Every week, the cast and crew of NBC’s megastore-comedy, Superstore, are taking EW readers behind the scenes of each episode. This week, actor Colton Dunn, who plays Garrett, clues us in on what really went down in the sixth episode of season two, “Employee Theft.”
Hello readers. This is my recap of our Halloween episode, written by Karey Dornetto, who was a writer and producer on Portlandia.
Fun fact, she beat me out for a WGA award in 2011 when I wrote for Key and Peele. Not mad about it. Portlandia is a good show.
Anyway, let’s do this recap. So, it’s Halloween at Cloud 9, and everyone is in costume. I’m dressed as 007 and Glenn is a hot dog.
Can I just say that Key and Peele was an awesome show? I would argue that it was technically the best sketch show ever. But I’m biased. I understand that. I’m very happy for Portlandia‘s WGA award win in 2011. And hey, K&P was nominated for three Emmys in writing, so that’s something.
Back to the recap. Some fruit goes missing, and Dina, who’s dressed as a sexy cop, tries to solve the mystery. Meanwhile, Mateo is dressed as a cowboy and has to lose weight for a hot date.
Three nominations for writing and not one win! The last time we lost to Last Week with John Oliver. It’s not even a sketch show! That’s like The Real Housewives of Orange County going up against 60 Minutes. But hey, who cares, right?
I CARE! John Oliver is not even American! Slow down Colton, that’s not fair. He’s very talented and his staff does great work. At the end of the day, Key and Peele did win a couple Emmys. Not for writing, but a win is a win. And all the writers went on to do other awesome shows. Hey, I’m on a hit comedy, so I got no problems… I also got no statues.
Anyway, Jonah and Cheyenne try to find common ground through gossip, Amy and Glenn check out another Cloud 9, and Garrett gets “busted” by Dina. The Emmys are rigged.
Superstore airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
