Team Cockroach

Series 2 - Episode 4 Team Cockroach



After a few high-concept episodes The Good Place settles down into a new formula, with demon Michael (Ted Danson) trying to team up with the four humans he’s been trying and failing to torture in order to safeguard his own future.

Kristen Bell’s Eleanor, though, needs some persuading, and even a hilarious flashback to the embarrassing death of fellow victim Tahani (British star Jameela Jamil) can’t convince her that making a deal with a literal devil is in her best interest.

Overall it’s a quieter, talkier episode, but it’s still full of great one-liners – especially when the cast start reciting the bizarre names of the various clam chowder restaurants in their neighbourhood.


Michael approaches his problems from a new angle, while Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason struggle to make a collective decision.
