Season 2 was a great run !
I hate season finales… I mean I love them, but I hate them at the same time if you know what I mean. It’s just that the whole season builds up to the finale, but then when it’s there you realize : oh gosh, this is the end & you gotta wait an entire year to find out what’s next. It’s not cool, I wish my favorite TV Shows would never take breaks. I know it’s not reasonable 🙂
I started The Good Place on Netflix a little bit out of boredom (that’s actually basically how I start anything on there) but it was so good ! I got caught up into it completely, I loved the concept, and the storylines and it’s so much fun ! Made me laugh a ton. Kristen Bell is absolutely glorious, I adore that actress and I think this role of Eleanor Shellstrop fits her really well. Everyone’s pulling off their characters in a great way, and that’s what makes the show even more enjoyable.
This is not much of a review as it is a talk about the season 2 finale. I’m just left with so many questions ! It didn’t really end, it’s an open ending and I dislike those because I’m impatient and I cannot believe that it’s gonna take forever for them to follow up on it. A lot happened this season, but if I fast-forward it I’ll put it this way.
First after Eleanor and her friends figured out they weren’t actually in The Good Place that it was a lure, they tried to escape it without success. Then they got their memories wiped out and they had to relive variants of their time spent there. Lastly, the demon known as Michael decided he didn’t want to be a “bad guy” anymore and helped them escape where they were all heading, which is The Bad Place.
Wasn’t easy, they had to meet a Judge who was a little cuckoo like most of the characters in this show, and they came her-the Judge and Michael the-demon, to an accord as to (I guess) put them back where they died. Like a resurrection ! Just so they could see if their time spent in the fake-Good Place made them into better people, and if they deserved to go to the real-Good Place after they pass. Very exciting stuff, except it ends right there and then… and we don’t get to see where Tahani and Jianyu went.
RATING – 7/10 Nice ! I love the ideas and where it’s heading, but I wish it was a longer episode because there’s so much left out… for season 3.
