Subject: The Good Place is finally over, and what an ending it was.

I'm not going to spoil anything here. I just wanted to write about how much I love this show and how it's resonated with me so strongly.
Four seasons, fifty-two episodes, and consistently good writing throughout it all. I laughed, I cried, and I was absolutely gobsmacked at many of the twists the show kept throwing at us.
And through it all, it never lost the message of hope. Hope that humanity is good and worth saving, hope that we as individuals all have worth. Because this show ultimately is about kindness and redemption, wrapped up in hilarious jokes and poignant, heartfelt moments. I'm still ugly sobbing from the finale, but in the best way possible. It was everything it needed to be, didn't overstay its welcome, and gave us a satisfying conclusion to the show. I wish it didn't have to end, but that's partly what makes it so beautiful—the writers knew their time was short and made every second count, rather than dragging it out for years on end.
I think this show couldn't have come at a better time, with the world seeming to be turning upside-down. Keep holding onto that hope, y'all. We could all use a little more of it in our lives.
And take it sleazy.
