Every now and again Netflix throws up something so random, yet at the same time so utterly compelling and so bloody watchable, that you would never - for a minute - think of unsubscribing.
The Good Place is sublime. The concept is simple, yet throws in subtle twists just for fun. Imagine dying and going to the good place, only to find out there's been a glitch: you're not meant to be there. You were destined for the bad place. Kristen Bell and Ted Danson star in the afterlife gone awry. The script fizzes (as does Ms. Bell) and leaves you wondering what makes frozen yoghurt, clown paintings and sink holes so attractive. And, try like fork, it's impossible to swear. As you can probably gather, I love it.


  1. This looks good. It's added to the list.

  2. We haven't had Netflix since we binged on Breaking Bad, way back. Might be time to go again?

    1. Go for it. It's not even the cost of two pints of grog a month.

  3. Thanks for the heads-up - What the fork indeed. Sounds very funny.
