HURRAH it’s back!
Honestly, Jon’s lucky I waited until he was home from work.
We didn’t even have to wait that long after only recently discovering The Good Place, but we binged the first two seasons so quickly.
We were so hooked we even stayed up late… I know right, the highest of accolades with two small non-sleeping humans.
I’m not going to spoil anything as it’s only just been released, but I’m happy to say it’s picked up exactly where it left off. The same great jaw-dropping twists in the writing remain.
Writer and creator Micheal Schur, has an outstanding comedy CV – Parks and Recreation, The Office (American) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine – it’s no wonder those episode endings leave me absolutely begging for the next.
Damn you Netflix for making us wait a week per episode!
Kristen Bell is hilarious as completely selfish screwed up millennial Eleanor. The mums reading this will know her better as Anna from Frozen, it just goes to show her acting range, I’m hoping they’ll get her singing in it somehow!
If you think DJs never do anything after radio, ex-Radio 1 DJ, Jameela Jamil is proving that theory wrong. I even had a Sim named Jameela as I was listening to her show, playing Sims stuck in a traffic jam (Jam – Jameela, it made sense to me!). Ok ok, she’s done tonnes of other stuff too, but this is her first acting role and she kills it as completely self-absorbed and desperate for approval Tahani.
I have to say I love Janet/bad Janet – how can you not? She’s obviously a fan favourite too going by the cosplayers from this years SDCC (ahhh to go to SDCC – wistfully daydreams… one day…). I digress. I do wonder if Janet was always planned to be so integral to the show or her development is a response to her
popularity. Good job this isn’t Game of Thrones!
Chidi’s anxiety gives me anxiety, and his indecisiveness makes even me frustrated. did you know the actor that plays Jason, Manny Jacinto, has a degree in civil engineering – he plays clueless very well!
I can’t do an overview of the cast without mentioning Ted Danson – the eternal being (his role not my random bestowment). He’s utterly perfect in this role.
If you love dark comedy, surprising twists and the odd dose of self-reflection – you absolutely have to check it out.
What are you watching at the moment? I’m always on the lookout for new shows.
