If Mary Alice was alive for just the first season?

    What if Mary Alice didn't die in the pilot episode, but they pushed her death to the end of season 1, but she still did the narration from her POV, would a full season of getting to see her in the flesh at least a full year before her succide have been good?

    No. Mary Alice is the series' narrator. If we'd had an entire first season of flashbacks that featured her in every episode, and then in the second season she'd take up on that narrator role and start being featured less and less, that would be frustrating. Not to mention that, at least in season 1, it'd take away that special feeling we get when we are allowed to see her on-screen again so rarely.
