Season 2 started with 800+ reboots in, I think, 22 minutes. They established the premise, got some great jokes out of it, and moved on to the next plot twist. Here, we spent 45 minutes getting the group back together, which we knew had to happen going in.
Elanor's segment was a recap of the Season 2 finale, from Michael's POV. But, all we larned about the afterlife was the doorman likes frogs, and the Bad Place uses CRTs.
Chidi's segment was interesting, but not all that funny.
Tahani's segment was the weakest. Tahani annoying other characters by name dropping every few minutes can be amusing. Tahani name dropping by herself for several minutes is legitimately annoying, The only thing I really liked was Michael's ponytail while saving Tahani.
Jason's segment was pretty great, and I think the only part of this comedy show that actually made me laugh. Plus, Jason taking his role as leader of Dance Dance Resolution seriously was actually reasonable character growth. Tahani chucking it all to become a monk was over the top. Chidi picking a muffin wasn't enough. I guess he also picked a thesis, but did we ever learn what that was?
I'm looking forward to learning about the "ripples" Michael mentioned when talking to the doorman about alternate timelines.
