I was intrigued by this show and looking forward to
watching the two preview episodes that aired on November 30
"Superstore" is a workplace comedy that takes us inside the
workday of employees of stores like Wal-Mart and Target. The
show stars America Ferrera ("Ugly Betty") as Amy, the floor
supervisor for the store, who struggles to keep her quirky
employees from making too many mistakes during the work day.
The show also stars Ben Feldman ("A to Z" and "Mad Men") as
Jonah, a new employee of Cloud 9 Superstore, who is
overqualified to work there. In the first episode, he
starts out as a fish out of water, but in the second
episode, he begins to fit in with the rest of the employees
of the store.
I didn't find the first two episodes of the show to be too
funny, and I thought the characters were al, stereotypes,
but NBC gave viewers a bonus episode available on the
network's website which I suggest you watch because it was
the funniest of the episodes I saw. The cast seems to
hit its stride and come together, and they actually seem to
try to fight some stereotypes. The cast is very good,
and although I think this show has room for improvement, I
think that viewers will come to love the characters if given
the chance. I give this show 3 and a half stars out of 5.
The show will air again on January 4.
