Suburgatory

sub1

Suburgatory is not only an ABC sitcom, it’s a portmanteau.

No, not the piece of luggage, when you put two words together and make a new word.

More like: Sitcom, fanzine, Mexicali, cyberpunk, tofurkey, dramedy, freeware, squiggle, romcom, Californication, hasbian, napalm, bromance, chork, frenemy…you get the point.

The series itself? A dreadfully amusing depending on the mood you’re in light sitcom about a single Dad who moves his teenage daughter out to the suburbs to get away from New York. A lot of adjusting is required for their new situation.

The regular and guest cast really wows this one, including Jeremy Sisto, Jane Levy, Carly Chaikin, Allie Grant, Cheryl Hines, Ana Gasteyer, Chris Parnell, Alan Tudyk, Rex Lee, Parker Young, Maestro Harrell,Gillian Vigman, Bunnie Rivera, Malin Åkerman, Miriam Flynn, Arden Myrin, Jay Mohr, Alicia Silverstone, and a guest star from one of my fav episodes this year, I’m Just Not That Into Me who suddenly become very famous after last night’s season finale of The Walking Dead, Andrew J. West. wd67Yes, Gareth from Terminus insub3 the S4 finale, ‘A’ and since he doesn’t appear in the graphic novels myself and other fans have to speculate on who he is. I think he’s Negan, or a redo of Chris or even Alexander or maybe a combo. Either way, despite being on many other shows, he made a big impression last night with his calm manner, and yes, the nicknames.

Based on the droll book, Suburgatory: Twisted Tales from Darkest Suburbia, by former CNN Senior Producer Linda Keenan this series may not be for everyone. It can get a tad spoofy and absurd, but that’s part of it’s charm.

Is it getting a 4th season? Don’t know, but I hope so.
