They never got around to addressing that question raised by the show of 'what is the point of Earth, really'.

Without Earth the good place would have no meaning. It is living that defines death. This is like a central idea of the show.

Reproduction I guess? They never address if new humans could be made in the afterlife and the Janet re-productions when she needed to do it were never quite right.

They never answered the biggest question:

what happens to people in the afterlife named "Janet?"

The same Autotranslate that let Chidi speak French changes all mentions of Janet to Susan for Janets.

I was not aware that Short Form Series category existed. It's specific enough that I can't imagine its super competitive, and the Selection was just okay. Better Call Saul's probably taking that one.

Imagine if QuiBi can't even win at the category they based their business model on.

Producers get statues when a series wins. The Emmy website doesn’t have the breakdown of exactly who that is for 2020 but she’s listed as a Co-Executive Producer for the 2019 awards.

Seems like she has disappeared from social media after the criticism over her earlier edgelord tweets came up. Too bad, her tweets and instagram posts were some of the only good internet content.

She made some extremely racist tweets back in 2011-2012, e.g. "It's not politically correct to say "retarded" anymore, you have to call them "Asian-Americans"."

Yeah she apparently started out thinking that racism for edginess sake was funny, I have no idea why she didn’t go back and delete that poo poo once she knew better (I am assuming she learned better because of the large amount of donations she later made to anti-racism organizations later, but who knows for sure).

The whole thing was disappointing.

Yeah, it was kind of like the James Gunn thing all over again. Old stuff that had already been referenced, addressed, and properly apologized for was left up and then when she was tweeting about BLM, a bunch of (probably right wingers) called her out on it. Loads of POC came to her defense though saying exactly this, and that she has given women of color work opportunities which is more important than deleting lovely tweets.

If everyone on Twitter is going to use everything you have ever tweeted ever as representing your current thoughts and opinions on every topic, I don't understand why everyone doesn't just auto-delete everything older than a few months old. Hell, Twitter should do it, nothing good ever comes out of looking for years-old tweets.

I feel like I can see a glimmer of what the joke in that tweet was supposed to be in a pre-Post-Irony world, at least. Probably a good choice by Megan not to go back and try to explain each joke away, though.

Edit: The middle one in this image holds up, I think:
