    Ok, the first time I checked this show out was back in summer 2008 when I watched the pilot, didn't like it very much back then. But now when I got to know these amazing actors from their newer projects I became curious and started watching again last month. Lana Parrilla is magnificent in here, Miriam Shor is great too. I like the storylines and while not the best show ever - the storytelling is very decenet and offers this interesting sneak peek into the 70's in America.



    It was not the worst thing 'Swingtown' got cancelled and we only have 13 episodes, it works better like that - as this little retro mini-series with great colors and costumes and amazing cast :) I still have 9 episodes left. 7,5/10moreless
  • This is a most refreshing show.

    It has all off the primary and basic ingredients for great long lived series. This show is getting better with every episode and its so a series for the now the past as well as the future.

    I'm absolutely liking Tom and Trina but my favorites are Susan, Roger and Doug. The show inspirited me too look up some oldies and I want to thank the cast as well as the producers and writers for giving the public a show that keeps the seventy's living on in our hearts and our lives.

    These series are up there with shows like Star Trek and Stargate.moreless

    The show probably would be better if it would be set in present days, would have at least couple pretty actors...

    Now I could write whats bad about it... everything... I repeat everything... total waste of time... not funny, not catchy... actors not pretty... and that list could go forever... only one good thing about it... is idea... I think if you would do such a scandalous show... do it right... not like this... you can see some money have been invested... and screen writers and directors wasted them... Its really nothing more to say about this show just kids... dont even bother...moreless

    I thought this show was awesome too... underrated is a good buzzword for swingtown. I am bummed that we will not get to tune to this neighborhood anymore. I loved those pool parties.. This would be a great pick-up for HBO HBO could really take this show to the next level. the characters are rich and complex. The storyline, sets and costumes really take you back to the day. I would HIGHly recommend this entire series. at least watch the first episode, you will want to watch the second.



    the friendship between the new neighbors is is a nice plot element as both couples learn from each other in a variety of ways from different ends of the spectrum. Which culminates in the swinging couple becoming more together with each and the "prude"ish couple yearning for more action.moreless
  • Swingtown is an Awesome show. Where can I purchase The 1st season? I am very unhappy that I heard that it was cancelled.

    I honestly believe that it should be brought back.

    It was insightful and influentual, the writing WAS Phenomenal I loved the character developement and the plot developement was superb. I can count a few times where i was on the edge of my seat with excitement!I know that there are many different directions it could take, and I really want to see them! Seriously!



    Hey!!!!

    HBO!!!

    Do Something!

    C'mon!!!



    I also believe that it would do much better in the HBO/Showtime Market.



    The writers would have more freedom to express what they wish.

    Call me if it comes back I want to work on it!

    I control a production crew that could help! LoL DCmoreless
