What does it mean to be a good friend? Is it ever okay to tell a lie? How do you make a decision? What makes someone a good person?
Exploring ethical philosophy is an age-old tradition that has left us with a lot of questions and not a lot of consensus on the answers.
The Good Place takes all of these questions and wraps them up in a hilarious and heartwarming sitcom.
