish stuff at face value. I'm still enjoying the show but I'm groaning more than I wish I was.

    In fairness season 2 is a tough act to follow. Especially its premiere. I'm still enjoying this, it's just not regularly blowing me away like the show has done in the past. But it's still early in the season so it's got plenty of time to get there again

    One small touch I did like was Jason giving everyone an Autobot nickname except Trevor, who he called Megatron. Just intuitively knows that he's evil

    Anyway, this week’s podcast confirmed that Kirby is attempting an Australian accent. Mark Evan Jackson even praised her for it

    This after another episode of me not even questioning that she’s meant to be British

    Janet without her powers was hilarious. D'arcy Carden really needs to lead her own comedy and soon.

    As for the future of the show, I'm gearing up for the next episode to be the season 9 finale at this rate before something else happens, but I trust the creators with wherever they take it.

    Not reading above because I'm only five minutes into the episode, but if this entire season is set in Australia and they keep using it as an opportunity to make deliberately terrible australian accent jokes, then I will readily believe i have been sent to a very personally-targeted bad place.

    The restaurant definitely felt like compensation for the Australian accents so far (but also because they're obviously filming in the US).

    finally caught this week's episode, it was a lot stronger than the first two

    still a little silly at points in ways that seemed a bit forced but it was mostly just fun and set things up to go in a real exciting direction

    That would be a stretch, to be honest. I feel like she works much better representing the good of humanity, but from a grounded perspective, rather than the exaggerated demon parodies from season 1.

    That said, I could see them finding the point tallies in Accounting and she's still in the negative, because of how messed up the point system is.

    Yeah I'm hoping this current development is going to lead to a closer examination of the whole afterlife system

    I think this season is where I've lost interest with the show

    I'm not particularly engaged with this season's premise, I was way more interested in Michael when he was either an asshole or an asshole pretending to be a dork, and now the show just kinda seems like wheelspinning now

    I don't really feel much of a progression with the characters anymore and the characters that HAVE progressed have progressed in ways that make them less interesting

    It feels like they've run out of road on the show's premise

    The show's surprised me enough that I'm willing to see where it's going, even though I can very easily see feeling the way you do in retrospect depending on how this season goes

    Luckily the season 2 finale works fairly well as like, an ambiguous, open-ended but hopeful ending, so if the worst case scenario happens you can just kinda pretend it ends there

    I think the ending to the latest episode has them aiming at the right trajectory (the humans being on the same page again re: afterlife), it just depends on them sticking the landing. Which I still have faith in.

    Eleanor in S1 (I think?) mentioned that Chidi is suprisingly jacked, so it was nice to see that become true.

    Alright alright alright, that episode was fantastic. I don't know how long their current objective is going to last, but damn if it isn't an exciting one.

    I also super appreciate that while Eleanor and Chidi freaked out, Tahani and Jason took a much more altruistic look at their seemingly hopeless fate.

    Finally, that manifesto definitely seems to be set-up for The Medium Place. We all know that this show has defied expectations constantly, but I really hope that's what we get in the end.

    Her exclamation that more guys should be bi was also pretty good, because it does seem like close to 100% of bisexual representation in media is female.
