Jason Mendoza is such an awesome character. Inasmuch as it sucks to have a Filipino-American become this idiot character, at least Manny Jacinto did this well. I mean the dude pulls in crazy criminal acts and yet for some reason, we think of it as... cute.
It’s like whenever Butters does anything evil in South Park... or New Girl’s Winston whenever he does his crazy pranks.
The Season 1 Episode 13 reveal is by far my favorite moment but two of my favorite The Good Place moments had Jason blurting out that they are in...
... The Bad Place.
It's the Season 1 Episode 4 moment where Jason speaks out on how heaven is "racist" because they pegged him as Jianyu the Taiwanese monk instead of a Floridian with Filipino roots.
Also, it would have sucked if they treated Jason as a math geek. I am done with people thinking that Asians are math geeks. Sure, I love stats and I can multiply things inside my head to an extent, but I can’t really say that I am a human counting machine.
Anyway, here are a couple of reasons why Jason is one of my favorite characters.
