Tonight, The Good Place returns to NBC to kick off its final run of episodes. Before the break, Michael and the crew had uncovered the flawed point system that was sending nearly every human to the Bad Place and presented this information to the judge. They were given the chance to perform a new experiment in order to prove that humans could learn to be good but ended up just barely failing the test. The judge then decided that best thing to do was to just reset the Earth completely and let the humans evolve all over again for billions of years (though she would miss Timothy Olyphant and Justified). Before she could press her clicker to reset the Earth, all of the Janets appeared and stole it, playing keepaway and hiding it from the judge. So the judge started going through the Janets one-by-one, marblizing them while looking for her clicker. They now had only about 30 minutes until all the Janets and then Earth itself would be gone. So Michael woke up Chidi and restored the memories from every one of his hundreds of iterations, hoping that this would help him come up with a solution.

Will Chidi and the others be able to save humanity by finding a new way to properly evaluate people in the afterlife that will also be acceptable to the demon Shawn? Or will the judge wipe out all Earthly existence as we know it? The Good Place is such a fun, smart show, and I’m going to miss it when it’s gone. I can’t wait to see how these final episodes play out and how this amazing series ultimately comes to a close.

On tonight’s winter premiere, “You’ve Changed, Man,” the group works to negotiate an afterlife plan with Shawn and the judge.

See how the group’s plan goes tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Young Sheldon, The Unicorn, Carol’s Second Act, Evil, Superstore, Will & Grace, and Perfect Harmony.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the pilot of Deputy last week and am excited for a new episode this week. The premise of an old-school deputy becoming sheriff when the previous sheriff dies suddenly is a great idea. Bill is not good at listening and continues to put himself out into the action because he doesn’t feel he can do his job from behind a desk. He may be on to something. Maybe if more of the head officers in charge got out into the field more often, they’d have a better understanding about what their departments needed. My favorite character is definitely Bill’s new driver/bodyguard, Bishop, because while she’s supposed to be there to protect him and keep him out of trouble…she is usually suggesting a way for him to shake things up again. Last episode when they rode on horseback to rescue a kidnapped child was exciting and a nice change from the usual car chase scenes. Going forward, my hope is that the writers continue to push boundaries while using this talented cast to the fullest.

On tonight’s episode, “10-8 Outlaws,” struggling to come to terms with the new responsibilities of his role as sherriff, Bill refuses to stay out of the field when a criminal to whom he is personally connected resurfaces. Meanwhile, two new deputies come into the picture: Gabriel Luna, a training officer overseeing Harris’s class of new deputies, and Charlie Minnick. Also, Undersheriff Jerry London and Bill continue to wrestle for control of the department.

To see how much Bill shakes up the department this week, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Young Sheldon, Law & Order: SVU, The Unicorn, The Good Place, Perfect Harmony, Beat Bobby Flay, and Evil.
