    I am going to have to admit I watched a couple of this season's new episodes and my interest was slightly piqued. Maybe there is hope for me.

    Another quirky funny show is Trial & Error. Season One was spot on. John Lithgow was on it and he is very funny.

    Season Two has Kristin Chenoweth on it. The humor is the same, but the show isn't as good. I record it and watch it when nothing else is on or recorded.

    Smart comedies are hard to come by, and I'm so happy we found this show. Just hate that I have to wait week to week now after catching up.

    Go Jags! lol

    Oh be careful about that! I binge watched season two of Handmaid's Tale over three days when my husband and kids were out of town. It's not good for your mental health to watch that much torture and depression all in one sitting.

    The Good Place, though, is prime binding material!

    Agree, I was out after a couple of episodes of Handmaid's Tale. Don't need that with the current news, just too much. Love, love, love the Good Place! Ted Danson's best role ever, I think, and always a fan of Kristen Bell. Janet is the best, too. The only one going a bit far for me, is the Judge. Or maybe she talks that way because she is made of hydrogen?

    I love the good place. I haven’t enjoyed a comedy as much since Arrested Development.

    I think it’s a type of humor that’s different from the typical sitcom and not everybody’s cup of tea.

    Yeah, binged Handmaid's tale over a week's time a few weeks back.

    Still recovering.

    So I had watched the first season of The Good Place and this thread just reminded me of the series- so at work today I put on Netflix and watched the first 4 episodes of the second season!

    It's one of my favorite shows. Really curious to see where they take this season, especially after the most recent episode

    I loved the first season despite the fact it had Sherry Shepherd on it because I love John Lithgow. When I saw Kristen Chenowith was on season two I gave it a hard pass. Not sure what it is about her but I actively avoid anything with her name attached.

    When I saw who the Judge was I actually groans out load. I can’t STAND her. Luckily, she was toned down and I don’t think we’ll see her too often.

    It's one of the few shows in recent memory that I now can't wait for the newest episode to come out!

    Used to be AHS....

    Yes!
    I’m a big fan of the Good Place. AND I know Janet! She was in middle & high school with my older son. They were in HS drama together. So fun to see someone you know “make it”!

    I know me too. It has been a long time since I have looked forward to a weekly show. I have some I record every week but I try to plan nothing on Thursday nights so I can be home to watch lol.
