Overview

When CBS greenlighted the half-hour sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine, it was with the fervent hope that series star Julia Louis-Dreyfus would be the one to break the "Seinfeld" curse that had doomed the actress' Seinfeld colleagues to an embarrassing plethora of DOA TV-series projects. Louis-Dreyfus was cast as Christine, a divorced mother and the owner of Thirty Minutes to Bloom, a quick-turnover workout gym designed for busy professional women. Although Christine enjoyed a friendly relationship with her ex-husband, Richard (Clark Gregg), this status quo was in danger of going south in a hurry when Richard began dating a much-younger woman (Emily Rutherfurd), also named Christine (hence the series' title). Meanwhile, the "old" Christine was carrying on a war of nerves with Marly (Tricia O'Kelley) and Lindsay (Alex Kapp Horner), the pretentious and snobbish room parents at the expensive private school where Christine's son, Ritchie (Trevor Gagnon), was enrolled. Also featured was Hamish Linklater as the series' intended "breakout" character, Christine's slacker brother, Matthew. Created by Kari Lizer, The New Adventures of Old Christine debuted March 13, 2006, with two separate episodes.

    This is what sitcoms are (or should be) about!

    My love for the comedic, clumsy Christine Campbell has overcome my love for the sarcastic Elaine Benes. Julia Louis-Dreyfus portrays Christine Campbell to a T, making me forget all about Elaine's witticisms. For every rung on the ladder Christine climbs, she falls down two more. Christine isn't the "straight" character with a lot of goofy sidekicks. SHE is the main attraction herself and is not to be missed. Her friends and family merely augment her wackiness. The addition of Wanda Sykes only makes Christine's antics more hilarious, and when they're together, they become modern day Lucy and Ethel. On the rare occasions that CBS actually puts new episodes of "Christine" on the air (hello, full season, anyone?), I am there. And I will continue to buy her DVDs for as long as they make them (which, sadly, I doubt will be for long with greedy, CSI-loving, reality show-doting CBS execs in charge). In the meantime, please purchase a copy of "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and show your support! You won't regret it! It won't hurt your wallet -- only your sides from laughing too hard!
