After two seasons of comedy and philosophy, The Good Place remains a great joy. It’s the best science fiction show on television, with twists and intricate, earned reveals that hint at a watchmakers’ dream of a writers’ room.
The show’s third season doesn’t start until late September, but in the hiatus, NBC and its creators and performers have something new: a podcast. Not that podcasts about TV shows are new, but this one—hosted by Marc Evan Jackson, who plays the demon bureaucrat Shawn on the show, and guested by its performers and creatives—is a little odd. It’s at once an ad, red meat for the show’s base, and a further sign that binge-y, long-arc shows need to engage with viewers in new ways. Oh, also, it’s … good.
