Editorial Reviews

Manicured lawns. Cookie-cutter homes. Big lips. Little nose jobs. Synchronized sprinkler systems that erupt at the exact same time. A massive mall, the mecca for mass-consumerism and soggy food-court cuisine. Welcome to the suburbs, heaven for many. But for one teenage transplant from New York City, the suburbs represent her unique version of hell. Forget purgatory -- this is Suburgatory. Suburgatory is a family comedy that asks us not to judge our neighbors until we've gardened in their clogs. It is also about one man's struggle to answer the question that has plagued parents for all time: Is the safe choice really the right choice?

Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!
I loved this show! The humor in it is odd and I found it refreshing as it kept me laughing the entire season. Definitely worth checking out!

I started watching this show because Alan Tudyk talked about wearing a speedo in it. Unfortunately, that's in the second season, but the show is good enough to carry you to that... Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Stupid and boring
Couldn't even finish one episode. It was outrageous without being funny. I enjoyed Chevy Chase in his crazy family movies, but this show had none of the humor to save it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show, especially for Network TV
Suburgatory was kind of a sleeper that snuck up on me. I have friends that watch Modern Family religiously, and they didn't even know what Suburgatory was. Read more
