As of this week, the first two seasons of The Good Place are streaming on Netflix. This is one show that must be seen from the start. You have time. The third series premiere is on Thursday, 27 September, so you can easily binge the backlog by then.
The Good Place, the funniest, smartest, most original American sitcom since the first three seasons of Arrested Development, will be back with new episodes later this month. Kristen Bell plays Eleanor Shellstrop, who discovers, post mortem, that she’s wound up in The Good Place, even though she clearly doesn’t belong there. Ted Danson gives what might be the best performance of his v long career as Michael, the architect of The Good Place.

The supporting cast—D’Arcy Carden, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and William Jackson Harper—are all just about perfect.
I mean, what the fork are you waiting for?
