Critic Reviews

  1. While its cynicism about suburbia is superficially novel, the show itself is quite old-fashioned if not old hat: lame dad, smart mom, cute child, knowing child, strange neighbor. Door here, door there, couch in the middle.

    The jokes never got any better than that, not even when the girl-moppet later waxed ecstatic about Zac Efron in High School Musical.

    Suburbia isn't the worst show you've ever seen. It may not even be the worst show you could watch tonight in this time slot. But it is among the least-memorable.

    This was painfully boring and should be canceled immediately.
