TL;DR – We come full circle
as we explore what happens when Eleanor has to take over for Michael, oh and
then the show kicks you right in the feels.
Score – 4.5 out of 5 stars
we have reached the end of The Good Place’s
third season, and what a ride it has been. We have been from Australia to The
Good Place to the Interdimensional Hole of Pancakes, and more.
Throughout that time we have discovered the source of the problem plaguing the
afterlife and watched as people continued to grow and develop even after they
are dead. With that in mind today we will be looking at both the season finale Pandemonium and also an overview of the
season as a whole.
So to set the scene, in last week’s Chidi
Sees the Time-Knife, The Judge (Maya Rudolph) set out the rules that
would be used to govern this new experiments, and of course both Shawn (Marc
Evan Jackson) and Michael (Ted Danson) were not happy, which probably means
that it is a fair system. But we all know that The Bad Place does not play fair
as they rattle Michael so much that Eleanor (Kristen Bell) has to step in a
pretend to be the architect. However, as we soon find out, that is not the only
way The Bad Place is playing dirty, because they are here to torture, and that
is what they are going to do. Now we will be looking at the episode as a whole,
so there will be [SPOILERS] ahead.
TL;DR – Season Three blasts forward at the speed of light blowing through what might have been a full season in a single episode
Score – 4 out of 5 stars
One of the things that you have to get used to when you watch The Good Place, is how quickly everything moves. Sometimes the show completely changed up its entire structure in a single click of the fingers. It also means that it does not waste any time whatsoever, and sets up premises that a usual sitcom would play out over a bunch of episodes or a whole season, and then resolve it in 20 minutes.
TL;DR – It’s back and it is just as clever and fun as always.
Score – 4 out of 5 stars
The Good Place, what a little gem of a show this is, a real cracker. When I first watched it I had no idea what I was getting in too, and like everyone else, I was blown away by the direction the show took at the end of Season One. To the point that even now when we are still talking about Season Three I want to be coy about what that changeup was in case someone has not seen it yet. For the last two seasons, I watched it all in a binge watch session, so I am interested to see how it plays out week by week for this season. Well with that in mind, let’s come Down Under say hello and look at Australian universities with flags in every room.
