Although some things are best left forgotten Sam is determined to dig up the "goods" on herself. With a little help from her ex-boyfriend, ex-doorman, her too (make that two) few friends and slightly odd parents Samantha gets a once in a lifetime opportunity to become a bad-girl-gone-good. Indulge yourself in the ultimate do-over fantasy with the fresh new hit comedy SAMANTHA WHO? -- THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON starring Emmy(R) Award-winning Christina Applegate and a hilariously quirky cast of supporting characters including Jean Smart, Jennifer Esposito and Kevin Dunn.

Devil or Angel? After 8 days in a coma, Samantha gets to find out as she gets a once in a lifetime opportunity to become a bad-girl-gone-good. The Emmy® Award-winning Christina Applegate ("Married with Children," "Jesse") is a hoot as Samantha and she is joined by a strong cast of sitcom favorites - including two-time Emmy® -winner Jean Smart ("Designing Women," "Frasier," "24"), Jennifer Esposito (Crash, "Rescue Me"), Kevin Dunn (Transformers, "Prison Break"), Tim Russ ("Star Trek: Voyager," "Live Free or Die Hard", "iCarly") Melissa McCarthy ("Gilmore Girls," White Oleander,") and Barry Watson ("7th Heaven," "What About Brian?") .
I really, really enjoyed watching this series. And this comes from a woman who never watches T.V. Seriously, I hadn't even heard of this show until it was sent to me for review. Now, of course, I'm hooked (damn you ABC Studios!). From start to finish, I laughed my way through this show. Christina Applegate is very good at her portrayal of both sides of her personality - both are quite believable - but I did find myself rooting for the "angel" side of her that she wakes up with - especially if it means she will get the delectable Barry Watson back as her boyfriend! I was delighted to see Tim Russ back on T.V. again too - as Frank the doorman, his character is a lot like the Vulcan he played on Star Trek. I hope they show more of him in the next season as Sam's zaniness plays off his seriousness so well. The rest of the cast was just as superb - great casting job for all the characters. All in all, this series really is "must-see T.V." for comedy.
Five out of five binkies!
