Raising Hope: The Complete First Season..Available Now!

On September 20th Raising Hope:  The Complete First Season was released!  Here is the scoop in case this show is new to you...

Life at the Chance’s will never be the same when Jimmy comes home with an unexpected gift. Follow
one ill-equipped family as they navigate through the pleasures and annoyances of raising a baby. The
Emmy Award® nominated** series, RAISING HOPE Season 1 comes to DVD on September 20th from
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment packed with exclusive featurettes, deleted and extended
scenes, a gag reel, commentaries and the un-aired pilot never shown on television.

Created by Emmy Award® winner Greg Garcia, Raising Hope stars Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, Garret
Dillahunt and Shannon Woodward. Cloris Leachman guest-stars as Maw Maw.
A one night stand becomes a life-long commitment when 23-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 – his Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman), his mother Virginia (Martha Plimpton), and his father Burt (Garret Dillahunt) – face play dates, amusing family photo shoots, rock star dreams, vasectomies and much more in this uproariously irreverent, critically acclaimed first season of Raising Hope.

Have you seen this show yet?  This was my first time watching and it is a hoot.  It is definitely "quirky" and more than a little out there but that is what makes it stand out.  It has similar humor to My Name is Earl and it sort of reminded me a little of Roseanne's (which I still LOVE) humor as well.  I really like Martha Plimpton and I think she shines in this show.  If you are looking for something funny and out of the ordinary to watch pick up Raising Hope today.  It is on sale on Amazon right now for just $23.49 which is a savings of more than 40% so snatch it up today!
