Helping Eleanor navigate her new surroundings are Chidi (William Jackson Harper), her kind, open-hearted "soulmate" who sees the good in people but finds himself facing quite a dilemma; her frustratingly perfect new neighbors, Tahani (Jameela Jamil) and Jianyu (Manny Jacinto); and Janet (D'Arcy Carden), a walking, talking source for all the knowledge in the universe.

I was looking for something not too serious to watch and stumbled upon The Good Place. At first I wasn't sure I wasn't a fan of the main character, Eleanor and the whole show seemed cheesy. I stuck it out though, and I am glad that I did. It is a wonderful show with plot twists that really caught me off guard. It has a great sense of humor, although cheesy, and in intelligent without being overwhelming. It tackles large philosophical ideas while having an entertaining storyline for 22 minutes at a time. Overall, it is an excellent show that I would highly recommend for anyone looking for entertainment. The characters are lovable and the storylines keep your attention.

Fun, fast, witty humor with top notch acting. I keep thinking this show can't come up with more content, surly they are going to run out of runway; pleasantly incorrect every time.

I absolutely adore this show! Such a great idea for a show and it's impossible for the characters to swear even the tiniest bit....proving that clean entertainment is still around. Do to some of the storylines are a bit iffy so I would recommend 14 and up for viewing. It is a great comedy with a terrific cast!
