Raising Hope: The Complete First Season DVD Review

Synopsis: Emmy® Award-winning creator Greg Garcia (My Name is Earl) brings you this hilarious and endearing comedy about the joys – and pains – of parenthood and a dysfunctional family. A one night stand becomes a life-long commitment when twenty-three-year-old Jimmy Chance inadvertently impregnates a wanted felon and decides to raise Hope (aka Princess Beyonce) on his own. Jimmy, together with his family, face play dates, family photo shoots, rock star dreams, vasectomies and more in the uproariously irreverent, critically acclaimed first season of Raising Hope.

Review: We miss My Name Is Earl.  We watch it in syndication all day like mental patients.  We just love it so much.  When we heard that Greg Garcia had a new comedy show, we freaked!  Raising Hope isn't Earl..but it stands on it's own two feet as a fantastic show.  The first season even features cameos from Earl, Randy, Joy and Crab Man (not as their Earl personas) and the Earl character Kenny is even a main player in the cast!   One of our favorite episodes, the one with Jason Lee (Earl) as Smokey Floyd, includes a great Earl reference for us crazy fans.   Raising Hope is a fantastic consolation prize for fans and is FULL of laughs.  Every character is well written and the show is absolutely a MUST own.

The special features on this DVD include: Pilot commentary, Unaired Network Pilot, Don't Vote for This Episode - Extended Episode, Adorable Stars: Meet the Hopes, Moments with Mrs. Chance, Taking Chances: Shooting the Season Finale, Gag Reel and Deleted and Extended Scenes.

Interest Range: Comedy, TV Series
