THE GOOD PLACE REVIEWED

“The Good Place” returns for a second season. Michael’s plan has gone sideways, now Eleanor and the others are getting their chance at a better eternity. I don’t know what it is about the show, but I don’t love it. Everyone loves this show, but there are so many things that kill that last leg of enjoyment for me. If Adam Scott’s character was the show focus, I’d be all about the series. Somehow, I’m required to care about the Danson/Bell dynamic?

Also, what is it with the Jacksonville Jaguars fan? Somehow, he annoys me more than the one bemoaning QT’s casting choices for “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”. Can I somehow get a third group enraged? The show got 2 Emmy nominations too many.

That being said, this feels like another NBC series where it’s building up for an amazing third season. It’s not there yet, so I’m waiting patiently for something to come off the micro world building at play here. Help me out, NBC.

The Plot Thus Far

Everything Is Still Fine.

Just Fine.

From the outrageous mind of Michael Schur, executive producer of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks And Recreation, comes the side-splitting second season of the award-winning comedy starring Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) and Ted Danson (Cheers).

After Michael’s disastrous attempt to torture Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason for eternity goes belly-up, Eleanor and the gang are rebooted and Michael has revised his plan to keep his torture subjects separate. Only now, Michael’s soul is on the line, as his boss, Shawn, won’t allow another attempt!
