Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil.
The show follows Eleanor Shellstrop, an ordinary woman who enters the afterlife and, thanks to some kind of error, is sent to the Good Place instead ofthe Bad Place, which is definitely where she belongs. While hiding in plain sight from Michael, the wise architect of the Good Place who doesn't know he's made a mistake, she's determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome, or at least the pretty good, person within.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Exceptional Sarcastic Comedy submitted by Meginator on July 1, 2018, 10:06pm This show is absolutely hilarious, layering absurdist and ironic humor over a premise with endless potential (what happens when a bad person gets sent to Heaven by mistake?), all while convincingly building a core group of quirky, endearing characters whose development is central to the show. The jokes are funny, sure, but there’s real heart and humanity underneath the veneer of cynicism. Each episode moves the story forward in unexpected ways, culminating in a season-ending paradigm shift that makes so much sense you can’t even be mad about it. This is an exceptional comedy series that only improves on multiple viewings; I can’t get enough of it.

Delightful Comedy submitted by Maria Maguire on July 20, 2018, 5:22pm The humor in this show is great, and very good-natured. It's purely fun comedy that leaves me feeling refreshed. The characters are all uniquely lovable. I find myself rooting for all the characters and loved seeing them better each other. And just as you start to think you have the feel of the show figured out, the end of the season throws in a great twist.

Holy forking shirtballs submitted by Aimless on July 24, 2019, 4:35pm This show is delightful. I watched it with my Elementary school age children. Although it is hilarious, it also A serious TV show about ethics

Smart submitted by gracekil on August 2, 2019, 3:52pm Surprisingly smart, funny, and entertaining show. Ethics and being a good person is not as straight-forward as you might think.

The best comedy currently airing submitted by redwood on August 4, 2019, 7:39pm How is a show about heaven and hell and philosophy this funny? What a stellar cast, and plot twists that actually feel like twists.

One of the best modern tv shows submitted by dntanzer on August 21, 2019, 9:50pm The good place is a weird but very funny show. I recommend it to everyone I know who's looking for new TV shows.
