Everything Is Fine

Thanks to some kind of error, Eleanor Shellstrop, an ordinary woman, enters the afterlife and is sent to the Good Place -- which is definitely not where she belongs.

Helping Eleanor navigate her new surroundings are Chidi, her kind, open-hearted "soulmate" who sees the good in people but finds himself facing quite a dilemma; her frustratingly perfect new neighbors, Tahani and Jianyu; and Janet, a walking, talking source for all the knowledge in the universe.
