The Good Place S3E9 review: "Janet(s)"

In Janet’s void, everyone is D’arcy Carden. Think Funny Tatiana Maslany in a blank, white space. It causes Eleanor to have an identity crisis, which is calmed by a momentous smooch. Michael and Janet pull the gang through to Accounting, then send them up a pneumatic tube to the ACTUAL FORKING GOOD PLACE!

Javier Matusevich and Sarah Gardner

The Good Place S3E8 Review: "Don't Let The Good Life Pass You By"

Michael and Janet discover the system is rigged by spending time in Canada with miserable, point-confined Doug Forcett (and kicking Shawn/demon butt). Eleanor expresses her love to Chidi just as the gang absconds to Janet’s void. By dying! NBD.

The Good Place S3E3 Review: "The Snowplow"

The new Good Place episode is out and Team Cockroach reactions are mixed: can the writers get us there already? Walk through the inter-dimensional door, but be careful where you step, because season 3 has some surprises up its sleeve.

The Good Place S3E2 Review: "The Brainy Bunch"

The mighty cockroaches gather once again to discuss the merits and greatness of The Good Place and its writers. It’s business as usual in an episode full of bad Australian accents, parodied Americans, and sweet sweet lemon bars.

The Good Place S3E1 Review: "Everything Is Bonzer!"

Team Cockroach recaps the season 3 premiere. Our gang is back on Earth! But they revert to their old patterns, so Michael resorts to unauthorized “nudging” to stop their backsliding and get them to team up. MRI proposals! Terrible disguises! And…a Taco Bell and a Pizza Hut!

Evil Giggle

Rarely do we devote an episode to a television comedy, but “The Good Place” earned our love and your attention. It’s a single story told over 13 half-hour episodes, with twists and turns and a lot of laughs. Why has Eleanor been sent to heaven by mistake? Why did a 70s dude high on mushrooms figure out the secret to eternal life? Why do we keep being gently reminded of Douglas Adams? Why is there a lava man in the conference room? Why does purgatory feature warm beer and Eagles live albums? We break it all down, and leave space after the Spoiler Horn to discuss the many surprising plot developments as the season went along.

Jason Snell with Kelly Guimont, David J. Loehr and Glenn Fleishman
