If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/24/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

We’re here once more at the precipice of doom or redemption as we slide into the season three finale of the best damned sitcom on television in 2019, The Good Place. Last week started with a meetup at the IHOP between our gang of dearly departed afterlife denizens, their demonic pal Micheal, & the super-powerful judge (guest star Maya Rudolph). The Interdimensional Hole of Pancakes was a confusing junction of ten dimensions, which made it a colorful but dangerous terrain. Jason likened it to a drug trip as Tahini insisted that they were trapped in the pattern from a 2012 collection dress. When the judge showed up, she was pissed, especially at Michael, who had stolen a book from Accounting.

Michael tried to make a case for all of humanity, but it was Jason who ultimately convinced her that she’d never understand how hard it was for humans unless she went to Earth. She agreed and made a massive journey in what was basically an instant for us and the gang. Somewhere in there, Jason and Janet professed their feelings for each other and become a couple again. The judge soon came back exasperated, claiming “Earth is messed up, y’all!” She summoned Michael’s old boss from Hell, Shawn, to confer on the state of affairs. While this sit-down was occurring, Chidi accidentally becomes/sees the Time Knife, which was hilarious.

They agreed upon a new “Fake Good Place” to test if humans can be redeemed after death or if they all actually deserve eternal punishment in Hell. The new neighborhood was being built in Mindy’s backyard in The Medium Place. It was there that we saw Derek had become much smarter after billions of resets. He bragged about now almost having a normal-sized penis, too. There will be one year to track the improvement or lack thereof for the four souls about to enter this new experiment. Derek offered to help Janet make all the “Janet babies” that they will populate the new neighborhood with, and this made Jason predictably jelly. Just before the launch of the new “Fake Good Place,” Shawn told Michael that they made a Michael suit to torture Chidi, Jason, Elanor, and Tahini with if he loses the experiment. This led to him having an anxiety attack right before the 1st new dead person awoke in the afterlife in the waiting room outside his office. Cliffhanger!!!!

This show is so good, and the direction it is taking now almost assures us a season four. I can’t wait to see how they wrap it up tonight. And we know that next year it’ll feature all the main characters from the first three season, plus out new four subjects.

On tonight’s episode, “Pandemonium,” various events occur, in a certain specific order.

To see how pandemonium and “in a certain specific order” go together in this season finale, tune in to NBC at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be tuning in for the season premiere of Broad City and new episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Gotham, & Star Trek: Discovery.
