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

In the episode 1.5, The Good Place: Category 55 Emergency Doomsday Crisis (2016), Michael (Ted Danson) scolds Tahani (Jameela Jamil) that the manual for the neighbourhood is only to be viewed by Architects and Janets (D'Arcy Carden). This implies there are multiples of Janet at any given time, potentially one per neighbourhood. Other facts about Janet also seem to imply this (e.g. that she loses most of her abilities when outside of her assigned neighbourhood) and it is finally confirmed in episode 2.6, The Good Place: Janet and Michael (2017).

"Picture a wave. In the ocean. You can see it, measure it, its height, the way the sunlight refracts when it passes through. And it's there. And you can see it, you know what it is. It's a wave. And then it crashes in the shore and it's gone. But the water is still there. The wave was just a different way for the water to be, for a little while. You know it's one conception of death for Buddhists: the wave returns to the ocean, where it came from and where it's supposed to be." -Chidi
