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...

Funny, but something is missing....
2 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That's the only way i can sum it up.

It has moments that are extremely funny, then it just dies back down to being normal again in a split second. It seems to have trouble keeping audiences laughing, so basically it doesn't keep rolling out the laughs or follow any sort of pattern.

This show reminds me A lot of "arrested development", pretty much because of how I just described it above. It's quirky and kind of strange comedy, then its extremely funny and original, but then it's back to normal, then it has failed attempts at jokes......it's kind of weird.

The show seems like a mixture between "The Office" and "Arrested Development".

But it seems to lack a REAL connection with the characters or storyline. It appears that the show doesn't have a real Bonding "feel" or whatever you want to call it, which can be a HUGE problem.

The acting is good enough in most parts, then it suddenly gets really bad out of nowhere depending on who is on camera.

If you've ever seen Arrested Development or The Office, this show seems right at home at first, but suddenly lacks real character development and something is off about it.....it's close though!
