Last Thursday while we were all preparing to witness the unpalatable, NBC’s The Good Place, perhaps the best new network sitcom of the year, aired an utterly perfect season finale. Spoilers, obviously, to follow.
The Good Place has been an unexpectedly delightful ride, finding a way to introduce twists and turns without being prosaic or completely absurd. The series introduces us to Eleanor Shellstrop in the immediate aftermath of her very embarrassing death. She finds herself in the so-called Good Place, a Heaven-like afterlife with every flavor of frozen yogurt imaginable and her very own soulmate.
