Original, funny enough, and maybe with a hidden message...
20 September 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

Just watched the double-episode pilot of "The Good Place" and I would say it's a "Good Comedy".

First of all the premise is original. Another newcomer of the season "Kevin Can Wait" is the epitome of family sitcoms. This is almost in every way new. Only downside: it would be more fitting for a movie than a (long-running?) series. At some point might seem repetitive or loose its initial spark.

Second, it seems like it has high production values, I mean a wide set and good visuals. All bright and cheerful.

The script holds a few surprises to keep you interested and the blunt editing from afterlife to life and back adds to the entertainment.

I like Kristen Bell as the main character. The part suits her. The otherwise great Ted Danson is OK in this one, but I think the writers have to improve his lines.

Overall: Because of its very distinct premise, some might love it, some might hate it. Personally I find it entertaining enough to continue watching.
