Trivia

James and Maya were written out of the series after season one, with Sofia essentially replacing Maya. James was said to have been transferred to another department, and no explanation was given for Maya's absence, though it can be presumed she moved on after completing her Ph D studies and research at the shop.

What do you get when you mix Taxi with Married With Children? You get a Superior Donut. Give it a try and you will love the taste!
2 February 2017 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

Mmmmmmmmm, a coffee shop experience with a neighborhood of characters who all enjoy the taste and retro ambiance of Superior Donuts. I am writing this review after just watching the pilot episode and with the wide variety of interesting characters the show has a lot to work with for some good comedy. Old Arthur hires new and cool Franco and voila' we have a new recipe that works!

Arthur Przybyszewski (Judd Hirsch) has owned the same donut shop Superior Donuts for 47 years and although his neighborhood is always changing, his donut shop has not changed one bit in decades. Of course all cops like donuts and this neighborhood's cops Randy Deluca (Katy Sagal)and James Jordan (Darien Sills-Evans) are steady customers of Arthur's. Randy has been enjoying Superior Donuts since she was just a little girl while first visiting Superior Donuts with her father for donuts. We also have the donut shops self-proclaimed black Jesus savior Franco Wicks (Jermaine Fowler) who is trying to convince the shops owner Arthur that he needs to consider new ways of encouraging a whole bunch of new customers in to the shop.

Fawz (Maz Jobrani), Maya (Anna Baryshnikov), Carl "Tush" Tushinski (David Koechner) and Brad (Stephen Guarino) complete the dirty dozen of first customers that like to hang out at Arthur's shop for the nostalgia and of course for the donuts. Since Arthur has been able to hold on against the new Starbucks that moved in across the street I have confidence that the eclectic ensemble of new characters that hang out at Superior Donuts will keep us entertained.

The first episode appealed to Mrs. Shullivan and I. We look forward to some more fresh donuts coming in to our home each week and I give the pilot a 10 out of 10 for providing wholesome comedy for families to watch together.
