Michael having convinced the Judge to do so, Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason are all back on Earth having been given a second chance to prove that they are good people, they placed in exactly the moment before their accidental deaths. Michael's first task is to make sure they don't befall the same death they did the first time. Michael doesn't tell the Judge what's going on as he and Janet monitor the four humans' individual progress as the four have each fallen into somewhat the same routine that got them into the Bad Place the first time around despite they making initial changes in their behaviors and attitudes immediately after their respective near death experience. As such, Michael believes he has to bend the Judge's rules on the matter to help the process of what made the four change when they were together in the neighborhood, he seeing the key being Eleanor and Chidi.

[first lines]
Michael: Hi, I'm Michael. You must be The Doorman.
The Doorman: [points at his DOORMAN sign]
Michael: Ah. This is wild. I had no idea this was even here. So I have this ruling from The Judge. Heading on down to Earth to reverse the deaths of these four people. It's kind of tricky, you know? It starts up a new timeline, so there might be some ripple effects. But it's necessary for the experiment that we're doing there. So, how long's this trip take? Hope I don't get a middle seat.

YupYupYupYupYup! Worth it!
1 October 2018 | by jakebirkelSee all my reviews

I have a resolution to rate every episode of season 3, so hopefully it pans out well. This first episode? I loved it.

I honestly didn't know where they would go after season 2's finale, but that's the beauty of The Good Place. We are constantly subverted and toyed with, given a cliffhanger every five minutes; and we love every second of it. The way they are taking this season is, once again, unique and filled with a plethora of opportunities.

The cast still shines, exploring their characters before death and how morals play into their actions. The new additions aren't bad, I'm intrigued. The familiar faces are a sight for sore eyes (Watch till the end for a special treat for season 1 fans!).

I didn't think I'd survive the wait to season 3. I'm forking glad I did, because it was worth every second! (9/10)
