Review of The Good Place

Thursdays, 9:00 PM ET on NBC

30 minutes

In Michael Schur's new comedy series, Kristen Bell plays Eleanor, a woman from New Jersey who comes to realize that she hasn't been a very good person. She decides to turn over a new leaf by learning what it actually means to be "good" or "bad," and then trying to make up for her past behavior. Ted Danson plays Michael, who, through an unlikely set of circumstances, comes to be Eleanor's guide through her self-designed self-improvement course.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Kristen Bell is the perfect actress to play the likably "bad" girl in "The Good Place." As Eleanor, a recent, mistaken arrival who's trying to change her selfish ways, Bell must swing from aggressively terrible (especially in the flashbacks) to earnestly aspirational. It's a winning show with a strong premise that gets better as it goes.
