‘The Good Place’ Series Finale Review: The Time of Our Lives

It strikes me as both incredibly strange and unbelievably fulfilling that I find myself feeling this emotional after having watched The Good Place series finale, titled “Whenever You’re Ready.” Strange because I never really thought we’d get here, never wanted…

‘The Good Place’ 4×12 Review: What is The Good Place?

The Good Place has always been, well, the place for philosophical questions and good fun, at the same time. It’s ultimate episode, titled “Patty,” could not be the exception to the rule. In fact, it had to be, if anything,…

‘The Good Place’ 4×11 Review: “Mondays, Am I Right?”

This week’s episode of The Good Place, titled “Mondays, Am I Right?” feels a bit like all the messages this show has tried to send for four seasons are coming to a head, and it’s both amazing and incredibly sad…

‘The Good Place’ 4×10 Review: A Problem of Justice

Throughout the entirety of The Good Place, but particularly this season, with a new experiment, with the knowledge that the point system doesn’t work, we have been dealing with the same issue: humans evolve, they change, and they get better.…

‘The Good Place’ 4×09 Review: There is No Answer, But

As a mid-season finale, The Good Place‘s “The Answer” does a great job of reminding of us of the journey and setting up the 5 remaining episodes that are to close out this show for good. But, as always, that’s…

‘The Good Place’ 4×07 Review: Let’s Talk About Chidi

The Good Place‘s “Help is Other People” marks the midway point of this, the final season of the show, and there’s a lot we could discuss at this point, from the messaging (which remains on point), to the way these actors…

‘The Good Place’ 4×06 Review: Be Better, A Chip Driver Mystery

The Good Place’s “A Chip Driver Mystery” not only manages to move the plot forward – with John finally in on Jason’s secret, and absolutely everyone, from Simone to Chidi, and even Tahani, ready to call Brent out on his…

‘The Good Place’ 4×04 Review: There’s no I in Team

The Good Place’s “Tinker, Tailor, Demon, Spy” brings back Glenn, because even The Bad Place guys deserve their chance at something resembling redemption, while pitting ¾ of the human side of team cockroach against their favorite demon. And, no, nothing…

‘The Good Place’ 4×03 Review: On The Right Path?

The Good Place’s “Chillaxing” hits us where it hurts the most, by putting the focus once again on the people we already care about, instead of dudebro Brett or the new faces we’re having trouble connecting with. In other words,…

‘The Good Place’ 4×02 Review: Don’t be a Dudebro

The best thing about “A Girl From Arizona Part 2” is that this episode delves into the Eleanor we knew and the Eleanor we have now, while underscoring how much she has grown and why she deserves to be where…

‘The Good Place’ 4×01 Review: Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

It feels hard to believe that this is it, the final season of The Good Place is here, and we’ve already watched an episode  of it (ironically titled “A Girl From Arizona”). Someone save us from having to exist in…

5 Things We Want to See in Season 4 of ‘The Good Place’

‘The Good Place’ Season 3 Finale Review: Here We Go Again

Except, it’s not the same, is it? Except, we go into Season 4, into whatever’s coming, with something we didn’t really have before. And no, I’m not talking about the tears rolling through my cheeks as I write these words…

‘The Good Place’ 3×12 Review: Almost There

We’re almost to the end of the season, and it’s always bittersweet to be here. Because we really don’t want this show to end, we never do, and yet a part of us can’t help but wanting to know more,…

‘The Good Place’ 3×11 Review: Life is Complicated, Man

The Good Place has always been a sneakily deep show, especially for a half hour comedy. That’s, of course, part of its DNA, you can’t make a show about four humans that wake up in the afterlife and pretend this…

Our favorite TV Shows of 2018

There’s a lot of good TV out there. No, really, a hell of a lot of good TV, trust me, someone who just had to spiral her way into somehow narrowing this list down. But narrow it I have, with…

‘The Good Place’ 3×10 Review: Holy Forking Shirt Balls

Despite the fact that I have never actually come close to guessing where The Good Place is going, every week I come into it with the kind of positive outlook that could probably be compared to insanity, if you looked…

‘The Good Place’ Renewed for Season 4

For much of 2018, it’s felt like reality is, indeed, the Bad Place, and we’re stuck here, with no chance of the train ever coming around to get us out. But, now, come news that make us think that we…

‘The Good Place’ 3×09 Review: Woah, Janet.

We’re trying a new thing this week, or at least, a new thing for this show. We’re doing quick thoughts! Basically, I watch the episode and just list what I’m thinking as I do. So HERE WE GO: Who is…

‘The Good Place’ 3×08 Review: Fear of the Unknown

I don’t know how I was expecting this episode to go, but I do know I wasn’t expecting it to go like it did, which probably says more about me and expectations than anything else. But then again, The Good…

‘The Good Place’ 3×07 Review: Started From the Bottom

I hate this show, and that’s mostly because I love this show. Look, if you’d told me before “Fractured Inheritance,” that I would ever have any positive feelings for Eleanor’s mother OR Tahani’s sister, I would have laughed and called…
