During a Cloud 9 Halloween Episode (Season 2, Ep.7 ) A customer is seen walking thru the store wearing a 'Cloud' Costume, with a bloody mouth. This was in reference to the "Kyle the 'Cloud' 9 Cloud" and Cloud 9 Spokesman who was arrested when it was found out he was a serial killer who was also a cannibal. (Season 2 Ep.5). See more »
Just when you miss Park and Recreation, and the Office is long over - comes Superstore; another look into an exaggerated part of the American Culture. It's an obvious mock on Walmart / Target style stores (With coloring similar to Walmart), and over the top characters that we may grow to love (If the network doesn't cancel it next week that is). Hopefully this show will pull the much needed ratings to stay alive for a few seasons to gain a following.
First of all Ben Feldman does a great job at portraying the typical American male - who has a bit of fun and slacks off just as much as he goofs around.
America Ferrera is also doing a great job as the possible love interest of our main character.
Then there's an ensemble of other great characters - with very eccentric personalities. Yes this show is stereo typical, yes this show portrays the lower class - but as the show's first joke says, sometimes one doesn't need to judge based on class, rather just sit back and enjoy the show. I think that joke was put in there intentionally - or maybe I'm reading more into it than I should.
Regardless, I've been missing a good new sitcom to fit that style of eccentric humor that was in Parks and the Office. Modern Family is great, but it didn't really hit the same level of weird humor in their characters. I hope this one lasts a few seasons.
