Chidi and Jason's pizza conversation was absolutely amazing, and heartbreaking
I'm so sad. I did not like how sad that episode made me
I have a theory. If the good place is like "heaven" and the bad place is "hell", then the medium place could be more like purgatory - or a place for a human to better themselves before being accepted into the good place.
I think the experiment succeeds, and the judge effectively keeps Michael and friends in the medium place to enjoy their own version of a good place while helping humans better themselves going forward.
I've only seen half the finale though because my DVR got fucked up last night so need to finish that tonight now that it's on Hulu lol.
Tahani's arch nemesis basically being Perez Hilton was perfect
I legitimately think Chidi erasing his memory was a dumb move.
Like yeah, you don't like seeing your ex, but everyone is gonna have to deal with that negative bullshirt in this season.
Also, idk why Ellanor is acting like she can't just tell Chidi everything. Like they've had their memory erased hundreds of times, and he literally just died, so i doubt he's gonna be skeptical.
Yeah I was actually thinking that too, I don't think they really justified Chidi's decision very well. And yeah why couldn't they just get him back up to speed but leave the part about him dating the girl out?
Wow I’m not ok with all of the things I’m feeling after watching this.
Even though we have no big cliffhanger this time I think they still set a few potential bombs up for the next season premiere with two more people still left to be introduced into the neighborhood (Maybe Eleanor’s mom and either pillboi or donkey doug since he died?) and evil Michael as a lurking issue.
Chidi needed his memory erased so he doesn’t blow their cover, ruining the experiment and getting sent to the bad place to be tortured for all eternity, not cuz he didn’t want to see his ex
If its just about him not blowing their cover then it doesn’t make sense because one of the others will likely blow it when interacting with Chidi. It would have made more sense to reset all four of them again for this test. That’s a retread of earlier seasons but it feels like this is a retread anyways.
Funny episode though.
Honestly it just doesn’t make sense for the Judge to have allowed such a blatant sabatoge of an experiment. Like this is a big deal and really matters, it doesn’t really seem to fit her character to allow that.
I love Maya Rudolph
Maya's character is easily my favorite on this show outside of the main cast
I didn’t love that finale, and it certainly didn’t feel worth waiting weeks for with the hiatus. Wasn’t very funny, which is fine but the stake changes are starting to get stale. They unerased Eleanor’s memory this year, so there’s no reason for them not to be able to do it again, especially if they want to maintain the show’s group dynamic.
Overall there were a few of the show’s best episodes this year, but it was the weakest of the three seasons.
Idk I think allowing The Bad Place to get away with picking people they knew feels very on brand for the judge. It didn’t break the rules she originally set, so I don’t see why she’d go back on the original rules.
Also, in regards to Chidi, there’s a ton of people in this new “Good Place”, the likelihood of Tahani or Jason (the ones that I think are most likely to mess up their cover) interacting with him for long periods of time seem unlikely. Chidi was the one who had to interact with the new people the most so it makes sense why he would need to be wiped.
The logic of that decision can be argued all day but the more I think about it the more I’m rolling my eyes at resetting being used again and again.
Remember when Chidi saw the time knife ?
Oh fork I just finally watched last week’s episode in preparation for tonight’s new episode and I am now realizing it was the finale!!!
Yeah it actually didn't really feel like a finale, it would have made total sense for the episode before to be the finale and the last one to be the next season premiere
Binged the three seasons this week. This is fantastic and creative... and weird in a good way. Nicely filling the void left by Community and The Last Man On Earth for me.
I gotta pour one out for Last Man on Earth. Such a fantastic show that got cut short in such a lame way. His ideas for the next season sounded hilarious :(
The Last Man on Earth got such a raw deal. How nobody picked that thing up will always mystify me. Feel like it would have done so well on a streaming service like Hulu or Netflix.
I had this theory that Forte and co. might have pitched it as getting picked up for a final season, and nobody wanted to pick it up just so they could finish the show. It's probably completely wrong but idk, it's what I've thought for a while now.
I wonder how much longer this show will last. Obviously everyone who sees it loves it, and the ratings seem to be solid. But from a narrative/story standpoint, i think shows like this tend to benefit from having fewer seasons than more (The Leftovers vs. Lost). Of course, three seasons in and it’s been a beautiful show, so i trust the writers.
It's already becoming annoying and repeating itself ad nauseam. They should end it next season.
