My Moving Crush: Kristen Bell

I have liked Kristen Bell for a long time, but I have not really watched any of her shows. (Yes, yes – I know “Veronica Mars” is supposed to be awesome - I know.) Her public persona has always been delightful, and also incredibly smart. So during the Olympics when I saw like 30 million ads for “The Good Place”* and it looked, well, good I could not have been more excited. And, indeed, I watched and the first episode Monday was good. Like, really good. It reminds me a little of “Pushing Daisies” in its magical weirdness. And I mean that in the very best way. So now I get to enjoy Kristen the person (who hate the pay gap) and the performer (who hates clown paintings). That’s what I call a win-win.

* Called it The Good Spot because, due to my impending move, I apparently boxed my brain. I think it is somewhere in with the kitchen utensils. Anyway, watch this show!

It's actually called 'The Good Place' not The Good Spot, but yes, Kristen is fantastic in it and I recommend giving it a try.
I can't believe you never watched 'Veronica Mars' - that's just not right.... deducting points for that - go watch it now.
On a completely separate note - on my MUST WATCH new show list - 'Speechless' staring Minnie Driver. I'm just plugging
it, because I saw the first episode and fell in love with the show.

All the best with the move and will watch out for the show.
