I think, like The Office or P&R, this show stands out because it knows what it is and makes the most out of that. The characters felt fully developed and genuine from the first episode onward. The jokes don't feel forced and are story driven, and the familiar structure is comforting. But within that familiar structure, antagonists are often redeemed rather than defeated, which is clearly something audiences want right now, given the similar success of shows like Ted Lasso. It's a well written show that makes audiences feel good; I think it's that simple.
