    Nice ending.

    A few throw backs to the pilot like the kid on the training potty and the ceiling of stars.

    Superstore stayed true to itself and created a full world in a sitcom. Good job. Never thought it would be more than a light weight short term show when it started. Now I am going to miss it.

    "Cloud Nine is now closed" :(:(

    Sweet wrap-up. They did a good job bringing everything to a close. Especially since I read in an article today that they were given very little advance notice that the show wasn't being renewed. Great ensemble cast.

    I went back and looked at the first Superstore thread. Very few positive posts at first. Then as time went by, the show started growing on people. By the time it was renewed, which was a surprise to almost everyone, the response were more like "good news, this show has really become fun to watch".

    I only started watching in November and caught up pretty quickly as I really liked it and would watch 2-3 eps each night. Can’t remember why I passed when it first started. I think they handled the pandemic better than any other show. Definitely a show I’ll rewatch at some point.

    I liked when Jonah referenced working at an ad agency. This was a great show to me because I’m a retail store manager.
    So many of the customer interstitial scenes had me just laughing and nodding in agreement.

    Is a spin-off with Glenn Cheyenne and Mateo confirmed?

    That was a wonderful finale. Amy being there was an incentive to watch, but I found I didn't dislike the other characters as much as I thought I would. I'd even be open to Glenn, Cheyenne and Bo in the hardware store. Oh, right, Mateo would be there. Well, he didn't seem so bad.

    When it was suggested they make sure only the most qualified employees were there when the store was being evaluated, that was it. I didn't think anyone would be left, and there would be no reason to keep the store open.

    I really liked the job interviews.

    And all those scenes toward the end without audio.

    What exactly was the purpose of the brief scenes when customers did weird stuff and there were no employees around?

    TVLINE | It’s been a few months since it was first announced that NBC was developing Bo & Cheyenne. Any update on the potential spinoff?
    GREEN | It’s still in the early stages of development. That’s probably all we can really say… We’re not directly involved.
    MILLER | They’re working on a script, is all we know.
    {Green & Miller were the showrunners of Superstore}


    They're funny. Weird funny.

    On some episodes, they were the funniest stuff.

    I wonder how many were taken from real life. You know weird stuff has to happen in big stores.

    One that struck home with me happened in one recent episode. When they had the big flood, and the employee was standing ankle deep in water all around him and he was trying to figure out where to put the "caution wet floor" sign. That had me rolling because I'd seen something like that in a store once.

    *SPOILERS from the Finale*

    I thought so too. It was predictable in that they would close the store as the closing of the series. I like how they transitioned it to a warehouse distribution center. I'm glad they found places to put everyone that made sense, with a core group working at the family hardware store, another group at the warehouse. Of course they had to go the cliche route and put Jonah and Amy back together (though I might have gone in a different direction, I never saw them as that great a couple), but I think that is what people wanted to see. And they did the same with Garret and Dina, which I liked better as a couple. But overall, the show ended as it should have, no surprising crazy twists. I liked Mateo kissing up to Carol to try and get the Assistant job, and she played him finally admitting she didn't have all that much money from the settlement. Good stuff.

    No one is going to mention the foot? I looked at the closing scene with the BBQ and didn't see Elias there, wonder if he got caught.

    Yeah before the finale I was thinking no big deal. The show was going downhill anyway.

    After the finale I felt that it would be missed.

    I didn't get the foot thing at all.

    What I keep forgetting that I want to do is find the show and watch S01. I didn't find the show until S02 began, so I've always been curious about S01. It's probably one of very few shows I've started w/o seeing it from the beginning. I'm weird about that. But it drew me in, anyway.

    I think they did a good job with the series finale.

    NBC passes on Superstore spinoff Bo & Cheyenne - PRIMETIMER

    Superstore Spinoff Bo & Cheyenne Not Moving Forward at NBC


    The proposed Superstore offshoot is DOA: Bo & Cheyenne has been passed over by NBC, a source confirms to TVLine.

    As previously reported, Superstore co-executive producers Bridget Kyle and Vicky Luu were tapped to write a pilot script in December, which would have centered on the titular couple as they “balance their big dreams with the harsh realities of being a blue-collar family in America.” A script was written, but NBC decided against moving forward.

    “Unfortunately, yesterday NBC notified us that they’re not going forward with the Superstore spinoff,” Kyle told Cleveland.com. “So, it will just have to live on in our hearts and on my hard drive.”
