The mind behind Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine has accomplished something wonderful with NBC's new 30-minute comedy 'The Good Place.'

You can’t swear in The Good Place. In this heaven-but-not-quite-Heaven, each unapproved word or phrase has a friendlier alternative, like “bullshirt,” “motherforker” and “ash hole.” If you’re negative at all, the universe responds in kind, sometimes creating sinkholes, sometimes sending shrimp flying through the air. There is a frozen yogurt store on every block.
