Quick Take: THE GOOD PLACE on NBC: “Everything is Great!”

THE GOOD PLACE returns to NBC tonight for Season 2, with an episode titled “Everything is Great!” and though the character who utters the line in the show might not be telling the whole (slash any of the) truth – believe me when I tell you that everything, from the writing to the performances, to the tweaks made to the town in the wake of Michael’s epic failure, is truly great. Season 1 of THE GOOD PLACE ended with Eleanor

Talking THE GOOD PLACE S2 with Luke Guldan

At the end THE GOOD PLACE’s first season finale, which returns tonight for a special premiere after the AMERICA’S GOT TALENT finale (on NBC), the premise of the show (that found Kristen Bell’s Eleanor Shellstrop “incorrectly” sent to the good place after she died) was blown to bits by the revelation that she was never in the good place, but was in the bad place the whole time.  Ted Danson’s Michael was a master manipulator and in the final moments

BETTER THINGS is back (and BETTER than ever)

BETTER THINGS was easily one of the best shows of 2016. Emmy-nominated star Pamela Adlon and her creative team put together something real, raw, dark, funny, endearing, and beautiful in season 1 and it should be no surprise that they’ve done it again with Season 2, which premieres tonight at 10/9c on FX. Adlon’s story of Sam, her daughters, and her mother Phil, dives even more deeply in season 2 into the exploration of modern life – what it means

My Take On…YOU’RE THE WORST S4

Season 3 of YOU’RE THE WORST ended with Jimmy proposing to Gretchen and then immediately abandoning her in the hills as he took off for who knows where. When Season 4 picks back up tonight (at 10/9c on FXX with an hour long premiere), the show skips the immediate aftermath of what happened on that night, and shows us where our favorite people are 3 months down the line. It should be no surprise that neither Jimmy nor Gretchen is
