Well what was sold to me as “it is quirky, you might like it” turns out to be a piece of clever social satire, discourse on moral philosophers and excellent speculative fiction with jokes.
The premise for episode 1 season 1 is that a deeply selfish and at best amoral woman finds herself accidentally in a kind of heaven run by Ted Danson and full of frozen yogurt shops. However, that premise is very misleading in terms of what the show is like – Ted Danson kicking a small cute dog into the sun gives a better idea of the sensibility.
I’m on Season 2 already and have caught up. I might review it when Season 2 is over but…really hard to describe the show now without some major spoilers. (Nice to see philosopher Philippa Foot get name checked in a sit-com.)
I don’t know how long they can sustain the show but it is nice to see people trying.
