[The Good Place] S01E03: Tahani Al-Jamil

Watch Date: 9 May 2020

Watched on: Netflix

IMDb link.

Netflix Summary:

Eleanor thinks Tahani knows her secret. Michael tries to get Chidi interested in a new hobby. Janet goes through some interesting personality changes.

Notes:

  • No new philosophers. Oh well.
  • After it very successfully built up the idea that the threatening note was a manifestation of Eleanor’s subconscious, that last minute twist hit much harder than the previous episode’s cliffhanger.
  • I do think the question of why we resent people like Tahani who are so wonderful is one worth exploring; and I hope the season pays attention to it.
  • That was very rapid conscience development for Eleanor.
  • The Janet subplot was kind of annoying – but does demonstrate that the actress could pull of impressive range.
  • After this episode, I’m going to binge watch up to three episodes at a time, before I do annotations. 22 minutes is kind of a waste of effort for an individual annotation.
