    I didn't like them, I should have said the funniest secondary characters, especially john ralphio. They were hilarious and really well played, utterly irredeemably awful characters.

    I didn't think they were funny. Whenever they appeared I just wanted them off the screen as soon as possible.

    Has anyone seen The Good Place?
    It's the makers of Parks and Recreation's new show, about a woman who wakes up in heaven, but it appears she's only there by a bureaucratic error and she's not a very nice person after all. Or something like that. I only lasted half an episode, cos I didn't laugh and didn't see much potential for more laughs. But then I felt the same way about Parks & Recreation when I first watched it, so I'm gonna give it another go.

    definitely - a different league - far more likeable characters for a start

    Definitely worth watching the whole season, the humour comes from knowing the characters and watching them react to situations, rather than funny jokes per se.

    No, no. 30 Rock wins (narrowly) because of its unpleasant characters. And because it's last season didn't turn into scholcky mush.

    I finished The Good Place and wish I hadn't wasted my time. It's almost entirely laugh free and the plot resolution is unsatisfactory.
    Will have to find something else to fill the void.

    I now have a job in local government and can now report that Parks & Recreation is 100% a documentary

    My youngest brother works in Parks and Rec (Not in the office) and attests that the office is exactly like the documentary.
