In 10 Items or Less, John Lehr plays a failed business man who moves back to his hometown in order to take over Greens & Grains, the family grocery store. The show itself is part scripted and part improvisational. Like any workplace comedy, 10 Itemsí Greens & Grains has its share of dysfunctional employees, including the doofus sidekick, the Ren-Faire-obsessed customer service representative and the cashier who dreams of becoming a professional ice dancer.

Last seasonís episodes dealt with Leslie adjusting to being the new boss, trying to drum up business by exploiting a water stain that resembled Jesus and dealing with the company health insurance plan. The 5-episode season ended with an intense bagging competition between Green & Grains and their rivals over at Supervaluemart. This season begins with a failed robbery that leads to the G&G employees being held hostage in the store.


TBS.com has tons of 10 Items or less videos that you can check out to help you get acquainted with the show. I checked a few out, including the Season 2 sneak preview, and I wasnít very impressed. 10 Items seems to model itself after workplace comedies like the office, but all of the characters come off as dim-witted Michael Scotts. 10 Items or Less isnít nearly funny or edgy enough to separate itself from the other original cable sitcoms.
