I'm addicted!
15 February 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The starter wife is a very fun series. It's nice to have a series about older woman and not always teenagers. I really like Debra messing as an actress. She has something sympathetic and funny about her. The other characters in the series are also very fun to watch. The gay friend, the ex husband, the weird girlfriend. I think it's really sad that nobody seems to like the show. I think when it is shown on Belgium television, it can't be bad. So i don't understand they won't make a second season. If you're reading this and you're interested in watching the series, please give them a chance. When you watch the first episodes, you soon be an addict to it!
