THE GOOD PLACE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON REVIEWED
“The Good Place” feels like the honest successor to Parks and Recreation. While Kristen Bell is no Leslie Knope, she plays the lead as an evil distant cousin. She wants to be good, but she also realizes that goodness is intangible. In that sense, it plays like a spiritual comedic take on The Prisoner. Ted Danson exists as the bullied lead, who uses his abilities to keep resetting the world that Bell is coming to understand.
Other figures emerge, but the purpose is to keep resetting the prison of The Good Place. This might sound like spoilers. That’s because they are. While I had the series spoiled for me after only seeing the pilot last year, I can say that nothing was lost on me. It’s great material and only has the potential to explode with future seasons.
