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.

by Anonymousreply 108Last Saturday at 7:16 AM

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.

by Anonymousreply 109/22/2017

Sorry, I didn't mean that he doesn't speak, I meant the way he talks sounds strange to my ears. Like he struggles with a speech impediment of sorts.

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"? 🤔🤔

It's amazingly funny and sharp and quick. I can't believe it's a sitcom on NBC.

THAT TWIST! I was expecting a twist, so I was floored.

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

Me too. That first season twist and Shaw was so perfect that I was apprehensive about the new season. I think it is also a little better than the first season.The existential shock reaction of Michael was a highlight.

The whole cast is firing on all cylinders. This show will be shown in philosophy classes for a decade.

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.

by Anonymousreply 3711/03/2017

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.

I look through The Good Place subreddit quite a bit and many people there are expecting other twists to be revealed later on. I think there will be a twist in which it was revealed Michael was an angel at one point and then got sent to the Bad Place.

I hope this show gets another season. It doesn't do that well in the ratings, but it might get renewed because due to the critical praise. As for Emmy nominations, I think D'Arcy Carden deserves a nomination. She won't get one because she's pretty much unknown with Emmy voters.

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. Did you actually pitch these specific characters and relationships - a bad angel trying to get ahead by "innovating" new types of torture, one of them being an ethics professor, one being a complete idiot - was that your pitch?

by Anonymousreply 5511/21/2017

r53, I refused to watch the show to find out the characters. Just it was my premise.

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.

by Anonymousreply 5611/21/2017

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.

They just renewed it for another season. NBC seems ok with not having huge ratings. I remember reading it somewhere that it does better than Superstore in the ratings.

by Anonymousreply 6111/22/2017

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.)

by Anonymousreply 6211/22/2017

Mike Schur told NBC in the beginning that he only wanted the seasons to be 13 episodes long. So that's probably another factor into why it keeps getting renewed.

The show just got two Critics Choice awards. If TV critics were Emmy voters this show would easily get Emmy nominations. I doubt it will get nominations for the Golden Globes or the SAGs. Voters for various awards shows tend to only like broadcast shows that are on CBS or ABC.

[quote]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. I doubt other cable networks would show reruns.

Thanks, R103! Interesting... so it WILL be someone audiences will instantly recognize.

Anyone want to venture a guess who it might be? (Does anyone know who D'Arcy Carden idolizes?)

I'm starting to think it will be a woman, since all the people (well, demons) in power thus far have been played by men.

by Anonymousreply 104Last Friday at 9:40 AM

R104 I also think the judge will be a woman. My prediction for the judge reveal is that the four make to the judge's office in that portal and at first we see a figure with their backs of them and the four humans mistakenly assume the judge is a man and then we see the figure turn and it's revealed to be a woman.

by Anonymousreply 105Last Friday at 10:02 AM

[quote]Anyone want to venture a guess who it might be? (Does anyone know who D'Arcy Carden idolizes?)

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.

by Anonymousreply 106Last Friday at 5:21 PM

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.
