The Good Reel

Look, I know I beg you guys a lot to watch “The Good Place.” Which you should, you 100 percent absolutely should. And from the beginning. Don’t jump in midway and/or read spoilers because being surprised by this consistently surprising (in a forking great way) show it a major part of its charm. Anyway, I bring this up because here is part of the gag reel from Season 1 that was just released (don’t worry, they aren’t spoilery).

But what they do is reinforce my favorite stealth ship, Eleanor and Tahani. Yes, they’ve more than hinted at Eleanor genuinely being into Tahani. And yes, Tahani actress Jameela Jamil‏ has actively rooted for the ship on multiple occasions on Twitter. All I need to know is whether they have a portmanteau yet. Elhani? Taleanor? Shell-Al? Al-Strop?

“The Good Place” airs at 8:30 p.m. Thursdays, but, again – watch it from the beginning. Have I mentioned it’s on Netflix? Have I mentioned you should watch it?

I will
You were right about 30 Rock, Parks and Rec and that show with Matthew Perry about people in mourning. I forgot the name and its too early in the morning to go googling stuff

I absolutely agree! I binged the very short season 1 on Netflix and am watching season 2 as it airs. So worth it!!
I think Janet might be my fave.

Tahani and Eleanor belong together obviously but my favourite is Janet

Binged it just before Season 2. As usual, Dorothy, you were right. This is the smartest, funniest, smartest, warmest.. did I mention smart? Because it is. It’s like taking a metaphysics in Philosophy. course with Leslie Knope setting the agenda. And Kristen Bell can do no wrong anyway, but seriously, Eleanor is a helluva woman. I think I love her. (she won’t care, but I do).
As always Snarker, you’re my cultural weathervane. Sunny skies this way.
