Like many others, I scoffed and rolled my eyes at the promos for "Lipstick Jungle." It basically looked like NBC's spin-off of "Sex and the City." After all, both shows are based on books by Candice Bushnell and both shows focus on the friendship between beautiful, successful women in NYC.

But honestly, "Lipstick Jungle" is great on its own merit! The show's major strength lies in its leading ladies. All three actresses make their characters - and their relationships - believable. Their chemistry lends itself to the audience and you can see why their friendship works.

I also really liked how the show focused on the women's careers. While the ladies of "Sex and the City" had powerful careers, not much time was spent on that aspect of their lives. "Lipstick Jungle," on the other hand, weaves its storylines around the women's jobs (instead of the men they love). It was refreshing to see such strong female characters talk about things beside their romantic entanglements.

On the downside, some of the plot lines lacked originality and pizazz. Sometimes it felt as though the writers were going for "hip" or "scandalous" scenarios (i.e. threesomes) that just fell flat. These situations didn't work because they were too tame and, more importantly, other shows went there...years ago.

For the most part, however, "Lipstick Jungle" is a solid show. It has everything successful TV needs: good acting, believable characters, and interesting stories.

One word of caution: the DVD only features seven episodes, so it would be cost efficient to rent or wait until the price drops a bit. You can also watch the episodes (with limited commercials) on NBC's website for free. Check it out!

I had been looking forward to this for so long. I'd seen all the casts interviews on Today so long ago and couldn't wait to watch this. Because in Australia we yet again don't keep up with the rest of the world, I bought this on dvd and it was as good as I thought it would be. I really love Candice Bushnall and she didn't disappoint with this series.
Brooke plays Wendy Healy, Kim is Nico and Lindsay is Victory. They are longtime friends who are challenged with keeping up with complicated business and personal lives. Wendy is a film executive and a wife to a musician husband Shane whose own career takes a backseat to hers. Victory had a top notch fashion career that she's trying to start again. And lastly Nico who's the editor of a top fashion magazine and her marriage has issues too. That's the main premise and with each episode we see their lives go through ups and downs professionally and personally.
When my copy arrived, I watched it all in one weekend. It's addictive and I found it really enjoyable. Victory is my favourite character and yet they all make the show. I don't think there is one particular stand out role. This is a great new program that you'll really enjoy if you loved SATC. It's different and yet just as good and I hope it gets the same kind of longevity. I highly recommend this.

Lipstick Jungle has proven that it has what it takes to be the sexiest show on television. The combination of powerful women and provocative storylines will make your loins tingle. Candace Bushnell has done it again, and could have quite possibly trumped the raved about "Sex in the City". As a guy's guy who was wrangled in by my girlfriend to watch this show, I have been pleasantly surpised (considering I would have not watched it if it wasnt for her). Further, the passion and elitism these women exhibit encourages my girlfriend to be the same way which has really spiced up our love life. Guys, trust me, its a win/win situation for you!

This is a GREAT well made TV series. NBC definitely has a hit show on their hands. I am hooked after the first few episodes and can't wait for season 2 to start. The first season was so good but short. Well written by the same writer Candance Bushnell of Sex & The City. Lots of great fashion, powerful women you can relate to, love, friendships, office politics, drama, great fun and best of all...hot men. The young Kirby Atwood play by Robert Buckley is totally eye candy and Andrew McCarthy and Paul Blackthorne ain't bad either.
I am not a Brooke Shields fan either and find her acting still weak but Kim Raver who plays Nico Reilly is superb in her role. The storyline and just the guys alone are worth watching. You can catch every old episodes online but I couldn't wait and pre-order this dvd set to enjoy at home all over again. It has become my favorite running TV series now. I used to love my Thursdays after I discover this show. I would say it is as good as Sex & The City except this is a television series not HBO and the great thing is it is not a copy cat either. While SATC jump from one guy to the next on their sex life, LJ focus more on relationships and my heart ache watching some scenes which I haven't felt a long time watching a TV series. I hope season 2 will have much more episodes. I recommend this to all my girlfriends.

I really love this tv series. After reading (and loving) the book, I couldn't wait for the show to come out. I think all three actresses are very talented (yes, even Brooke) and each episode will keep you intrigued til the end. I was only disappointed with the lack of episodes for the first season, but hope for more episodes in the future.
