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.

.

A cute funny series with lovely scenery and good acting but more suited, in my opinion, to teens and twenties.

I purchased because I very much like watching Jeremy Sisto. Great in Law&Order but particularly in the U.S. series 'KIDNAPPED' which was SO exciting and addictive (and like others I can't understand why it wasn't recommissioned). If you haven't seen it then I recommend you purchase it and watch whilst your kids are viewing 'Suurgatory in another room. Win Win!

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").

I saw this on tv. I loved the cast, all the characters were interesting and I cared enough about the plots to watch pritty much ever episode.
There is but one problem-I cannot honestly quote one joke or remember one set piece which made me laugh. Its just gentle, but nothing on big bang or 30 rock.
Best bit-Chris Parnell.

I am not totally sure if I have liked this series. I watched it initially attracted by Alan Tudyk as his appearances on TV seem fairly few and far apart so it was nice to see a series in which he was a regular. This is a review of the series rather than the specific DVD release as it's not out on dvd at the point of writing.

Suburgatory is basically about a guy called George (Jeremy Sisto) who moves his 15yr old daughter Tessa (Jane Levy) from New York city out to the the very strange suburb of Chatswin looking for a better life for her. Chatswin is a crazy place basically run by over-acheiving and dominant mums and their equally nutty families. George chooses this particular suburb because his best friend, tangerine tanned and speedo wearing, Noah (Alan Tudyk) lives there. Tessa is annoyed by the move, baffled by her crazy neighbours and misses her life in the city. A whole series of challenges assault George and Tessa including dealing with their over-bearing neighbours, the shenanigans of Noah and a romance for George ending in a very bizarre last episode to season 1. This show is full of nutty plotlines but I am not sure I totally got the humour. I was more like Tessa and a bit baffled, it's maybe a bit over the top for my tastes. I think it will be something I come back to and re watch, and I do think it is worth a watch as the cast are very good at bringing their bizarre characters to life, maybe it will settle down a bit in the next season.

George and daughter Tessa move from Manhattan to Chatswin in the suburbs, she ever craving a return to civilization.

Reactions to this show depend on how you like your comedy. Here are no subtleties. Most performances are over the top - utterances often shrill and fast, expressions exaggerated, hand waving a feature.

Patronizingly amongst caricatures? Everything depicted is so glossy and superficial - females largely predatory (cleavages more in evidence than braincells), men generally pathetic (including self-adoring dentist Noah), the elderly presumably hidden away somewhere for, throughout the twenty two episodes, scarcely any are seen.

Saving grace is Jeremy Sisto - he the main reason to watch with an appealing performance far removed from his usual dramatic roles. Less happy is the playing of his daughter - she likely to alienate many with her voice and attitude. Never does she convince as a sixteen year old and is irritatingly too full of herself.

American comedies are often sharp and witty, crammed with laughs. Some found this one so. Sadly I did not.

A bonus has creators describing their aims, cast discussing their roles. A gag reel contains more laughs than some may find in the series itself. The box set includes a synopsis of each episode and photographs of the main players - the latter an extra always appreciated.
