Ok, I am 14 years old and I believe this is the best show I have ever seen, and I spend many hours watching tv. So last summer I would watch every episode start to finish. And even though I probably wasn’t allowed to see it, it taught me a lot in how women can present themselves and be strong. I am happy to find out it is back!

If there’s no strike by SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild), USA Network will air the new series in October 2008. For up-to-date news on the new “Starter Wife” series, casting info, etc…. go to the message board devoted to the series on http://forums.usanetwork.com

does anyone know the name of song/singer that was playing at the end of episode 3, “The Remains of the Snow Day”

i couldn’t catch all the lyrics, but the words were something like:

coming home as fast i can
don’t worry
don’t wait up for me
it’s alright

The final song in the show is
“It Makes Sense” by Emma Ejwertz.
