The Good Place s1
- An original pitch! Bitchy blonde dies and surprisingly finds herself in heaven ("The Good Place") after an unfortunate mix-up with a homonymous humanitarian.
- A commendable endeavour at colorblind casting has been made!
As a result, the show sometimes brings to mind a 1980s Benetton-ad, or - hey, wait - is it the real world I'm thinking of?
All the girls are still pretty, though. The main characters are wasp. Room for improvement.
- The plot takes rather an unexpected turn after a couple of episodes! Excellent finale.
- Although the dialogue is strikingly caustic at times, it's not exactly side-splitting, rolling-down-the-aisles hilarious.
It's entertaining enough, no more than that.
In short : Sure, why not?
