Critic Reviews for The Good Place Season 2

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (18)

It's turned into something more daring and strange and amazing in its second season.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

The Good Place's first season was subtly informed by the absurdity of addressing weighty moral questions in the form of a network sitcom, and its second takes the meta to new levels.

Top Critic

Along the way, it gets to pursue the most fascinating questions it set up last season.

Sep 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The Good Place has essentially become TV's most interesting iteration of the "nature vs. nurture" debate.

Top Critic

NBC's The Good Place is one of the few programs I actually race to watch the second it becomes available.

Oct 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Yes, The Good Place is strange -- also ridiculously inventive, silly, smart and strangely, unexpectedly deep.

Top Critic

One of the most hilarious and fun comedies that exists today on TV. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Can't wait to see where the incoming third season takes them.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the few shows brilliant enough to take big risks and then consistently make them work.

Nov 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The Good Place was able to easily transition from Heaven to Hell all the while retaining everything that made the first season great and building further upon its unique concept.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Few comedies in the modern TV landscape require such an important focus on narrative, but The Good Place thrives because of it.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The writers haven't let us down yet - with the stakes shifted yet again last week, I can't wait to find out where we're off to for the rest of the season.

Audience Reviews for The Good Place: Season 2

  • Oct 06, 2020
    Maybe (along with the fourth) the best season.
  • Sep 25, 2020
    Maybe a 5/10. Saw this a while ago. This is where the show starts to get really bad.
  • Aug 30, 2020
    Fantastic! Great ideas, excellent story, stellar production quality, and great acting.
  • Aug 14, 2020
    I thought it would be more of the same, but the show came with some new scenarios. Some characters really rise to the occasion (Janet), while others remain quite tiring to the point of becoming annoying, like an old joke. Still, they got my full attention with some good humour and nice ideas
  • May 22, 2020
    Please see my review in season 1.
  • May 07, 2020
    Worst show on tv. Hated every second of it! DO NOT WATCH
  • Apr 19, 2020
    Even better than the first season
  • Apr 04, 2020
    Brilliant! The metaphors presented with the writing, and all the silliness, supported by great acting give this season a reason to rewatch it many many times over again.
  • Feb 27, 2020
    This is now my favorite show, I accedentaly saw the whole season in 2 days!
  • Feb 23, 2020
    An absolute must-see! I was surprised at how great it is, considering it's a network TV program.
