    The Good Podcast

    Well, it’s no Entourage movie podcast, but Marc is filling the long hiatus between seasons with interviews with celebrity fans of the show, starting with Busy Philipps. He’s also asked for guest suggestions on his twitter.

    The Good Fight

    Did they change the aspect ratio of the show, or is that just something weird from the W Network in Canada? I thought the 2:1 aspect ratio was already a bit off for a standard lawyer show (it makes more sense for STAR TREK DISCOVERY and some of the Netflix shows that use that format), Now at what looks like 2.4:1 it just looks strange. Other than that, decent episode. Some of it was over-the-top, but that's kind of a trademark of the show. The Trump stuff is kind of ridiculous, as noted his base either wouldn't care about an abortion story or just wouldn't believe it, as they willfully deny everything else. Not sure what their endgame will be dramatically, if they'd have Trump tossed out of office on the show-world even if he isn't in the real world.

    The Good Podcast

    I only started listening to the podcast a few weeks ago, and quickly went through all the back episodes (some of them multiple times) and for the last few weeks it's been the second most eagerly anticipated thing of the week for me. Marc does a good job of keeping to the show's style of completely obliterating the line between the sublime and the ridiculous. I hope they decide to continue it in some form during the eight months (EIGHT FORKING MONTHS!!!!) that we have to wait for the next season. Maybe bring in some of the cast and crew for a more general discussion rather than an episode-specific one. Or maybe just talk about the Entourage movie every week...

    S03.E12: Chidi Sees the Time Knife

    Rewatching, just noticed in the background on the bridge that Trevor is still floating there from when the Judge tossed him earlier this season. Also noticed that Tahani completely vanishes in the second half of the episode. I don't think she appears once after they move to the Medium Place.

    S03.E12: Chidi Sees the Time Knife

    I'm pretty sure "Neighbourhood 2.0" is going to end up being a very temporary thing. First season finale we started off thinking they were in the Good Place and Shawn was a judge, completely flipping reality right in the middle. Second season finale we started with them in the Judge's chambers waiting for a decision on Good, Bad or Medium Place and quickly wound up back on Earth. So wherever we'll be 167 hours from now, I'm almost sure it won't be close to where we'll be 166 1/2 hours from now. I'm not going to pretend to be able to guess, but my money is on something involving the time knife. Basic storytelling, you don't introduce a time knife in episode 38 if it's not going to cut something in episode 39...

    S03.E11: The Book of Dougs

    Wow, this show does manage to get a lot stuffed into under 22 minutes. Even with only two episodes left in the season I think there could still be two or three complete flips of the status quo for the season finale. Glad we're finally going to see the Inter-dimensional Hole of Pancakes ("you don't really eat these pancakes, it's more like they eat you").

    HGN in the Media

    Yeah, that was painful. “Radio morning host, shock jock, Sirius”. Nothing from that, pass. No way should you waste more than five seconds with Stern.

    HGN in the Media

    I'm a bit disappointed it looks like the podcast isn't coming back, as that was more than half the fun of the show. As it is, it might just be fun enough to watch, but I'm not sure it will be when one of the more annoying guests come on. This one was pretty much free of really annoying behaviour. Have to say, now that Jason Ritter is about the age that his dad was when HOOPERMAN was on (which is oddly where I know his dad best), it can get pretty distracting how similar they look at the right angle. I think I'd have gone with Jason Ritter and Shiri Appleby for the final round. It really was a general failure on all parts, though. How long they took to get Kanye West, and failing to get Meryl Streep? I was amazed they did as well as they did in the second half to pull out a six.

    S03.E09: Don't Let the Good Life Pass You By

    I liked this one overall. I did wonder why Janet would be surprised by Doug, since her knowledge of all thing in the universe (up until she stepped through the door) should have included everything about Doug, as he clearly didn't just go over the edge in the last year. Maybe they're in the wrong letter of "Jeremy Bearimy" for her to know... The fight was a lot of fun, especially watching it again after listening to the podcast, which had the stunt coordinator on. Hilarious that Janet's stunt double was also one of Wonder Woman's stunt doubles. Am I the only one who thought, when Janet went through the portal and then Janet came out seconds later that maybe it wasn't the same Janet, similar to the Good Janet / Bad Janet fakeout last year (which also resulted in Shawn being thrown across a room). Maybe another Bad Janet, or maybe a different Good Janet working for the Judge? Probably not, but that's going to be in the back of my head next episode.

    Even worse than I thought, if the schedules I just checked are right, they're skipping two weeks, coming back with just one episode, then off for a month before coming back for the final three, in a new time slot. How does that make sense?

    What the fork, NBC? Show's only 13 episodes, with a double episode opener, you really can't give it 12 consecutive weeks, you have to put a two month gap in there?
