Sitcoms and science fiction or fantasy rarely mix. But The Good Place has combined them, and in the process become arguably the best show on television. A sitcom about a woman accidentally sent to the wrong afterlife sounds like a terrible idea, yet it’s consistently smart, funny, and packed with enough ideas and twists for a dozen shows. But what exactly makes it so special? How does such a dead-on-arrival premise make such a heavenly show?
