Summary of Season 1 (2006) - 2 discs

Shedding the "'Seinfeld' curse," Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns to prime-time comedy with a vengeance in an Emmy-winning role as divorced mom Christine Campbell. With her own business to run and a third-grader to raise, she manages to stay afloat thanks in part to the friendly relationship she shares with her ex (Clark Gregg) -- that is, until he starts dating a much younger woman, coincidentally also named Christine.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although Christine spends plenty of heartwarming moments with her third-grader, this sitcom isn't really about parenting. It's actually more adult, dealing humorously with such issues as how middle-class types mingle with their super-rich counterparts, how women size each other up, and how ex-spouses move on and move up in the world.

Sexual Content

Though there's no nudity, sex is referenced within the first 10 minutes of the first episode, and constantly in subsequent episodes.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Pretty tame ("damn," "hell").

Social Behavior

Stay-at-home moms are pitted against working moms; exes do their best to navigate separate lives, but it sometimes gets messy; a divorcee does the best that she can to remake herself.

Consumerism

Nothing excessive (though the son occasionally plays GameBoy).

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Christine and friends occasionally have a glass of wine.
