It took me relatively little time to finish this series, which ended perhaps too soon.
Perhaps, from the ending, one can think that they had run out of ideas. He did not convince me … at first glance it seemed too hasty.
But let’s not talk too much about the ending, in case you are interested in watching it, I don’t want to spoil anything, at least not in these first lines.
Let’s start from the beginning: what is “The Good Place”? A fairly light series, at least at the beginning, which speaks of a hypothetical “afterlife”. The protagonist (Eleanor) seems to have ended up in the “good place” by mistake and from there begins the real incipit of the story.
However, the series evolves every time and surprises … And now, to make an in-depth analysis, it seems difficult not to tell about things that also take place in the plot.
That is, I would not be able to do an in-depth analysis if I had to think about not making too many spoilers.
I will try not to say precise things, but I warn you that what I am about to write is for those who have seen it all, or almost, so let’s go:
