Fun light hearted comedy
Verified purchase
I like action, sci-fi, and scary movies, but sometime you’ve just had a rougher day and all you want to do it laugh. This series is perfect for such a bad day. The humor is obvious, but well delivered. Thank you to the creators and actors for bringing a smile to my face on the tough days.

"Superior" Show!
Verified purchase
"Superior Donuts" is a "Superior" show! It's one of my favorite sitcoms I've seen in a long time. It's on up there with "Cheers" and "Will & Grace" too. Thank you to all the cast and crew for bringing this excellent show to us. :o)

Why is this a purchase?
Verified purchase
We watch this show on our regular channels. We DO have Amazon Prime tv, but certainly don't think that we are paying for this show. If we are billed for it then something funny is going on.
