So the show is now going to be Michael hiding this fuckup from his bosses, right?

I'm a little sad they blew up the status quo so quickly (because I like when the four humans are bouncing off each other), but that was a forking amazing premier

They really knocked the season premier out of the park. I think my favorite thing is that we spent so long getting to know the characters in season 1 that, even with completely remixed (after)lives, the way they behave was completely obvious to the audience, while completely opaque to Michael. And even without the note, his crew is so self-sabotaging that this is obviously doomed to fail.

I do have one question: Why was he tape-recording his conversation with his boss at the end? Is he going to, like, make fake messages to his staff from his boss to keep them going?

It looked to me as if he were about to start recording something when the call from Shawn interrupted him, not that he was deliberately trying to record Shawn.

Also, Butthole Spiders really needs to be a fantasy football team name.

Yeah, I read that as Michael was fiddling with the tape recorder, then was startled by Shaun's call.

Also, it's pretty impressive that the show pretty much burned through an entire season two in ~40 minutes.

This show is on fire. It sold me on episode 1 and hasn't let up yet.

I can see this season turning into Michael using the humans/working with them as a way to prevent his own eternal torture, now that he's lied to Shawn and will have to continue to do so.

But given how this show flips its tables so easily, who knows?

That was a fantastic season premiere. Season 1 showed us those characters so well that they didn't need to do long detailed explanations about why all the situations were torture for the humans, but could just show them and we'd get it.

I really loved Michael's insidious little line to Tahani that "No one else has any complaints..." which of course makes her doubt herself.

We're headed towards Michael having his memory erased and being thrown in with the rest of the gang while someone else takes over management of the neighborhood.

I approve of this.

It would be amazing if there was a reboot every single episode but I don't think that's where they're going.

Yeah, but what if Michael's plotting winds up redeeming the four, so his torture is that he's a demon who inadvertently saves people?

I joke guessed that the Good Place was Michael's personal Bad Place after like the first or second episode of season 1, is that a real theory now? Did I meme?

Michael isn't in the bad place, nor the 4 humans anymore. This season is torturing real Eleanor, the bitey guy, and BombaJon. Michael is really on a job interview to be the person who tortures demons.

I missed this show so bad. Flawless return.

Edit: Except for Rachel/Real Eleanor, no part of her return was really good.

Yeah I think they made the bad place even better (worse?) This time around. Tahani was broken by the first night.

This show is so incredibly well done. And I want my own Janet.

Has this been the case the entire time, or just since the end of last year as a consequence of his failure? The latter would explain why all of his minions are so incompetent this year compared to last.
