When ABC positioned its new sitcom "Suburgatory" between the wildly underrated "The Middle" and the consistently charming "Modern Family," it had a cushy slot between two of my favorite shows on TV. But I was a bit skeptical. I have liked star Jeremy Sisto for years, but never envisioned him headlining a weekly comedy. And the idea of city folk making fun of the suburbs has been a topic of humor for decades. As I tuned in for the premiere, the show scored a number of easy laughs--maybe too easy. Truthfully, the program felt dated. I felt like the same sitcom with the same jokes could have been on in the eighties or the nineties. That's how familiar the suburban satire premise appeared. But as the season progressed, I found myself liking the show more and more as it found an increasingly unique voice. Through witty scripts, eccentric plot lines, and especially a deft comic ensemble of actors--"Suburgatory" fully came into its own. It may not qualify as TV's best sitcom, but it is solidly entertaining and appealing.

The basic set-up involves Sisto bringing his daughter (Jane Levy) into the clean living suburbs from their existence in New York City. Of course, they both love the city but Sisto thinks this is the best option for raising his teenaged girl. Levy, very Emma Stone-esque, is perfect as the wizened yet cynical protagonist. She and Sisto view their new home as a Wonderland of eccentricity and early episodes play largely off this fish-out-of-water concept. Both smart and funny, Levy brings a contemporary edge that helps to buoy the more well-worn elements of the initial storylines. As they get to know their neighbors, we do as well. And this is where the show really starts to shine as an ensemble piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purgatory in Suburbia... April 28, 2012
Format:DVD
"Suburgatory" is a new (2011-2012) ABC television comedy series, starring Jane Levy as Tessa Altman, cool and savvy New York City high school student, summarily transplanted to the suburbs by her architect father George (Jeremy Sisto) after he discovers a box of condoms in her room. Tessa finds herself hilariously out of step with her new classmates, and must scramble to find her own niche. Some of the best comedy of the show comes from Tessa's sarcastic voice-over commentary on her new life.

The storylines typically proceed on two tracks, with Tessa finding new ways to prod and poke her overbearing classmates, and sometimes just being a typical teenager. Her single (and eligible) father must also navigate a new environment of stuffy country clubs, militant PTA's, and pushy neighborhood watch organizations. He is guided by old college friend and dentist Noah Werner (Alan Tudyk), who attempts to interpret the new rules for George. George also gets some help from good-hearted but over-the-top female neighbor Dallas Royce (Cheryl Hines), who goes out of her way to help Tessa adjust; she may also have an agenda planned for George as well. Alicia Silverstone makes a late-season appearence as a surrogate mother for Noah and his wife, and a possible love interest for George (and, of course, an inside joke for those who saw the movie "Clueless"). The interaction between Tessa and George is sometimes the best part of the show, as they take turns being the adult in their rather unique father-daughter relationship.

The comedy is consistently good, and the show is willing to pursue its humor over, around, and through any number of stereotypes associated with American suburbia. "Suburgatory" has already been renewed for a second season, and is highly recommended to fans of its distinctive brand of humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE? July 31, 2013
Format:DVD
I had no idea this show even existed until Jane Levy was cast in the update of the "Evil Dead" movie. Out of curiosity as to who Jane Levy was, I rented disk 1 of season 1 and immediately fell in love with it for reasons I probably can't list, but I'm gonna try.

I don't think I'm the typical target audience for a show like "Suburgatory", but maybe I am; who knows? I didn't think I was the target audience for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" either before I got hooked on that show and realized that the target audience was not teenage girls, but EVERYBODY. The same goes for "Suburgatory". You would assume that the target audience is teenage girls, but you would be sadly mistaken. The target audience is anybody with a heart and/or a sense of humor.

The show is about a single father, George Altman, who moves he and his daughter, Tessa Altman, from the inner city to a suburb, against the daughters will. Tessa is a product of the city and much about her life is confusing, fast and overwhelming. She doesn't know her mother and she is trying to find a place to fit in with a rebellious outer-shell and a vulnerable inner-shell.

The show is gifted with solid writing and creative comedy, but most importantly Jane Levy sells the character of Tessa and you can't help but feel invested in every conflicting situation she encounters. She's adorable, twisted, tougher than she appears, more vulnerable than she appears, confused and dealing with life as it comes; something we can all relate to.

Bottom line, it's a funny quirky show with real emotions and real dilemma's camouflaged by an overall giddiness.

It is nice and funny to start (in fact the best episode is likely the pilot). Then we have as Emily Kapenek (the writer) puts it shared experiences between George and Tessa. Read more
