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."]]>

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.
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.
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.
