  1. "Items" is like NBC's "The Office" on laughing gas - the same kind of poker-faced dysfunction in a crushingly ordinary setting, but faster and funnier.
  2. 10 Items or Less is a quick hit of inanity, as close to The Office as anything else.

    It's as much miss as hit. [1 Dec 2006, p.75]
  4. While you have to give them credit for trying something at least a little different, the creators and cast try way too hard to pull laughs out of the situation and the show comes off as forced and unbelievable.

    It's partially improvised, which comes off looking like they're having more fun than we are.

    The improvisations are sometimes so forced that I swear you can actually see the actors thinking about what to say next.
  7. 10
    Yet another doomed and dreadful attempt to bring improv comedy to television.

    I think it's funny. Reminds me of Arrested Development... which never should have left the air. Finally, something worth watching.

    The series isn't too bad. It has a touch of Arrested Development in it, but all contained within a food mart.

    Obviously a play off the success of "The Office," "10 Items or Less" fails in every way. The delivery is sloppy, the acting is deplorable, Obviously a play off the success of "The Office," "10 Items or Less" fails in every way. The delivery is sloppy, the acting is deplorable, and all in all, it's too over the top. It's high time TBS realize that they're not very funny at all. Expand

    I watched an entire episode, to be able to say that I did. Wow. No laughing, no chuckles, not really even a smile. I'm surprised anyone I watched an entire episode, to be able to say that I did. Wow. No laughing, no chuckles, not really even a smile. I'm surprised anyone could compare it to The Office, which is hilarious. This show is not. It's not even just odd humor, it's just no humor.
