When single dad George moves 16-year-old daughter Tessa out of their NYC apartment to a house in the suburbs, it’s because he wants a better place for her to spend her teen years. But all Tessa sees is the horror of over-manicured lawns and plastic Franken-moms, on “Suburgatory,”
The main character (Tessa Altman played by Jane Levy) is cute as can be! The interactions between her and her father (George Altman played by Jeremy Sisto) are hilarious! Totally reminds me of my house! Witty remarks are fantastic and they sure do have some! I was cracking up!
Now, I’m not sure if I’ll be letting Morgan watch it. I’m for sure going to be tuning in, but I want to see another episode before I decide if it is appropriate for my oldest daughter.
Tessa (Jane Levy) and George (Jeremy Sisto) have been on their own ever since Tessa’s Mom pulled a Kramer vs. Kramer before Tessa was potty trained. So far, George has done a pretty good job of raising Tessa without a maternal figure in their lives, but suddenly he’s feeling a little out of his league. So it’s goodbye New York City and hello suburbs. At first Tessa is horrified by the big-haired, fake-boobed mothers and their sugar-free Red Bull-chugging kids, but little by little, she and her dad begin finding a way to survive on the clean streets of the ‘burbs. Sure, the neighbors might smother you with love while their kids stare daggers at your back, but underneath all that plastic and caffeine they’re really not half bad.
Emily Kapnek (Hung) writes and executive produces this bitingly ironic single-camera comedy that combines Juno’s heightened reality with Father Knows Best’s heart. Tessa and her Dad may be out of their element, but at least they’ve got each other. When you descend into Suburgatory, it’s good to have backup.
You Know You’re From Suburgatory When…
1) Your dog’s haircut is more expensive than yours.
2) The drinking fountains offer sparkling or still.
3) The school cafeteria serves tuna tartar.
4) The majority of medical procedures are elective.
5) “Brunette” is a dirty word.
6) The top three industries are tanning, spandex and peroxide
One Not So Average Mama reader will win a $50 Visa Gift Card to go shopping at the mall! I suggest you not blast Gangster music on the way there or purchase shorts that will show off yer vah-jay-jay. If you watch the first episode you will know what I’m talking about…
This Giveaway will end on October 18th, 2011
