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. Written by carly lawless

Take it sleazy
31 January 2020 | by Dracyan_TheRealOneSee all my reviews

I know true perfection doesn't really exist and that every show has it's flaws, but with The Good Place I just can't think of what they would be.

The Good Place is a fantastic show that I will forever remember fondly and to anyone reading this I hope you give the show a chance and watch it through.

Take it sleazy.
