I agree with much of what was said in FastPuppy's review.
I initially thought this show might be clever, quirky and refreshing, so my mother and I recorded the show and were excited to check it out. Boy, we couldn't be more disappointed.
The characters are extremely cliché and lacking in depth and originality. The writing for this show is very poor and the plot feels underdeveloped. I felt as though the story line had fast-forwarded many weeks within just the first pilot episode and that there was something missing in its development. I could not find the characters or the relationships that were developing between them (namely the main girl and guy of the show) very believable. Perhaps all of this is because of horrible writing. The writing is what can most effectively sell even the most cliché of story lines--more depth of character development and plot details, along with some more creativity could make a difference in making this show a little more than just another bad cliché.
To each their own, but I might also add that the humor on this show is painfully lame. Others have compared this show to The Office and Parks and Recreation. Although the type of humor between Superstore and The Office/Parks and Recreation may be similar, there is a clear difference in the quality of the latter, and I would much rather watch The Office/Parks and Recreation before I saw another episode of Superstore.
I have never heard of or seen any of the other actors on this show before except for Ferrera, and I definitely think she should pour her talents into a show with much more substance than this. I do not plan on wasting my time watching another episode of this show and I cannot see the rest of America doing so either. I do not see this show lasting very long, and if it does, it just goes to show how good TV and ideas are continually waning.
