  • Christine wants to start having sex so she goes to Whole Foods to pick up a guy. She ends up picking up a desperate guy who keeps calling her afterwards.

    This was my first time to watch this show. I really like Julia from Seinfeld! I feel like her son should be older in this show. For some reason Julia looks older in this show than she did in Seinfeld. I thought her character in Seinfeld was 35? It seems like she should have an older son in this show.....then again alot of people are having kids late nowadays.

    I think Julia is good enough to carry this show. I didn't like all the personal and sex stuff right at first........my first impression of the show was her ex walking in and needing to pee and then her talking about her sex life lmao.

    The show is SO lucky to come on right after 2 and a half men. I think it might make it mostly because of Julia!!

  • Just gets better

    Often a pilot is better than the actual series, but not this time!



    Christine tries to get one under her belt by picking up a guy at the supermarket. That's what everyone else does! So, in the interest of good sitcom writting, she picks up Andy Richter!



    It would be hard to explain what's funny about this show. You really have to watch it. It's everything that makes it great, the actors, the script, the timing, the surroundings...you'll see.



    I love the two pseudo-bitchy moms at Richie's school. They are trying to be nice but not too nice. They like Christine, but I don't think they like each other very much. If they do, it's in a kind of Odd Couple way...



    The chemistry between Andy Richter and Julia, sprinkle a bit of Supertramp and watch develop.



    I hope it keeps on going this waymoreless
  • A great way to start the season.

    After watching the pilot, I thought that this was a great show. I mean the pilot was okay but Supertramp was an even better episode. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a great actress and still continues to show her Elaine character even if she isn't on Seinfeld. The funny part was Christine is trying to find a man to sleep with and she finds the perfect but awful man to sleep with. This episode was absolutely funny. Mondays are my nights for comedy.moreless
  • In this episode, Christine is trying to move on and have a one night stand. Unfortunetly it does not work out the way it should

    8.5
    An excellent instalment of what is turning out to be a great show proving the first episode was a not just a fluke. Juila is turning out to be more fitted for this role than her Seinfeld one, and this episode certainly proves that. Anouther apperance of the school mums was great- yet not as funny as their first apperance.

    One criticism was the predictability of "Sad Dad" being the one to break up with Christine- a story which has appeared in many sitcoms and I was hoping that Christine could be more orginal. Besides that, a great, funny episode. I can't wait for more!moreless
  • Better than the Pilot, the second episode of The New Adventures of Old Christine explores Christine's needs and desires.

    10
    The second episode of \"The New Adventures of Old Christine\", was even better than the previous week\'s Pilot episode.



    I would have definitely liked Christine\'s unique \'to-do\' list brought through to this episode, as it was one of the highlights of the previous episode.



    In this episode, titled \"Supertramp\", Christine realises that she hasn\'t had sex in three years, while her ex-husband, Richard Campbell, mentioned that he had been. So Christine decides she needs to have a one-night stand, but she has no idea where to start. Her brother Matthew, who knows much more on the topic than herself, helps her. They go to the grocery store, where Christine tries to attract men. Unfortunately, she is pretty clueless on the whole topic, which makes for the most hilarious scene in the whole episode, because her way of attracting men is plain bizarre, with her extreme smiling, and peculiar shoulder-shaking, leaving me in fits of laughter.



    Eventually, Christine gets her hands on man she can have a one-night stand with. Little does she know, though, that he is one of the creepy parents of the kids at Christine\'s son\'s school, which the parents have dubbed \"Sad Dad\".



    When Christine tries to break up with him, however, he gives her a mix tape of her favourite band, Supertramp, forcing her into bed with him again.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Christine: I picked the worst person to have a one-night stand with. He's a parent at Ritchie's school! He's depressed, he's needy—
      Matthew: Sounds like you guys have a lot in common.
      Christine: What was I thinking, going to the supermarket to pick up a random guy for sex?
      Matthew: Out loud, it sounds foolproof.

    • Christine: (as she goes into the house) Well, I did it! I slept with [Stan] again! And this time he made me feel so self-conscious about the dirty talk.
      Matthew: Hi, I'm Matthew, your brother. And I believe you know your ex-husband, Richard. (moves out of the way to reveal Richard)
      Richard: Matthew was just filling me in. He didn't mention the dirty talk.
      Matthew: I didn't know about the dirty talk. Now I have to go call Mom back.

    • Christine: (on her one-night stand) I can't believe Matthew told you!
      Richard: Matthew didn't need to tell me. It's all over school. The fourth graders are doing their class project on it.

    • Matthew: I'm very uncomfortable being here for this.
      Christine: I need you. Going to the grocery store to pick up a guy seems too whorey to go alone.
      Matthew: But bringing your brother makes it wholesome?

    • Ally: Why don't you have sex?
      Christine: Well, I'd have to get a boyfriend who likes kids, and I'd have to make sure Ritchie liked him. And what if he has kids? Whose house would we stay at?
      Ally: You don't need a boyfriend to have sex, Peggy Sue. Have a one-night stand. Get one under your belt.
      Christine: You know you are the second one to use that expression?
      Ally: Ever?

    • Christine: Sex used to be my thing. God, in-fact senior year in high school I was a bit of a slut. That is what I was known for.

    • Richard: Mind if I use your bathroom?
      Christine: Oh.
      Richard: I got to make a pit stop, not a full pit stop just an oil change. I'm going to pee.

    • (Ali tells Christine where to get sex)
      Ali: Try the Whole Foods on Fairfax.

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The name of Christine's favorite rock band, Supertramp, also refers to how she feels by the end of the episode - she's had cheap sex with a needy guy - twice!
