About The Good Place
Your media’s mind-numbing predictability is about to get a jolt of motherforking fun.
After all, most shows deliver dully on their promises. “America’s Got Talent” gives you talent. “This is Us” is all about them. The news gives you a stomach ulcer. But in NBC’s “The Good Place,” you truly have no idea where that show is going to go.
Sure, the premise was solid enough back in the first season. Kristen Bell, aka Veronica Mars, aka Anna from “Frozen,” is Eleanor Shellstrop, a woman who has recently died. She’s woken up to find herself in the company of Ted Danson, who tells her she is in the afterlife – specifically, in “The Good Place.”
Straight out of the gate, Bell’s Shellstrop is far more sarcastic than you might expect in a citizen of Heaven (or a Disney princess). Her snarky vitriol finds full expression when she encounters her neighbors, including the vapid, British Tahani, the silent Buddhist monk Jason, and the anxious Ethics professor Chidi. She can’t curse, however – hence she must sprinkle her speech with replacements “fork,” “shirt,” and “bench.”
Hilarity ensues, of course, but you’d be remiss if you thought of “The Good Place” as merely a comedy. It was created by Michael Schur, the same guy who gave us all hope for humanity by co-creating “Parks and Recreation.” In both shows, there’s a wry acceptance of life’s grim realities – and a beating heart that gets you through them. “The Good Place” is also delightfully geeky, sneakily packing what amounts to a Philosophy lesson into every episode.
If all that doesn’t grab you, you could also say that’s effortlessly diverse and point to its joke density (including the jokes you have to pause the play to see and appreciate.) You could note that it has giant flying shrimp, which it does, and that should be reason enough to check it out.
Why you should watch it, however, is that it offers a level of surprise you don’t often find these days. In the echo chambers of our social media as well as in the algorithms used to suggest our shows, we so often find just what we are looking for. Here is an opportunity to see what you didn’t expect – so before you get hit with spoilers, make sure you treat yo self (in the words of Parks & Rec) by binging the first two seasons. Thankfully, you do not need to have cable to do so.
