    Holt is an excellent character.
    On MASH, they replaced a Glenn with a Captain Holt.

    Pretty sure this has been announced in another thread that the show is ending at the end of this season.

    Also just saw an article that they're working on a spinoff with Cheyenne and Bo. Not so sure what to think about that. I'd probably try watching just to see. They work well here because of the ensemble.

    I saw that, but the Bo character annoys me, so I'm not sure how long I'd watch. I think that could work though. The only other spinoff I could see is with Dina, who started out as the store security (morphed into more of an assist) manager. They could give her a job at a cyber security firm or with the NSA and go from there. That might actually be funny.

    I'll reserve judgment until I see it (if it ever sees the light of day). But I agree, Superstore works because of the ensemble. They're characters you can take in small doses. Any single one of them is probably too much. Especially Bo.

    But hey, that's why writers get the big bucks. :)

    I remember having similar thoughts when they announced they were going to do a series about Frasier Crane -- and also Joey. So... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    Really it's all about getting the right cast for the new series.

    And don't forget Young Sheldon. That was one series I was very skeptical about working, and I actually think it's BETTER than the original. So you just never know.

    There is a difference between not being sure they can pull it off and not liking a major character. I can’t see myself watching a show with Bo as a major character unless they completely remake him.

    Cheyenne I'd be willing to watch, but without Amy and Jonah, I don't know if that would be enough.

    Funny episode tonight. Didn't miss AF at all. Maybe an episode like tonight's works even better (heresy!) without her obsessive anxiety.

    Dominican?

    A good example of bringing current events into the story without feeling like it's forced.

    Agreed. It was really good ensemble work that touched on a sensitive issue well.

    I thought this show was cancelled. I'll record it but it'll be low on the long list of priorities. I have a Roamio that's nearly full and a Bolt that's getting there. I can't even clear out my Series 3 and Series 2.

    This is the final season, but we still have several episodes to go.

    Also agree, very well done, using the strengths of all the characters. I always liked the ensemble better than Amy anyway.

    Another funny episode last night. They're in a groove now, with some excellent episodes lately.

    I loved the people returning outrageous items made by subsidiaries of Zephra-like the dialysis machine - which was converted into -what was it- 300 bunches of grapes? :D Hilarious!

    And the thing with Sandra and her cat-made into a diamond-which was stolen by the gang members-then poor Cheyenne tried to take up a second collection-HARD PASS!

    I like Dina as manager. I think this will be interesting to watch moving forward. Still like this show, and I didn't really miss Amy either.

    I thought I would miss Amy more, but the writers did a great job through the years giving a voice to everyone, so the characters can just keep on without really a hiccup.
    I wish they would reconsider this being the last season. I am going to really miss it if it goes away.

    I'm not sure I would have agreed before, but the last few episodes have been A+ shows. I'd love to see it continue.

    I didn't realize how much the Amy/Jonah tension, and her general "management anxiety" (as written), was not adding to the show, but detracting. With the benefit of hindsight, I can see how much better it's become. Which is odd, as I love AF. I think the writers lost their way, and losing AF has given them some fresh stories.

    This show should of always been about the employees of the Superstore. When they started focusing on Amy as the major character for reason I don't know, but I assume it's because she is a bigger name actress than the others, it got old. Once she left and it focused on the employees, it has dramatically improved like most here have said. To bad the ratings aren't good enough to warrant a renewal.
