Editorial Reviews

When four strong, sassy and sexy Southern women running a fledgling interior decorating firm hit the television airwaves as Designing Women in 1986, they brought a new kind of Southern spirit to American television. Smart, ambitious and outspoken: they embodied the new Southern woman.

The series starred Delta Burke as the alimony-rich beauty queen Suzanne Sugarbaker, Dixie Carter as Julia Sugarbaker, who is nobodys fool and runs the operation, Annie Potts as Mary Jo Shively, the sweet-natured, recently divorced mother, and Jean Smart as the small-town gal Charlene Frazier. All women are devoted to the business, and each one is devoted to the other.

Enjoy 7 classic episodes from the critically acclaimed first season of this groundbreaking comedy!

4.0 out of 5 stars fun budget "Designing Women" disc September 23, 2010
Shout! Factory releases a selection of classic episodes from the first season of DESIGNING WOMEN, nicely-priced for those looking for a sampler before they plunge into full sets, or even for a cute Christmas stocking-stuffer.

Meet the staff of Atlanta design firm Sugarbaker & Associates, headed by the staunch, free-thinking Julia Sugarbaker (the late, great Dixie Carter) and her sister, the man-crazed former beauty queen Suzanne (Delta Burke). Sweet-natured secretary Charlene Frazier (Jean Smart) and divorced single mother Mary Jo Shively (Annie Potts) round out the team. Reserve your table at Tokyo Gardens and settle back with some classic DESIGNING WOMEN.

Includes the following episodes:

"Designing Women" (Pilot) - The girls are horrified when Suzanne starts dating the ex-husband of Mary Jo! Guest starring Scott Bakula

"A Big Affair" - Charlene's new boyfriend Mason Dodd (Walter Olkewicz) is overweight...something she can't quite get comfortable with.

"Design House" - The girls land a plum spot at the prestigious Design House '86 Expo...but with flaky Suzanne at the helm, are they asking for trouble? This episode also marks the first appearance of the girls' delivery man and former ex-convict, Anthony Bouvier (Meshach Taylor).

"I Do, I Don't" - Julia and her boyfriend Reese (Hal Holbrook) wind up married after consuming "half the alcohol in Georgia"...and now a shamed Julia must deal with the consequences.

"New Year's Daze" - The girls celebrate New Year's Eve with their boyfriends...Julia is none too pleased that Reese is tied up in New York; whilst Suzanne dates an 82-year-old millionaire. Charlene's undercover boyfriend, Shadow (he of the bullet-hole pants), esapes from prison...

1.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete Sets are a waste! September 25, 2010
I'm an avid Designing Women fan but this slimmed down version of some of the best work in hollywood is crazy. I have the other collections. Who doesn't want the complete collections when they are spending their hard earned money on the sets anyway? I hate when production companies decide to spend more money to give the public cheap, incomplete sets of film. That happened with Touched By An Angel after they dubbed several collection sets. These volume 1 and on sets are pointless I feel, especially if the episodes aren't in sequence. If you have the other collections chances are you already own the episodes in this collection, particularly the pilot ep. Come on get real, obviously there's an interest in the complete product just manufacturer it and sell it!

This is excellent but if you really like Designing Women then you should buy the Designing Women 20 Timeless Classics, It has the same episodes on it as well as many more, it is eight hours of laughs. Very enjoyable. Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying this but...... April 23, 2014

I am enjoying these episodes of Designing Women, I just wish I had paid attention when ordering. What I have is just 7 episodes of the first season. I was so bummed when I realized that! What sense is putting out just a few episodes?? The quality is good, no complaints there. Received my order earlier than expected, which was great. But now, because I didn't pay good enough attention, I have to order Season One...again. The complete season this time. Whats irritating is that I have read reviews of Season 1, and my favorite episodes are not on Volume One. My point in writing this review, is to make others aware that there is a dvd that looks like a full episode Season One, but it only contains 7 epidodes! Pay attention...or you might be as disappointed as I was.

I'm not sure how to rate this as it was my mistake in not reading the complete description of this DVD. I thought I was buying the entire first season and not just a "taste" of several programs. I will donate this copy to the library so that those who did not see this classic series can enjoy this introduction but I have already ordered the complete first season that I thought I was buying in this DVD.
