C’mon, The Good Place doesn’t belong in this discussion. Sure it’s uplifting, but it’s not feel-good brain candy. Its brilliance is surely more relevant to its popularity.
That comparison is the first thing that came to my mind, too. Friends never appealed to me but Office Space holds up, and she was great in it. What do you mean about her being ruined by trying to be a star or sex symbol? Not trying to argue, just don’t know enough to understand. Explain it to me like I’ve only half-watched a half-dozen episodes, only because it was on every TV at the gym for a while, if you wouldn’t mind.
