A Surprisingly Funny New Comedy Show
November 21, 2011 1 Comment
Suburgatory is a new comedy show that premiered a few weeks ago. It’s surprisingly light and fun to watch, and the episodes seem to fly by so fast. It’s about a father and daughter family who relocate from manhattan to the suburbs, and the show follows their comedic interactions with the residents of suburbia:
Single father George 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.
Don’t get too excited and think this is like the best comedy show to come out this year or something. It’s not. It’s just something nice and light and very fun to watch.
I would definitely say it’s one of the funniest (family) comedies this year, but that’s mostly because it doesn’t really have any competition. Most shows suck this year.
With the lately announced semi-canellation of both Community and Cougar Town, we might need something to pass our time with. And Suburgatory does that in a very good way.
