Anybody watch "The Good Place" and think Manny Jacinto (Jason) is adorable?

Well, I do. Plus, he plays an idiot EDM, frat boy surfer dude so well.

So fucking hot. But he has some issue with speaking or is that just for the show?

I thought his Asian soul mate in the second season opener was equally attractive.

So I saw the first few episodes from the first season.

Only enough to know that there had been a mistake where she was sent or so she thought.

I saw the premier and am I to surmise that she really did end up in hell and the Ted Danson character is a demon and they are torturing all those people?

Like they could do a better job of torturing themselves by thinking they didn't deserve heaven and thus are miserable? Unable to really enjoy "heaven"? 🤔🤔

The second season is hitting all the right notes, and by turning The Good Place into Michael's own personal hell- brilliant.

I guess I just wasn’t looking for a twist in a sitcom. Even though I had grown increasingly interested in the show over the course of the first season, I was as in the dark as the cast was when they did the table read for the final episode of season one.

Watch the video at the link. It is so awesome watching these people finally piece together the crazy sitcom they have been filming for the last few months.

In the first season, I figured the twist out around when Jason revealed that he wasn't really a monk and was another bad person like Eleanor. The writing on the show is good and the cast has great chemistry. I like that the character of Janet was expanded on in this season. I wonder if there will be some kind of twist where it's revealed that the Good Place Janet was somehow designed as a trap for Michael.

This isn't exactly an earth-shattering premise - dead people think they're in heaven but it turns out it's hell. It's just an expanded Twilight Zone episode. The trick is what you do with it.

It was over 10 years ago and at a pitch festival hosted by (wont say) and his [again won't disclose]. We just went around to different tables pitching our ideas to these "executive" or people they sent. This asshole shot down my finished spec, was like what else you got, I said 2 or 3 other things and he was like, no, no, don't like it. Then I said my pitch about a woman who gets into heaven by a technical mistake and he said, that's not bad.

Don't know who he is.

R56 How do you know it's similar if you haven't seen it? Again, the premise of a woman getting into heaven due to a technical mistake seems too broad to be able to claim it. Besides, the end of the first season reveals that it wasn't a mistake at all and she actually went to hell and everyone is pretending that it's heaven.

The Good Place may do well on Netflix, since it's short enough to bingewatch easily. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which has low ratings, does well on Netflix--particularly in the UK--and that has something to do with it being renewed (that and the prestige factor for CW.)
