ABC (ended 2012)
She might be a fan favorite but I don't like her, my mom doesn't like her, my brother doesn't like her, none of the people I know that watch the show like her. In fact my friend's fiance was rather bummed out that "fatty didn't die" (his words, not mine).
It's not the actress I don't like, it's the character. Something about her just bugs me.
Yeah I think that's part of the reason why I dislike her so much....the constant food references and things of the like are just so irritating and quite frankly, rude and cliched. I do agree people should stop picking on her for that though, because she IS a good actress and a cute little girl.
Yeah, I have to admit, Juanita is a waste of screen time in my opinion. Her scenes are good for bathroom breaks. I would never in a million years consider her a main. She's simply scene material for Gabby. But at least they show her regularly (much to my dismay), unlike the other daughter that I think the whole show forgets exists until she pops up every 7 or 8 episodes. Every time she pops up I nudge my girlfriend and say "Oh look honey, they remembered her again. How lovely." Yes, the "how lovely" was sarcasm.
Sorry but Celia is rarely shown. And MJ has made very few appearances this season. There are times when i totally forget about him lately and he's the best little kid on the show!
|Celia looks like Danny DeVito she is my favorite kid on the show!|
It seems we have slightly veered off topic so let me sail it back to port
Now would be the best time for Dana Delany to return. She could either show up at the funeral and pay her respects or appear and comfort susan towards the end.
And Paul Young should come back. He and Mike were connected via Zach. Speaking of which - where the heck is he?
I can't believe they didn't have MJ in this episode, but they probably didn't want to make it more heartbreaking.
I hate that shows feel the need to have a shocking death before the end. Why can't the show end in a good place? I like Terri Hatcher's idea of Mike showing up alive in the finale... this show is crazy and unrealistic, so it would be fitting. After all the danger that Mike has gone through season after season, he gets killed by some lame loan shark from a lame storyline initiated by Ben, a character no one cares about?
I wasn't that moved by the episode, so it wasn't even that well done.
I hope they actually use this death to propel the other stories, and to give the characters some nice moments, at the very least.
"If I touch that womans feet, you're going to have to Euthanise me."
Season 8, I think, has been the strongest season of the post time jump seasons. Ever since the Halloween episode I have been looking forward to the next episode more than I ever have.
Bree/Kearn/Roy: I really enjoyed their story this week. Its nice to see Kearn with an ongoing storyline and I think Bree is doing the right thing in trying to help Kearn. Loved the Suicide-Pie. I kind of thought there was something wrong with the pie when I first saw it and Bree eating it was brilliant and her reaction to it. Brilliant. And Kearn and Roy finally accepting the entire situation with a kiss. I really hope this storyline doesn't get stupid meaning unbelievable in the coming episodes.
Gabby/Carlos: I liked the story but was a bit filler. The only highlight for me was Juanita on the roof. I knew she was going to be ok but it was good. I don't know how I feel about Carlos quitting his job. I will need to see where this goes to see if its a good thing of=r bad thing.
Lynette/Tom: 23 Years. Seriously. As I recall they were married 9 years in season 3 + 5 season and the time jump would make them about 20 years married!!! Correct me if Im wrong. I liked this storyline. I actually like Jane. I kind of compair her to Edie. Edie and Susan faught, Jane and Lynette are fighting. When Tom suggested to finalise the Divorce, I actually teared up. I love these two and a divorce kind of closes all hope for a reconcilliation.
Renee: I know some say Renee is a waste of a character but I love her. She adds a bit of comedy to a scene.
Susan/Mike: That scene on the porch was touching. I knew Mike was going to die and through the whole speech he made I was tearing up (something I dont do). I thought the shooting was shot perfectly (the camera shots not the gun shot), the slow motion and then into the montage. The montage was perfect, loved seeing those scenes again. And when they sped up twords the end I knew it was coming and then Bang. Teri was amazing. Some said a while back they felt it was more her screaming insteqad of crying but I loved every moment of it.
Season 8 has been on a roll and I can not wait for next weeks episode.
