    Back for a fourth season. One of my favorite shows. Loved the cold open, with Amy working in a diner.

    At least A-Hole and J-Bone aren't hiding their feelings for each other, even if they are hiding them from the others (which won't stay hidden long).

    I could have done without the 14 year old kid scenes though. Couldn't they have made him 18? Just seems a tad creepy to me.

    Favorite line (of many): When Dina asks if Glenn needs the corporate video on sexual harassment, he tells her it’s no longer applicable. “The old videos don’t apply anymore,” he says. “We are living in a brave new, #MeToo, #TimesUp, This Is Us-kind of world!”

    Great start to the season. And nice to see that A-hole and J-bone are still together.

    I still love this show too.

    Virtual Myrtle was ridiculous, in a mostly good way, right?

    This show just gets better and better. This episode had us rolling. Funniest sitcom episode of the year so far.

    I know it's October already but didn't realize the new seasons have started. I was happy to see this on my NPL, and it was another very funny episode. The opening with the greasy spoon in the rain, with Glenn doing a poor job disguising himself and giving Amy $20 tips on $2 coffee he doesn't drink was great on many levels. Virtual Myrtle is creepily fun.

    She put chocolate syrup in his coffee. Is that really a thing people do?

    This show is so underrated. It's a great example of a show that can be ironic, smart and funny and not have to be dark and edgy.

    Starbucks business model is to make lousy bitter coffee, charge about 50x what it costs them a cup to make, make coffee seem like some fancy bar drink, and appeal to those who love anything that is "trendy". The ONLY coffee drink that I think they make better than anyone else, is their Frappacinios. For some reason, nobody seems to have been able to make that type of drink as well (either two watery, to thick or whatever). But since they are just horribly bad for you, I only get one of these a couple of times a year.

    I guess it depends on your reason for not liking it. I don't think the tenor or tone of the series is any different. We know the characters better which helps. I liked it from the beginning and it's only gotten better.

    That's funny.. I started the first thread about this show here. I think this show is funny, and underrated.. but I *do* think it's LARGELY a "typical sitcom". In other words, I think this is a well done "typical sitcom", but don't really think it's all that "smart". Most of the characters are fairly one dimensional stereotypes.

    I guess I mostly just think this is higher than average, but it's not way out there (like the show that I have the next tab in my browser to read, "The Good Place").


    Oh yeah, and did the dumb girl break up with her boyfriend? Since he's on another (much worse) show now, "I Feel Bad". (I like the main actress on that show though.)

    I do agree it's a typical sitcom, but I also think it's a lot smarter than it lets on. Sure the characters are sort of typical, but there is a lot little shots at corporate America, at life working in retail, at some of our morals, and yes, it's very well written. Like I said, it's proof that you don't need to be dark and edgy and completely sarcastic about everything in order to be funny.

    imdb only shows him being in 9 episodes of Superstore, so he's far from a regular. He was one of the main characters in Son or Zorn, while it was running at the same time as Superstore, so he's capable of doing other things.

    I totally didn't remember that he was the kid in Son of Zorn.. That show is one I recorded all of, and IIRC is still on Hulu.. and I keep meaning to get back to it since it was not very good but kind of wacky (in a good way)..
