Janet and Michael address recent disturbances and reveal some backstory. A new person is made. And needles.

So the manual says that Janet can be disposed of in an interdimensional suction tube. I'm hoping it's not the last time we'll hear about those. We're starting to build up a bit of geography about how the world works here. There's the neighborhood, the Bad Place office, the "neutral pocket dimension beneath the shapeless time void" where the good Janets warehouse is, Mindy's Medium Place, the train, and Janet's void (unclear if this is the same void as the warehouse). I'm loving the glimpses "backstage" and want more.

Highlights:

Shining a light through Janet's ear produces a rainbow out the other side

"We got robbed. They took the walls they took the floor and we were standing here the whole time. These guys are good"

That sound Janet makes as a gazillion coins pour out of her mouth

Needles!

Janet chanting "kill me"

The callback to the giant bowl of paper clips from Season 1 (specifically, an episode that was also about friends)

Pudding shop puns, particularly "I tought I Saw a Puddin Vat"

"That's a human problem, so maybe we should consult our most problematic human"

"Eleanor told me that instead of being sad, I should go get it, girl. So I'm going to go get it, girl."
"Get what?"
"Unclear. I'll get everything just to be safe."

I am so angry that this show is so damn good and that I have to wait an entire week to see more. And I'm especially angry to learn that they're going to do a mid-season break again after next week's episode and we won't see the rest of the season for a few months. Not cool, guys. Not cool at all.

I know it it completely doesn't work the broadcast TV business model, but if ever there was a show that should be released in season-long chunks, Netflix-style, this is it.

Also, Janet replaced Jason with ... a Jason!

It seems like a big deal that Janet just created a person. Once she tires of him, is removing Jason Mantzoukas the same as killing a living thing? Janet's newly acquired near-godhood, together with her still inhuman obliviousness, is such an interesting variable to add to this show.

Now we have a character who's not human and not a demon, and not an AI/godlike being like KarenJanet. Will Vicki find out? Will Janet treat him like an object, a human, or something else? Will he be interacting with the humans and how will it be to have two Jasons?

Hmm. I just re-watched the Derek introduction again, and:

Michael: Janet, you can't make a person!
Janet: ...I know. But I did, though.

Neither one specificially say that Derek's human. Does person mean human?

We haven't seen any of the 4 original humans try to send themselves anywhere (the void or otherwise), right? They've gone on the train to the Medium Place, but they haven't tried to go anywhere by willing themselves there.

I can’t be the first person to notice that Doug Forcett, Calgary stoner who got the afterlife 92% right while on a righteous mushroom trip in 1978, is almost certainly Michael Schur-in-his-high school-yearbook, right?

It's not. It's a friend of someone, possibly a friend of Michael Schur. I can't remember where I read that.

AH-HA! Here it is.

So who’s the man behind this prophetic lover of mushrooms? That would be comedy writer Noah Garfinkel. Boasting an impressive resume that includes New Girl, The President Show, and Kroll Show, Garfinkel explained the simple story about how he became the face of the legendary Doug Forcett.

“My best friend Joe Mande writes on The Good Place,” Garfinkel told Decider. “Mike Schur’s wife J.J. [Philbin] writes for New Girl, which is the show I write for, so I knew a lot of Good Place people from the Parks and Recreation days. They needed a picture of someone who looked like a ’70s stoner, and I guess that my general aura said that for what they needed.”

Doesn't Jason ask if Janet can take him to her boundless void? I can't remember what she answers, whether she said no or that humans couldn't go there. I want to start exiting conversations by saying, "I need to go to my void now."

This episode settles whether or not Michael is still messing with the humans, right? He would only be sincere with Janet, and his feelings of affection and friendship are real. Ted Danson shouting that she was his friend made me misty for a second. I loved this episode.

It's interesting that Bad Janet can barely say anything nice before her face melts off, while Good Janet repeatedly tells (white) lies with only "minor" glitches. Would this be because she's telling lies to be good or to spare people's feelings?

I am continually charmed at how funny and sweet this show is while still being an amazing, in-depth look into what it means to be "good" and "human." The cast is so amazing and it's joyful watching them together. I am always sad when the episodes end. I want more of this show all the time!
posted by darksong at 8:34 AM on October 27 [7 favorites]


I forkin’ loved this episode. Danson is the best actor on television. Michael is an incredibly difficult role to play, which most viewers won’t give a second thought to because comedy doesn’t count as acting as far as our culture is concerned (drama is “acting”; comedy is “being funny” — just look to all the brilliant comic performances in films over the years from which actors were not even nominated vs. the overdone biopics and disabled/dying treacle performances that win year after year).

Michael is becoming something more than his programming, right along with Janet. And D’Arcy Carden can match Danson pace for pace, which, like much of what is happening with Janet, shouldn’t be possible — but she did it anyway.

The humans are winning! Go Team Cockroach!

I'm not sure that she was consciously lying. Her marriage to Jason is multiple reboots in the past, and while the "ride or die" protocol seems to have bonded her in a permanent way, that also seems to be deep in whatever passes for Janet's subconscious. It's an internal conflict she felt but couldn't articulate until Michael told her what happened.

