For a comedy that shakes your brain awake: The Good Place Season 2

It is a public service to introduce your friends and family to The Good Place, the most thoughtful and bracingly original sitcom we’ve seen in years. The second season of the NBC charmer reached even brainier, zanier heights than the first, as Eleanor (a perfectly cast Kristen Bell) and her group of friends struggle to make sense of their strange purgatory, while demon overlord Michael (the brilliant Ted Danson) upends the show’s entire premise every few episodes. The third season premieres September 27; study up on your moral relativism before then. Available August 28.
