    Yes, indeed. I do miss the Good Place neighborhood, and it was great to see it again.

    I heard that when the neighborhood closed, they started shooting porn there.

    I liked that someone on the writing staff clearly has it in for Arizona, from the Jeff Foxworthy-book being the entirety of the Poetry section in the library, to the Bible being the only book in the Sex-Ed section.

    They've poked fun at Australia, Florida, and Nevada this season so no reason Arizona should be left out.

    I'm surprised no one has commented on last night's episode yet. Since no one else has, I'm going to refrain from discussing specifics just yet, but damn if they didn't just blow up the whole show again, and I have no idea what's next.

    The show was just starting to spin its wheels, so I was happy to see them move on to the next thing.

    Loved Michael McKean as the middle-aged Doug, though.

    I don’t know if “sitcom” is really the right category for The Good Place, but it’s pretty rare to see an action scene done that well in a sitcom. Well done and fun at the same time.

    Loved seeing Janet as a badass. The improvised pool game was a riot.

    Best ep of the season.

    Easily.

    Michael McKean, an awesome fight-scene, Jacksonville-style "pool," and a return to our beloved weirdness. Great stuff. The constant change-ups are exhilarating.

    Plus, "The Puking Moose Saloon."

    BTW, here's the rest of the cast teaching Ted Danson how to floss-dance:

    Loved the "Lost" homage introduction for Doug Forcett, complete with a waking-up eyeball closeup and a Mama Cass Elliot song.

    I really liked the exploration of The Good Place’s scoring system taken reductio ad absurdum, through Michael McKean.

    No episode this week because Thanksgiving, which makes sense, but also, sigh. :P

    My Facebook memories for today showed me a post I shared one year ago today in which NBC announced the season 3 renewal for The Good Place.

    I wonder how long it will take them to announce a renewal for Season 4.

    Memo to NBC: Go ahead. Pull the trigger. We know you want to. Doing this aanytime would be nice. Preferably before the end of season 3. so we can all rest easy.

    I was just glancing at the TV listings for tomorrow and noticed that The Good Place is not on because they are going to be airing something called Lego Jurassic World instead.

    It appears that The Good Place will return next week with one episode, followed by a hiatus for the holidays. Its winter premiere will be January 10, and the final three episodes will run consecutively.

    I understand taking Thanksgiving off, and I also understand not airing episodes around the holidays, but I'd really rather have the next episode tomorrow and then put the Jurassic World thing next week. Airing one episode after a two-week break and then coming back in January seems like an odd way to break up the flow of the storytelling.

    It might have made more sense to just have the final 4 episodes in January, but I'll be happy to see a new episode next week.

    NBC might regret not having The Good Place on as part of their lineup last night after all, since its replacement did worse than it. From TV Line...

    Yes, those LEGO specials were a bust.

    Here it is. Thank you, NBC!

    https://tvline.com/2018/12/04/the-good-place-renewed-season-4-nbc/

    The fact that the episode count hasn't been determined is a little odd -- I don't see why season 4 should be anything other than 13 episodes -- but at least they've renewed it.
