I saw the trailer for this, loved it soo much that I hacked the Region Codes on my DVD players so that I could buy a copy of this and watch it at home. It was worth it - but remember to buy your copy from UK based companies or you could be forced to pay import duty.

Producers who worked on this also worked on Sex And The City and Ugly Betty, so you should know what to expect. Given the bitchiness of some of the characters I said this reminded me of Ugly Betty but with more laughs (I gave up on Ugly Betty quite early on). My wife said it was like Ugly Betty but with fewer laughs - she gave up on GCB quite early on!

I bought this from amazon.com when I was visiting family in the USA (it was waiting for me at their house when I arrived). I knew it was a risk buying a sit-com untried, but I'm a Kristin Chenoweth fan and wanted to see the programme! Suffice to say, I enjoyed it enough that I don't regret buying it, though I don't think it merits repeated viewing.

The programme got better over the course of the episodes, but episode 8, where the church is trying to stage a musical, is the only episode that has any laugh-out-loud moments. Although I enjoyed the whole series, I can't really justify more than three stars for a programme that only made me laugh out loud in one episode.

The end of the final episode leaves the viewer wanting to know what happens next - very frustrating that we'll never find out.

On the positive side you do get to hear Kristin Chenoweth sing in a couple of episodes. If she sang more it would definitely get a fourth star. And to end with another positive - if they change their mind about a second series, I'll buy it.

This is a brilliant series. I now officially have 6 other friends hooked. The series is comical and light hearted. The cast is brilliant , the only sad thing is their is only one season because the network apparently scrapped it, so the last episode leaves you hanging and wanting more but there isn't any!

This is a must watch and own!

I bought this from US Amazon, sight-unseen for three reasons: Robert Harling (writer of the excellent films "The First Wives Club", and "Steel Magnolias"), Kristin Chenoweth (from "Pushing Daisies", among many other things), and Miriam Shor (Yitzhak in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", and "Swingtown"). Frankly, I didn't know much else about the show (apart from that the original name of GCB, based on the book "Good Christian Bitches" by Kim Gatlin, had been controversial). I was a bit worried that it might be like "Sex and the City" (I gave up on that early).

I needn't have worried.

GCB is a big, over-the-top, tongue-firmly-in-cheek comedy. It takes the soap opera genre - full of infidelities, scandals, rivalries, and secrets - and makes it one-hundred-times bigger, so that it pops with a crackling scripts, fantastic comedy performances from all the leads, and sets so outsized that they pass out of the realms of Texas-big and into the realms of comedy (one couple, Blake and Cricket Caruth-Reilly, have a bed so big it will make your head spin: think super-super-Queensize).

GCB features former mean-girl Amanda Vaughn (nee Stopper) (Leslie Bibb) who returns to the wealthy Texan town where she terrorised the girls at school by bullying them, tormenting them, and spreading rumours that they had STIs. Now, her marriage ended in the scandalous death of her rat-husband, and she arrives home in a newly-dispossessed and vulnerable state. Her mother, Gigi Stopper (a wonderfully scenery-chewing Annie Potts) welcomes her wayward daughter with open arms. The now-successful women she tortured, however, are not so willing to forgive-and-forget.
