Let me begin by saying that the trailers for this show were so funny that I just had to watch it and now that I have seen “The Good Place” I have to say, holy sheet, I forking love it!! As it turns out, The Good Place has a serious problem. Not everyone who has arrived in this heavenly place belongs there.
Ted Danson stars as Michael, the architect of The Good Place. Kristen Bell’s character Eleanor Shellstrop has died and arrived in Tthe Good Place. Unfortunately, or fortunately for her, she has mistakenly been sent to The Good Place instead of the Bad Place. It is this mistake that leads to the hilarity that ensues. I don’t want to spill the beans, this is a show that you need to watch for yourself, but all Hell so to speak breaks lose as Eleanor tries to figure out how she can stay in The Good Place.
Additional cast members include William Jackson Harper as Chidi, Eleanor’s nerdy soulmate, Jameela Jamil as Tahani, the perfectly annoying neighbor, Manny Jacinto as Jianyu the silent Buddhist monk and soulmate of Tahani and D’Arcy Carden as Janet, the go to source for all things “Good Place”.
Chaos is what is happening in The Good Place as we begin to see the cracks in the perfect facade. I am curious about where this show is going and in the meantime, it is great entertainment.
