Suburgatory

ABC 2011

Single father George Altman is doing his best to raise his sixteen-year-old daughter Tessa in the big city. When he discovers a box of condoms in her bedroom, though, he decides the time has come to move her to a more wholesome and nurturing environment: the suburbs. But behind the beautiful homes and perfect lawns lurk the Franken-moms, spray tans, nose jobs, and Red Bull-guzzling teens who have nothing in common with Tessa. It’s a whole new world, one that makes George wonder if they haven’t jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire.

    Still hate the network for cancelling this show. Such a satirical masterpiece.

    Having spent the past few weeks rewatching most of this show, I can say with utmost confidence that Suburgatory is basically the millennial version of 30 Rock, only far less racist and far, far funnier. While it's clear to see why the final season was cut short (seriously, bringing in an adoption storyline when there was still so much unexplored territory with the Shays can be seen as an allegory for the entire show's attitude towards pre-existing storylines at that point), the first two still shine as tremendously silly yet ultimately grounded looks at suburban life in America, a setting that is more than ripe for satirisation. The entire cast is a parade of talent, from Cheryl Hines as overly-chirpy Dallas and Alan Tudyk as demented dentist Noah to Ana Gasteyer as insufferably perfect Sheila and Chris Parnell as perpetually cuckolded Fred, and the newer players, like Jane Levy as no-nonsense Tessa and Carly Chaikin as mean girl Dalia, more than prove themselves as talented comedic and dramatic performers alike. The comedy is brilliant, poking fun at the vapid nature of suburbanites and the overly cynical attitude stereotypically associated with individuals from Manhattan through the use of clever wordplay and a healthy amount of absurdism. In short, the first two seasons of Suburgatory were two of the best ever produced for television. Just...do yourself a favour and don't watch Season 3; you'll thank me later.

    Surprisingly this was a great show. Too bad they cancelled it. Sometimes I question the people that make these type of decisions. Anyway watch this show...

    Shame, got the ax! I enjoyed this show, not the greatest, mostly enjoyed Dalia's true to life, vapid, emptiness of her character. I'll miss it!

    A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
