D'Arcy Carden, who played Janet
D'Arcy Carden, who played Janet

"Janet(s)" is the tenth episode of the third season of The Good Place. Written by Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan and directed by Morgan Sackett, it originally aired on NBC on December 6, 2018. The episode sees Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason accidentally transformed into versions of Janet, all played by D'Arcy Carden (pictured). Meanwhile, Michael (Ted Danson) and the real Janet (Carden) investigate if the afterlife system that sorts good and bad acts has been manipulated. Rehearsals for the episode began earlier than usual so Carden could learn to play the other characters. The episode required more visual effects than previous episodes. "Janet(s)" was watched by 2.58 million Americans in its original broadcast and was well received by critics; Carden's performance was widely praised. Themes covered include the meaning of the self, which the writers had studied in preparation. It was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for writing and won a Hugo Award. (Full article...)
