Watched the last episodes of season 3 and it’s like this show never gets tired to be good and clever.December 5, 2018 at 8:13 pm #1202690421
Team Cockroach, the nickname of Good Place fans, got an early Christmas present with the renewal of season 4. And now, on Golden Globe nomination day, may we call this show, as well as Danson and Bell, GG nominees.
Episode 3.10: Janet(s) (fall finale)
Written by Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan; directed by Morgan Sackett
Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason are now in Janet’s endless void, an escape plan needed when demons came a-calling out of Shawn’s portal to send them back to hell. It’s up to her to protect them as Michael tries to get intel on how the points system works for Good Place/Bad Place separation from the accountant who assigns those points.
The series returns Thursday, January 10 at a new time of 9:30PM ET.December 6, 2018 at 2:38 pm #1202691805
Showrunner Michael Schur tweeted this message this morning: “Hi, there is a new episode of #TheGoodPlace on tonight! It’s the last one of 2018. Please watch it. Unless you have never seen the show before, because if you try to start tonight, it…will be difficult, for you.”
GAMECHANGING EPISODE ALERT?!?!??!?!!??December 6, 2018 at 6:44 pm #1202692008
My mind is pudding right now, after the best day the show’s ever had, awards-wise, and especially after the last half hour I’ve seen. D’Arcy Carden wrapped up the 2019 Emmy supporting comedy actress race tonight with a performance for the ages. The main cast didn’t show up until 24 minutes into the episode. And what a goddamn forking cliffhanger.

Give D’Arcy Carden her Emmy now!December 7, 2018 at 5:31 am #1202692356
My favorite episode of the entire series. D’Arcy Carden is a revelation, and it will be so upsetting when she is snubbed for the third time for her amazing performanceDecember 7, 2018 at 5:44 am #1202692430
Jameela was right, give D’Arcy all of the Emmys. She was serving Maslany / Paulson levels of multiple character Acting goodness. It’s the least she deserves after being snubbed twice in a rowDecember 7, 2018 at 7:36 am #1202692975
D’Arcy Carden needs to get nominated next year and submit this episode. If it’s the tape system, she will definitely win by default regardless of whatever the other nominees will submit.December 7, 2018 at 8:20 am #1202693092
Is it possible for Carden to add the four characters to her Emmy submission like Maslany does every year?December 7, 2018 at 10:42 am #1202693296

You can probably also add ‘Neutral Janet’ to that! There’s also the genius of Eleanor-as-Jason-Janet, and Jason-as-Eleanor-Janet, both of which were clearly defined separate characters! One actress, 8 characters in a single episode, IMO there’s no one else anywhere near her for the Best Supporting Comedy Actress awards next year!December 7, 2018 at 10:48 am #1202693309

And I’d like to say “end of conversation” to that! 😁December 7, 2018 at 2:04 pm #1202693555
Everything is…..VOID-ed with the final Good Place podcast of the year with the woman of the half-hour (and 8 different characters), D’Arcy Carden, episode writers Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan and director Morgan Sackett:December 7, 2018 at 8:54 pm #1202693901
I’m going to be sooo pissed if D’Arcy Carden doesn’t get nominated next year. also, since I haven’t been posting on the forums lately, hello to any of my friends who see this.
