Critic Consensus: Suburban satiries are nothing new, but Suburgatory offers enough abrasive wit and left-field jokes to keep it fresh.

Critic Reviews for Suburgatory: Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (15)

Suburgatory falls flat -- a flatness that will be accentuated by the smart suburban comedies that bookend it.

Suburgatory, which like its Wednesday night running mates is without a laugh track, has some nice touches in its passably amusing opening episode. It also joins the likes of 2 Broke Girls, Whitney and Free Agents in its zeal to be sexplicit.

A funny fantasyland in a hilarious family fish-out-of-water tale

What Surburgatory lacks in novelty, it compensates for with a steady stream of gags, splashes of nuance (and nuance's vivid opposite), the comedic flow of Ana Gasteyer and Chris Parnell as the Altmans' neighbors, and an undercurrent of sweetness.

I love the suburban satire, which is old territory made fresh again.

September 28, 2011 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

A show that started off with a few problems but ironed them out to become one of the funnier shows on TV this spring.
