Good episode. Glad we have transitioned away from the "new" characters. With so few episodes left that sometimes felt like wasted episodes.

Welp, with a stellar episode, The Good Place is now on a break for 7 weeks.
https://www.newsweek.com/good-place-...finale-1473211
The show will now be off-air until Thursday, January 9, 2020, when it will air at its usual time of 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT on NBC.


A note about the last scene in the latest episode. this one:


In the Youtube comments, someone figured out that the reason Chidi wanted to see the note he wrote was because he knew Eleanor would read it off his glasses (like she did with the charades cards earlier in the episode).

Though now it airs at 7:30pm Central, now directly opposite "The Unicorn", and (tonight only) the "Jeopardy" tournament, which has just been killing it in the overnight ratings.

Man I'm really bad at watching stuff live. Enjoyed the episode, 3 to go.

Joanie Loves Tchotskies I like confident roller skate Chidi and nice guest spot

Believe it or not, I've only just gotten into this show and love it! I binged the third season this week and want to watch the fourth live with the nation. Hulu only has episodes 7 and up, is the rest worth buying digital at Amazon so I can enjoy the end with everyone? It's $3/episode so $18 for what I missed or just the whole season for $24. I don't usually do that but I want to watch the ending live with everyone.

Do you have cable? If so you can watch it on NBC.com / NBC app free. If not I think you get 3 freebies regardless.

We don't have cable, just OTA. I will look into the the three freebies possibility, good idea. That would cut it down to three to pay for, though I'll need to act fast before Episode 7 is down, I'm sure. I know it's all about money and contracts but I've always found it frustrating that I can pay for Hulu and not have access to all the new content, just limited. Oh, well.

You can also sign up for a trial of YouTube TV or a similar service to access the episodes that way, YouTube TV, for example, has access to NBC.com and also has the episodes available on their VOD.

Just be sure to cancel! It's like a 3 week free trial so cancel early.

I only say this because you know the full series will be available for a discount once it's done.

Re: The Good Place (NBC): The Fourth and Final Season -- premieres 9/26/19

After this week's episode I really thought it may have been the finale. I went and looked at the guide for next week, and it's scheduled for an hour with this description:

"Various conversations occur, between various groups of people."



I liked where they went in terms of The Good Place not being perfect. They sure seem to have managed to have solved that pretty quickly though, when the other team struggled with it for so long. (Larger donut holes!)

I think they summed up why they were able to solve it so quickly in the episode: the original Good Place committee, while well intentioned, were immortal beings with no real understanding of what it means to be human. Team Cockroach figured it out because they were actual humans, and two immortal beings who've hung around them a lot.

Also, I believe the suggestion was something like "make mini donuts bigger, but not just regular donuts (Dave will explain)." Personally, I thought it was a knock on the actual product "Hostess Jumbo donettes":

Really great finale. Hit all the right notes. I have no complaints except that it's over.

Great forking finale, man.

Kristen Bell doesn't have any non-voice work TV roles lined up...

This makes the lack of VM Season 5 even more annoying.

Beautiful ending. I don't get all weepy over shows usually but that finale really got me in the feels.

I finally watched the finale.

This really was a perfect show for me.
Lasted just the right length, was well written. Acted excellently.

I cried like a stupid idiot at the end.

Absolutely beautiful. This could have easily gone off the rails but it's clear they sat down and made a plan. I was happy with everybody's end though I wish Chidi would have given Eleanor a little more time, but I'm also glad she learned enough over the eternities to not demand it of him.

It's no longer at Amazon either. Only option is a $91 copy by a Marketplace vendor.

Keep trying. Took me a few tries, saw that $91 price, but came back few seconds later and got in an order...
Got in an order at Walmart before it went oos, but no pickup available and didn’t want to pay $5.99 for shipping, so tried amazon again and what do you know. I never get these mistakes. I’m psyched bc I’ve never seen a full ep but always wanted to...

I'm not sure how hard I should try. I've done a dozen attempts, but it's obviously a price mistake, so even if I get an order in, it may just be cancelled.
