    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As a Dallas resident who has watched our city through the years through outsider's eyes, I guess I am not prone to putting on my blinders to reality that much fiction requires when watching a show about my home town. There is no big hair among the teenagers of Highland Park, usually the gay husbands of socialites are already out and divorced. 30 years ago maybe, but not now. One car dealership with all those brands? The 24,000 square foot interior of a 5000 square foot Swiss Avenue Mansion. Actually the Dallas series did that originally. So, having turned the show off after 30 minutes, I will finish watching my Tivo, and see if I want to record the series. Now I miss Pan AM. Expand

    So many reasons to dislike this show. We turned in because we like Kristin and she looked hideous. Go back go broadway sweetheart, this is far beneath your talents. I agreed with the other reviewer that it is an absurd representation of Dallas. I lived there for 8 years. The accents in the show were like a bad performance of Oklahoma. Nobody there talked like that. No, you do not see cowboy hats on all the men. This town this show as portraying a cartoon version of Mayberry. The humor was terrible and if this is a loving presentation of what Christianity is all about, omg! We wanted to like this show but we bailed at the halfway point. Badly done people. Expand

    I rated this a 0 purely because I hated the commercials for this show which kept popping up every 5 mins. I was also displeased with a show having curse words in their commercials which were on in the afternoon during a basketball game. And people wonder what is wrong with society and children today, the answer in part, is smut like this.

    It has none of Desperate Housewives' winking cuteness, none of Revenge's dagger-eyed, fire-breathing kick. [12 Mar 2012, p.43]

    If GCB wants to soar to heavenly numbers, it better let the devil out to play.

    A potentially funny setup, if the women were not such oddly antiquated sendups.
