This iReport is part of an assignment:
What are you watching?
If you are looking for a comedy that doesn't have any annoying screaming, laughing or campy acting, then Suburgatory is for you. This new show is so refreshing I absolutely love it. I like all the characters, even the ones you love to hate are great. The acting is perfect, the scenes look something like the Desperate Housewives set. I can actually understand every word each character speaks, they don't slur or talk to fast.
The first episode brought George and his teenage daughter Tessa to the suburbs. They lived in New York City but when George found condoms in Tessa's dresser he decided to get her out of the big city. Of course Tessa wasn't happy. They both soon learned just how different the suburbs are. Waking up in the morning and hearing total silence was a new experience for both.
At school, Tessa was assigned a "buddy", a girly girl named Dalia all dressed in pink and a short skirt, with tassels in her hair. Dalia's first question to Tessa was "are you a lesbian", Dalia isn't used to seeing girls dress like boys. Tessa spent her first lunch in the handicapped stall so she could avoid everyone.
Then the story went on where Dalia's mother took Tessa and Dalia and even George to the mall to shop for "girly" things for Tessa.
Full of father daughter conflicts but in a sarcastic funny way, this new series should be a run away hit. It lacks everything I abhore about most comedy's.
Be sure to catch this Wednesday nights on ABC.
