All UUCC members are invited to join a 6-week discussion series on the NBC show The Good Place! Seasons 1-3 are currently available on Netflix, and for this summer discussion series, we’ll only be looking at seasons 1 and 2.
The Good Place was created by Michael Schur (producer of The Office, co-creator of Parks and Recreation), and is set in a fantasy afterlife. In this version of the afterlife, upon death, all humans are assigned a numerical score that is the sum of the positive and negative values of their actions on earth. That final score determines whether a human ends up in the good place or the bad place.
It’s a fun show with memorable characters, and hidden in its zany plot are forays into ethical and philosophical discussions on competing conceptions of what it means to be good, and what it means to be human.
We’ll meet on Zoom at 5:30pm on the following Tuesdays:
- August 18
- August 25
- September 1
- September 8
