What happens when they make it up to The Good Place?
January 23rd, 2020 under Jameela Jamil, Kristen Bell, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 8:30p, it is time for the second to last episode of The Good Place on NBC. After four seasons of wondering what the real Good Place is like, we finally get to see.

Will it be everything that Michael (Ted Danson), Eleanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahini (Jameela Jamil), Jason (Manny Jacinto) and Janet (D’Arcy Carden) thought it would be? Is it even better than that? Before they find out, it is time for them to go to a party in their honor with some the greatest through time including a pretty neat guest star.

While they are all in heaven, I am in hell because I do not want this show to end.

The Good Place finds another way to surprise us
January 16th, 2020 under Jameela Jamil, Kristen Bell, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


Last week on The Good Place, Michael (Ted Danson) and Sean )Marc Evan Jackson) came up with a way to save Earth. They will give humans a test to determine which place they should go to. the good one or the bad one.

Now that they are on board, they need to get all the other demons to be so too. That is a lot easier said than done. However, that is not as hard as finding out who to test. Eleanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahani (Jameela Jamil), and Jason (Manny Jacinto) have all the files to pick the best people. Yet, they are going to look at their own files first. What will they learn about themselves and each other on NBC tonight at 8:30p?

Lots of shocking things, but not as shocking as the reveal at the end. But I have said too much.

One thing I hate to say is that we only have two more episodes after tonight. Why does this show have to end? Wwwwwwhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyy?

Jimmy Fallon and Kristen Bell sing a History of Disney Songs
November 13th, 2019 under Disney Kids, Jimmy Fallon, Kristen Bell. [ Comments: none ]


Kristen Bell is one of the stars in Disney’s biggest movie Frozen. Now that we are days away from the sequel’s release, she is doing press for the film. Yesterday, she stopped by The Tonight Show, and she and Jimmy Fallon paid tribute to Disney’s musicals by singing a medley of the studio’s greatest hits. They did a good job and all, but Todrick Hall’s mashup is much better.

You should listen to both today because they will put in you in a happy place.

Must See TV is back on NBC with two new funny comedies!
September 26th, 2019 under Kal Penn, Kristen Bell, NBC, Superstore, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


NBC is known for Must See TV on Thursdays and this season they are not disappointing. They start it off at 8p with Superstore. The season premiere picks up a few hours after the season finale when Mateo (Nico Santos) was taken away by ICE.

Jonah (Ben Feldman) has gotten everyone together from Cloud 9 for a vigil for Mateo. Since no one knows what to do, they sing a song that is perfect for them. You have to see it, to believe. That and to find out that Lauren Ash, who plays Dina, can really sing. You go girl.

Now, it is time for everyone to get back to work. Corporate has sent over a new worker to replace Mateo and everyone hates Glen with one “n”. Glenn (Mark McKinney) with two “n’s” hates him the most. Therefore, when they come up with a way to get rid of him, he is all for it.

Meanwhile, Dina is still mad at Garrett (Colton Dunn) for letting her birds accidentally go free, so she continues to torture him. He feels bad, but that is not good enough for her.

Talking about couples, Sandra (Kaliko Kauahi) wants to let everyone know that she is engaged but no one will let her talk.

When it comes to talking, Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom) has not spoken to her BFF since he was taken away. It is just too hard for her. Amy (America Ferrera) decides to kidnap her co-worker and take her to see their friend. Will she go inside?

All of this leads to a moment that will have everyone afraid, very afraid.

If working at a Big Box store was as fun as they make it look on Superstore, we would all be working at one!


Then at 8:30p, Bradley Whitford is back for another comedy on NBC. Perfect Harmony is something to sing about.

Arthur Cochran (Whitford) is the former chair of the music department at Princeton. After his wife died, he pretty much lost his will to live. He returns to her hometown to bury in her in the cemetery at the church she loved, but he is told there is no room. Therefore, he has come to confront them to let her in.

On the way there, the very drunk professor stops in front of another church with a choir rehearsing. They are so bad that he goes in to tell all of them how awful they are. When he is done, he passes out.

