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"? 🤔🤔

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.

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 thread has reminded me how unappreciated Cold Case is. It's a shame it is still not on DVD. The music rights will be a nightmare; however, considering the show started in the DVD era, it's a little surprising they didn't finalize those contractual details to ensure the show got a release in physical and digital formats.

I used to watch a lot of crime procedural shows like CSI, Law&Order in addition to Cold Case. But, Cold Case was the one procedural show that I would have loved to have on DVD. Whenever I would see CSI, L&0, and NCIS DVDs in stores I never wanted to buy them. Sadly, Cold Case is pretty much forgotten by many because ION stopped showing reruns a couple of years ago.

A couple of months I listened to a podcast that D'Arcy did. I think it was the Box Angeles podcast. She got into the improv scene in New York and heavily praised Amy Poehler and UCB. But, being in entertainment, D'Arcy probably idolizes a lot of people.

There are threads on The Good Place subreddit where people are taking guesses on who is playing The Judge. One person guessed Bill Murray and said something like "He would probably do a one off". The person who made that comment ignored the fact that in Jameela Jamil's interview she said that the person is joining the cast. It has to be someone who is either returning to TV or a movie actor or actress who is dipping their feet into the TV world.

There are only two more episodes left in this season, so they could make the penultimate episode a "filler" (i.e., what happens when Eleanor and company are spit out at other end of the portal, and then go looking for the judge), and then reveal the judge at the very end of the *next* episode/season finale.

The season-one finale ended with a huge twist, so my guess is that they may do the same in season two. End with a bang and leave people clamouring for more.

I was kind of let down by the judge reveal. But, it was still a good episode. D'Arcy Carden deserves an Emmy nomination. But, sadly we all know she won't get it.

There are only two more episodes left in this season, so they could make the penultimate episode a "filler" (i.e., what happens when Eleanor and company are spit out at other end of the portal, and then go looking for the judge), and then reveal the judge at the very end of the *next* episode/season finale.

I was kind of glad they didn't drag out the judge reveal until the very end of the season finale. In a previous episode, I got the feeling that Michael had previously interacted with the judge on another case. He seemed quite nervous when the humans asked. it will be good to see Michael help make a case for the humans.

I actually really enjoyed last night's episode, and thought Maya Rudolph was great.

And Bad Janet... I mean... what's not to love? Totally agree with R110 about the Emmy nod.

Ted Danson deserves an Emmy nomination. I think he'll end up getting snubbed. Emmy voters in the past year or two seem to favor broadcast sitcoms like Blackish and Modern Family. Ted probably deserves an Emmy nod more than Anthony Anderson does.

D'Arcy Carden deserves Emmy love. But, Emmy voters will probably give that god awful Leslie Jones from SNL another Emmy nomination.

Agree with R116 and R117 -- that was disappointing, and Eleanor back in her old life with her old friends was boring. It was a largely Chidi/Jason/Tahani/Janet/Miche - al-free episode, and didn't work. The show is great because of the ensemble, so cutting most of them out of the finale was a mistake.

If the writers had decided this season's big finale twist would be sending everyone back to their lives, that should have been the very last shot (i.e., Eleanor "waking up" in the parking lot... cut to closing title card). That way, the creative team could have spent the next eight months crafting a much stronger "back to reality" concept/storyline.

Seeing what each of their respective Middle Places might have been like, and having each one languish there for a couple of episodes, would have been a better choice, IMO. Or having them all actually make it to the Good Place with some kind of catch/condition.

I don't want to see these characters on Earth, bound by the conventions of the real world. I want to see them in the weird, bizarre, fantastical Good/Bad/Middle Places, with people like Mindy St. Clair and Sean and Trevor and Derek.

I missed the other characters in the finale. I thought it was dumb for Janet to be with Michael tracking the humans on those ticker things.

I didn't get why Janet would need to be tracking them on old fashioned tickers. She's a robot with all the knowledge of the world. I'm wondering if they somehow stripped her of her powers and in a sense is being punished along with Michael and they have to track the four through that methold.

Didn't like the finale. Too much about Eleanor, and nothing surprising there. It's like whichever writer was suppose to take charge of this episode finked out and they only had a couple of hours to put together a quick half hour. And kinda failed.

I think next season there will be a Jason and Tahani centered episode. But, it will be interesting if ever pair back Jason with Janet as he would have no memories of Janet. I predict that somehow Janet and Michael will be turned into humans.

Oh, I really hope you're wrong. Can you imagine how dull it would be to have a Janet WITHOUT all her cool abilities?

As for Michael behind the bar, that wasn't the Michael we've grown to know and love -- riddled with anxiety and completely confused by human emotions/ethics/etc. The writers dropped the ball and suddenly turned him into this sage, insightful source of counsel, which wasn't true to the character. So I fear how uninteresting it would be having him be human ALL the time.

I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate how r105's post accurately predicted that there'd be some kind of fake out with the identity of the judge, but instead of mistaking a woman for a man, they mistook a burrito for Maya Rudolph. Because this show is forking bananas.

I didn't really care for the finale but I have hope that it'll be better once we have a third season for context.

I like that they went with someone like Maya Rudolph as the judge. She's not an unknown, but not extremely well known. Tons of people on reddit kept hoping for Amy Poehler as the judge. I don't think she would have played a good judge character.
