Why bother making it obvious that Eleanor doesn't belong there? It leads to a constant tension that eventually reveals where they are. Of course if Eleanor knows she risks being found out from day one it's going to come out, Jason cannot stay silent forever. Pair Chidi up with Eleanor an amoral person who doesn't want Chidis help and pair Tahani up with Jason who she will always try to change, and let the torture begin!

The man has spoken. Hot dogs are sandwiches.
Why the life preserver??
From the article:
""It all began when Rae Sanni, the newest writer to join the staff, became impatient with showrunner Mike Schur’s musings about philosophy. “The ‘Jeremy Bearimy’ happened, in part, because I’m a lot less smart than these people,” Sanni said with a laugh. “Mike was trying to explain the concept of time, and I couldn’t get it for a full afternoon. I’m new on the staff, I’m the least experienced, and I’m boldly interrupting their conversations because I just wasn’t following. I don’t know how time works! Help me! So Josh [Siegal, co-executive producer] was literally just like, What about Jeremy Bearimy?”
“She’s being modest,” Schur interjected. “She was like, How can can time events be happening in the Good Place if they’re not happening on Earth? We were like, Well, we’re trying to say it like this, and she was like, This doesn’t make any sense, and she was totally right.” Schur and the writers soon realized they were searching for answers that were too long-winded and convoluted, when all they really needed was lean into the silliness of it all. ""
Lil' Sebastian, is that you??
I am definitely dressing up as Good Janet pretending to be Bad Janet...
I'd been hearing about this, IT'S TRUE!!! And you have to read the menu!
SPOILER WARNING FOR SEASON 3!!!!!!!!!
Now, the ending of the first episode for Season 3 doesn't make sense: How did Trevor make it to Earth without Shawn cocooning him?

There are so many things to love about the Good Place, and this article captures many of those things. I love how this show sort of works backwards. Usually, the cliffhanger is, will this person die, but we KNOW they're dead, so where do we go from there? Can't wait for Season 3 and where The Good Place takes us <3
In season 2, Michael states that the neighborhood has been through 802 reboots (the longest lasting 11 months), but I don't believe we're ever told how long they spent there in total before being sent back to Earth.
In Micheal's flashback, he writes on the paper that it is a "Bold New Plan" implying that it had never been thought of before.
In addition, the existence of Mindy St. Claire can be explained away if you assume that she was one of the architects acting like a human, like the people in the good place other than the main four characters, which she very well could be.
Anyway, that's just my hypothesis and I haven't watched past the season 1 finale yet because that's all that's on Netflix
How does Janet know about Eleanor's "real" bad life? Should she only provide information about her "good" life? Confused.
I vaguely remember Vicky mentioning the size of the neighborhood in the episode 'Leap to Faith', when she tells Shawn that the humans could still be hiding in the neighborhood. Can someone please tell me what exactly she said?
I'm considering putting in a request to adopt this wiki, so I'm posting this here, in accordance with the guidelines, for anyone to object. This place could use an admin and I'm a nice guy... I mean, there's no way I'd get into the Good Place, but I get along with people pretty well, so why not?
Would anyone object to renaming this episode to "Chapter 1: Everything is Fine"? That seems to be the title that NBC, Hulu and Netflix UK all use and is frankly a better title than "Pilot". I think "Pilot" is just a description (and strictly speaking, not even an accurate one).
