SUBURGATORY “Thanksgiving” Review

SUBURGATORY "Thanksgiving" Season 1 Episode 8 – I think "Thanksgiving" might be my favoriteepisode of Suburgatory so far, and that’s saying a lot because I’ve enjoyed every episode I’ve seen. But eight weeks in, the show is starting to gel into one of the better half hours of my week.

With all of her beloved New York Thanksgiving traditions off the table, Tessa has a case of the holiday blues, which probably won’t be cheered up by spending the day with Dallas at George’s urging.
