The Good Place
« on: October 30, 2016, 03:01:24 PM »
I know there was Good Place talk in another thread but figured it gets its own thread.  Eight episodes in, probably my favorite new show this season, though I don't think I am watching too many new ones anyway.

Jianyu is my favorite.

The people from the Bad Place are fantastic.  I love their karaoke rendition of the Nixon Tapes.

It's a surprisingly good show, probably carried by the fact that the main cast has good chemistry together. But there's clever writing as well. I hope they keep it at 13 episodes/year and don't try to expand it.

Adam Scott describing how he would eat a unicorn this week was amazing. The cast is so damn great.

I just wonder how it goes on past 1 season, story line wise. I'm loving it though.

1 Hour Season Finale this week, after coming back for a few weeks

I'd love to see it back but the three week return and "Where does it go?" as DV pointed out makes me not optimistic.  I still really enjoy it and am banking on someone entertaining being the owner of the house they go to

My feeling is that, by keeping it to 13 episodes, Michael Schur has an idea of where to take this in a second season. But we shall see.

Totally did not see that coming, wow!

Can't believe those stick figure drawings of sex positions made it on screen.  Trombone!

What a finale!  I usually call lots of twists in sitcoms but did not see that.

That was fantastic and actually sets up for a second season, if it's picked up.

So glad.  I hope I don't get overly hyped for Season 2 but really enjoyed this.

I did! Really loved it. I had partially figured the twist out as far as
Spoiler: show
 it being hell
before the twist came but had not figured out the full works and really loved it. I'm really looking forward to the next season as the sense of humor is really up my alley.
