NBC’s “Superstore” is our new OBSESSION. The comedic genius and diversity of a hilarious cast and crew will make you a fan of the show and will have you wishing you had a Cloud 9 superstore in your city.
Description from NBC:
America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”) and Ben Feldman (“Mad Men,” “A to Z”) star on the hilarious workplace comedy “Superstore” about a unique family of employees at a supersized megastore. “Superstore” centers around Amy (Ferrera), the store’s most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together, and newly hired Jonah (Feldman), a dreamer determined to prove work doesn’t have to be boring. Their fellow associates include the sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn, “Key & Peele”), the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos, “Mulaney”) and the sweet teenager, Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom, “Shameless”). Overseeing the store is Glenn (Mark McKinney, “The Kids in the Hall”), the store’s affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash, “Super Fun Night”), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron fist.
From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions. “Superstore” was created and written by Justin Spitzer (“The Office”), who also serves as an executive producer with director Ruben Fleischer (“Gangster Squad”), David Bernad (“Enlightened”) and Gabe Miller & Jonathan Green (“The Office”).
We have fallen in love with Superstore. It has such a talented cast, the writing is genius, and the show has so much diversity. Being from a Hispanic background it is so inspirng to see this cast. This show is NECESSARY epsecially in a world where we live with people who are still apprehensive to diversity. America Ferrera is a true inspiration to us and many around the world. And so is the entire cast. Yes, it is true. People from diverent ethnic backgrounds can work together and actually get along. The writers of the show are serisouly amazing. They bring up topics that most are afraid to talk about including race, religion, educational backgrounds, and financial struggles. We love that the show started off introducing Ben Feldman’s character Jonah as a college graduate. He comes off to some employees, especially Amy, as a now it all.
Just becuase he went or graduated college doesn’t automatically make him the boss. He has to start from the botton, but is determined to show everyone that he can put in the hard work. The show hasn’t gone into his financial background, but Amy shows how not everyone has the money to attend college no matter how smart you are. Everyone has a different background and it is necessary to have a show like this on TV. Superstore is a 30 minute comdey on NBC and it will have you laughing from beginning to end. There is not one member of the cast who doesn’t belong on the show. Mateo (Nico Santos) likes to be in charge and no one is getting in his way. Amy (America Ferrera) is “the responsible one” who is always on time haha. She likes things to run smoothly, but don’t think she doesn’t know how to let loose and have a good time. Glenn (Mark McKinney) is the boss we wish we had. He is nice and worries about his employees and their feelings, but don’t push his buttons especially on “Sturgess &Sons” or you will see another side of him. Jonah (Ben Feldman) is the fun guy who is always looking to make the workplace a place people can actually enjoy. He is a great test taker and knows how to make an impression. Garrett (Colton Dunn) has the most work flirts in the store and probably the wise one in the group. He embraces his disability and always has good advice like “Carry a box so it looks like you’re doing something”. Dina (Lauren Ash) likes to be in charge. She isn’t afraid to be herself and knows just about every song. Some might call her the human jukebox, but has never heard of Michael Jackson. 😉 Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom) is a free spirit who sometimes acts before she thinks about it. And let’s not forget that she will be taking over the gymnastics world in Tokyo 2020.
The “Superstore Olympics special” premiered last week and it was one of our favorite episodes. We noticed many “haters” live tweeting that they didn’t even laugh once. We literally watch this show with our family and friends every episode and ALL of us are laughing. Some like to make this a race issue and say that this show was only made for Hispanics or Latinos to enjoy. We think this is completely absurd. Major props to the cast, especially Lauren Ash, for calling out haters of the show. Comedy and making people laugh isn’t based on gender or race. We feel sorry for those who don’t appreciate this show. Thank you to everyone involved in making this show. You have us laughing non stop and always bring a smile to our faceswith every episode. If you haven’t seen Superstore, we strongly enccourage you to watch before the season 2 premiere on September 22, 2016. You can thank us later!
