The finale really made the show work. Someone was thinking and writers of shows so rarely think.

If you had to compare this show to another comedy, which one will that be? (Trying to get myself to watch this show, but I'm not convinced yet :p)

This show had me smiling and laughing a lot. I rarely care for "comedies", because I usually find them inane and unwatchable. This show and its characters broke that mold.

The analogy is obviously a christian fantasy. "Town" = "Heaven"... please... I hear they are making an Islamic version called the Town of 72 Virgins

Storyline

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. Eleanor (Bell) arrives at the Good Place and realizes she doesn't deserve to be there. With the help of Chidi (Harper), Eleanor tries to right her wrongs seeking to finally earn her spot in the Good Place.

It is definitely not christian. There are people from multiple religious backgrounds in the place. I won't spoil the show, but it is not christian in the slightest. The suggestion of an afterlife does not immediately mean that the show is christian.

there is really no way to explain to you how wrong you are without a spoiler so maybe just go read the plot of the finale of season 1.
and like the commenter above me already said. afterlife is in no way exclusive to a single religion or believe

I'm also wondering what other comedies you could compare this show to. I've already watched all the episodes of this show, but I'd like to watch something that's similar to it while I wait for season 3 to start.
