the good place digital series

We’ve spent three seasons watching four not-so-great people learning to be good, but sometimes it’s just so fun to be bad. At least, there’s a lot of comedy to be mined out of the ridiculously evil, as The Good Place fans have delighted to learn every time Marc Evan Jackson‘s Shawn has appeared onscreen.
