Critic Reviews for The Good Place Season 4

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (15)

Maybe no good comes from our good intentions, maybe a glowing little firebug of light makes it down to a person in need. What matters is what you do with the time that you've got, and "The Good Place" put a lot of good into this world.

The Good Place went out on its own terms, with a finale that argued that choosing your own ending is both a reward you earn and a gift you give.

A comedic appraisal of philosophy, morality, and the meaning of life. All of this was made palatable to network TV viewers with the help of winning stars, joyful puns... and a lightness of tone that kept things defiantly frivolous.

With its tremendous heart and unwavering commitment to the stakes of The Good Place's ethical inquiries, [the series finale] is a delightful return to form.

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.

It only sometimes makes me sad when I remember what life was like the last time I watched new episodes of The Good Place, which was ... only nine months ago.

I personally was surprised to find the show reckoning with heavy texts about goodness and ethics and death, but at the same time it does make sense to me that [it] would engage with such things...

I started weeping and didn't stop.

The Good Place series finale was so beautiful, so well thought out, and so expertly executed that it nearly convinced me to die. It was that good.

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Much like Bojack Horseman, The Good Place asks viewers to grapple with morality, mortality, and the effects of our smallest choices.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Good Place is over. I'm sad that it's done, but I'm also grateful for the time I spent with it. I think I'm ready for it to go. Take it sleazy, everyone.

Feb 6, 2020 | Full Review…

After the midseason finale, The Good Place is at its absolute best, digging even deeper into the philosophy that they've been exploring without once losing its comedic moment.

Audience Reviews for The Good Place: Season 4

  • Oct 20, 2020
    The Good Place caught me from the first episode. Ted Danson and Kristin Bell are a great combination and the supporting cast is outstanding. The plot is interesting in season 1 and becomes gradually more outlandish and challenging as the seasons pass. But the humour never fails. I have binged this show multiple times and it never gets boring. I adored the final season and, while it broke my heart to see it end, laughed and cried and felt grateful to have seen it. I'd recommend this series to anyone who enjoys good television

    Well I was only mildly amused the first three seasons, this last one ends the show on a strong note. Definitely give you something to think about while getting it care about the characters.

    There aren't a lot of things that give me the feels like The Good Place finale. I have to seriously brace myself emotionally. I love it though.

    The deepest season, perfect final and full of lessons for life.

    Part of the art of good TV is knowing when and how to let it die. Good series go down peacefully and leave a wonderful legacy behind; others go kicking and screaming. Unfortunately, this one was the latter.

    This show is simply amazing with a mix of laughter, sadness, surprise, magic, love, the all time battle between good and evil, and a mind blowing imagination of heaven and hell, so dive in head first and bring popcorn for the ride your in for a tasty treat!!

    THE GOOD PLACE season 4 keeps to the first three season's themes of philosophy and human connectivity and manages to make the afterlife a little bit down to earth.
  • Sep 30, 2020
    It was a good concept when it started but then it spun out of control and seemed more interesting in using CGI and talk past everyone. I know it is a far fetched concept but at the root of and underlying theme was who was in love with who in another life. The big problem is , the show can literately take any turn it wants to get out of any situations, in a matter of minutes sometimes. could have been done so much better. I see why it isn't around anymore.

    "The Good Place" is one of those rare comedies that actually requires the viewer to watch the whole thing in sequential order. This show is endlessly innovative and features fun characters. The show is consistently funny and shines primarily in the first two seasons. I think the show is a lot shorter than many others but benefits from it since it is more focused on storytelling. I found myself surprised by every season and every turn the story took. The show also features many profound themes and ideas to think about hidden beneath the comedy which is an admirable approach to this type of show. Overall, this is a fun and addictive series that is worth checking out.

    I rate this whole series a 10 out of 10. It's a great experience from beginning to end with a fantastic cast, hilarious jokes, and a wonderful concept.
