    Missed this one last year but it was renewed for a second season. Stars America Fererra & is from a producer of "The Office".

    I would have preferred if it was done in the style of The Office or Parks & rec & I think there's a missed opportunity there as It's a straight sitcom rather than a mocumentary, but I'm three episodes in & thoroughly enjoying it.



    I find it quite similar to Better Off Ted

    Enjoying this one also, loved Better Off Ted and this definitely reminds me in ways of it

    It's kind of like a US Trollied. I'm enjoying it.

    Really enjoy this one nice and light fun, second series has been stronger IMO.
    Definitely very similar to trollied on sky.

    I'd forgotten all about this, having seen the first two seasons. Was light as a feather and totally inconsequential, but lots of fun because of it in some ways. Must have a gander at season 3 at some point :)

    There is a large break in season 4 episodes as America Ferrera was off filming a movie but the season is back this week.

    They're going to have to parachute someone into it to take over the manager role, there's nobody strong enough (inc Glenn) in the existing cast to take it over


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,173 ✭✭✭ the_pen_turner


    its very strange. not sure why she is leaving
    the show is in decline , season 4 and 5 are a shaddow of the first 3. . very little of what made the show so great.
    season 6 is confermed but without serious redirection it will be the last. a lot of fans online didnt think it would get season 6.

    glenn is the only one currently there that could take over. i hope he does. the show might go back to roots a bit

    its hard to see a way out for amy without going to corperate. unless she gets fired or sick etc.
    i cant see it lasting without amy . herself and jonah are the center of all the story lines. everythng revolves around them. without amy jonah would have no storylines at all. he barely has any now

    That was a given.

    It could concievably have had another two or three seasons because it's incredibly inexpensive to make given the product placement.

    They really should have shifted focus to Garrett & Dina. They were perfectly set up to have another will they won't they after the birds incident. If they'd started to focus more on them, they would possibly have had more interesting storylines & longevity.

    A shame its ending, but 6 seasons is a good run, and hopefully it'll go out on a high.

    Superstore spin off Bo & Cheyenne in development at NBC

    Meh. Both fine as part of the large ensemble and especially with Bo used sparingly, but can't see them holding down a show of their own.

    A spin-off with Garrett and Dina on the other hand, I could definitely get behind.

    bo and cheyenne are great for a few minutes makeing a few funny comments on the goings on at a shop. i dont think i could stick 25min of them as main charicters let alone a whole series.

    i dont see what the story line would be. the romance, wedding and child angle is already done so whats left . neither are high achievers and will probably stay in a similar job

    garrett and dina would be great. loads of interesting angles andd story line posabilities.

    a spinoff would have to be as good as My name is Earl or Raising Hope for that dumb as a box of Crayons Southern American humour

    Agree. This would have great potential, Bo & Cheyenne (unless they're doing a "raising Arizona") type thing is useless

    Have been watching this for a few weeks, struggled with season 1 tbh but persevered and pretty much binged season 2 in the last three days. Might take a break now to make it last longer. I hate Bo, I'm sure he'll become a regular at some stage because I heard they considered doing a Bo and Cheyenne spinoff but god he's so annoying.

    They cancelled it. In fairness he's not in it that much and I find him grand in small doses!

    Oh no, I thought it ended on it's own accord. Doors it end on a cliffhanger?

    Wait are you talking about Superstore or the proposed spinoff?

    Superstore doesn’t end on a cliff hanger

    The spin off isn’t happening

    Bo isn’t a regular (and is fine in small doses)

    Enjoy the show

    Superstore ended last week in the US. Was a reasonable ending. Tied up loose threads etc. Left an ideal opportunity for a spin off

    Nearing the end of season 2; very enjoyable so far. Surprisingly funny, given the generic and innocuous-sounding setting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,187 ✭✭✭ thomas 123


    Finished everything on Netflix - great casual watching and surprisingly funny for a yank comedy, the absence of a laugh track helps immensely I’d imagine.

    i think the finale was one of th best of any show i have seen.
    it tied up lots of loose ends,
    managed a miracle , by changing a hated person into a lovable one again
    left room for 2 spin offs.

    they could have ruined the finale but they did it perfctly. the diference in writers etc was very plain to see. they brought back the originals.
    there were some nice references to the first ep.
    jerushas brother was a shock
