dragah says 'A' - Stand-up comedian/actress Maria Bamford (portrayed by herself) moves back to Los Angeles after spending six months away in recovery for bipolar disorder and attempts to build up her life from scratch with the help of her agent Bruce Ben-Bacharach (Fred Melamed). Throughout the entire first season, flashbacks are employed to gain an insight on Maria's backstory and her relationships with her family and friends. ////////////////////// 'B' - After she is struck and killed by a tractor-trailer carrying a billboard for erectile dysfunction products, a woman named Eleanor Shellstrop wakes up to discover she has entered the afterlife. When she is told by Michael, her facilitator, that she is in a utopia called "The Good Place" (located in sector 12358w) because of her good deeds by helping get innocent people off death row, plus other international humanitarian work, she realizes that a mistake has been made as people think she is someone else with the same name. Additionally, upon arrival, she learns that each person in the good place has a soulmate with whom they are matched and, accordingly, will forever live with in eternity. Hoping to stay in The Good Place, Eleanor must hide her morally imperfect behavioral past from everyone except for her assigned soulmate Chidi, who was a university ethics professor in life. To avoid being sent to "The Bad Place", she chooses Chidi to teach her how to become a better person. Shortly thereafter, Eleanor realizes that her behavior and actions can and do catastrophically affect their world, causing negative and sometimes disastrous events in the neighborhood where she was assigned to live (and which was personally designed and built by Michael). She soon learns that she isn't the only "mistake" that was sent to this afterlife, indicating there may be others like her hiding behind a precarious facade.
