"Dirtbags in Paradise"
Have you been watching "The Good Place"? Now in its second season on NBC, it's a nimble and lighthearted take on the afterlife that combines two of my favorite things, actress Kristen Bell and moral philosophy. Bell plays Eleanor, a woman who finds herself in a cheerful afterlife full of frozen yogurt called "The Good Place." "You know how you feel when you see otters holding hands?" asks Michael, the archangelic "architect" of the neighborhood, which is ostensibly designed for people who have led the saintliest of lives. "That's how you're going to feel every day here." 

There's just one problem: Eleanor isn't supposed to be there. Her earthly life was selfish, lonely and cold. She's a dirtbag in paradise, drunkenly hoarding buffet shrimp in her bra and ineptly trying to pass for a good person. To help her learn to be good, she enlists the help of Chidi, a moral philosopher prone to anxiety-induced stomachaches.
