From Darren Star, creator of SEX AND THE CITY, and Robert Harling, writer of STEEL MAGNOLIAS, comes a deliciously fun, wicked new drama that shows you can go home again... but only if you're ready to face the sins of your past. Indulge yourself in the guilty pleasures of GCB: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON. 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 in Dallas to start life anew under her mother's (Annie Potts) palatial roof. But will the good women of her hometown welcome her back 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)! Relive all 10 episodes of GCB, including "sin-tillating," never-before-seen bonus features, in this divinely decadent boxed set.

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.
P.S. Just received my DVD of Season 1 today and quickly watched the extras----was laughing so hard, watching the bloopers, "Bigger in Texas" and deleted scenes. Watching this cast interact with one another and hearing the "back story" on the show only makes me love it more and sad to know that ABC canceled it. They have such chemistry together which is evident as you watch the show. Will enjoy watching the season again, over and over! Some network needs to wake up and give this show another chance. Look at all of the people who are ready for Season 2!
All of that changed during the early part of 2012 when I saw advertisements/promo's for GCB. It looked like an intriguing show, had an incredible cast, and was based in my home state of Texas (although I'm displaced to Atlanta). As the anticipated date for the series premiere arrived I knew I'd be there to see the first episode. And darn if it didn't disappoint.
I became hooked because the show not only resonated with my Texas upbringing it also possessed fine acting from an extremely well-experienced cast; unpredictable & well connected plot lines; intrigue; character complexity, transparency, & believability; and finally great comedic character interactions. In GCB I could have it all. That for me is rare in network programming. And now I can continue my healthy obession with the show through the recently released Season 1 DVD.
Unfortunately the unpredictable & capricious canceling of the show based on ABC/Disney's elevated expectations that GBC, as a Sunday night replacement, would immediately garner the high viewership ratings that its popular, long-running series Desperate Housewives received. Seriously what kind of executive decision-making did ABC/Disney executives utilize in determining GBC viewership rating goals and its subsequent canceling. I believe they practiced the scientific technique of flipping a one-sided coin to align with their pre-determined capricious decision to cancel.
For now, I'm appreciative that the first season is captured in a newly released DVD I recently purchased. HOWEVER, this does not soothe the issue of cancellation because as a devoted GCB fan I was eagerly awaitng Season 2 and its subsequent DVD.
ABC/DISNEY - REVERSE & REINSTATE
ABC/Disney, I impore you to reverse your cancellation decision and reinstate GCB for Season 2 and hopefully beyond. GCB fans will be appreciative AND we'll add to your viewship demographics. Plus, we'll buy future DVDs and other GCB related novelties. Otherwise, I'll go back to watching cable stations only.
