Several have said that this is not Season 1, however, I think they are getting confused. The original Starter Wife was actually a 5 episode mini-series and was released under the title 'Starter Wife'. It was then made into a regular television series beginning with Season 1.
So, if you're looking for the beginning of Molly Kagen's story, this DVD collection is going to disappoint because it picks up after the mini-series. For that reason it seems as if it's not season one, but it is.
If you need the beginning of the series, do as another reviewer mentioned and add the DVD set entitled 'The Starter Wife' (no season designation) to your queue.
As a Starter Wife Fan, I am possitive this is season two. blockbuster had season one available for a while but it was always a long wait, but today a new season one was available... Because it is season 2.... If you want to see season one, you must add simply Starter Wife.... no season to your queue....
