“Janet(s)” (December 6, 2018)
Spoiler warning: We totally spoil The Good Place, so if you have not seen it and want to go in fresh, go do that!
It seems weird that The Good Place was a show on a broadcast network at all, much less one that ran for four seasons and gave viewers so much to think about. Perhaps one of the more surprising aspects was D’Arcy Carden’s Janet, who rose above “Busty Alexa” status to become one of the more interesting characters. Janet is not nonbinary, but as five-timer Emelie Bataglia points out, Janet can work as metaphor for the nonbinary experience. In fact, there's a lot thats nonbinary about The Good Place in general.
