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...

Call me weird, but I like it!
6 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've watched all 4 episodes of "10 Items or Less" about 4 times each now. This is one of those rare shows that remains funny when watching it again and again. I had mentioned earlier that I was waiting for the show to come into it's own. Guess what? It's finding it's niche. It's sparking feedback and dialog from it's fans and when the show comes out on DVD (as it will undoubtedly will) I'm going to be at the local grocery store to buy it. :)

Okay, from the very first time I saw the previews, I knew it was a rip off of THE OFFICE and that Leslie was a poor substitute for Michael Scott. "10 Items or Less" is a poor shadow of THE OFFICE, but I have to admit that I was laughing from the first scene, but it was the awkwardness of Leslie in his new situation as an owner/manager of Greens & Grain. The thing that impressed me was that outside of Robert Clendim, the cast are virtually unknown, including creator/actor John Lehr. But the quirkiness of the characters works well and in my opinion, fun to watch.

Don't get me wrong, this show has to do A LOT to come close to being THE OFFICE, but it will be a fun show to watch as it comes into it's own.

There have been only two episodes shown on TBS, and my DVR is set to record all of the future episodes.
