The Good Place Discussions
The Good Place is a town where those who have been good throughout their lives go once they have passed away. Michael (Danson) is the architect who oversees the town--and this is the first one he has been in charge of creating. Eleanor (Bell) arrives at the Good Place and realizes they have her name right, but everything else is wrong. She isn't meant to be there at all. With the help of Chidi, her soul mate (Harper), Eleanor tries to right her wrongs, seeking to finally earn her spot in the Good Place.

[Discussion] Anyone else think EP09 was kinda boring?
Trying to give Brooklyn 99 a chance because I saw that Schur was co creator. I'm up to episode 9 in season 1. I'm really trying but Samberg is just a little to over the top for me. I thought I'd enjoy it bc I love The Good Place. Will keep trying though.

S3E13 Is “hill of beans” a Good Place reference I’m forgetting?
(media) The latest episode of The Good Place podcast covering [S3E13] with Mike Schur and Ted Danson
There’s a major plothole that i just noticed now in season 3. If the good place hasn’t gotten residents in over 300 years, but Mindy St Claire got her own “medium place” in the 1980’s-1990’s that means Mindy St Claire is technically better than everyone whos died in those 300 years.
I've browsed and browsed.... Does anybody know which platform is streaming The Good Place S4 E1-8. I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I'm not having much luck finding the answer to this question. Side question: Why are streaming platforms only offering the later half of season 4?

Bernard Williams (philosopher) & The Good Place [Spoilers for S4EP12]
(media) Noticed during my second time watching the show that the office where Michael signs the contract in The Good Place in S4E12 is the same exact office in S1E9 where Eleanor quits her job in a flashback.
(media) I was watching this scene from Season 5 Episode 8 of Parks and Recreation and I was getting HUGE The Good Place vibes. Maybe this scene was inspiration for that part of “The Good Place”?
