This comedy series presents a series of tasks performed by former New York City councilor Garrett Shah. Garrett is in a battle with reality when he is invited by six new immigrants. It seems that immigrants need his help as they try to find the American dream and their dream they aspire to.
The pilot has some of the loose rhythm of "Parks and Recreation" but not much of the cleverness. Garrett's shallowness is shallowly drawn, and the study group he reluctantly takes on feels like a holding cell of immigrant clichés.
If Sunnyside leans into spontaneity and surprises-just as Community quickly turned away from Britta and Jeff to focus on the most chemistry-laden couple on the show, Troy and Abed-then it could evolve into a show worth sticking with.
Just like most shows produced by Schur, there are rapid-fire jokes and throwaway lines that are often funnier than the jokes, but the characters giving them are given an opportunity to not just be joke machines but full-formed characters.
