Star Trek: Discovery and The Good Place each found humanity in hell
The CBS All Access series may be completely different from The Good Place, but they are both is "moving in parallel" with each other, says Genevieve Valentine. "Though they couldn’t be more tonally different, each show is deeply concerned with how one person making moral decisions — or compromising them — can change a world," writes Valentine. "And those complexities of subjective morality, utilitarianism, and acceptable collateral damage are all tied into stomach-sinking revelations: The characters in these stories are trapped in horrible places, the utopia they’ve been sold is a lie, and it’s a surprisingly small jump from that supposed utopia to their horrible reality. The central question of each show is whether their protagonists will be defined by the hell they’re in, or whether they’ll be able to redefine it."

The Good Fight is naming each Season 2 episode after how many days President Trump has been in office
The Season 2 premiere, which will be available on CBS All Access on March 4, will be titled "Day 408." The following episode will be called "Day 415." Co-creator Robert King explains that the naming pattern aims to make the Trump presidency feel like a hostage crisis, as Season 2 grapples with the "evergreens of this administration," including impeachment, Russia, prostitution, sexual harassment and a nod to Stormy Daniels. As Lisa de Moraes explains, co-creators Robert and Michelle King "have not yet decided the degree to which they will draw attention to the hostage-crisis episode titles, any one of which might become an iconic number if something big breaks in Trumpocalypse on that day."
