MISTRESSES Volume One DVD Review

Mistresses: Volume One DVD

MISTRESSES: Volume One will be released on DVD tomorrow, June 9, 2009. The DVD includes all 12 episodes from season 1 and 2, in addition to cast interviews and ‘The Making of Mistresses’ featurette.

Some of you might already know that I am a huge fan of Mistresses so it should come as no surprise that I am really excited that a DVD including all the episodes is getting released.

I got an early look at the DVD itself, and I have to say this is perfect for fans of the show that want to watch the episodes over and over again. And for those of you who have not yet jumped on the train, I have to ask, what are you waiting for?

Mistresses is one of the best written shows about women, their love lives, their affairs, and friendships. The show follows four 30-something friends as they deal with their complicated and intense lives.

Siobhan (Orla Brady) and her husband, Hari (Raza Jaffrey) are a happy married couple, but their sex lives becomes all about making babies, which leads Siobhan’s eyes to wonder on a different man.

Trudi (Sharon Small) finds new love in the arms of Richard (Patrick Baladi) after losing her husband during 9/11.

Jessica (Shelley Conn), “the wild-child,” discovers a new lesbian experience with Alex (Anna Torv), one of her clients about to get married.

Katie (Sarah Parish) deals with the death of one of her patients, with whom she was having an affair. This leads to even more complications in her life she didn’t expect.

All of their stories evolve in unexpected and exciting ways. You find yourself caring and rooting for these characters to succeed in their lives. But they are not perfect and that’s why you can relate to them. Every single character has their flaws and they make mistakes, but I think the friendship between them is what makes the show jell.

Season one starts off with really great stories and season two expends into new exciting stories. The writers of Mistresses have created three dimensional characters that we care about, and the actors are bringing them to life beautifully.

This is one of the best shows that I have seen, and I really recommend you check it out. While it might not appeal to men so much, I think women will really fall in love with the characters and stories surrounding them.

You can get the Mistresses: Volume One DVD on Amazon.

Mistresses Synopsis: Set in a world where friends have become the new family, Mistresses follows the lives and loves of a group of girlfriends whose lives have taken very different turns. Successful lawyer, Siobhan, seems to be living in wedded bliss with husband, Hari, but her eyes begin to wander when her sex life becomes less about ‘making love’ and more about ‘making babies.’ Trudi, a 9/11 widow, finds comfort in the arms of a man, Richard, after spending six years grieving her husband’s death. Meanwhile, Jessica seduces her boss and pursues Alex, one half of a lesbian couple, while Katie, a well respected doctor and the rock of the group, begins an affair with a married patient. Their tangled web of love and deceit envelops all four friends with life-changing results.
