Storyline

Little Steppington is a small suburb that should be calm, cozy and quiet. But it is not lucky with its inhabitants. Instead of quietly killing time knitting, they kill each other. Vegetable cutters and large-caliber weapons go into action. Under the guise of a women's charitable society, classes of yoga and a circle of amateur runners, secret super-agents hide themselves, ready to eliminate a couple of competitors for the sake of another injection of Botox. Feeding their husbands an industrial dose of Viagra for breakfast and turning a quiet British suburb into a kind of slum where policemen do not go.

awesome show
26 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I was channel surfing and ended up on Oxygen when this was on. It's housewives meets mafia how these women control their town. Odd twists and good acting make this a highly entertaining piece of the BBC. One of my favorites, second only to Xena: Warrior Princess. Once upon a time, Two best friends come home to find their home vandalized. From then on they take a vow to stop crime in their own vigilante style. Camilla goes to far, and it results in two gangs of housewives battling it out in suburbia. All the little details are funny, from how the 'gangmembers' get their own parking spot at the grocery store and ridiculous discounts through intimidation. I would highly recommend this show.
