Why ‘The Good Place’ should be your next TV binge
Good things come to those who wait. After NBC closed out a second era of brilliant primetime comedy (underwatched, yes, but beloved nonetheless) with The Office, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, and Community, it seemed unlikely the network would match its own established standard of greatness (remember Animal Practice? Cause I sure do).
Truthfully, it hasn’t. NBC is now known as home of The Voice and Blacklist and
masochist heaven This Is Us. But between the drama and reality and shows about Chicago is The Good Place, the last sparkling vestige of the network’s comedy heights — and it is delightful.
