Here’s The New Show You Should Watch Right Now

Streamline recommends the third season of “The Good Place” as the new show you should watch this week. This new season debuted on NBC on Sept. 27. You can watch the new episodes on Hulu.

Premise: This third season takes the cast back to Earth. Those who died get a second chance at life. Although the characters don’t know this since their memories of the afterlife no longer exist, this group must work together to redeem their souls and get a second chance at a non-hellish eternity.

Stars: Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. Mike Schur created the show.

How excited should you be? This show has become a bona fide crowd-pleaser. Not only have critics heaped more praise on this show than almost any other series in 2018, “The Good Place” gets solid viewership numbers.

Any reasons to be skeptical? I find many of the comedic sensibilities of this show to be extremely irksome. Far too often, “The Good Place” has jokes that seemingly came from the mind of a high-schooler. I can’t stand how funny this show thinks it is that the characters can’t swear in the afterlife and are forced to say words like “fork” instead of “fuck.” Hard nope. That said, I still find much to love with the majority of the writing and if a few super-groaners help this reach a mass audience, then so be it.

Will everyone be talking about this? Yes. As mentioned, the show seems to truly have connected with a large audience and the media loves to write about it.
