I never noticed until this episode that Jason had a snorkel as his oxygen supply while inside the safe.

I enjoyed the premiere and last night's episode. I'm curious to see where they go with Janet this season.

I think there will be some kind of twist with the new character Simone.

I laughed so hard at this episode, between the Americana restaurant (especially the Mount Rushmore with Hasselhoff, Paris Hilton, Judge Judy and Hulk Hogan) and AUS Weekly magazine (Hems-Worthless talking about Larry, the brother they don't want you to know).

Kristen Bell posted a photo gallery on Instagram of some behind-the-scenes shots of the Cowboy Skyscraper Buffet. The closeup of the menu is great; my favorite menu item is the "O' Faithful" Chili, where they just blast a firehose of chili into your mouth every 10 minutes until you ask (beg?) them to stop.


The "Paunch Burger" is another item, for yet another Parks & Rec reference.

I liked last night's episode and I'm kind of glad that they aren't dragging out certain things.

Since they got caught at the end, I was assuming they wouldn’t be going in that direction again.

Yeah, I think that was just a pretext for Michael to open the door again, so that the team could see it.

Interesting that in the first episode, the doorman warns to only use the key fob to open the door when he's sure he's alone. That was Chekov's key fob.

My assumption is that they get sent to the Good Place maybe on a technicality or possibly a place just for them like the "mostly good place" but somehow mess it up again. Another cool trick might be if somehow they got the memories back for the essentially hundreds of lives they have lived by now since their original deaths.

I also agree that there has to be some twist with Simone, though she fits the group dynamic really well.

The problem with pretending to be a big dog is that the vet charges more than people doctors. You can't save on doctor bills by pretending to be a dog. This show is fake news and I wont be watching anymore. Also eating all that chili would have given him the farts. He should have been farting all the time.

God this episode was so funny. The Jeremy Bearimy explanation of time was excellent. "What's that dot?'


Also lost it when Chidi told his class to go up their own butts.

It was well established in this show how dumb Jason is. He had a scuba snorkel as his air supply to hide in a sealed safe. He still thinks Janet is real. The smartest thing he ever did was pretend to be a monk who took a vow of silence to hide.

So obviously, he found out the hard way that his plan was a failure. Or, judging by Tehani’s response, he didn’t learn anything as usual.

I love that even with the immense knowledge they were given and Eleanor’s determination to just go “be selfish;” she still did the right things. She wasn’t super pumped about it but she did them. The characters are growing despite their self intentions to stop doing so. Well, I’m not sure about Jason but the other three are.

Personally I cracked up the most at "get yourself a bigger chin guitar". They must go out of their way to give Jason the best lines. Was great seeing Janet's reaction to Jason getting married.

Had not idea Chidi was so ripped.

That's because he's normally wearing loose fitting clothes. I think this is the first time we've seen him with his shirt off.

When Jason and Tahani were running around giving away money, that was just Monopoly money they were giving out, right?
