Has anyone gotten their hands on the first ep of the mini series -The Starter Wife starring Debra Messing, Judy Davis and Miranda Otto that aired in the US recently? I've got the ep, but am still yet to watch it.

Was just looking for thought on this by those who may have seen it.

I watched the first part yesterday, and it was quite good.

Lots of aussie actors in it! Even Australian Idol judge Mark Holden makes an appearance, which was completely surprising.

Judy Davis is excellent in this mini-series (so is Miranda Otto for that matter, its quite a different role for her).

Already have the next part downloaded, will hopefully watch it tonight.

well I finally watched the first 2 eps (didn't realize what I had downloaded was eps 1 and 2. Gotta say, I'm really liking it. I've always admired Debra Messing, ever since her stint on Ned and Stacey, and it's great to see her headlining a wonderful little mini-series like this.

I loved playing spot the aussies in this too - Mark Holden, Jane Hall and Kate Kendall to name a few.

Downloading parts 3 and 4 as I write this!

I have seen all 6 episodes and loved it.

Debra, Miranda and Judy were all excellent, as was the rest of the cast.

It was pretty light fare, but it was nice to simply be entertained for once. Nice comedic moments, nice romantic moments and nice dramatic moments. It really had a good tone.

DILLIGAF Kate Kendall had a very small part of a socialite who snubbed Debra's character when she was dumped, and then when she got back into the social scene tries to suck back up to her. But it was a nice small part i suppose.

Hey ! This was good ! Did anyone else see it?? And who knew it was filmed in Australia so we get to play "spot the Aussie actor" ?

And what's with 2 decent new shows (Psych and this one) on 2 consecutive nights on Ten? :shock: What is the world coming to?

Interesting (?) trivia - Both Psych and Starter Wife featured 2 of House's wannabe doctors ... cut throat bitch and Taub ...

:P
