Holy forking shirtballs, NBC’s The Good Place has come to an end! The final episode has lived up to the hype.
(WARNING: The following content contains spoilers for those who have not seen the series finale.)
After rescuing humanity and getting into “The Good Place,” the gang finally got their happy endings. Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and Chidi (William Jackson Harper) have been reunited and Michael (Ted Danson) became in charge of the Good Place.
All seemed well until, they have spent eternity together. A proposal was made so that when people were content with their lives they could exit the Good Place and peacefully end their existence. Eventually, the time came for some members.
The cast has come a long way since the beginning of the series. Each of their characters have transformed into better versions of themselves. The first person that was particularly interesting was Ted Danson.
Danson’s character Michael was a demon bent on torturing people in an experiment. However, overtime he learned to enjoy humanity and form a strong friendship with Eleanor and the others. In addition, the lack of humanity in his character made me laugh every time.
Next, there was Kristen Bell’s character. Eleanor was a mean salesperson who only looked out for number one. As the series went on, she became kind, sweet and passionate. Overall, Bell’s performance was compelling in both comedy and drama.
Then we had the comedian of the show, Jason (Manny Jacinto). Jason was an unintelligent drug dealer and then he became a kindhearted person. Jacinto’s portrayal of Jason was impressive with his stupidity and Jacksonville references. Always had me giggling.
Tahani (Jameela Jamel) had also developed in the series. She was a name-dropping, condescending and wealthy philanthropist. Later on, she became a generous and level-headed person. All in all, Jamel’s portrayal of Tahani was impressive.
Lastly, we have Chidi. In the beginning, Chidi only based things in life on facts and he could not make simple decisions. Now he is more in touch with his emotions and he became a better person like the rest of the gang. Harper’s performance was another reason why the show was worth watching.
This final episode was a satisfying ending to the show. For those who are looking for a funny show to watch, The Good Place is the ideal choice.
