Everyone wonders what happens after death, but when Eleanor (Bell) dies tragically, she finds out that the afterlife is amazing. Filled with frozen yogurt, soulmates, and wonderful people who have done admirable things in their lives, it is everything you could ever ask for. The only thing wrong is Eleanor herself, who isn’t supposed to be in “The Good Place.” She finds that due to a clerical error, she’d been given someone else’s reward and has to be good in order to make sure her secret is not exposed.

Bonus features include extended episodes, audio commentary on season one episodes “Everything is Fine/Flying” and “Mindy St. Claire/Michael’s Gambit” and season two’s “Dance Dance Resolution” with creator Schur, executive producer Drew Goddard, and co-stars Jameela Jamil and D’Arcy Carden. Other extras include the finale special hosted by Seth Meyers, the 2019 Comic-Con panel, gag reels, visual effects reels, and a table read for the season one episode “Mindy St. Claire.”

Netflix’s Seth Meyers Comedy Special Lets Viewers Skip Trump Jokes

Netflix introduced binge-streaming, content recommendation software and fast-tracking credits and intros on original series. Now the subscription streaming pioneer is letting users skip jokes in a comedy special.

The concept reportedly originated from former SNL writer/comic Seth Meyers, whose comedy special, “Lobby Baby,” bows Nov. 5 on Netflix. The comic suggested viewers have the option to skip punchlines on President Trump — a staple of his NBC show, “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

“It was a way to build in the response to anyone who would say, ‘Oh, let me guess, there’s going to be jokes about the President,'” Meyers told CNN Business.

Meyers has a long career lampooning Trump, which began in 2011 when he poked fun of then headline star of “The Apprentice” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The comic contends the skip function is a joke in itself and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

“Look, sometimes at a fancy restaurant they’ll put parsley on your plate and you’ll think, well that’s a nice touch, but you’re not going to eat the parsley,” Meyers quipped.

Robbie Praw, director of original standup comedy programming at Netflix, said Meyers’ skip function was a “clever idea” in today’s hyper-partisan atmosphere.

“We’re thrilled he was able to take advantage of the Netflix experience in such a funny and innovative way,” Praw said.
