Jan 13: My thoughts on Janet are colored by my thoughts on Aida from Agents of Shield.
Nov. 5: Maybe having some kind of injustice to address, some kind of mission, is what _makes_ the good place good for most of its residents. Maybe if Eleanor was gone, and everything really was "perfect", the actual do-gooders would be miserable.
Nov. 5: My theory: Tahani realizes that her real soulmate is in the Bad Place and undertakes an Orpheus-like quest to retrieve him.
October 14: Janet is the architect. Notice how she volunteered information that helped Eleanor avoid detection -- she is the agent by which Eleanor is allowed to be the one to out herself...Michael is the architect of the neighborhood, but maybe Janet is the real Architect (or something like that).
September 23: [follow up from Diablevert's delicious-in-retrospect: Michael clearly hasn't designed a perfect neighborhood, there's quite a lot he doesn't know or understand about people. The failures ... seem to be a whetstone for him, too, of a sort, meant to sharpen his understanding...]
...or maybe that's what he wants everybody to think. The "flaws" in the system could be exactly what each participant needs to grow. We grow because of well-calibrated adversity. Maybe he's a mastermind who knows exactly what he's doing.
September 21: I found myself wondering if the Bad Place sound clip was of a roller coaster. Maybe it's basically a fun theme park.
When you have great critical work and a critically acclaimed and nominated show like [Crazy Ex-Girlfriend], it deserves to be picked up. It has nothing to do with numbers. It has everything to do with how Crazy Ex, Jane the Virgin and the DC franchises have helped alter the perception of what The CW has become.
In the finale, when Jason thinks he has to go to the Bad Place, he tells Janet, "I'll miss you so much babe, promise you'll visit?" Janet responds, "I will not, it is literally impossible for me to do that." That's because she's already there.
I know this is a controversial statement, but I think Ted Danson is good at acting.
We knew, for instance, that we could never have a scene with Michael where one of the four others wasn’t around, because as soon as he was alone, he would drop the act.
Medium Place is real. The essential story of Mindy St. Claire’s situation is on the up and up.
In most of those scenes [where the Big Four might have figured it out], the writers would develop a backstory, for internal use only, of what [Michael] might have done if things had gone differently.
