    I don't think I've felt this way during a finale, the pique and joy and sense of loss, since All Good Things finished Star Trek TNG.

    I'm new to this thread but did quickly parse earlier posts before adding this one. I have been travelling and so haven't yet seen the final episode. I watched only a few seconds of this particular clip because I suspect it contains spoilers. My apologies if it has already been seen by most of you.

    I only got around to the finale today, and it was all I could have hoped for. A very satisfying conclusion to a masterfully funny and thought-provoking series. Bravo to all concerned!

    This looks like the really short aftershow that was broadcast as part of the final 1.5 hours time slot.

    Yes, that's exactly what it is. There are spoilers in it because it was devised to be aired after the episode.

    I think it's pretty clear what happened here. When the finale clocked in at 50 minutes before commercials, NBC needed to add that to the final half hour so that it could be padded out to a 90-minute total running time. A 50-minute finale would only have left the 10 minutes of commercial time if it was aired in an hour-long block, and of course that wasn't feasible. So this was created to fill out the rest of the time once they added in the normal commercial load to the finale.

    Mike Schur explains that in the final episode of The Good Place The Podcast. :)

    Also...the final two episodes of the podcast were wonderful, with Mike Schur talking about the show in toto, and the conclusion, and the stripes on Eleanor’s shirt, and terrible puns.

    And one last chance to hear Marc Evan Jackson say, “This [forking] show!”

    It would be nice if the podcasts were archived on the Blu-ray release as bonus features. I doubt it, but it would be nice to have them all there as part of the package.

    One of my favorite endings to any tv show.

    Very emotional. Very sad. Very thought provoking.
