Can't believe season 2 is over! Obviously, not as good as the first season but I loved all the twists and the twist in the final episode wub.gif

The final was okay, but it really doesn't seem like they know where they're going with it all ...

I predict that the 4 of them are going to find each other unknowingly in the real world and work together to do something good for Eleanor’s charity and Tahani will throw a party or something and they’ll get into the good place 😂

Just finished this, and yeah, I agree with the idea that they don’t seem to know where they’re going with this at all, I feel like each seasons gonna end up feeling like a sort of rehash of the previous one, but I guess if it’s still fun I can’t complain

I actually really liked the second season, probably a little bit more than the first. I loved the twists and turns and the Trolley problem episode had me in stitches.

Really very curious to see how they develop the show from here.

For me this has to be on of the best shows from the past couple of years

That would be awesome! And I agree, it does feel like they'll come into each others lives someway or another. Really can't wait to see how they manage to wind Jason into the thread they've started.

Feels like Elenor is the central thread that improves all of them and thus gets them all into the Good Place


Whatever happens, it feels already like Season 3 has a lot of promise.

So I started this series a few weeks back as the concept intrigued me - Season 1 was one of the best first seasons of a comedy I've seen in a long time, so much development, brilliant characterisations, moral points and shock twists that all worked so well, I was srsly impressed.

Season 2 has certainly been a bit of a step down (although the second episode with the constant reboots had me howling), but it's a little hard to follow such a concept and I think they've done some great character development, just perhaps a little focus on the romances would do it better.

The finale, as good as it was, did signify that this wouldn't work as a really long running show as it did seem a bit overly familiar, but it at least kept things going and I will still definitely be watching a season 3. Bear in mind we still haven't seen what the ACTUAL (omg that Jameelaism wasn't even intended but ha) good place is like so surely that would be something to touch on next time, I'm hoping there's a little bit more to it than just a fabled heaven land

i don't think they will ever show either good or bad place in the future. or it will be something very abstract.

either way i LOVED the final two episodes, as well as the entire season. so much development and amazing twists. kristen is obviously one incredible scene stealer but i am LIVING for janet (TOTALLY saw the 'bad janet is good janet' twist coming!) and maya *.* hopefully there will be more of the judge in season 3.

this might be the most intelligent and funniest sitcom of the recent years.

Can't believe anyone would call this a step-down or don't think they know what they're doing

Always saw this on netflix but only just got round to watching it the other day. Absolutely brilliant and so addictive, one of the funniest comedies I’ve watched in a while.

I marathoned it a few months ago, really loved it. Incredibly funny and intelligent as well.

I loved season 2 just as much as season 1. Not sure why people think they don't know where they're going with this. However, I do think they should wrap this up with Season 4, it's not one of those comedies that can go on forever. Also, I hope we get a glimpse of the actual Good Place next season.

I finally finished this last week after bingeing season 2, idk why i struggled to get into it before :') I love the direction they're taking it in and it's going to be so interesting to see how they all cross paths in their real lives given how different they all are. I'm here for Chidi and Eleanor now, such cuties who genuinely make each other better people, so I'm well aboard that ship. Unsure about Jason and Tahani though, they feel a little too forced together for convenience?? Wish we'd seen the full version of the reboot where Tahani was Eleanors soulmate though kink.gif

This is absolute SHITE

It reminds me of that programme with Rachel's sister from Friends, the one who wanted the baby. She had amnesia and they had flashbacks to ''bitch' moments. It comes off as contrived and like they couldn't find a way to fit a funny moment into the storylune.

This is ham fisted, cheesy, and with the worst set of characters I have ever seen. Hi I am going to bore you about philosophy whilst being a goody goody whilst forcing myself onto you as your soulmate skweeee! Hi I am a monk WHO DOES NOT SPEAK. Hi! I am the controller with a MESS of a personality. Terrrrible.

Unless they go back to earth and away from that fake ass set, I am not interested. Whose idea was it to have a teeny tiny computerised set with a limited number of characters?

The jokes too man aliiive. Embarrassing death ... trolleys into a penis enlargement truck. Yaaawn.

Not going to lie, I kinda agree with you. I liked the show to begin with, but now I basically force myself to watch it because my friend loves it. tongue.gif

Michael hates it, the ultimate quality mark

I can't wait for this to return. It's such a smart, witty heartwarming show.

This

It's such a ham-fisted, stupid show. It is unfunny, forced, completely contrived, with the cheapest storylines it can find. The characters are terrible. Chidi is the worst character in YEARS. I'd say only the Cleveland Show bears come close, or Stuart from EE. He is such an insufferable bore - philosophy, moaning, stating the obvious, hanging around to say how good he was in life.

The cut aways do not work and are ENTIRELY derivative and contrived, amped up but yet so flat with as bitchy as situations as they can think of to highlight how oh so unsuitable she is for this cheesy af 'paradise'.

Is it paradise, or just American fantasy, to have a STRANGER enter your house and say I'm your soulmate surpriiiiiiseeee? Soulmate surpriiiiiseee! SOOOULMERRT SERPRERRRSSEEE! Anddd then live in a TIIIINY, supposedly eventless, town with 300 people for ETERNITY? ETERNITY. They sounded bored by the storylines and painful dialogue two days in. They should be glad someone is there that shouldn't be to give themselves something to react to!

Also tough shit if you want to use um ALL OF ETERNITY in a tiny plastic bubble learning languages. Oops. Translaaated!
