TV PILOT REVIEW: ABC's "Suburgatory"
But sprinkled between her acts of rebellion and moments of desperation are heartwarming scenes like when the seemingly inappropriate neighbor Dallas Royce (Cheryl Hines from "Curb Your Enthusiasm") gives her her first real bra. That's traditionally a bonding moment between mother and daughter that is rarely if ever properly executed between father and daughter, so it was sweet to see her get to have that moment. Plus, it was proof that George made the right decision by moving her to a more girl-friendly location. However, the comedy will be in watching them both wrestle with what kind of girl is a product of such an aesthetically-obsessed environment.
So far, the comedy is decent and the acting is on par with your average sitcom. Depending on plot development, I give it a season.
