The Good Place

A show about the inherent “goodness” of people is definitely something you want in your comfort binge rotation. If you have yet to see the show, I won’t spoil any of the twists and turns here (but if you’re familiar with the first season, you can click here for a fun ride down memory lane).

The basic premise of The Good Place is that a woman (Kristen Bell) finds herself in heaven after she dies in a freak accident. But she’s not supposed to be there. Her overall “goodness” level is somewhat questionable.

So, with the help of moral philosopher Chidi Anagonye (William Jackson Harper), she sets out on a quest to become a better person. The journey from there is often unpredictable, deeply fascinating, and always thought-provoking.

Once you’ve familiarized yourself with the series, it’s a prime candidate to be placed on an endless loop on your TV, reminding you of the potential good that resides inside all of us.

Also, total bonus, the theme song is short, sweet, and completely calming, ensuring that you’re not jarred out of sleep and/or comfort binge reveries as each new episode pops onto your screen.
