‘The Good Place’ Recap: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

‘The Good Place’ Recap: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
A review of this week’s The Good Place, “A Girl From Arizona, Part Two,” coming up just as soon as I leave H&m wearing more underpants than I had on when I came in…

In my review of last week’s episode, I noted that it must have begun life as a one-hour story before being split in two, which meant we’d spend the final season’s first two weeks in table-setting mode. Instead, this week’s “Part Two” immediately starts paying off many of the ideas established

This The Good Place review contains spoilers.

The Good Place Season 4 Episode 2

Now that’s more like it.

Through three seasons, The Good Place has aired two installments on one night for its premieres. This includes clear two-parters like season 2’s “Everything Is Great!” and season 3’s “Everything Is Bonzer!” Even season 1 had a seemingly unrelated double feature of “Everything is Fine!” and “Flying.”

Given that track record and the “Part 1” and “Part 2” after season 4’s first two episodes, it seems clear that Michael Schur and company envisioned “A Girl From Arizona” as one installment. It’s unclear why NBC opted not to air it all one one night. Given the conclusive arc of “A Girl from Arizona Part 2,” however, the network definitely should have.

‘The Good Place’ Final Season: Here’s What You Need to Know
The Good Place” is about to embark on its final season, and here’s what you need to know.

Across its first three seasons, the afterlife comedy from “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office” alum Michael Schur has proven itself to be one of the most narratively unpredictable sitcoms to ever grace television. Between Season 1’s paradigm-shifting twist, the multiple timelines and the many, many memory wipes since, one could be forgiven for needing a refresher to keep everything straight.

So, to best understand how “The Good Place” will come to an end, let’s start by going back to the beginning.

‘The Good Place’ Review: Season 4 Readies for the End with Divine Wit
Watching “The Good Place” is an oft-overwhelming experience. Whether it’s trying to guess what swearwords match up with “cork blork,” or identifying the casual burn tossed at an overinflated celebrity, or simply absorbing the love, trust, and goodwill baked into the core cast, Michael Schur’s NBC comedy has become an addictive rush and a mind-boggling comedy machine all in one. Season 4 keeps the twists coming and jokes flying, patching over some foundation blocks in the first couple of episodes before coming together for what looks like one last crazy adventure to hell– er, to The Bad Place and back.

At the end of last season, the merry gang of bad people who got good — Eleanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahani (Jameela Jamil), and Jason struck a deal with the Neutral Zone’s Judge Gen and the Bad Place’s Shawn (Marc Evan Jackson) to greenlight a new experiment to determine,

How ‘The Good Place’ Production Team Handled Location Challenges

How ‘The Good Place’ Production Team Handled Location Challenges
Searching for a path to “The Good Place” has been full of twists and turns for the cast of the hit NBC comedy, which includes Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. The same also could be said for Kimberly Wannop and Ian Phillips, the show’s set decorator and production designer, respectively, who for the upcoming fourth and final season, premiering Sept. 26, have spent almost all their time on location.

“Going into locations is always a challenge,” says Phillips, who joined the series in its third season. “You travel somewhere and are limited by when you can shoot, when you can prep and how much time you have there.”

Location shoots involve everything from painting to replacing entire rooms of furniture with the proper set dressing. Phillips also may need to design false walls if the script needs a different layout than a room presents.

Everything done on location needs to be meticulously planned,

Game Of Thrones, Chernobyl, and Fleabag Win Big at the Emmy Awards; Here's the Full List of Winners

The 2019 Emmy Awards took place last night, and there were a lot of fan-favorite shows that won big! I was personally very happy to see HBO’s Chernobyl win Outstanding Limited Series along with the two other awards it took home. It was also awesome to see Bill Hader win for Outstanding Comedy Actor for his role in Barry. That is certainly a deserved win as he’s awesome in that series!

Regardless of what fans thought about the ending of Game of Thrones, the series did win Outstanding Drama Series. I imagine it won for everything that it accomplished as a whole. Peter Dinklage also won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series again, which is great!

Then there’s the Amazon series Fleabag, which took home four awards including Outstanding Comedy Series. I’ve never watched the show, but plan to start watching it soon.

Emmys Truth Bomb: A Broadcast Show Hasn't Won Best Drama in 13 Years

In a world of more than 500 scripted programs, it should come as no surprise that traditional broadcast-tv fare has had a tough time, as of late, getting noticed by the Primetime Emmy Awards. But just how bad has it been?

Case in point, ABC, CBS, The CW, Fox, NBC and PBS this year accounted for 23 percent of all nominations, then went on to grab just 14 percent of the awards (or 18 out of 132 Emmys). In recent years, Game of Thrones, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Handmaid’s Tale and Barry have dominated Emmy Night — all hailing from premium cable or streaming,

The Good Place Cast Looks So Forking Cute at the Emmys, We Could Cry

  • Popsugar
The Good Place stars looked absolutely heavenly as they stepped out for the Emmys on Sunday night. In addition to looking 104 percent perfect as they posed for the cameras, the cast looked so forking adorable as they interacted with each other on the red carpet. Ted Danson shared a laugh with D'Arcy Carden, while Jameela Jamil cuddled up with her former onscreen husband Manny Jacinto.

It's safe to say that their appearance at the Emmys was bittersweet for fans. While the show was nominated for outstanding comedy series, it's also approaching their fourth and final season. We're certainly going to miss seeing these humans on screen together. See more photos from their night ahead.
