More than just a little innuendo

First, teens find it hilarious. The characters are likeable. But this parent finds the sexual humor over the top. It's the rare episode that makes it through without relying on some crude and base reference to sex. It's overt.... way past innuendo. No prude here...just being honest. I feel like I'm in a men's locker room when this show is on.

Definitely unsuitable for younger viewers

Waaay too many sex references, ...TV guide said 12+ - certainly not

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (17 ):
Kids say (80 ):

This funny character-driven series is full of great actors and clever writing. Superstore uses familiar sitcom beats, including meeting scenes attended by dead-eyed employees and presided over by an overly enthusiastic manager. What distinguishes the show is how it champions ordinary working-class Americans and skewers the absurdities of late capitalism.

The chemistry between will-they-or-won't-they leads played by Ferrara and Feldman generates smiles, and the supporting cast of misfits keeps viewers laughing out loud.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
