Complete first series of a high-caliber comedy
"The British Desperate Housewives" TheTelegraph (U.K.)
"Unrestrained brilliance" San Francisco Chronicle
Ah, suburbia! The smell of newly mown grass, the colorful blooms in flowerbeds, the clatter of automatic gunfire .at least, thats how it goes in Little Stempington, a posh London burb where the ladies care more about turf wars than topsoil. They stash Glocks in Tupperware, extort protection money from the Wicker Barn, and peddle black-market estrogen patches at the local pub. When mild-mannered Joyce Hazledine (Amelia Bullmore, Im Alan Partridge) moves to town, she finds herself caught between rival gangs led by Camilla (Anna Chancellor, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Barbara (Felicity Montagu, Bridget Joness Diary). Joyce soon learns that in this quaint English village, women dont kill timethey kill each other.
In Suburban Shootout, the laughs hit you faster than rounds from an Uzi and the satire packs more punch than a Viagra-laced baked Alaska. You wouldnt want to live in Little Stempington, but youll never want to leave!

I've always liked British humor so I like this series. I agree with another reviewer that I got it because of Tom Hiddleston but ended up enjoying the series.Published 9 months ago by #1 Amazon Fan!
This was a lot funnier than I expected. You just can't take it seriously, and wait eagerly for the next over-the-top thing to happen.Published 22 months ago by Shawna M
If you like a lot of action, and shoot em ups, this will please. For me, it wasn't as good as I had hoped, I was hoping for more of a story line. Read morePublished on June 27, 2013 by The Old Man "Steve", Nampa, Id.
