Prediction. Years later, I'll look up this tweet. Me saying that as #Superstore wraps up its final season, it will be fully appreciated a few years later a lot more than it is right now. It is something very different from the typical workplace comedy. It has a cause.
It is all about showcasing the struggles of retail workers, the backbone of the modern American lifestyle. But without making it seem preachy or whiny (unless you're a thin skinned Ben Shapiro type who treats every expression of inequality like a sin). Most diverse cast.
And I don't use that superlative casually. I'm pretty sure #Superstore is THE most diverse cast ever of any scripted show on US network TV. And they regularly tackled politics. Every issue from the Trump years was covered, but with relevance to the plot. Of Walmart type workers.
