Product Overview

Now, there's a kick in the self-confidence: Single working mom Christine Campbell has just learned that her ex is dating a much-younger woman with the same first name. To avoid any confusion, everyone calls one woman New Christine and the other Old Christine. You can guess which is which.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus' hilarious and insightful performance in the title role won fans and earned her the 2006 Emmy as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Christine struggles to hold it together as she adjusts to her new nickname, confronts the meanie moms at her son's private school, jumps back in the dating pool with a post-bikini bod and gets laughs every misstep of the way. You go, old girl!

This two disc collection includes all 13 episodes from The Complete First Season of The New Adventures of Old Christine!

Editors Note
Note Stepping out of the shadow cast by her role as Elaine on TV's venerable SEINFELD, Julia Louis-Dreyfus breaks new ground in her portrayal of divorcee Christine Campbell in this quirky series. A gym owner and single mother, Christine's on surprisingly good terms with her husband after the split. But she suffers a blow when her ex-husband, Richard (Clark Gregg), starts dating a younger woman, also named Christine. Inspired to start living her life again, "Old Christine" jumps back into the singles world with hilariously mixed results. While Louis-Dreyfus's comic sensibility hasn't lost its edge, with plenty of oddball situations and standoffs with "meanie moms," she lends her character an added note of vulnerability that gives the show an emotional core that SEINFELD, for all its nine seasons, didn't have. An irreverent take on modern motherhood, this collection presents all 13 episodes of the show's debut season.

Review In The New Adventures of Old Christine, I think Julia Louis-Dreyfus has hit paydirt. I TiVo'ed it out of respect for Elaine Benes, and figured I had to give Julia the benefit of the doubt and at least give her show a chance. I'm glad that I did. Mynagirl and I have watched all of the episodes so far (four, I think), and they have been pretty damn funny. Sure, there are rough spots and some hackneyed sitcom staples (precocious kid, slacker brother, sassy black friend, etc), but it seems to be working...Louis-Dreyfus really seems comfortable in the role and embodies the old Christine quite fully...This character is older, wiser, and a bit more jaded than Elaine Benes, and with an ex-husband and kid to boot, but still allows flashes of Elaine to show through, which makes me think that they are flashes of Louis-Dreyfus and they just happened to flash through both for Elaine and Christine...The rest of the cast also seem to fit comfortably into their roles, although I'm not sure yet if the character of her son is cute or annoying, although the kid playing the role does a great job...And now I've actually started looking forward to new episodes, and that's rare for me. I hope they keep up the good work on the show, because I want it to be good. It would be nice to see a former Seinfeldian do good.
