  • I need a little more cynicism in my Suburgatory.

    Suburgatory used to be a glimpse into the ridiculous suburban world of Chatswin while we piggy-backed on George and Tessa's incredulity. Their straight-talking New York cynicism was essential to the show. But this season the writers are trying to transform George and Tessa into Stepford wives, without acknowledging how weird it is. For the last few episode's I've been waiting for the punchline, or at least a, 'we can still be ourselves while living in Chatswin' moment. But instead the writers just put George on the vapid Dallas train and now they keep putting Tessa in her place for her fairly legitimate views. First with the football players girlfriend's in "Chinese Chicken" and now with the show about Ryan's body. It was a shallow, stupid concept. But again, Tessa was in the wrong. Okay, fine, it's a metaphor for how stupid TV rates better than well thought . I don't know. I stopped watching. I like snarky Tessa who was ashamed of herself for kissing Ryan but just couldn't resist his abs. Tessa who talks about Ryan's big heart and apologizes for trying to create something of substance just makes me want to turn the channel.
