  1. Just got done watching the season finale, "Ragtime." "Chelsko's" desperate bids to push her "brand" were hilarious. I loved how she said since she's making a living as a singer, she had to bring it, and then she was one of the weakest singers. Karma came for her at showtime, which I have some sympathy for, but maybe if she'd put less time into her ensembles, she would have been better prepared. Was this the first episode without regression therapy? I didn't miss it.
  2. Watching this now ... wow. You can practically see Biggs and Lawson setting up the jokes. This is SO bad.
  3. Arthur showed up and wondered why they were in a drag club; still bummed out, he chooses to sit on the sidelines. Ginny opens with "Ava Maria" in choir robes, then strips down to one of the drag performers' costumes and the rest of the choir -- also decked out in the drag queens' costumes and wigs -- all bust out into an "Ava Maria"/"Do You Believe" mashup, backed up by three Cher impersonators and guest starring Adams' husband in full drag gear. Arthur watches from backstage, and eventually comes out wearing a boa and joining in -- they wrap the song, then he kisses Adams square on the lips, which takes them and everyone else by surprise.
  4. I know the Good Place has been in stasis, to an extent, for hundreds of years, but you'd think they'd realize that will change with an influx of millions of people. Also, I'm surprised they'd jump straight to letting everyone engage in assisted suicide, as opposed to, say, starting new programs and activities: Chidi teaches philosophy and learns guitar from Jimmy Hendrix; Tahani becomes a talk show host, etc. Basically, institute things for people to work on and toward, helping one another, as opposed to just letting Janets fulfill their every material desire. The Fake Good Place had people working in roles, and activities for residents. Did anyone figure out what the magically soothing chime probably really means? Jason and Janet continues to be all tell, barely show for me. I do love Michael knowing Jasonw ell enough to nail his perfect home. I really, really will be annoyed if next week's episode skips a Jeremy Bearimy or two and ends with our crew ending their existences. Just putting it out there. I would also like to go back to my point earlier this season that we could have used half as much Brent and gotten more time for things like, I dunno, not fast-tracking the realization that the Good Place is full of happiness zombies.
  5. Why the hell did these jackasses even have Davonte? It’s sad to see Bow now after watching her be such a sweet kid on Mixed-ish.
  6. If Jessica was really as smart as she thinks she is, she would have asked questions about the job and her responsibilities before day 1. I will miss the boys, though. But it's probably good for them to be back in school, should they choose.
  7. There's something to be said for taking a slower pace to storytelling. Thanks to Servant, I've learned that I can tolerate glacial storytelling for two hours or so, but not for 10 painstaking episodes. Also, I'd like to say I can't believe Sean served a bunch of unknowing people placenta, but he's such a pretentious prick about food that it's pretty on brand for him. Poor Tobe, though.

    I respect your angle, but I stand by what I said. Amy has consistently shown an inability this season to effectively manage situations and stand up to her staff, from Dina to Jonah to the men chastising her while she was on the phone during the ridiculous #NotAllMen meeting.
  9. I lasted 20 minutes. I liked the dad the best. Nicholas has to be on the spectrum too, right?
  10. Oddly, I really enjoy this show, but the formula is starting to get to me. I did like that they gave a bunch of 60+-year-olds the freedom to not panic if the show wasn't 100% perfect; that was different and fun. That being said, this cast was amazingly talented. Definitely in the top two for me in regards to actually being people I'd want to hear and watch in a musical!

    He agreed to become floor manager (replacing Mateo, who replaced Amy after her promotion) last week, when Amy was too incompetent to regain control over a coup by the male floor workers.
  12. That's what I took it as, too. While it's been 500+ years since a human ascended to The Good Place, it's a strong bet that NO demon has ever been there. Michael's likely wondering if he's earned the trip, as well. I can see this ending with him leaving the foursome behind to go back and oversee the testing for another eon or so, to feel like he's truly earned his place -- but then again, that's also why I suspect that won't happen. Because I've rarely predicted anything on this show.
  13. I've never really been a fan of hers, since back when she was on The 4400. To be fair, she's usually in thankless roles like Edie, though, so I feel like I can't definitively decide if I like her or not. It actually feels like there's another team writing the last two episodes as opposed to those before the break. The only one who still actively annoys me is Bechley. He's just a straight up sociopath and I don't think there's any way around that; Hutton seems to agree and leans into it, IMO. Edie's a mess, but I don't despise her as much now that Tim knows.
  14. Please tell me I wasn't the only one annoyed by the Boy Band Math, given there were five members in New Kids, N Sync, Backstreet Boys and even O Town.
  15. Agreed with the question about wondering why Sarah's mourning everyone who knew her before the boat, and forgetting her mom is still alive? Also, I'd love to see how someone explained to the President exactly how Oliver made this big sacrifice. It was a lovely speech, but literally no one else really should have realized the magnitude of the threat, right?
