Storyline

Tessa and George have been on their own ever since Tessa's mom pulled a "Kramer vs. Kramer." So far George has done a pretty good job of raising Tessa without a maternal figure in their lives, but suddenly he's feeling a little out of his league, especially after he finds a pack of condoms in her room. So it's goodbye New York City and hello suburbs. At first Tessa is horrified by the big-haired, fake-boobed mothers and their sugar-free, Red Bull-chugging kids. But little by little, she and her dad begin to find a way to survive on the clean streets of the 'burbs. Sure, the neighbors might smother you with love while their kids stare daggers at your back, but underneath all that plastic and caffeine, they're really not half bad. Being in the 'burbs can be hell, but it also may just bring Tessa and George closer than they've ever been. Written by ABC Publicity

"Family" comedy fails miserably
28 September 2011 | by anchorladySee all my reviews

I watched this because I like a lot of the actors involved (Jeremy Sisto, Alan Tudyk, Ana Gasteyer) but it's a hot mess.

There really shouldn't be so much unintentional sexual tension between a father & daughter in a sitcom - just saying! Sisto & Levy give OK performances, but their interactions as father & daughter are simply not believable.

The premise is a sort of live-action Daria meets Mean Girls, but it lacks any genuine heart. Cheryl Hines & Alan Tudyk probably were the highlights of this episode, but everyone involved deserves a better quality project, stat!
