    I know there has been some disappointment here with the current season. I mostly don't share it, although I will say I've found this season a bit less engaging than the prior two this far into their runs. A couple of great episodes, and lots of great scenes and moments, but the whole has felt a bit lesser.

    This episode, though, felt like vintage The Good Place. Brains, emotion, humor, lowbrow comedy -- it was all there, and all working. I thought it was great to see Ted Danson and KB spending most of the episode acting opposite each other in scenes without the other characters; really enjoyed their work here. The afterlife stuff (including the chart of Eleanor's bad memories, rivalries, family issues, and shames -- "Mister Peanut tattoo", ha!) was great, and a welcome return to the neighborhood. And Sean's back, with Vicky!

    Loved this one.

    It was great (and clever) to have a clip show with all-new scenes from previous seasons. :D

    I missed Vicky. Good to see her back.

    Also, an impressive performance from Bell with a lizard climbing through her hair.

    By far, the best clip show was this years IASIP ep 7 (also with all-new scenes)

    Or there's always Clerks Season 1, Episode 2.

    Yes, that's right. The second episode of Clerks was a clip show. :D

    Also in the grand tradition of clip shows, Community’s “Paradigms of Human Memory” (S2E21).

    The pet should have been a sloth, not a lizard.

    This episode was the best of the season so far, and I still liked this season though not quite as much as 1 and 2. There's so much more exciting stuff in the "good" place world than on Earth.

    Eleanor having a thing for Sam the Eagle.
    Jason's penguin (actually a real bird) in a Bortles jersey.
    Chidi captured in a floating purple blob (wrong memory).
    Tahani's "mirror centaur" of herself giving her grief.
    Shawn and co's secret illegal backdoor to Earth.

    That was my exact thought as well. In a show known for twists, they gave us a clip show...filled with new material.

    A little more difficult to have the "Eleanor's pet escapes" plot point with a sloth, though!

    Also, how does Mindy "trick us" into having a threesome? :D

    Just watched it.
    This was a great episode, not sure I'd call it a clip show, but I guess technically it was.

    I'd say it technically wasn't. It was in the form of a clip show, but all the "scenes from previous episodes" were actually new.

    Which is what I love about it...as so often, this show really messes with our heads! :D

    Since the show comprised of 'clips', it was technically a 'clip' show ;)
    But yes, I did not see this as a clip show.

    For some reason I thought we had seen them in bed at Mindy St. James before. Was that scene also entirely new? (In any case most, if not all, the previously on scenes were new)

    Technically, if I'm remembering correctly (which I'm probably not) we didn't see them in bed together at Mindy's, we saw Mindy's video footage of them in bed together.
