Storyline

The Good Place is a town where those who have been good throughout their lives go once they have passed away. Michael (Danson) is the architect who oversees the town--and this is the first one he has been in charge of creating. Eleanor (Bell) arrives at the Good Place and realizes they have her name right, but everything else is wrong. She isn't meant to be there at all. With the help of Chidi, her soul mate (Harper), Eleanor tries to right her wrongs, seeking to finally earn her spot in the Good Place. Written by carly lawless

Trivia

The Medium Place has only been in existence since the 1980s, when Mindy St. Claire (Maribeth Monroe) died, and both The Good Place and The Bad Place argued for an unknown period of time over who should get her. Eventually they came to a compromise, and created a new realm of mediocre existence for Mindy to live in by herself for the rest of eternity. Since it has only one resident, there isn't even a neighbourhood as such, just one house and a railway station, the name board of which reads "Neighbourhood: [N/A]". See more »

Quotes

Super Addicting
25 September 2016 | by mickdansforthSee all my reviews

When I saw Drew Goddard's name on this, I knew this show would be good.

It feels very much like a Bryan Fuller show. A mix of Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies, maybe with a sprinkle of Wonderfalls hero angst.

CSI and the abysmal CSI Cyber proved I will watch Ted Dansen in anything, and Cyber was a whole new show with him on it. The irritating characters lost their irritating edge. House of Lies proved I can't watch Kristen Bell in anything. But both are great in this.

And the rest of the cast is interesting and exciting.

The show allows its creators to get creative and unleash their imaginations. And that is a good portion of the fun.

Can't wait for episode 4... and 5 and 6 and and and...
