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 »

THE GOOD PLACE, per NBC’s new Thursday-night comedy – which has a special premiere on Monday, September 19 – is where you go after death if you’ve been a wonderful person. Turns out that, in life, humans are graded by deed, and only the top percentage make it here. How good is the good place? So good that Ted Danson in his most kindly mode plays Michael, the being in charge. Kristen Bell plays Eleanor Shellstrop, who actually wasn’t so good while alive. She’s here through a clerical error, but now desperately trying to be good so no one finds […]Read On »

William Petersen is returning as original lab chief Gil Grissom to work side by side with the man currently in the job, Ted Danson’s D.B.

On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »

Rating: PG Stars: Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, Ted Danson, Amaogak Sweeney, John Pingayak, Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney, Vinessa Shaw, Kathy Baker, Tim Blake Nelson Writers: Jack Amiel & Michael Begler, based on the book FREEING THE WHALES by Thomas Rose Director: Ken Kwapis Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: February 3, 2012 A movie that is pretty much equally friendly to whales, whale hunters, Greenpeace and big oil sounds like a) something that can’t exist and b) would be pretty spineless if it did.
