Editorial Reviews

Welcome, y'all, to ABC's GCB: The Complete First Season. From Darren Star, creator of Sex And The City, and inspired by the devilishly fun novel, GCB dishes the dirt on the return of a "prodigal daughter" to her upscale Dallas community, where everyone hopes she's home for good... and not evil. Back in high school, original mean girl Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb) mercilessly tormented her less attractive classmates. Twenty years later, after her hubby is busted for a Ponzi scheme - and meets his maker in a particularly scandalous way - a disgraced Amanda is back to start life anew under her mother's (Annie Potts) palatial roof. But will the good women of her hometown welcome her with open arms or dole out some kick-ass karmic payback? Let's just say, hell hath no fury like cosmetically enhanced, resident church diva and scripture scholar Carlene Cockburn (Kristin Chenoweth)! Start off your GCB collection and relive all 10 episodes, including "sin-tillating," never-before-seen bonus features in this divinely decadent boxed set.

Everything is bigger in Texas and ABC's comic soap opera "GCB" is out to prove it! Completely over-the-top (and I mean that as a compliment), this show plays to and skewers every Southern cliche imaginable. From Dallas society to religious propriety, the sharp screenplays always have their tongues planted firmly in cheek and the ten episodes of Season One are filled with scandal, infidelities, old rivalries, and even a song or two. Creator Robert Harling adapted the colorfully titled Kim Gatlin novel which doesn't abbreviate just what GCB stands for. ABC, apparently a bit shy about employing the B-word in the show's title, briefly flirted with the notion of Good Christian Belles (which sells out Gatlin's entire premise) but then settled on GCB as an appropriate compromise (and then promptly and ironically rolled out another mid-season replacement sitcom in which the B-word figured prominently in the title). Meant to recapture some of the luster of the aging and wildly uneven "Desperate Housewives," the show failed to build on that ratings lead-in and it's a shame. If more people had sampled "GCB," they might have been caught up in its madcap antics!

"GCB" addresses what happens when a former mean girl returns to her hometown roots to reunite with old high school friends and rivals. Leslie Bibb is this reformed baddie who arrives in Dallas in shame after her criminal husband has died under scandalous circumstances. Her controlling mother (Annie Potts) welcomes her and her two kids with open arms, but a quartet of former acquaintances aren't quite so accepting. Bibb, though, is truly trying to be a better person. Her friends, meanwhile, who have all achieved success start to feel old insecurities creep back. The show is crisp and sassy and quite a bit of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABC Strikes Again... May 13, 2012
Format:DVD
As the title say...ABC has done it again. It has canceled another wonderful show filled with promise, wonderful and hilarious characters with actors like Kristen Chenoweth and Annie Potts who steals the show for me every time they are in front of the camera. I can't believe that the head of ABC has the audacity to keep tired shows like the Bachelor and Bachelorette going season after season. We all know that show has the same lame-ass formula where the couple will end up breaking up after their five-minute of fame fades away. Meanwhile shows like GCB and Missing gets cancelled without giving it a real chance to succeed but instead be included to ABC's purgatory of shows with high potential and a loyal following with such other gem of a show like Nightstalker (2007), The Gates (2010), No Ordinary Family (2010-2011) and Wipeout.

I will miss seeing GCB in fall 2012. With Desperate Housewives ending for good, what will Sunday be like without the hilarious Ms. Chenoweth, the beautiful Ms Bibb, the always affable Ms Potts, and the rest of the hilarious cast of GCB. At least when the DVD comes out for sale, I will have it to remember this short-lived show and the laughter that this show brought me on Sunday nights.

RIP...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp Wit, Great Acting, and Southern Accents March 23, 2012
Format:DVD
I've been a Kristin Chenoweth fan since "Pushing Daisies." Her amazing performance of Olive Snook made her a scene-stealer, to say the least. Since then, I've been purchasing her albums, seeing her shows, etc., but I couldn't wait to see her return on TV. I didn't really know what GCB would be like, but Kristin's appearance in it was enough to spark my interest.
GCB, originally titled "Good Christian Bitches," quickly became one of my favorite new shows. Along with Chenoweth, the series stars Leslie Bibb, the amazing Annie Potts, as well as a cavalcade of more talent. The shows sharp wit provides a take on all the "Holier than Thou" people in our lives, as well as a play on the Texan stereotype. It's not in the least bit offensive, just hilarious. After the conviction of her husband, a business man who played the old Ponzi-Scheme, Amanda (Leslie Bibb) returns to her hometown in Texas to live with her mother and children. There she finds her former classmates, who she tortured, including a new neighbor/old foe (Kristin Chenoweth) named Carlene. By new, I don't mean a new person, but an old classmate whose numerous plastic surgeries give a new look to the acne-ridden, firzzy-haired teenager that Amanda once tortured, along with Carlene's many friends (Sharon, Cricket, and Heather). Carlene's rat-pack plan revenge on the newly vulnerable Amanda.
An entertaining mix of wit, talent, and strong under-lying story-lines, GCB is a show that will entertain from beginning to start. And it's sure to entertain on DVD. The DVD will feature Featurettes, Audio Commentaries, and Bloopers on a three-disc, ten episode set.

The show Good Christian Belles "GCB" is a very entertaining show. A great storyline with some really talented actors/actresses. I am a huge fan of Kristin Chenoweth and she is so good in this show. Anybody that has seen Kristin perform can attest she can play comedy or drama with the best of them. As for the opportunities she got to sing on the show, well those were spectacular! Kristin Chenoweth and singing is as natural for her as breathing is for everybody else. I always say .."A SONG has no better friend than Kristin Chenoweth!". ABC had a wonderfully gifted performer and set her and crew aside. Remember Pushing Daisies, that was another great show by ABC, only to exit out way too early. GCB was a show with a very believable plot and a very talented bunch indeed. I thought all played off of each other well and there was plenty of growth there for a young show. Many shows have slow starts (although I personally don't think of this one in that way). Annie Potts is a great actress. Leslie Bibb was really good in her part as well. They were so many good actors that played their parts well with some pretty good lines scattered in also. I still think Kristin Chenoweth is a real HOOT when it comes to comedy. The one-liners are priceless. When you use the term CHARACTERS in the show, they sure were that. That's a great reason for buying this treasure. I hope ABC will rethink there cancellation of this show and bring it back for a second season. You would think ABC would give a series two or possibly three seasons to show it's stuff, I know there is enough money invested in it to warrant a chance. I think it is more important than ever for a fan of this show to buy this season one, if anything to show ABC the potential for future sells is very much alive! This is a great purchase!
