The shows are so fun, they are each other's fans.

You’re dead, but that’s just the beginning of the story. You awake in the paradise side of the afterlife only to realize you’re there by mistake. “The Good Place” takes this concept and turns it into a hilarious examination of surprisingly complicated moral dilemmas. The show combines fantastic and surreal writing, sharp dialogue, and great performances from core cast members Kirsten Bell (Arizona trash bag, Eleanor Shellstrop), Jameela Jamil (name-dropping socialite Tahani Al-Jamil), William Jackson Harper (eternally frustrated ethics professor Chidi Anagonye), Manny Jacinto (pre-successful DJ Jason Mendoza), Ted Danson (morally transient supernatural architect, Michael) and D’arcy Carden (the heavenly AI, Janet).

This is pretty forking cool, benches.

Rich socialites are forced to live in a small town. A remake of "Green Acres"? Hardly. Where the aforementioned show stuck with the same schtick over and over, “Schitt’s Creek” relies on the Rose family’s subtle and consistent character growth to fuel the comedy. It’s also a masterclass in acting when it comes to making actors feel like a believable family, even as they’re over the top and absurd. David (show co-creator Dan Levy) and his sister, Alexis (Annie Murphy, not to be confused with actual Levy sibling, Sarah, who plays local waitress, Twyla) not only act and speak related, but their gestures resemble elements of their parents, Moira (the always perfect Catherine O’Hara) and Johnny (Eugene Levy, whose eyebrows are among Canada’s greatest contributions to art).

David Rose's sexuality is one of the show's gifts to viewers, not only because it's presented so positively but also because it is an important aspect of David's character without being the only focus.
