Arrow And Good Place Series Finales

Post by sfpcc » Wed Jan 29, 2020 6:30 pm

Among the many shows ending in 2020 are Arrow and The Good Place. Arrow ended last night and The Good Place will end tomorrow evening.
Did anyone out there watch or plan to watch these finales? I thought Arrow was really good, very emotional and elegiac. I missed Felicity and it was good to see her back.

I watched the first season of The Good Place, thought it was pretty stupid. Now it seems like every critic and everyone on social media loves the show. Not sure if it got better, or maybe it was just never my cup of tea.

My personal fave a few months back was "AP Bio" as the writer most definitely lived in Toledo, and the Toledo references were enough to keep me watching all 13 episodes. It was a Lorne Michaels/Seth Myers production, good cast, just needed more laughs per minute. Kudos to the AP BIO writer for keeping our hometime and hockeyteam in the limelight, likewise there was an episode of the time travel show "Timeless" that landed in 1983 Toledo Express Airport, complete with accurate weather map showing a tornado warning for Fulton/Lucas/Wood Counties in Ohio- obviously a Toledo writer there.
Anyhow, they did a very nice ending for "Timeless" a whole year back, so it's great when they know they are cancelled (likewise a must-see Person of Interest) and can have a decent send-off, unlike all the 60's and 70's shows that never tied up loose ends (think, liberating Hogan's Heroes, WKRP in Cincinnati breaks up, etc....)
It wasn't until "M*A*S*H" and "Newhart" that TV writers came-up with a spectacular send-offs (or a horrible send-offs: ie: Seinfeld).

This post might have some spoilers.

The Good Place had an Amazing ending. In a way we find out what comes after The Good Place. Nothing felt forced or rushed.

By your posts I know you are a fan of Person Of Interest. Have you been watching Evil which features Michael Emerson from that show? I think it's the best X Files type show well since the X Files.

AP Bio is being brought back on NBC's Peacock Streaming Service. Creator Mike O'Brien mentioned it of Seth Meyers a couple of nights ago

The final season of Arrow contained a backdoor pilot featuring The Canaries (Laurel, Dinah and Mia) as a crime-fighting team in a future timeline. The pilot hatched plots that would constitute a spin-off series. Last I heard, the possible spin-off was still in consideration by CW, although due to COVID production delays, the network season launch has been delayed until January 2021. It would be interesting to see if this series makes the cut.
