Suburgatory Season 2 Review “Blowtox & Burlap”

Valentine’s Day episodes can be difficult ventures for some television shows. For starters, the very nature of a Valentine’s show requires a greater emphasis to be placed on the couples. If your show’s most compelling characters are in relationships, that’s super. If not, you run the risk of pushing some of the more enjoyable characters into the background for the sake of showing television viewers that you care about a completely phony holiday (that’s right, I said it). To get out ahead of this potential issue, Suburgatory paired up nearly their entire main cast. With the exception of poor Dalia (who still got in one of her patented monologues), all of our particulars in East Chatswin have stars in their eyes for someone else. It wasn’t an episode that was going to build on the momentum of the fantastic last few weeks, but the Valentine’s Day episode is an unfortunate necessity of network television.
