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 must watch and own!
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.Read more ›

Very entertaining, the cast is just perfect. What a shame that there is no season 2. I would so much like to know what happens next...Published 2 months ago by Rafal Zboch
I loved Leslie Bibb in the series Popular and she is great in this series too. But Kristin Chenoweth is fantastic as the publicly good Christian who is a vicious backstabber in... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Gerard Taylor
