After last night’s wondrous episode, D’Arcy Carden, episode writer Megan Amram and editor Eric Kissack talk Jeremy Bearimy. Wonder if that little thing of D’Arcy trying to off Megan in the #AnEmmyForMegan finale comes up 😁October 19, 2018 at 4:29 pm #1202657303
So now we know from last night’s instant classic two things, thanks to Michael; first, those 802 reboots lasted a total of 300 years, and second, the average reboot lasted 2.6 years. So right now, they’d be in the year 2318, non-Jeremy Bearimy timeline.
Kudos, also to cinematographer David Miller and editor Eric Kissack for their reference quality work. This was the single best episode of network TV, at the very least, this year. It’s gonna take something really special to top it.October 19, 2018 at 4:44 pm #1202657308
This was a very good episode, but it wasn’t anything spectacular. It wasn’t any better than any of the top ten episodes of Parks and Rec, for example.
In other news, Chidi is fine.October 19, 2018 at 5:41 pm #1202657342
In light of the events of last night’s episode, looks like we bid farewell to Kirby Howell-Baptiste, who did IMO a great job as a recurring regular in the first 5 weeks of S3.October 20, 2018 at 5:06 am #1202657544
I’ve just watched the latest episode, and I will say it clearly: The Good Place is one of the most interesting experiments in this decade of television. The way they play with time is particularly intriguing. There’s a linear level of the storylines and, at a deeper position, a “Jeremy Bearimy” time line where the characters change their bad habits, then get to become better people, then fall back, then they’re back on track, and so on, but it’s not even ciclic because places changes and so do patterns of behaviour, temptations and obstacles. I don’t know whether this post makes or not, I would be clearer in my mother tongue. All that to say that this episode made me realize how deeply I love this show, and while I recognize its flaws which are not that rare, to be honest, I do find them equally interesting.

‘Jeremy Bearimy’ is the new ‘timey-wimey’ 😀 😀October 20, 2018 at 11:41 pm #1202658042
Fascinating episode. It is marvelous the way this series always choose a unexpected and creative path to follow.October 24, 2018 at 9:53 pm #1202661200
“The Good Place is amazing PR for humans, not least because they created it. For the length of an episode, at least, it’s a wonderful life.” Victoria Segal, UK Sunday Times.
Episode 3.6: The Ballad of Donkey Doug
Written by Matt Murray; directed by Rebecca Asher
Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason, their hopes of reaching the Good Place destroyed, now resolve to help their friends avoid the here that awaits the four of them. The Soul Squad’s journey begins with Michael and Tahani traveling to Florida as Jason reunites with his dance crew. Chidi, with an assist from Janet’s makeshift virtual reality simulation, gets help in resolving a problem,October 25, 2018 at 7:37 pm #1202661873
A good transition episode where we find out a lot about Jason and his unknown before now family (yes, he has one). We bid actual farewell to Chidi’s GF, and Eleanor sure seems like she’s bisexual.
Next week, drama galore; Eleanor and Tahani are gonna bring the emotional fireworks upon their offspring.October 25, 2018 at 7:47 pm #1202661884

This week’s podcast is laugh-out-loud brilliantly funny. The Ballad of Donkey Doug was funny enough first time round, but listening to Manny and Mitch dissecting the utter ridiculousness of things like the Shark Tank pitch for ‘Double Trouble’, and their perfectly weird father-son dynamic is even better! One of the very best tie-ins to a TV show I’ve ever discovered.October 29, 2018 at 6:22 pm #1202664611
If this is to be believed: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/showatch/good-place/listings/
There will be 3 new episodes for the remainder of the year (11/15, 12/6 and 12/13), then a mini-hiatus until the new year (January 3, 2019 at the earliest).October 30, 2018 at 3:33 am #1202664858

That’s deeply annoying. We’re up to episode 7 (of 13) this week, and with a new episode scheduled on Nov 8th, as well as the dates you’ve mentioned, that’s up to episode 11, and somehow they’re holding over just 2 episodes until the new year? What appalling scheduling, practically designed to screw ratings massively! Why would they do that? If this show gets cancelled because the ratings drop off a cliff, I’ll be so mad!
