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!
Tonight, one of the best comedies of the last two years returns when The Good Place airs on NBC at 8pm. It’s a special hour of the show, which follows the afterlife of 4 morally dubious humans, one demon torment architect, & the lovely and polite robotic helper Janet. In case you forgot what happened at the end of last year’s rollercoaster ride of a season, let me remind you! After escaping from the fake “Good Place” to the central city that all angels, demons, and judges live in, the human stars Elanor, Chidi, Jason & Tahani get their moment before Judge Gen.
Played by Maya Rudolph, the judge was ready to have them all sent to “limbo’ style” Medium Places until a more formal decision could be made. Michael made an impassioned speech on behalf of the humans, and instead of the Medium Place, they instead re-inserted them all back into life, at the moment of death. They saved them all with a slight “push” to prevent their disastrous deaths. Struck by her near-death experience, Elanor decided to get her shit together. She quit her job and started working soliciting money for saving the environment. She even became a vegetarian. But after a half year, she grew bored of being good and opted for a Taylor Spliffed concert instead of work. (Yes, that’s a reggae band that covers Taylor Swift songs!)
Michael, who was monitoring them all, sneaked down to Earth to leave her a hint that led her to Chidi. After a night drinking together, Michael asked her, “What do we owe each other?” which led her to a YouTube video of Chidi lecturing on ethics & morality. And like totally sane people do, she tracked him down and flew to Australia to meet him. Cue season three!
On tonight’s episode, “Everything is Bonzer,” Michael intervenes in the near-death accidents of Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason on Earth, in hopes that a second chance at life allows them to become better versions of themselves.
Catch up with the gang tonight on NBC at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching the premiere of the Murphy Brown reboot, because that’s just weird.
