The Good Place is a fantasy-comedy that was first broadcast on NBC in the Fall of 2016. Unlike most TV comedies, it is serialized, with a continuing story that flows from one episode to the next. It is filmed without a laugh track.
The show has six characters. Two of them Janet and Michael (Ted Danson), operate a post-mortem world call the Good Place, and the other four, Eleanora (Kristin Bell), Chidi, Tahani, and Jason, are recently deceased humans who are bewildered to find themselves in the place.
I find this a highly original show. It deals with issues rarely seen in TV comedy: death and the afterlife, guilt and responsibility, but does so in highly amusing ways (One running joke is a spell that overrides swear words with innocuous ones like “fork” and “shirt”, much to the irritation of characters who really feel a need to sound off). It has a unusually diverse cast, three of the six main characters being Filipino, Asian-Indian, and Senegalese. Since Chidi is a former philosophy professor, it also has an intellectual side as he tries to make sense of his new eternal dwelling place. In contrast to the well-behaved “Good Place”, we have frequent farcical flashbacks to the characters’ wild former lives, a la “Lost”.
For viewers looking for something different, I quite recommend this show.
A Good Place for a Good Show
First off, I have loved Kristen Bell’s work ever since the late, lamented Veronica Mars series. Like Buffy, she is the perky blonde who saves the world. And perhaps in this series, she will have to do the same – literally! The whole “look and feel” reminds me very much of Pushing Daisies – the saturated colours, the segues into absurdity, even the life-after-death motifs. And that’s not a bad thing – Daisies was one of my top favourite shows.
Ted Danson gets to put aside some of the gravitas that he had to bring to CSI, and return to his successful comedic abilities a la Cheers.
I’m looking forward to seeing more.
Take it sleazy
I know true perfection doesn’t really exist and that every show has it’s flaws, but with The Good Place I just can’t think of what they would be.
The Good Place is a fantastic show that I will forever remember fondly and to anyone reading this I hope you give the show a chance and watch it through.
Take it sleazy.
