    Well, I didn't like the fact that we had so much of Renee in the series finale. Could've been more of Mary Alice instead.

    Exactly! Renee was such an unimportant character for 1 and a half seasons, but she got such a big part in the series finale!!!


    And now that I think about it, I have quite mixed feelings about the finale. The ghosts watching was nice, but the rest of it wasn't that good, and I was expecting it to be better than that.

    I still hope I am gonna grow fonder of the episode ... it was an emotional ride for me but there were many boring scenes for sure.

    I absolutely loved the series finale upon first viewing, because it got me going at all the right times. Tearing up, I mean. Some time later, I still have to recap that finale for the wiki, and can't bring myself to do it because of all the boring scenes. XD It was still a lovely tribute and capping for the show.

    As for Renee, I have absolutely no problem with her being featured that much, because she was a hoot, as usual. But if she were integrated into the final poker scene, I would hate that! Those four ladies are the core of the show, Renee would be misplaced there. I too want to believe she and Bree got closer after the other ladies left, and then they befriended the new Susan of their group, Jennifer, who it turns out was keeping season 6 of Desperate Housewives on that box, and she was ashamed anyone would find out. The ladies forgive her poor taste and they all become poker-playing besties.

    I would have replaced Katherine's return with Mary Alice scenes or Karen's funeral.

    Mary Alice scenes - yes, Karen's funeral - no way. We've seen enough funerals, it was good that they did it off screen.

    I loathe what they did with Katherine, especially taking into consideration that Dana Delany wanted her to still be gay. Kind of a slap in everyone's face. But I'm still glad we got to see her again, even though they felt the urge to replace her previous happy ending with a new one. The first one was much better, albeit rushed. Robin rocked!

    I was hoping for a wedding cameo (as a caterer of course) mentioning her and Robin being so happy in Paris.

    That would had been lovely, and it would have made sense. Natalie Klein herself could have offered Lynette a new job if they wanted her to get one so bad.

    Exactly. But they had to turn Natalie into a store bitch. LOL

    This board is deaddd


    Anyway hi i just finished watching the show last night and i cannot find any active forums on this show so i'm just posting here.


    I lovedddd watching this show so much! It gave me something fun to look forward too. So just in case anyone is lurking... I was wondering- who are your favourite characters/favourite housewife?

    I love them all but i would say Bree and Lynette.
    I love Gaby too, Susan would probably be my least favourite.

    Other characters: loved loved Bree and Andrew's relationship, Katherine, Julie... MJ

    Who was your favourite couple?
    Mine: Lynette and Tom!! (mad they separated them!)
    I also liked Bree and Orsen but they ruined them...
    Gaby and Carols are HILARIOUS
    Susan and Mike = amazing

    What are your favourite storylines and seasons?
    What do you think about the 5yr jump?
