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 new Thursday-night comedy SUNNYSIDE takes its title from the New York neighborhood where it is set (although the series is shot in Los Angeles).

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 »

POP SHOW PODCAST – Episode 31: New Fall Shows + Fast Food Reviews

POP SHOW PODCAST | © 2016 AssignmentX

Hi again, the POP SHOW PODCAST starring Anthony C. Ferrante is back after a bit of a hiatus which Anthony talks about in the podcast. As usual, Anthony has a bit of trouble staying on topic and we end up delving deep into the realm of fast food joints and the latest incarnations they are doing to attract customers. Ryan Mitchelle also has been off for an extended hiatus and his opening to the podcast shows a bit of rust as he mistakenly refers to Sonia Mansfield as “Sarah” something we won’t let him forget the entire podcast (maybe ever?). […]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 »
