Product Description

New Adventures of Old Christine, The: The Complete First Season (DVD)

This hilarious comedy from Kari Lizer (Will & Grace) stars Emmy® Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Christine Campbell, a divorced working mom who successfully juggles the daily stresses of motherhood and owning a women's 30-minute gym. Her 8-year-old son, Ritchie (Trevor Gagnon), has been accepted to a posh private school, and her twentysomething slacker brother, Matthew (Hamish Linklater), lives with her and serves as Ritchie's sometime babysitter. Christine gets along with her charming ex-husband, Richard (Clark Gregg), even better than when they were married. But Christine's life just got a lot more complicated. Richard's new girlfriend (Emily Rutherfurd) is nice, young, impossible to hate and also named Christine -- "new" Christine. Guess who suddenly is referred to as "old"? The series also stars Tricia O'Kelley and Alex Kapp Horner as two snooty stay-at-home moms. Wanda Sykes guest stars as Christine's best friend, Barb, and Andy Richter appears as a "sad dad."

Putting an end to the so-called "Seinfeld curse," Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars in her own hilarious 2006 television sit-com as a divorced single mother struggling to raise a child while fighting her own insecurities. The series opens with Christine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) having recently enrolled her young son Ritchie (Trevor Gagnon) in an exclusive private school and feeling uncomfortably aware that she doesn't fit in with the other moms. Christine's ex-husband Richard (Clark Gregg) doesn't make things any easier when he shows up with his new girlfriend, also named Christine (Emily Rutherfurd), whom Christine doesn't even know exists, and things get even worse when the new girlfriend is quickly dubbed "New Christine" leaving Christine with the distasteful moniker "Old Christine." Even Ritchie senses that things are different at his new school on the first day, blurting out "where are the black kids?" in front of his horrified mother. Thus begin 13 episodes of pure comic fun in which basically good, likeable, yet invariably flawed characters seem destined to blurt out those socially unacceptable thoughts that often run through a person's head as they struggle to fit in and build meaningful relationships with each other. Whether Old Christine is trying to rid the world of prejudice, satisfy her own sexual needs, dating a man who wants more commitment than she can offer, trying to live up to the impossible standards of the meanie moms at school, maintain a friendship with her ex-husband, or just do the best job that she can raising her son, she can always be counted upon to do or say the absolute wrong thing and get herself into one uncomfortable situation after another. What makes it all so side-splittingly funny, besides the amazing comic delivery of each and every actor, is the great writing that ensures viewers can relate on a fundamental level to Christine's every predicament. Special features include unaired scenes, a blooper reel, and a 17-minute "The Real Christine" featurette with interview footage of all the major characters as well as show creator Kari Lizer, writer Katie Palmer, director Andy Ackerman, and co-executive producer Adam Barr. --Tami Horiuchi

I really love this show. It's so good and I can see why Julia won a Golden Globe for this. She's such a talented and funny actress and makes this show truly enjoyable. I also really love Wanda Sykes and she brings even more humour to the show and rounds out a great cast.
While everyone probably already knows the plot of the series, here are the episodes within this DVD set.
1 PILOT - She's sweet, she's adorable, she's young, I hate her. Christine meets new Christine.
2 SUPERTRAMP - Christine looks for a fling ... and lands the man mocked as the Sad Dad at Ritchie's school.
3 OPEN WATER - Is love blind? The unexpected occurs when Barb and Pete set Christine up on a blind date.
4 ONE TOE OVER THE LINE, SWEET JESUS - Richard has no problem with Christine and Burton's romance. Nope, no problem at all.
5 I'LL SHOW YOU MINE - The men in her life. After two months of dating, Burton still hasn't met Ritchie.
6 THE OTHER F WORD - Christine takes it upon herself to diversify Ritchie's white white school.
7 LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO STAN - Solo and so low. After she breaks up with Burton, Christine discovers dining out alone is no treat.
8 TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL - Four hundred dollas a guest!? Christine rebels against extravagant children's birthday parties.
9 RITCHIE HAS TWO MOMMIES - ...But only one of them is nuts! Christine freaks when New Christine shows up at Parents' Night.
10 NO FAULT DIVORCE - Why did Christine and Richard get divorced? Maybe for a reason Christine never knew about.
11 EXILE ON LAME STREET - Afraid of what Ritchie will be exposed to at a Rolling Stones concert, Christine tries to crash the event.
12 SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE PORTUGUESE - Working women of the world, unite.

In my opinion, this is one of the best sitcoms ever.

When I heard the first season of The New Adventures of Old Christine was going to be released on DVD, I wanted to jump and shout for joy. Finally! A show series that I find worthy enough to spend money on. It is the only sitcom that I could watch over and over - and laugh just as hard the second, third, or ninety-ninth time.

This is one of the best shows on television. I'm so excited to finally be able to own it and watch it again and again. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is amazing as the star and so much fun to watch. And the supporting cast is wonderful, especially the meanie moms, Tricia O'Kelley and Alex Kapp Horner. It's a DVD you should buy to remind yourself what great television is and that the sitcom isn't dead, it just hasn't been done well for many years...until now.

I admit...I never really watched this on t.v....but then I saw it was out, read all the reviews and decided to buy it...and I am SOOO happy I did....This show is HYSTERICAL! Some parts of it I feel it is living my life...dating being a single mother, issues with your kids....the "Mom Cliques" at school, shopping at Target....every single episode made me laugh. I also did not like her when she was on Seinfeld, but love her on this...even her clothes are cool! I highly recommend this and hope it stays funny and on the air for a very long time. I can't wait for the next season out on DVD.

I was feeling a little down lately and happened upon this DVD. I have been laughing all evening and this little show has healed me.
I had no idea the series was so fantastic! Everything about it, from the excellent writing and laugh-out-loud humor( those striking writers deserve their due! A great comedy show like this would not be possible without the skills of the super talented writers! )...to the excellent actors and actresses, the sets are colorful and interesting, Julia's outfits are so cute....Julia L-D is at her finest. I am sorry to say she USED to be my least fav on Seinfeld, but man is she incredible in this. I have turned into a huge fan! She is gorgeous and hysterically funny. This is a top notch witty show with adult humor, and the scenes with Christine's 8 year old son are not the typical saccharine cloying scenes so commonly done with TV children.
This is a sitcom high up there in quality. It is on par with Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, as far as intelligence and adult humor and quality.

One of the funniest new shows. I seriously laughed out loud in every episode. Usually comedy shows have one or two good episodes, but this show is seriously funny in every single episode. I hope people realize this and start watching it.

hello,
as funny as seinfeld was at the time, the jokes and innuendos were right on track. this christine show had terrible jokes and the scenarios were not up to par with the quality of seinfeld. the characters did not compare to the cast of seinfeld. so, after watching the original seinfeld series back when it was on regular tv and for a binge months sessions this year, this christine show was a total let down. the laugh track was awful, and the sound was not coordinated with the mouth movement. at first it was slightly off, but as the show continued, it was off by at least two seconds and that is a lot. the first episode was 21 minutes, but someone put in 8 more rewind minutes of repeats making this show 29 minutes...plus the worst voice/lip sync in the world. was it worth it? it was, but only to let us know that we did not want to see the rest of this christine series...despite critics reviews. we know what we saw and did not like it.
