Sympathetic old-school doughnut shop owner Arthur, his spunky young employee and aspiring artist, Franco, and their friends and patrons keep the shop going in a changing culturally-mixed inner city Chicago neighborhood.
The actor who plays physicist Leonard Hofstadter on the CBS hit comedy series "The Big Bang Theory" has taken his talents behind the camera for his new series, serving as the executive producer for the show about a man named Chip Curry (Jay R.

Unfortunately this show is getting dumped on from all sides. Christians are offended because it makes light of their religion (it doesn't). Anti-religious are annoyed simply because it's about religion. Big Bang Theory haters are annoyed because it's a very similar style of humor produced by and featuring Big Bang alumni.
First off I'll just say that this is NOT a vulgar comedy, at all. At least the first episode (which is all I've seen). This isn't 2 Broke Girls... this isn't even BBT-level crassness. If anything it's almost wholesome, a 90's broadcast sitcom throwback.
Judging by the pilot alone: It is very simple "canned-laughter" style sitcom that seems to be starting slow while laying the foundation of it's promising premise.
If you like standard sitcom-style humor, and aren't offended by the mere presence of religion in a comedy I'd say give this one a try. If you're a devout, easily offended Christian and/or hater of canned laughter... I'd say give this one a miss.
Personally? I want to see which direction they go once they get up to speed with the story. Until then I'm not ready to jump off.
