‘Superstore’ 6×01 Review: “Essential”

We were so happy to see that Superstore is back! But we will admit that we were a little nervous to see how they would play out the Coronavirus pandemic. A lot of shows have attempted it lately and not all of them have been well received. Mostly because we are really looking for an escape from reality and it’s can be hard to see that reality played out in front of us. But scripted television has been deeply affected by it and it’s understandable that they would want to include it. Luckily, Superstore found an amazing way to get us laughing about it. So keep reading for our Superstore 6×01 review for our thoughts!

Amy and Jonah

Let’s deal with the elephant in the room. We all know that America Ferrera is leaving the show and we aren’t happy about it. But we wish her all the luck in the future. Even if watching her and Jonah break up is going to also break us. Though we do have to admit that we are glad Ben Feldman isn’t leaving us. The premiere didn’t focus too much on the breakup as it was focused more on social events. But when we saw them discuss going to California knowing it was going to end hurt.

Impending doom was definitely felt as we saw Amy’s face when she was hugging Jonah. These two have had such an amazing journey and we’re going to be so sad seeing them come to an end. Even if they made the decision to stay together and attempt long-distance, we have a feeling it wouldn’t work out. The odds would certainly be against them. But if America said she would be willing to guest star now and then, maybe we would be a little more on board with that. Okay, we would be completely on board with that because we love this ship.

Essential Employees

Amidst the comedy of watching our crew deal with COVID, we have to take a moment and give a shout out to all the essential employees out there. Sure, this is a funny approach to a serious topic, but it’s also light being shed on actual essential workers that have been operating the front lines. On top of emergency and medical personnel, grocery store employees have been dealing with all of our needs. They’ve also dealt with a lot of crazy things like fighting over toilet paper and customers blaming them when certain items are out of stock. So, thank you to every single essential worker out there.

Some light was also shed on how hard it was to get employees the necessary equipment to remain safe. While you would think this shouldn’t be an issue to get employees masks and gloves, (we agree) it was, unfortunately, a real issue. But we are lucky that we get to see Amy being a kickass manager. Since she got the position, Amy has always done her best for her employees. It’s no wonder she’s moving up the ladder and becoming even more of a leader. We’re so proud and so sad at the same time.

Every Employee for Themselves

It was absolutely hilarious to see Cheyenne and Sandra attempting to hoard items for themselves. If anyone was going to worry about supplies, we agree it would be those two. Just like it really wasn’t surprising to us that Marcus was the employee that got Coronavirus. Oh, Marcus. But as things go at Cloud 9, Sandra and Cheyenne weren’t able to keep their supply hoarding a secret for very long. Which ended with the other employees hoarding items for themselves as well. It was stressful all around and Glenn was definitely feeling the pressure. But he and Dina were the perfect example of a dynamic duo as she helped him through it. We love them!
