Storyline

The story of Bible-thumping Baptists, beer-swilling bar trash and everyone in between in a small Texas town, contrasted with the appearance-driven world of Hollywood and the hysterical comedy and tender poignancy that come from learning to be yourself and love the family you have instead of the family you want.

Love the show...Love Del's writing
15 August 2008 | by mgwmarygay888See all my reviews

I have waited for the show for forever...so glad it is on. I have been a fan of Sordid Lives (the movie) for years and LOVE Del Shores' writing. Anyone who is a TRUE fan will love the show because if you have watched the movie as many times as "some of us" have... the characters are like family and you can't wait to see what happens next and what Del has written and how the actors "bring it". I too wish ALL of the actors from the movie were in the show... but we will learn to love the new actors just as much. I cannot get the LOGO channel and have to drive 13 miles into town to watch at a friend's house. Wish I could watch it on-line and I hope they make a DVD of the first season for purchase. Already can't wait for season II. Keep it up Del... and can't wait for Southern Baptist Sissies (the movie). So get back to work!!! LOL
