4.0 out of 5 stars A decent series - quite funny and original. 1 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first of all heard this series on Tumblr and I'm not going to lie - I bought it for the sheer Tom Hiddleston-ness in it.
However after watching each episode, the storyline develops into it's own original idea, with the addition of the gorgeous Tom as Bill.
The whole Desperate-Housewives-Meet-Hot-Fuzz is pretty funny, especially with the amount of weaponry and deviousness these woman have.
Although it's not consistently laugh-out-loud material and can be a bit dry, I urge you to persevere. It becomes addictive and I will be buying the second series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark humour, witty lines, what's not to love? 21 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this product initially because I'm a Tom Hiddleston fan (please don't judge me too harshly!) but I soon realised that this series is awesome even if he wasn't in it. The acting is very good and the writing is spot-on.

Would definitely recommend this too fans of Hot Fuzz.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Every town has its dark side" 25 July 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
** SUBURBAN SHOOTOUT ran on Channel 5 between 2006 to 2007 in the UK. Oxygen showed it in the US **

Housewife Joyce Hazeldine has just moved to the quiet and crime-free village of Little Stempington after her police chief husband [Jeremy] is transferred there. They are both delighted to move somewhere peaceful, clean and safe, but Joyce is about to find out what keeps the troublemakers away...

You see Little Stempington is tightly controlled by two rival gangs of housewives; on one side we have the elegant, well-spoken Camilla and her enforcers - butch Lillian and man-eater Hilary. Camilla only cares about money and is willing to do anything to get her latest scheme [drug dealing] up and running. The thought of getting the new police chiefs wife on side is very appealing to her.

On the other side we have the dowdy looking Barbara, who works tirelessly to keep the streets clean from graffiti and hooligan free with her right-hand women; The prim and proper Pam and earth mother Margaret. If their not keeping the town in tip top condition they're trying to foil Camilla's plans.

Episode 1
"You just blew up the Wicker Barn!"

Camilla involves Joyce in her life of crime by getting her to hold a detonator and press 'the red button'. With her fingerprints now on the charger used in a explosion Joyce is unable to go to the police and report the illegal goings on in Little Stempington.
Barbara introduces her to her gang and explains the origins of the vigilante group and why it splintered off into the two rival gangs.

Episode 2
"I'll shoot your bosom off, you silly woman"

Barbara persuades Joyce to join Camilla's gang, to try and find incriminating evidence to put her behind bars.

4.0 out of 5 stars laughing? 2 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I giggled and snorted my way through this series. I caught the first episode when it was originally aired but then forgot to watch the others!
The "ladies" are far from ladylike in their antics. The men are useless and completely oblivious to their behaviour, even when they are covered in blood.

Anna Chancellor is wonderfully snooty; Tom Hiddleston is just clueless and blinkered to any female advance.

Looking forward to seeing series 2

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast service, good quality 17 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hard to find show, good condition. A uniquely British production, it examines what would happen if the usual suburban intrigues and the ebb and flow of gossip etc. were to involve weapons. Gangs of housewives, carefully keeping it hidden from the men around them. Weirdly fascinating

Authentic small-town life with a killing twist, an ongoing range of plotlines to please the most fussy and some nasty moments of clever satire that will make you think long and hard when you visit the boss' house about who exactly will be offended by where you park... Watch all the eps in a row and send everyone else away because I said so.

5.0 out of 5 stars You either love it or you don't 25 Jun 2012
I was always fond of these quirky british shows and Suburban Shootout is absolutely hilarious. Playing with stereotipes, blowing things out of proportion, everything just works! I think the cast is brilliant and each one of them does his/her job perfectly. Besides the great humour we also get some character development, so kuddos to Ruth Wilson!

I would recommend this series to all of you who love and understand british humour. It's definitely not for those who want to put their ''mind switch'' off. You just won't get the whole experience if you do.