I really love that this show holds on to past actions like that and sees them through. In a lesser show, Janet and Jason would have been a one-off plot line, never to return. This isn't that show.

I'm kind of curious as to what sort of explanation Vicki gave Chidi to get him to allow being covered in needles. As far as Vicki knows, the humans still think this is the Good Place, so anything done for/to them needs to be couched in some sort of "This is good for you" manner. Ultra-Acupuncture?

Absolutely agreed about the weird weightings people give to drama vs comedy. I'm reminded of a random Vince Gilligan interview when Breaking Bad was just really taking off--the topic of casting Cranston, who was previously mostly known as sitcom dad, came up, and his immediate response that he didn't see any weirdness in the casting choice they'd made whatsoever. That just about every time, he'd take a "comic" actor, because comedy is much harder--that a good comic actor can do drama much more often than the reverse. It made the sound that truth makes it when it is said and stuck with me ever since.

Also, Custer's Last Flan made me bark laughter loudly enough that i hope I didn't worry the neighbors.

What stuck out to me (aside from all the funny) was that I expected Michael to consult Chidi and possibly the others about the ethics of killing Janet when she has clearly attained a not-insignificant level of sentience. It would have been a logical plot beat given the last couple of episodes. But instead, Michael doesn't need to do that, because his own attachment is telling him he can't kill her. That is a big development because our attachments are really the biggest factor in any decision we make, regardless of the ethics. Michael couldn't understand the decisions that humans make until he understood that.

The question the bond between Michael and Janet raises is whether she would protect Michael if the Bad Place folks try to punish him.

Also, it occurs to me that we've never really met anyone from the real Good Place. There's the woman who was in Mindy's intro video explaining the Medium Place. But I think that's it. Janet is designed for The Good Place, so she gives us some hints, but I wouldn't say she's from there.

I want to meet someone from The Good Place.

AV Club: Nothing on TV is doing visual humor like The Good Place is doing visual humor
It’s a microcosm of The Good Place, multiple aspects of the show’s production—acting, writing, direction, cinematography, editing, set design, set decoration, post-production, and visual effects—working in harmony to create something that’s cute and clever from a bird’s-eye view, but gets smarter and weirder and more distinctly its own thing as it comes into focus.

ahhh that was so good. ditto everything said so far. Michael is slowly learning to be less like a demon and more like a human, with fear of death and the value of friendship.

another reason she can lie is possibly from all the reboots she's been through, advancing her abilities. whereas the Bad Janet can't lie at all without imploding since she's version 1.

Michael's regret at thinking he was responsible for Janet's glitching called back, for me, to the first season when he kept pretending to blame himself for all the problems with the neighbourhood. We have no reason to believe he's acting with Janet, so that suggests maybe he's become more like the person he played in S1.

This episode was so good I watched it twice today!

All of Janet’s responses as she realizes things - about her lying pattern with Jason, that she lied to Vicki, Michael declaring “Friends!”, etc. are just perfect.

Note that on the day Michael steals Janet he is wearing a regular (non-bow tie) tie. However, Janet’s warehouse outfit includes something that could pass as a bow tie. Inspiration for Michael’s outfits?

Janet and Bad Janet both wear the same earrings, suggesting they are more functional than fashion.

Watched it again this morning because I love it. I especially love the narrative freedom of this show, and I think it comes from having such a robust premise. Like the first season, Eleanor was the main character, because she had the biggest arc, and now it’s Michael. And that makes perfect sense.

I can’t wait to see where they’re going to go with Janet. D’Arcy Garden deserves bigger roles.

This episode is maybe the first time we can be sure that Michael is expressing affinity for someone without lying. Even up to this point, with Team Cockroach, there's been a very real possibility that he's been lying. The friendship with Janet, however, seems real, since killing her WOULD solve problems without complications. I wonder if that also shows that Michael is starting to grow some ethics? It's an interesting idea that our ethical frameworks are first developed with people who know and love, and only then can we extend them to Others. In this case Janet is also a super-human being, so perhaps Michael sparing her from marble-dom is a first step towards an actual humanistic ethical code.

Just rewatched and noticed for the first time - 19 minutes in when problematic human, Eleanor, is giving Janet advice on her human problem -- this weird music starts playing in the background. Precisely after Eleanor says: "You don't need to worry." *MUSIC STARTS*

"You're awesome. You contain all the knowledge in the universe. You have a rippin' bod. And you can literally do anything! This is just a blip."

Janet doesn't say anything but she squeezes her arms to her sides, lifts her shoulders and smiles. The music crescendos. Is this the moment Janet becomes self-aware? I don't know what the music means but I know the music means something. It was too out of the ordinary to not mean something! WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?

I seemed to have recently replaced heavy drinking with eating too much homemade pudding. I've learned a lot about pudding in the past month or so. Flan, custard, fool, junket, blancmange . . . . I was halfway kidding when I told my husband that I think pudding in the Next Big Thing, and we discussed possible pudding restaurants and names for them. Then, just two days later, this episode! And thus continues my life-long ability to trend-spot but always in such a way that leads me not to money or fame.
