    Not 100% clear if this is episode 1 and 2 since it's an hour long "two parter". Not sure if there are TWO titles either. My TiVo just shows the one.

    Anywho..


    YAY! It's back. I love Gossip Girl so much!!!

    Food puns are a thing in Australia. "We Crumb From a Land Down Under"

    Thought the final extra person to join the study would be Shawn. Nope. But still someone from the real Bad Place. Will be fun to see more of Adam Scott playing a jerky guy.

    There were two titles ("Chapter 27" and "Chapter 28") and two director credits, so technically it must be two episodes...not that it really matters from a practical viewpoint.

    Why oh why isn't this show on Blu-ray?

    It’s two episodes, same as last year’s premiere. So, we already have only eleven left!

    Hmm

    My TiVo labeled it "Everything is bonzer!". Thought they had names like that . I can get a mod to correct.

    Overall I thought this was a terrific premiere. It had to churn through some plot machinations to get the four of them together again, but that business was done entertainingly and efficiently. And I like that you can see little signs of progress in all the characters, despite their having backslid: Eleanor seems genuinely less selfish, Tahani at least a touch less vain, Chidi at least slightly less paralyzed (or at least, for not as long) by indecisiveness, etc.

    And what a great conceit to keep the pressure on from Shawn & co., making it clear immediately that this isn't just going to be another round of the humans making each other better, only in a different location. I too assumed it would be Shawn walking into the study, so what a fun surprise to have it be Trevor.

    Ah. The Good Place is back.

    No, you had it correct. The title cards are always chapter numbers, but the episodes have names too. Episodes one and two of this season, chapters 27 and 28 overall, are collectively titled "Everything is Bonzer!".

    I like the perceptive commentary about Richard Marx... the music of the devil.

    Thought it was much better than last season's premiere. Though the whole experiment is a bit of a cheat what with Michael constantly going back and giving them "pushes." But it will be interesting to see where they go with this premise. I have no inkling which is a good thing. :up:

    Although of course he got caught, which will make it more interesting!

    He's from the Bad Place. But it was never clear to me he was the head guy.

    Always nice to see Adam Scott show up!! I don't think he's the devil, just a demon. Also always love when Mike O'Malley appears on a show out of nowhere.

    And of course Michael got caught going to earth! Also loved that after he saved Tahani the crowd started chanting for her sister!

    I loved Michael's interaction with the Doorman. That was my favorite part of the episode.

    Yeah, my bad on calling Trevor the devil. I was remembering him as Shawn's boss, which might make him the devil, but he's not actually Shawn's boss, is he? So he's an especially gross demon first recruited by Michael and now Shawn to help out.
