    Now that our beloved series has ended, it'd be wrong just to part ways like that. Eight years of laughter, drama and mystery is waiting to be explored again, but now with the knowledge of how it all ends.


    Feel free to join in on the Big Rewatch: Desperate Housewives. Every week we discuss 2 to 3 episodes: you can give an elaborate review, or just a list of your favorite moments.


    I say we let the finale sink in a bit and kick off our review Wednesday. Until then, you can do some suggestions for this thread or share your excitement about watching all these episodes againTongue out

    Are we going to discuss all of the episodes in this thread? Or are we going to create separate threads (for example, "Desperate Housewives Episode 1x01: Pilot Episode Rewatch Discussion")?

    I think create seperate threads. Some people might want to comment on the pilot when the rest of us are on episode 6 or 7, for example.


    We could leave a rating out of 10 for each episode at the end of our reviews and get an average for the season then at the end of it. Or we could rate each housewives storyline out of ten and see which housewife had the best episode.


    These are only suggestions, you dont have to go along with them.

    I agree, separate threads would work best. I'm trying to approach this rewatch with a fresh eye, seeing if I have a different perspective of things now that I know how it all ends up. I am looking forward to this, it will be interesting to go back to the beginning of the story and view it in a new way.


    I like the idea of rating each episode out of 10 and then giving the whole season an average, and then maybe doing the housewives like you said, and at the end of each season we could crown a "housewife of the year" .

    My suggestions: we start the re-watch next week, as opposed to right away this week, and do 3 episodes a week. That'll give us 60 weeks. XD Now wouldn't it be nice if we went through with it, huh? Stay here for another year? We can create discussion threads either for each episode or for each three episodes, your choice. What do y'all think?

    I really want to do this as well, but I just feel weird watching it, knowing how it all ends. Its weird knowing that all the housewives have moved on . At the time I watched it I really loved the end, but now, every time I think about it, I get this weird feeling. :/ Like, I'm not ready to let go, but they all moved on. Right now, I don't want to watch for a little while. Even seeing reruns on tv give me this sad feeling. Maybe I will join you guys a little later, probably while your watching the end of season 1/ beginning of season 2.

    I think we should do it separately for each episode, but that's just me.

    Fine by me. Episodic threads and then at the end a seasonal thread, then?

    Yes, I should say so. Given days? Like, say, Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, for example? Or do we personally spread three episodes throughout the week ourselves?

    I like the ranking of the housewives idea, as Ive never really been able to decide which one I like best, even now that its ended, maybe this will help make my mind up

    I'll be here, but I dont want to watch any episodes for a while, I just want the finale to sink in for a while. But I hope this forum doesnt slow down like other cancelled shows. I need this forum.
