I believe there’s an ad for Jean Ralphio’s cologne on the back on a magazine Eleanor was reading at one point too.

I vaguely recall seeing something about that after the second season finale. 

Though I doubt they'd ever actually bring P&R characters into this. To start with, Kristen Bell would be far too recognizable to most Pawnee residents as Eagleton's Ingrid de Forest. 

Fun Easter eggs regardless. 

Edit: In looking up the name of Kristen Bell's P&R character, I came across this image. Enjoy.

.... "Why Stone Cold Steve Austin fans hate The Rock fans." In the middle of a speech again breaking down concepts of societal morality.

 

This is the best show ever.

That was the best episode yet, in my opinion. 

Maya Rudolph deserves every dopey award they give out between this and Big Mouth.

God this show is so fucking perfect.

This one reminded me so much of Angel. "If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do"

So what would happen if the entire world became aware of the point system?

You’d expect it would collapse.

Though I’m curious if the Soul Squad continues to accumulate points based on their actions now having no corrupt motivation because of their assumption that the Good Place is closed to them. Moral dessert is off the menu. I wouldn’t be shocked if that’s taken into account.

After a slow start this season sure has been picking up steam. The highlight was obviously Chidi's drunk lecture. Though you could have summed it up in a couple of words:

I've never been less able to predict where a show is going. I mean, seriously, I have no idea.

Neither do I. I watched this yesterday and the way Michael Schur has given this much mileage to a concept that might only be good for one season is amazing.

One thing Schur (I think it was him) said on the Armchair Expert podcast is that they try to write every episode as if it's a season finale cliffhanger. I don't know how the writers keep up with that pace, but it's amazing to watch them dig themselves in to a hole and get themselves out of it in so many creative ways every season.

How many wrestling references have we had so far in this show? Off the top of my head:

  • Eleanor's frequently referenced fandom/attraction to Steve Austin
  • Hogan's face on Mount Rushmore back in the Brainy Bunch episode
  • Randy "Macho Man" Savage Non-International Airport

Anything I'm missing?

Oh my fuck that twist.

I mean, I know, that line can apply to basically every episode but oh my fuck that twist.

Also, screw a t-shirt, someone build that airport.

MGM Grand Elementary School~

Interesting episode, never thought Tahani would get any kind of redemption with her family.
