Not technically about food, the sitcom revolves around protagonist Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) who wakes up in Heaven-like utopia unknown as “The Good Place” in the afterlife. As the name suggests, everything in this world is beautiful and pleasant, including the food. Think: perfectly swirled froyos and plump, juicy shrimps. Even the show’s writer admits that food acts like a supporting character in the show, very much like the city New York does in Sex and the City
