    These first three episodes are a decent start to what could develop into a great series. I agree that I found the show thus far more humorous and inventive rather than genuinely funny, but I’m more than willing to let the show settle into its tone and comedic voice. What I find more worrisome are the characters, because I don’t care for any of them outside of the Danson-Bell-Harper trio (and maybe D’Arcy Carden as Janet, too, depending on how grating they may tend to write the character in the future). I’m encouraged that the show will be highly serialized, and I think the concept lends itself nicely to other major story arcs that could sustain the show into future seasons. I’m looking forward to seeing more!

    3rd ep. was my least favorite one. But things are starting to get interested it seems. I was worried that the whole show would be based on the rivalry of Eleanor and Tahani but now we’ll get some Michael-Eleanor collaboration.

    This show needs more ”bad” characters like Eleanor. That is its problem. Everyone’s so good and boring.

    The 3rd episode was about on par with the 2-part premiere. There is definitely a ton of promise here. I’m sure as we go along, the writing will become cleaner and the laughs more frequent, just like Parks.

    Definitely unlike any other comedy on TV, you can’t argue that.

    I feel like I am definitely in the minority but I somehow enjoyed the third episode more than the premiere. It definitely opened up the series in a way that I wasn’t expecting. Danson is really growing on me as well. After he was snubbed for Fargo I could see him making a pretty good run at (definitely) the Globes and (probably) The Emmys – would we say he is lead or supporting?

    Then again Schur has had HORRIBLE luck with his actors at Awards shows.

    That was one of the best network pilots in years for me. So creative, an excellent ensemble, and awesome production design. It reminds me a little of Pushing Daisies except less visual effects heavy. I really hope this show sticks around, NBC is in a bad place with comedies

    It turned out that Jason shouldn’t have waited three episodes to start talking. What a great episode. They paired perfectly with Eleanor and he is now a favorite of mine. A-

    Not a fan of this shows twisty endings.

    I think in terms of Golden Globe placement:

    Danson – Lead Actor
    Bell – Lead Actress (and please, folks, no more horse-s saying she’s supporting like those who insisted that’s what she was on House of Lies)
    Harper – Supporting Actor

    Love the show! Watched all four episodes today. I think Ted Danson should go supporting and could win at the Globes and Emmys for it. Kristen Bell is the clear lead, as she is the center of each episode.

    Also, LOVE D’Arcy Carden! So hilarious!

    Episode 1.08: Most Improved Player

    Seems the gig is up for the newest member of The Good Place; after her confession to the neighborhood’s citizens that she is the reason everything has gone haywire, Michael reads the riot act to Eleanor. Also, Chidi, who has also been harboring a secret, wonders what to do.
