NBC’s wonderful philosophical comedy/fantasy THE GOOD PLACE is drawing to its series finale after four seasons. Created by Michael Schur, THE GOOD PLACE deals with a reformed demon (Ted Danson), an almost all-knowing AI named Janet (D’Arcy Carden) and four humans who are now trying to save humanity from either obliteration or eternal damnation. (Originally, they were all in the Bad Place, which was pretending to be the Good Place. Watch from the start and it will all make sense.) The show is incredibly smart, astonishingly hilarious, and often surprisingly moving. The hour-long-plus finale airs Thursday, January 28; before that, […]Read On »

THE GOOD PLACE, the NBC comedy now in its fourth and final season on Thursday nights, may be the most arced half-hour on network television. Created by Michael Schur, THE GOOD PLACE started as what seemed to be a story about one woman, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), thinking she’d mistakenly been sent to the Good Place (i.e., Heaven) after death. Spoiler alert: it turned out that Eleanor was in an experiment of the Bad Place, run by the demon Michael (Ted Danson). Over three seasons, Michael, Eleanor and Eleanor’s three fellow experimentees – philosophy professor Chidi Anagonye (William Jackson Harper), […]Read On »

NBC’s Thursday-night comedy ABBY’S stars Natalie Morales as a military veteran who opens her own bar. But not just any bar – Abby’s is a proudly unlicensed establishment that’s under a canopy in the backyard of Abby’s rental home. It’s a big hit with the neighbors. New landlord Bill (Nelson Franklin) at first freaks out when he sees Abby’s, but Abby and her customers soon bring him around. Created by Josh Malmuth, ABBY’S has the distinction of being one of the very few television comedies ever shot for a live audience outdoors, rather than on a soundstage.  Michael Schur is […]Read On »
