Critic Reviews for The Good Place Season 2

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (17)

It's turned into something more daring and strange and amazing in its second season.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

The Good Place's first season was subtly informed by the absurdity of addressing weighty moral questions in the form of a network sitcom, and its second takes the meta to new levels.

Along the way, it gets to pursue the most fascinating questions it set up last season.

Sep 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The characters in the Good Place quickly discover eternal paradise isn't all it's cracked up to be - but for astute comedy fans this is simply heavenly viewing.

Sep 22, 2017 | Full Review…

The Good Place has essentially become TV's most interesting iteration of the "nature vs. nurture" debate.

Top Critic

NBC's The Good Place is one of the few programs I actually race to watch the second it becomes available.

Oct 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Can't wait to see where the incoming third season takes them.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the few shows brilliant enough to take big risks and then consistently make them work.

Nov 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The Good Place was able to easily transition from Heaven to Hell all the while retaining everything that made the first season great and building further upon its unique concept.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Few comedies in the modern TV landscape require such an important focus on narrative, but The Good Place thrives because of it.

Audience Reviews for The Good Place: Season 2

½

The Good Place gets even better in Season 2. After having his fake heaven rouse uncovered by Eleanor and her friends Michael tries again, and again, and again until, faced with a revolt from his fellow demons, he decides to team-up with Eleanor and her friends to escape to the real Good Place. It's a rather daring move to jump the story forward like this and to change the character dynamics, but it really pays off. It also helps in the character development and adds a sense of mystery as to what happened in the hundreds of past simulations. Additionally, the comedy is especially well-written, with a lot of clever, witty dialog. And, once again the series delivers a game-changing season finale. Instead of doing the same old and playing it safe, Season 2 of The Good Place does the unexpected.
