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 »

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 »
