The Brief: The Good Place is a TV comedy series about a version of the afterlife.
Is it heaven or is it hell? Neither…it’s The Good Place. NBC’s hit comedy series starring Kristen Bell is about a meticulously designed afterlife and the adults who must navigate it. It has some dark-comedic aspects as all the human characters are dead, but is generally upbeat.
There are sexual references, drug-related content, and binge drinking throughout. Some characters have sex, but it is not shown on-screen. There is no direct cursing because in The Good Place all curse words are magically replaced with similar-sounding words (“what the fork,” “bullshirt,” etc.). There is the occasional violence, some of which is gruesome, although mostly for comedic purposes.
