Product Description

As seen on the Oxygen Channel

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, that’s 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, I’m 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 Jones’s Diary). Joyce soon learns that in this quaint English village, women don’t kill time—they 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 wouldn’t want to live in Little Stempington, but you’ll never want to leave!

DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE audio commentaries by cast and crew, behind-the-scenes documentary, and cast filmographies.

contains coarse language and adult situations

5.0 out of 5 stars "Every town has its dark side" August 30, 2010
By AyJay
Format:DVD
Housewife Joyce Hazeldine has just moved to the quiet and crime-free village of Little Stempington after her police chief husband [Jeremy] is transferred there. They are both delighted to move somewhere peaceful, clean and safe, but Joyce is about to find out what keeps the troublemakers away...

You see Little Stempington is tightly controlled by two rival gangs of housewives; on one side we have the elegant, well-spoken Camilla and her enforcers - butch Lillian and man-eater Hilary. Camilla only cares about money and is willing to do anything to get her latest scheme [drug dealing] up and running. The thought of getting the new police chiefs wife on side is very appealing to her.

On the other side we have the dowdy looking Barbara, who works tirelessly to keep the streets clean from graffiti and hooligan free with her right-hand women; The prim and proper Pam and earth mother Margaret. If their not keeping the town in tip top condition they're trying to foil Camilla's plans.

Episode 1
"You just blew up the Wicker Barn!"

Camilla involves Joyce in her life of crime by getting her to hold a detonator and press 'the red button'. With her fingerprints now on the charger used in a explosion Joyce is unable to go to the police and report the illegal goings on in Little Stempington.
Barbara introduces her to her gang and explains the origins of the vigilante group and why it splintered off into the two rival gangs.

Episode 2
"I'll shoot your bosom off, you silly woman"

Barbara persuades Joyce to join Camilla's gang, to try and find incriminating evidence to put her behind bars.
We are introduced to Camilla's man-eating daughter Jewel, who learns that Joyce has a son...

5.0 out of 5 stars Desperate Housewives gone bad! May 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Imagine if the women on "Desperate Housewives" broke into rival gangs and just let fly with the mayhem -- that's what you've got with this show and the result is hysterical! There are no holds barred with these crazy, take-charge Brit soccer moms (or should I say football moms?).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best show ever September 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm very picky about TV, but this show is hilarious. The originality, cleverness, and above all humor of the writing was a pleasant surprise, plus it's nice to see a cast of women allowed to be funny, crass, and violent without apologizing. I remember reading some tagline comparing it to Desperate Housewives, but I say nerts to that! It's better! I'm so bored with the numerous depictions of women as materialistic, fashion, man, and money obsessed, with some half hearted message of female empowerment shoe horned in. The women of "Suburban" are gangster cliches wrapped in house wife cliches, and the actresses bring heaps of fun and charisma to each character. It's just completely driven by ridiculous humor and surprises. So totally worth checking out!

...plus, I love Bill and Jewel. He's super funny and adorable, and she's completely nuts. They're great :)

Pity they didn't continue this series. It was hilarious. Watching "everyday" housewives controlling the crime in the burbs is very entertaining

I bought this because I'm obsessed with Tom Hiddleston, but I ended up really liking this show. The humor is definitely the dry, British sort so I can see many Americans not enjoying it but I tend to like that style of comedy so I thought this show was hilarious! I definitely recommend this series.

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.
