Starring:
Kristen Bell || William Jackson Harper || Jameela Jamil || D'Arcy Carden || Manny Jacinto || Ted Danson

This is my most recent obsession, I found it so funny and it's so easy to watch, it's sort of like Grace and Frankie in those aspects. Kristen Bell is also amazing of course. Anyway here's a small synopsis of the show:

The Good Place is a town where those who have been good throughout their lives go once they have passed away. The series focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), a recently deceased young woman who arrives in the Good Place. However, she quickly realises that she was sent there by mistake. With the help of Chidi (Harper), Eleanor tries to hide her morally imperfect past and right her wrongs, seeking to finally earn her spot in the Good Place.

What they do not mention in this description is the funniest character - Janet - who is a 'robot' and provides answers to all and every question anyone in the town has. Her deadpan humour always gets me it's brilliant.

The show has also received pretty good ratings:
IMDb | 7.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes | 90%


Overall, this is a really lighthearted comedy and there's only 1 season so far (12 episodes). The only downfall is that it's not on netflix BUT, do not fear, I have provided a link to a half decent website here if anyone wants somewhere to watch it, which I highly suggest you do smile.gif

really?! i forking love her.

watched ep 1 of s2 tonight.. wasn't that thrilled with it tbh. felt like it was a bit of a waste of 45 mins.
no progression + while the concept was cute to begin with, i can't see where it's going to go.. it's been pretty predictable so far.

though, i will say.. it did have the best surprise twist in a season finale that i've seen in a long time.

Well I meant more that she is meant to be a bad person and doesn't fit in the "good place" laugh.gif

if you followed the storyline (i.e. Sean telling there will be no third time, meaning there's no time for another re-do) i doubt they will do that again

I watched the entire first season in a day heading to and from London on Monday. I absolutely loved this. I thought it was well done and entertaining

I've made my way through season 1 over the past few days and everything about it is AMAZING (well, maybe not Jason/Janet, I wasn't feeling that so much). Proper laugh out loud funny and I love the concept.

I think Janet is the best character really but I love how big a role Jameela has and she has not disappointed heart.gif May crush a little on Jianyu too. Can't wait to dive into season 2 and hope it doesn't begin to feel too stale

I was sold from the first episode though and think each episode delivers more of the same so if anyone isn't feeling it after a couple of episodes, I'm not sure further episodes will change things unsure.gif

See I am a couple of episodes into season 2 and I am a bit bored of it still, although I did reallt enjoy the lead up to the finale and the twist was really well done, I didn't see it coming ohmy.gif Its one of those shows where I can only watch a couple of episodes at a time, then I leave for ages then go back to. Janet is also my fave, Jianyu is adorable too so I didn't mind that pairing laugh.gif Tahani has grown on me a lot but Chidi and Eleanor still annoy me so much :')
