With a long list of dramas filling up my dvr, ABC’s Suburgatory feels like a breathe of fresh air. As with most pilot episodes, this show has some room for improvement, but I see real signs of potential. What Suburgatory really has going for it is a great cast that can deliver wisecracks and a sincere storyline. I hope audiences give this funny and sweet sitcom a real chance.
For a limited-time, Five Dollar Shake readers can watch an advanced screening of ABC’s newest comedy, Suburgatory!
