Season 2 started with 800+ reboots in, I think, 22 minutes. They established the premise, got some great jokes out of it, and moved on to the next plot twist. Here, we spent 45 minutes getting the group back together, which we knew had to happen going in.


Spoiler:
You're thinking of the second aired episode of season 2. The premier was 45 minutes of pretty much just the first reboot. The next episode is the one that went through 800+. I wouldn't be surprised if season 3 is similar in that regard: getting the expected stuff out of the way in the premier and jumping into twists starting with the next episode.

Here is a really good video on the show's philosophy.

I dunno, I laughed quite a bit during it. And I felt the comedy was so different between the different characters, it was great! I'm just looking forward to seeing more of it.

The first episode back this season was definitely a bit heavy on the setup. Don't get me wrong, I still got some decent laughs out of it, but I'm hoping the newer ones have a bit more substance to them.

I guess I should be used to it by now but this show constantly surprises me with how much it's willing to break the status quo. I was ready to face several more episodes of the test and demon-on-demon shenanigans.

Chapter 31: Jeremy Bearimy
Spoiler:
Michael and Janet documented everything in hopes of influencing the judging process. Learning the points exist means you can't earn any more. The humans hope to help other humans improve their afterlife totals. It looks like they're setting up a twist where the characters of The Good Place warn people via a work of fiction based on M & J's notes, which is the show The Good Place that we're currently watching. This also explains why the "ripples" are things that happened in real life.

Of course, given how unpredictable this who is, that it looks like they're doing this means they're doing something else.

Chidi is ripped. I assume he goes to the gym, can't decide which exercise to do, and does them all.

This is what I was talking about regarding the premiere. I'd grown used to a premise change every episode, and was dissapointed when they kept everything on a fairly straightforward path.
