Trivia

A detailed script is written for each episode outlining the overall story arc. However, this script is not shown to the actors; instead they are provided with a loose outline of the plot, often finding out about it as they film. All dialogue is improvised spontaneously by the actors on the set. A typical 22-minute episode will be edited-down from roughly 30 hours of raw improvised dialogue and scenes. John Lehr describes their production style as "similar to Spinal Tap." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Leslie: This is the Greens and Grains grocery store. It's been in my family for five generations. This is my father, Budd. He never thought I'd amount to anything, so I went to New York City to prove him wrong. He died before I could do so. And now I'm back in Ohio running the Greens and Grains grocery store. The crew here is really counting on me. I hope I don't screw this up...

The show is set in a locally owned grocery store.
4 December 2006 | by (Houston Tx) – See all my reviews

The show is set in a locally owned grocery store. The founder's son has inherited the store after the death of his father. The characters primarily consist of the owner/son and the quirky employees. A very formulaic premise. I don't normally think of TBS for original comedy. Thus, I was not expecting much. Boy, was I surprised. It was very funny.

The generally unknown cast is appreciated as it is a nice contrast to the recycled comedy actors on the Big 4 networks. The first episode did a nice job of introducing the characters with humor and even had a little dramatic tension. If subsequent episodes are this smart, I am definitely hooked. 9 out of 10.
