Posted on

Hopefully you've been watching The Good Place, because it's one of the funniest shows on TV right now.

The theory is that a Good Place where everything is actually perfect would be too boring, so the architects had to spice things up a little.

NBC

"The Good Place can't just be perfect, mind-blowing bliss all the time," the Reddit theory explains. "That'd get boring, and would thus inherently not be perfect. Instead, the people have to be challenged to continually learn and grow. This is as much for Michael's sake as the rest of the characters."

The theory makes sense: The real Good Place might want to help people who maybe weren't that good to improve in their afterlife.

NBC

As for Michael, perhaps the Good Place is conducting an experiment to see if demons can be rehabilitated?
