Superstore: Season 1 (2015 - 2016)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Superstore's talented cast and obvious potential are slightly overshadowed by a tonally jumbled presentation and thin, formulaic writing.

Tv Season Info

"Superstore" is a humorous look at what goes on behind the scenes of a typical big-box megastore. With a smart, dependable store supervisor named Amy (America Ferrera), an aggressive, often inappropriate assistant manager named Dina (Lauren Ash), a pregnant, clueless teenager named Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom), and a variety of other personalities, the store's employees have become like a dysfunctional family. When an optimistic, dreamer named Jonah (Ben Feldman) is hired in the first season, the group dynamic begins to shift in unexpected ways. Also starring Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, and Mark McKinney, with guest stars including Dan Bucatinsky and Eliza Coupe.

Critic Reviews for Superstore Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (17)

Like the type of operation it represents, Superstore has a little bit of everything, not all of it good, but there are gems to be had in a few departments.

Golden Globe winner America Ferrera is as charming as ever as the overly dedicated assistant manager who tries to rein in a crew that's supposedly too wacky, but none are really allowed to let their freak flags fly.

Not good enough in the first two episodes. With a cast this outstanding, here's hoping for improvement by January, and beyond.

A playful cross between The Office and Family Guy.

Nov 30, 2015 | Full Review…

For the most part it's about as much fun as camping out overnight in a freezing ice storm to snare a Black Friday discount on a Darth Vader toaster. Although some people really do seem to get into that.

And yet! Superstore is delightful! Good, even, in its way! The show is, despite and very much because of its shortcomings, extremely successful as a piece of pop-cultural confectionery.

Jan 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Despite a cast that includes Mark McKinney it stumbles on crudeplfot lines and dumb visual gags.

Nov 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Acted with a certain amount of charm and riddled with lame jokes, Superstore seems like the kind of sitcom NBC might have programmed in the mid-1990s, somewhere between Boston Common and The Single Guy.

Nov 30, 2015 | Full Review…

I'm buying what Superstore's selling.

Nov 30, 2015 | Full Review…

It's exploitation of humorous (and sometimes sad) retail tropes - including this week's plot device of a sales contest that leads to a pizza party - continues to work wonders.

Jan 26, 2016 | Full Review…

It's depressing to see actors this good wasted on material that strains for the heights of better workplace comedies (itself hardly a fresh genre), yet reaches only cliched supposed-to-be-funny levels.

Dec 7, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The first four episodes are alternately warm and witty, but what's most exciting about Superstore is its potential for unabashed weirdness somewhere down the line.

    I have a weird Office flashback - not that I'm calling this garbage Office rip-off...

    No. Just no. (I was under the impression that this was a new show and I suffered through it to get to something else. It was a terrible viewing experience. I gave it one star because 'zero' wasn't an option.)

    Terrible acting, absolutely not funny at all. Awful just awful.
  • May 31, 2019
    10 or more seasons would be great

    Sheila is an awesome character who stands out in a great cast. This show is funny and reminds me of a mixture of "Waiting" and "Employee of the Month". It also feels very realistic compared to other sitcoms.

    A good enough show but no that great yet. It is funny at times but not as funny as I hoped. The cast gave funny and fantastic performances especially America Ferrera, Lauren Ash, Ben Feldman, Colton Dunn, Mark McKinney, Nichole Bloom, and Nico Santos.

    loved it. great to watch it with family, friends and kids 4.5/5

    Superstore s.1 has so much humor at well timed moments and great writing, that it feels like you mixed the office and parks and rec together to have a baby.

    I almost NEVER laugh out loud at any comedy. But this show is hilarious!!! I can't get enough. I even love the heels because they all have an obvious soft spot. Very good comedy and the characters are nuts- very well done and surprisingly believable.
