Somehow I missed the announcement that the second season of NBC’s The Good Place was premiering tonight. Here’s a quick “look” at the new season, which picks up from season one in a way that makes everything just new enough, it seems.
Season one spent a lot of time being both fascinating (“I can’t believe they did that!”) and challenging (“they just mentioned some legitimate ethical philosophers!”). This season looks to be more like a version of Lewis’s Screwtape Letters . . . just with lots more tech. As one of the few all-new shows that stuck with me last year, I’m hopeful that this show won’t experience any sophomore slump.
