The Good Place
Kristen Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto, Ted Danson, Tiya Sircar, Adam Scott
When rogue shopping carts strike and kill Eleanor Shellstrop, she is surprised to find herself in the “good” area of the afterlife. She quickly realizes she has been mistaken for someone else when her wise, newfound mentor tells her she earned her place by helping get innocent people off death row. She decides that she wants to shed her old foul-mouthed and hard-dirking ways and find a way to embrace the good person within— at least when she isn’t considering finding a way to return to her mundane existence back on Earth.
After finishing episode one, my first thoughts were this was a stupid show and concept. However, somehow I had a weird urge to continue watching. I am so glad I continued and was not disappointed. Kristen Bell has an amazing ability to turn nonsense into humor and the addition of Ted Danson was amazing.
The show itself centers around Eleanor, a women who just lived a horrible life while on earth. The flashbacks throughout each episode are amazing and really helps sell the difficult that Eleanor has to being a good person. Through each episode of the season Eleanor works to better herself with the help of her not so “Soul Mate” Chidi all the while trying hide the fact that she truely doesn’t belong in the good place.
If you are looking for a fun show that will not make you think to hard than “The Good Place” is for you. Plus the season finale has a twist you won’t see coming. So while many shows are still on Hiatus and you are stuck watching reruns or even worse reality TV, just log on to your Hulu account and begin your binge watching adventure, cause in the end you’ll find yourself in a good place.
