This British situation comedy is set in a discount supermarket and follows the antics of the store's staff and customers. It debuted on Sky 1 in August 2011, and its sixth season began airing in November 2016. The series stars Jason Watkins, Chanel Cresswell, Carl Rice, Beverly Rudd, and Rita May. The first five seasons of the series, including its annual Christmas special episode, are available on DVD. While the series has proven popular, it gets generally mediocre reviews from critics, who tend to find it a bit too broad and obvious.
