Huge thanks for “Checkout” – short episodes and lots of laughs.
Last night after watching the feature film “Howl” (see my separate post), I needed something light an short. I watched the trailer for the Israeli TV series “Checkout” and – upon seeing the episodes are short (22 minutes) I watched the first one. And boy did I laugh! It’s obviously based on the BBC (and later US) TV series “The Office” since it’s a mockumentary but instead of a factory it takes place in a Supermarket in Israel. Each character is exaggerated (the security guy is usually asleep and arrives AFTER any incident is resolved) but – based on the first episode I’m already a fan!
The show which Chaiflicks calls “Israel’s #1 Smash Hit comedy” started in 2018 and finished three seasons (one of 21 eps and two of 20 eps) . Chaiflicks is “doling” them out with one every Thursday. Right now you can binge the first 6 episodes. I hope they change their mind and release at least 3 eps each week. By my count, at the rate of ONE per week, it will be 55 weeks (that’s December 10, 2022!)
Anyway, each ep stands on its own but I think you’ll want to binge the ones up there now
