The Good Place starts with Eleanor opening her eyes, while seated on a sofa, in what looks like a waiting room, and smiles after seeing a poster that announces –
Everything is fine.
Michael invites Eleanor into his office, let’s her know she’s in The Good Place; and the rest is a hundred thousands of Bearimys, shirtload of forks, bullshirts and ashholes.
The series mainly runs through the lives of the 4 human protagonists – Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason, as they try to live in the Good, Bad and Medium Places. Michael is a non-human architect, and Janet is an infinite being who helps him.
This series aired it’s fourth and final season in January 2020, but the season was recently added to Netflix.
It’s one of those good shows that you shouldn’t miss, if you like light comedy and an amazing cast. All the characters evolved in one way or another (except for Jason maybe🤣) and in the most wholesome way.
What are these Good, Bad and Medium Places you may ask. Well, they draw parallels to our Heaven, Hell and somewhere in the middle.
I am cutting down a star for the occasional slow-burn, but I can easily say that – This has got to be the only series finale that I was satisfied with; I was neither left wanting more nor did I have a bazillion questions!
Great start, AND a purely satisfying conclusion! ❤
