The cast and characters: Without a doubt, the strength of The Good Place lies in the characters it has invented and the talented actors who play them. There's the nihilistic and vulgar Eleanor (Kristen Bell), the earnest and indecisive Chidi (William Jackson Harper), the sweet and simple criminal Jason (Manny Jacinto), and the name-dropping socialite Tahani (Jameela Jamil). And among the non-humans, there's also the deceptive immortal being Michael (Ted Danson) and the Siri-esque Janet (D'Arcy Carden).
Each has their own quirks, but as with everything in The Good Place (and real life, natch), there's much more to them than meets the eye. Eleanor is quick to form friendships and eventually learns to put others before herself when it matters. Tahani starts giving back. And even Chidi tries to be better at making decisions in his life. Their growth over the past three seasons is a good reminder to never judge a book by its cover — and it just so happens to make for awesome TV. (Photo via Colleen Hayes/NBC)
