Critic Reviews for The Good Place Season 2

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (17)

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

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

Sep 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The characters in the Good Place quickly discover eternal paradise isn't all it's cracked up to be - but for astute comedy fans this is simply heavenly viewing.

Sep 22, 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…

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.

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.

Sep 4, 2018 | 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…

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

Audience Reviews for The Good Place: Season 2

  • Nov 03, 2019
    The laughs and the journey continues through season 2.
  • Oct 27, 2019
    Enjoyable. But eliminates any character development from Season One. I had no interest in anything that was going on. They could've gotten the important bits and put it one (maybe two) episodes. First two episodes do nothing, the first is interesting but really slow paced. 2nd episode just straight up bores me. Janet became a character in this season as well as Jason and even Tahani a little. Ending was okay. It passes the time. Nothing compared to the masterpiece that is season 1!

    Even though this season of the good place has a slow start, it picks up the pace after a few episodes and is even more dramatic and funny than the first.
  • Sep 29, 2019
    At times, the second season episodes appeared forced. The writers seem to have struggled with the plot line with the massive suspense already out at the end of the first season. Like in the first season, through the laughs and serious philosophies, the story picks up in the later episodes. Some amazing set work.
  • Sep 16, 2019
    The first season was fantastic with its big twist that it is actually the Bad Place, but this season did not have that. It is just the same repeat over and over again which makes it boring to watch. It needs new ideas.
  • Sep 08, 2019
    Smart, funny, and so refreshing! I adore this series and the characters. This show always gets a laugh out of me no matter how many times I've seen it but it also makes you think. Brilliant show!
  • Sep 06, 2019
    amazing. would 100% recommend!
  • Aug 18, 2019
    Not as good as season 1 but still is funny, and 100% bingewatchable -87%
  • Aug 04, 2019
    Season 2 is still a great season, however it isn't as shocking, twisted or funny as its predecessor. The performances are still funny.
  • Jul 17, 2019
    I'm not a critic. Neither are you. Just watch the freaking show, it's neat.
