The Good Place S1E5 Review

The Good Place has been very serialized for a sitcom, which made me very excited to watch another episode this week!

S1E5 "Category 55 Emergency Doomsday Crisis"

Eleanor is becoming a better person, but annoying Chidi. I don't really believe that Chidi would get tired of teaching Eleanor about ethics, because he loves ethics. Tahani discovers that she is ranked second to last in the neighborhood, and we get Tahani flashbacks this week, which have a lot of potential to bring more depth to her character.

Tahani tries to move up in the rankings, which could possibly be more interesting if more time was devoted to it. Eleanor and Chidi get funnier, mostly when they have an argument, but things go wrong when the couple staying with them sees their argument.

The final scene with Tahani is very enjoyable, as she hopes it was her who fixed the sinkhole. The conclusion to Eleanor and Chidi's storyline is sweet, building even more on Eleanor's growth.

This episode was weaker than past episodes of The Good Place, but it was still very enjoyable. The biggest issues were my disbelief in Chidi tiring of teaching, and the lack of amount of time Tahani's story was given.

Score: 7.5/10
