Season 1, Episode 11 – This week was one of the better episodes of Superior Donuts. It wasn’t ambitious or hilarious, but it was entertaining. Franco takes a job as Fawz’s assistant in order to make some extra cash.
Season 1, Episode 8 – Franco gets injured on the job, but can’t afford to see a doctor. There’s some funny moments, but the show’s reliance on low-brow humor and insistence on going for the most obvious joke possible makes it a very disposable half-hour.
Season 1, Episode 5 – This week’s episode has good intentions, as the show addresses racism and xenophobia once Fawz’s dry-cleaners is vandalized with an anti-Arab message, but is hindered by lazy jokes and inconsistent characterization.
Season 1, Episode 3 – Superior Donuts tries to teach a lesson this week, but ends up delivering its weakest episode so far. Arthur buys a gun to protect himself, prompting Franco to teach him that guns are bad. It’s an obvious message and the jokes aren’t any better.
Season 1, Episode 2 – Franco invents a new donut flavor that has hipsters lining out the door, making Arthur question whether or not he can keep up in a changing world. It’s funny enough, but the show’s reliance on stereotypes is already wearing thin.
Season 1, Episode 1 – CBS’s new sitcom, centering on a millennial artist (Jermaine Fowler) who teams up with an aging donut shop owner (Judd Hirsch) to help keep his business current in a gentrifying neighborhood, premiered tonight, with an uneven but promising episode.
