The Good Place 101

“Everything Is Fine” (Season 1, Episode 1)

See how it all began, as Eleanor woke up to Michael telling her she was in the Good Place. Fans watched as she and Chidi fell in love over the next three seasons, and it all started here, when Michael introduced the two as each other’s “soulmates.”

“The Burrito” (Season 2, Episode 11)

“Janet(s)” (Season 3, Episode 9)

If you can only watch one episode, watch this one. The four humans ended up in Janet’s Void, where they each looked like Janet. Carden’s performances were out of this world.

“Pandemonium” (Season 3, Episode 13)

The Good Place turned the tables in the Season 3 finale, as Eleanor was forced to play Michael’s part as the architect in the new experiment when he panicked. But when one of the new humans was Simone (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), Chidi’s ex, he knew he needed to be rebooted so he could help the new residents — and Eleanor then had to be the one to welcome him to “the Good Place.”

The Good Place‘s upcoming fourth season will be its last, and what better way to celebrate the series (or mourn its end) than by having your own mini-marathon?

Though you should definitely rewatch the entire series — it won’t take you too long since each of the three seasons only consists of 13 episodes — not everyone has the time to do that. However, you can still relive Eleanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson), Jason (Manny Jacinto), Tahani (Jameela Jamil), Michael (Ted Danson), and Janet’s (D’Arcy Carden) journeys before the fall.
