  • Desperate Housewives is back.

    Okay, it may not have actually gone anywhere but the Desperate Housewives that was nominated for Emmys and was being hyped all over is back as the show is once again in top form.

    There is not a dull moment on Wisteria Lane as every character has something exciting going on. DH's ability to go from comedy one moment to a serious dramatic sequence the next is unbelievable. You feel for the characters as well as laugh with them; very few shows can make that claim.

    This episode further unraveled the mystery of Dave Williams as we now know he has unfinished business with Mike. This is Season 1 Lost quality of writing and I cannot wait for the conclusion.

    Elsewhere Bree and Gabrielle were their usual amusing selves and Steven Weber (Wings) and Rachael Harris (Notes from the Underbelly) were great in their guest spots as well. There is very little to criticize in this episode. it truly was exactly why I watch this series.
