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. 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. 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?

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.

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.)

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.
