Suburgatory: Season 1 (2011 - 2012)



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 (34) | Top Critics (18)

A mickey-take of American suburbia that doesn't even have the courage of its convictions? Let's call it garbagatory. See what I've done there?

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Sep 28, 2011 | Full Review…

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.

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

Suburgatory is a painfully slow-paced series that attempts to squeeze laughter out of a setting that's not exactly all that humorous.

Feb 7, 2019 | Full Review…

The most stylish series since Pushing Daisies, this sitcom starts with a flawed joke...But the cast is great, especially Cheryl a mall mom whose sunniness requires a high SPF.

Feb 7, 2019 | Full Review…

A large part of the charm of Suburgatory rests on the winning relationship between Tessa and George. There's real feeling there, but also an edge.

Feb 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Suburgatory is just good fun, offering up plenty of laughs and bringing a fresh dynamic to ABC's family comedies.
