It’s funny, ditsy and down right addictive and I’ve only seen the first season now on DVD. ABC’s GCB (Good Christian Belles) has what it takes to be another Sex and the City upper class down home country style. The characters in this weekly sitcom series are the perfect medicine for the ladies and those men who just love some great eye candy and cat fights.
The series follows Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb) who has just lost her Ponzi scheming husband to a fatal auto accident while having sex with his mistress. With the loss of her luxurious homestead and wealth to the government, Amanda takes her children back to her home where she grew up in upper class Dallas.
Totally broke she moves in with her high society mother (Anne Potts) who she has estranged since her high school graduation over her marriage to the football star jock. Now in her 30’s Amanda must cope with the ‘girls’ she left behind, especially since she was queen of mean in their high school.
Hilarious at times, this sitcom has all the right stuff, plenty of wicked intervention with her former classmates, every guy in town rubbernecking to catch a look at the perfect doll, and a church full of busybodies that stretch the Christian bible to suit their disdain.
The stars of the show who support the fine acting of Leslie Bibb are:
The situations are well directed and written with surprises at every turn. I like the snappy comedic dialog, nicely designed upscale fashions, scathingly brilliant nasty rhetoric between the girls, solid performances by the whole cast and would like to see more in next season’s shows.
On top of all the fun there’s some very good bonus features that are great for the ladies:
FINAL ANALYSIS: It’s fun and gun comedy that works. ★★★★★★
