James Widdoes directs this exclusively Hulu, 10 to 12 minutes per episode/per week, series about teenagers who leave high school each day to work a shift at the local mall's 'Subway' sandwich shop. Widdoes' resumé consists of other series such as 'According to Jim, The Bill Engvall Show, 2 1/2 Men, and Til Death'. While the premise of this show is simple, it is a fun watch, especially, I think, for the adolescent and teen trajectory. It's a bit corny, but it's really cute corny with adorable kids and a very funny mall cop on the beat.
There's just not enough out there to queue up for the kids to watch, or for us, as mentoring parents and friends, to advise the younger group to check out. Not long ago, in the Amazon movie chat forum, a young lady asked for suggestions regarding age appropriate movies and TV series. I was amazed at the variety and amount of answers she received. If she's asking, so are others wondering.
While I am not a fan of these short incremental weekly episodes, I am enjoying the series. Give it a try. At least you can't say you wasted much of you very precious time! Besides, I'll wager it'll put a smile on your face...
