The fourth season begins as Eleanor takes over as architect and tries to take some concrete action. In the meantime, the group tries to experience the ideal by adapting to the challenges they face. These challenges start when four new neighborhood tests live under their supervision, which is surprising.
That's to be expected of a 20-minute introductory episode that sets up a final season. And, while the best episodes of The Good Place are the ones that give the characters more breathing space, the show continues to be utterly delightful television.
The characters continue to grow and you'd think in a show that is so absurd that you wouldn't have such deep rooted and emotional character growth but you absolutely do...I will miss it dearly but I am so glad to have had it.
The cast is charming enough, the dialogue sharp enough, and the production design lovely enough for viewers to enjoy seeing the same cycles, slightly altered - which is good, because they're also required to move the plot forward.
