1. The Good Place
What it’s about: Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) wakes up one day in a utopian town known as “The Good Place,” a kind of heaven where people who have been righteous throughout their lives go after they pass away. Except there’s been a mistake – Eleanor, who’s led a self-absorbed life, doesn’t deserve to be in The Good Place.
Why you should watch: The Good Place is the latest hit from Michael Schur, the creator of all our favourite sitcoms – The Office (US version), Parks and Recreation, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. So you can expect riotous antics, laugh-out-loud hilarity, relatable characters played by a diverse cast, and realistic situations that make you think. Unlike his previous sitcoms, Schur ventures into a little sci-fi here, and plants so many shocking and exciting twists you’ll be yelling, “What the fork?” So it’s best not to read up on this series too much before you start – just dive in and enjoy the ride!
Seasons One and Two are currently available on Netflix, and the third season will premiere on 28 September on Netflix Singapore.
