An excellent new comedy
I almost didn't watch The Good Place, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is well done and very entertaining. The writers have done a nice job of designing a biting satire on thinking about the afterlife without attacking any real religion in particular.
It has just the right amount of edge to it, something typically lacking in sitcoms, which are mostly pap. The show generates plenty of outright laughs, and it even has a significant amount of physical humor.
All of the characters seem to have been well cast, and the actors play their rolls well. In particular, Bell plays an incredibly selfish little shirt surprisingly sympathetically, a credit both to her and to the writers.
I hope they can keep up the good work they've done in the first few episodes. I suspect there are a few very important things about Michael and the Good Place that have yet to be revealed.