The next day, when he wakes up, and they ask him to coach their choir. He doesn’t want to do it, but then he gets his reason. Now he has to work on them to make them all singers whether they like what he says or not.

Ginny (Anna Camp) is a single mom, who is a mother to the group. She is also just so gosh darn nice. Adams (Tymberlee Hill) is not that nice, so she does not want to take Arthur’s advice. Jax is adopted and he is the Kumbaya one of the group. Wayne (Will Greenberg) takes a lot of crap Arthur, but he has potential. Although, not as much as Shep (Geno Segers) who has the deepest voice you will ever hear.

They are a dysfunctional bunch, but together they make beautiful music. That is why this and Carol’s Second Act are tied for my favorite new comedies with Sunnyside in a close second place.


Then at 9p, The Good Place begins its final season. Michael (Ted Danson) and Eleanor (Kristen Bell) are continuing to welcome the four new humans to The Good Place. They know that these four individuals are there to antagonize them. However, they have to work through it to save the human race.

How will Tahani (Jameela Jamil) deal with her gossip columnist arch-nemesis? Jason wants to be with Janet (Manny Jacinto) but she told him no because the experiment is too important. Meanwhile, Janet is busy dealing with all the new people’s request. Especially, the new guy who is there to torture Eleanor. She has enough problems now that Chidi’s (William Jackson Harper) memory has been erased and he does not remember her.

While things are not going smoothly for them, things are going better off down in the Bad Place. Or are they?

You don’t want to miss as our Fab Four tries to acclimate the new kids into their world with a big old party.

A sad party is happening over here because I don’t want this show to end.


Finally at 9:30p, Kal Penn is an elected official in Sunnyside. Scratch that, he is an impeached city councilman for Sunnyside in Queens, NY.

When Garrett Modi (Penn) first ran for office, he had dreams of helping the community. Fifteen years later, he is living in his office because his girlfriend kicked him out, he has no money and he has just been fired from his job. He moves in with his sister, Mallory (Kiran Deol) and she tells him to get a job.

He gets a call to meet some people at a bar to help them pass their citizenship test so they can become Americans. When all of his contacts fails, he decides to help them himself. Luckily, two of his students are really rich, so they throw money his way.

Those two students are siblings, Jim Hoa (Joel Kim Booster) and Mel Lin (Poppy Liu). We do not know where they are from because they won’t say. While they have lots of money, Griselda (Diana-Maria Riva) does not. The Dominican has so many jobs, no one can possibly count them all. Hakim (Samba Schutte) is a taxi driver from Ethiopia. Finally, there is Brady (Moses Storm), he just found out he is from Moldovia and that he was not born in America. His mother brought him here when he was two and she never told him. After he gets caught, the government told him to become a citizen or go back. Since he does not know where Moldavia is, he opts to become an American. Which is why he needs Garrett’s help.

Each week, Garrett will work with them to make sure they get to live the America Dream. Granted the brother and sister are already living all of their dreams and most other people’s. Can Garrett teach them all about the good ole USA?

You are going to want to watch the show that reminds us that we are all immigrants in America. You don’t have to be born here to love America. You just have to live hear to learn you love it! Like we will love this show.

Oh fork, this is major bullshirt, The Good Place is ending this season
June 8th, 2019 under Kristen Bell, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


There are hundreds of television shows being produced these days and The Good Place is one of the best of the bunch. However, as they say, “All good things must come to an end.” Sadly, that is the case for this comedy.

Michael Shur, who created this show, explained his decision to say goodbye the good and bad place.

After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show. Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons—just over 50 episodes—was the right lifespan. At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.

I will be forever grateful to NBC and Universal TV for letting us make The Good Place, and for letting us end it on our own schedule. I will also be forever grateful to the creative team, both on-screen and off, for the work and decimation to a very weird idea. We ask the question very frequently, on this show, what do we owe to each other? The answer, for me, is: I owe all of you a whole lot.

We look forward to a great final season airing this fall.

I thought that watching Ted Danson flossing would bring a smile to my face after this news, but it did not work. I don’t want this show to end. Can’t they take something else like Grey’s Anatomy or NCIS?
