Superstore is a comedy TV series by NBC that’s been running for four seasons and, I kind of like it. It is about what happens in a store of a large supermarket chain called “Cloud 9”, covers the interpersonal issues between the employees working there and makes fun of the rigidity of corporate policies.
The story of each episode is mostly ordinary, some episodes even being dull, but the series overall impresses you, thanks to brilliant character definitions – a Christian manager who is extremely nice, a hard-working illegal immigrant and gay “Mateo” (played superbly by Nico Santos), a teenage mother, a rough and tough female assistant manager “Dina” (played by Lauren Ash), a wheelchair-bound receptionist (played by Cotton Dunn) and a bunch of incompetent store assistants. The lead pair Amy and Jonah are played brilliantly by “Ugly Betty” fame America Ferrera and Ben Feldman.
I love strolling through malls and supermarkets, so this series was appealing to me. If you want to unwind after a long day, this series which is running into Season 4, can be a good watch.
