Christine is divorced from Richard but continues to see him as a best friend, even when he becomes involved with a woman, also named "Christine." Living in an apartment with her son Ritchie, her brother Matthew rents a separate room in an outbuilding and the two of them feed off the insecurities of the other implanted by their mother during their upbringing. "Old" Christine runs a gym with her best friend Barb, whose name describes her wit. Christine's insecurities are not helped by the other parents at a posh school she and Richard send their son to, one that is generally thought to be beyond the means of regular working people.

This is one of the funniest shows I have seen in a long time. It's been years since a show has consistently been able to make me laugh out loud. My husband and I have two totally different comedic tastes and both of us crack up when we watch this show. Finally something we can watch together!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is hysterical as Old Christine. Her facial expressions are just the icing on the cake.
Wanda Sykes' dryhumor is the perfect match for Dreyfus. And don't get me started on Hamish Linklater as Old Christine's brother Matthew!
This is one show we set the DVR for so we can watch and laugh in peace when the kids are in bed. I hope that "Christine" is on for years to come.
