Suburgatory 1.21 "The Great Compromise" Review

Suburgatory has to achieve a pretty difficult balance in order to create a quality episode. They may be tied to be a pretty classic fish-out-of-water theme, but the tone of the show is anything but classic, very energetic with an admirable amount of weirdness to it. If the show doesn't get the formula right, keeping itself grounded without being rote and quirky without being over-the-top, it can be doomsday for that particular episode. Promisingly enough, the show has managed to hit the target amount of humanity and surreal moments more frequently as its season has developed; however, after last week's episode felt extremely dated and overly broad, I began to worry about a possible backslide.

Thankfully, though, Suburgatory managed to right the ship in "The Great Compromise", the penultimate episode of the show's auspicious debut season. Most notably, the "Eden is carrying Noah's baby" plot »
