Product Description

Manicured lawns. Cookie-cutter homes. Big lips. Little nose jobs. Synchronized sprinkler systems. A massive mall featuring the latest in animal print and food-court cuisine. Welcome to the suburbs, heaven for many. But for one teenage transplant from New York City, the suburbs represent her unique version of hell. Forget purgatory -- this is suburgatory.

With her motorcycle boots and oversized backpack, 16-year-old Tessa is perfectly at ease navigating the urban jungle she grew up in. So when her dad, George, a handsome architect in his late 30s, relocates her to greener pastures, Tessa goes into culture shock. What is this foreign land, where everyone is chauffeur-driven by their mothers in fully loaded SUVs? Tessa doesn't have either of those things -- she walks everywhere and she grew up with just her dad -- but now she is drawing lots of unwanted attention from overbearing suburban moms, like the blonde, bronze and buxom Dallas Royce. Dallas, mother of Dalia, Tessa's new nemesis, is intent on taking Tessa shopping, feeding her pot roast and snagging more face-time with Tessa's handsome father.

Will George be able to survive his own relocation plan? Will Tessa? Suburgatory is a family comedy that asks us not to judge our neighbors until we've gardened in their clogs. It is also about one man's struggle to answer the question that has plagued parents for all time: Is the safe choice really the right choice

From Amazon.co.uk

Like most successful comedies, there’s a straightforward and relatable premise at the core of Suburgatory. It sees Jeremy Sisto played George Altman, a single father living in New York City, who fears for his daughter, Tessa, played by Jane Levy. In search of a better life for her, George uproots Jane from the big city to a more suburban environment, which, it’s fair to say, doesn’t go down a treat.

Inevitably, the quiet new surroundings for George and Tessa are only surface-deep, and the seemingly idyllic neighbourhood has problems of its own. This gives the scope, then, for Suburgatory to poke fun at society stereotypes, but also serve up no shortage of good laughs. Furthermore, the decision to cast the always-excellent Alan Tudyk as George’s best friend, Noah, is an inspired one.

Season one of the show runs to 22 episodes, and the concept of Suburgatory comfortably supports that. Particular credit should go to the two leads, Sisto and Levy, who work excellently together. The boxset also finds room for quite a lot of deleted and extended scenes, and a gag reel too. It’s a good accompaniment for a light show, that’s nonetheless got just a bit more to it than it may first appear. --Jon Foster

The show (5/5)
`Suburgatory' was the big surprise in the 2011 tv season: well-written, witty and filled with surreal humour, the show is also capable to emotionally touch and move the audience.
The cast is great and, above all, Jane Levy as the lead character Tessa is remarkable. Her acting is absolutely natural, and she's now considered of the Hollywood rising stars.

The content (5/5)
All the 1st season episodes, with audio available in English and Spanish. Subtitles in English (also for hearing impaired), Spanish, Finnish and Swedish. Many special features: unaired scenes from most of the episodes, gag reel, and discussions with cast and creators.

The package (5/5)
The usual plastic case is protected by a light-carton slipcover with the same nice artwork. Cast photos and episodes informations are printed on the inside of the cover-case.

ps. I'm not English: I apologize for all kind of errors you were forced to read.

I am a fan of Jeremy Sisto and I enjoyed this without all that American breaks for advertising. Much easier to follow with no breaks .

I only saw some of this first season , but watched all the second season , and was surprised to find it was better than the second. Like a lot of U.S t.v there s lots of episodes and i found i wanted too see the next one right after the one i was on. Its lighthearted and fun and you'll find that you might change your mind over who is your favorite character . After watching it once i watched it again and found that i still didn't know the outcome after the first five minutes . The DVD has deleted scenes that sometime seem odd that they were left out .

I will buying the second season when its out because of E4 cutting bits out :( .

over all : get yourself a copy , a wet dull weekend, food, drink curl up and over indulge .

"Suburgatory" is better than current laugh-track sitcomes like "The Big Bang Theory" or "Two and a Half Men" (just give up Chuck Lorre, seriously) but not a patch on "Modern Family", "30 Rock", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" or "The Middle". Jane Levy as Tessa is amazing; granted she is in her early twenties and playing a teenager, but you need someone with a bit of experience for the role. Jeremy Sisto as George is also very good; the role is his best since he was Billy in "Six Feet Under". The supporting cast are probably the strongest of any series currently being made, including Alan Tudyk ("Firefly"), Cheryl Hines from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and Chris Parnell (Dr. Spaceman from "30 Rock" and the voice of Cyril in "Archer").
