    Season 3 opens up with a quartet of episodes that confirms that this group of cast and writers is equipped to make this story work wherever and whenever things may lead.

    This is comic fantasy operating on the highest level, still capable of ending each episode with a jaw-roping twist that makes you wish you should skip right to the next. [1-14 Oct 2018, p.11]

    The NBC sitcom is still surprising, still meticulously plotted, and still hilarious at an extremely high velocity. ... Since season one, The Good Place has repeatedly rebooted its central narrative and shifted our understanding of its setting and what its characters are capable of doing within it. That it’s still able to do this so skillfully in its third season, without ever becoming remotely predictable, is an astonishing feat.

    Television's smartest--and easily one of its best--comedies, NBC's The Good Place, is set to return for its third twist-filled, morally complex season, and we're all better for it. ... The only show on television of any kind where you can get intellectually stimulating and abstract lessons on philosophy and morality while also laughing hysterically at made-up swear words and pop culture.

    The show has radically reworked itself from season to season, and even within them, but its underlying architecture of people striving for goodness and falling short hasn’t changed, and it can’t. Instead of having to work around that limitation, The Good Place has made it its central theme. Unlike most network sitcoms, The Good Place allows its characters to change.

    This comedy about a group of people experiencing the afterlife has done it once again. Still doesn't quite match the perfection that wasThis comedy about a group of people experiencing the afterlife has done it once again. Still doesn't quite match the perfection that was season one, but found it stronger than season two. While the last season was definitely fun, I felt there were a little too many bottle episodes in the middle. This season is a lot quicker-paced and it goes to a lot of different locations. The show's creator Michael Schur has stated he doesn't like it when plot points are stretched out, and he really doubles down on his opinion here. The audience is thrown from one interesting and entertaining plot point to the next. I won't go into any spoilers, but the characters' fates are always at risk and the show does a great job of keeping you in a surprising sort of suspense considering this is a comedy.

    The show hasn't lost any of its great sense of humor. You get to see a lot more interaction between all the characters, which felt a little missing from the last one. Once again, the entire cast knocks it out of the park. Kristen Bell is the MVP, brilliantly bringing Eleanor Shellstrop's sassy humor to life while also excelling at the emotional parts.

    Again set and lightning wise, this remains one of the best looking comedies on TV.

    If you're already a fan, you probably won't be disappointed. If you're new to this, I suggest you start from the beginning. This is one of those shows you just can't jump into.

    but despite everything it is still an amazing sitcom , i mean what else you wanna watch instead of the good place ? that horrible big bang theory?? no please ...

    I believe we just waited so much for its third season of The Good Place that, when it came, i was waiting so much about everything.I believe we just waited so much for its third season of The Good Place that, when it came, i was waiting so much about everything. Unfortunately, the first episode has a lazy development, and you just wait for more action. That action that was characteristic for the series, because it is a 22 min series that everything happens!! I am sorry about Janet too. The best character of the series has been used to be sit in a chair reading their feedback. The final of the episode has the same mystery than the others seasons, but the result about all the hole episode makes you to be tired and not anxious to watch the next episode next week. Expand
