Critic Reviews for The Good Place Season 4

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

The cast is charming enough, the dialogue sharp enough, and the production design lovely enough for viewers to enjoy seeing the same cycles, slightly altered - which is good, because they're also required to move the plot forward.

In other words, as great as this show is, it's probably about time to bring it in for a landing before we wind up on Jupiter or in the 1800s or inside the body of a shark.

This episode does a great job of balancing the overarching darkness with quotable quips and tender one-on-one interactions.

All in all, I'm extremely excited for the next episode, and for a season that has simplified things back to the best parts of The Good Place: goofs and ethics.

All of this, played through The Good Place's deceptively delicate hilarity, makes Michael's unflagging optimism seem slightly frayed around the edges... not that that's a bad thing.

... I find myself deeply invested in: Jason v. Derek! Everything about it fascinates me.

More than anything, I am glad to have The Good Place's particular sense of humor back for one last go-round.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

The show has made me a better person for a different reason, because I do believe in is the show's real message - that we owe it to each other to create a better life right now.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the strongest, funniest, most delightfully weird network sitcoms of the decade kicks off its final season by getting back to basics.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

It's always a good sign to me when a series returns to its core for a final season, and season four of The Good Place is clearly doing just that.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

It's The Good Place at its best, using a moral dilemma to force its dysfunctional cast of characters to work together, and cutting what could be a saccharine moral with barbed jokes and startling twists.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a promising start to the latest phase of this unpredictable gem, even as I'm eager to be done with set-up and dive into whatever strange ideas Schur and company have for us farther down the line.

Audience Reviews for The Good Place: Season 4

    Incredible final season! Even though I have not seen the ending, I 100% trust Michael Shur to deliver a satisfying ending.

    The first three seasons were very strong, funny, and well paced. Season four is good but seems weak compared to the others.

    Oh, man. After season 1 I thought: "How on earth can they keep this conceit going for another season?" Seasons 2, 3 and the beginning of season 4 have proved me wrong. This is one of the only TV shows that I evangelize to everyone I know, and is one of the only shows that I repeatedly go back and watch re-runs on Netflix. I LOVE THIS SHOW! If you're new to the series, START AT THE BEGINNING and enjoy the ride!

    just for the sensational debut, you can see that this final season will be perfect.

    Great start so far, excited to see more!
  • Oct 03, 2019
    Amazing show and it gets better and better with a real fun comedy but also a real perspective of life itself

    How did this show fall so far? The series was great when it began a few years ago; however, this season is a hard pass.
