Primetime Picks… 10/10/19

On last week’s episode of Superstore, Mateo’s lawyer was at Cloud 9 collecting testimonials for Mateo’s bond hearing, but most of the statements about how wild and fun he could be would probably do him more harm than good. So Amy tried to get the co-workers to embellish, making Mateo sound more kind and generous, but this also backfired. Eventually, she and Cheyenne tracked down Jeff, and used and old photo to manipulate his emotions and get him to agree to making a statement about how he heard the company execs illegally ordering the ICE raid. Meanwhile, Sandra was convinced that Dina was throwing her a bachelorette party, despite the fact that she kept adamantly denying it since it wasn’t part of her official Maid of Honor job responsibilities as defined on the internet. Jonah felt bad, and enlisted Garrett’s help in throwing a party. However, once Dina found out, she was upset, accused them of trying to make her look bad, and reluctantly agreed to throw the party…but having Sandra be responsible for most of her own party. At the same time, Jerry awkwardly asked Garrett to be his Best Man, even though the two hardly knew one another. When it came time for the party, Sandra was once again overshadowed—her party had been re-purposed into a celebration of the fact that Mateo had been released on bond.

Last week, there were once again stirrings of unionization, and with Jeff preparing a statement about the ICE raid, it looks like we are gearing up for an employee mutiny this season. The show does a great job of mixing in these more serious topics while also keeping things funny. I have my doubts that Sandra will ever actually get her wedding day, but I’m hoping that something finally works out for her!

In tonight’s episode, “Forced Hire”, when Amy hires Dina’s nemesis Colleen, Dina blackmails Garrett into making Colleen’s life a living hell; Jonah is forced to befriend Marcus to unionize the warehouse guys.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, A Million Little Things, Young Sheldon, The Unicorn, Carol’s Second Act, Evil, Perfect Harmony, The Good Place, and Chrisley Knows Best.
