  • i wasnt certainly wasnt thankful for this episode..

    i didnt really like this episode at all and in my opiion the worst this season so far..

    i thought the scene with bree and karen and roy and keith parents tryed desperately to be funny bt instead just felt daft and badly written

    susan's storyline with lynette was ok but nothing special

    and renne having her own seperate kids table on the road outside was prety stupid

    overall nothing a very good week of desperate hpusewives which was a shame because the show has never done a thnaksgiving episode before so i was hoping that this would be great but i was sadly wrongmoreless
  • There's A Lotta Love in this one

    There's lots of loving in this one. Thanksgiving? More like Valentines Day!

    Once again its nice to see more of Lynette and Susan interact - Teri Hatcher does play an emotional role in this episode.

    Something is amiss between Renee and Tom but what could that be? Whatever it is, I believe it will upset the marriage of Lynette and Tom in a big way!

    Bree and Keith host the parents and it seems Bree and Keith are ready to marry. But there was an inkling that Keith's Dad has taken a fancy to Bree...

    The star of the show is Emily Bergl. For once we feel really sorry for Beth as she reveals her bad past. Its no surprise she is turning her back on her mother Felicia Tilman, who is slowly going mad.....moreless
  • Really great Thanksgiving episode!

    I really enjoyed this Thanksgiving episode, which was very enjoyable. The Gabrielle storyline is very heartbreaking, and it was very interesting in this episode. I can't wait to see what will happen next, and things aren't looking bright for the Solises.

    The storyline with Bree is getting a ilittle irritating. The fight between Keith's parents was good, but I hope that Bree moves on to a more exciting storyline.

    Susan, Lynette and Renee wiere interesting. Renee was so mean to the kids, forcing them to eat on the far end of the driveway! How slack!

    The episode has its funny moments, and all up, it was a great episode! Keep it up, Desperate Housewives, and I am mimpatient to find out what will happen next!moreless
  • Sorry Grateful

    Sorry Grateful was a perfect episode of Desperate Housewives and I gave it a ten because all the little story lines came together and the actors show cased a wide spectrum of emotion. We got to see how some of the characters really feel about their situations and also revelations and clues into what may happen in the near future. This episode definitely touched upon relatable circumstances for a wide variety of viewers. It was fun to watch Susan and Lynnette back and forth over baby Paige crying, Gaby as her usual self, Tom and Renee's awkward encounter and Bree getting mixed up with Keith's family drama, while Beth starts to really like Paul and see some truths about her mother Felicia. A little of every thing was in this episode which made it enjoyable to watch!!!!!moreless
  • A little predictable but still good.

    It was so emotional when Susan cried in front of Lynette and explained her everything about why she can't hear Paige cry... Overall I really feel bad for Susan this whole season. She's not herself and I miss her funny pranks and smiley face from previous seasons. I hope that these money problems work out well soon.

    Keith is still so in love with Bree and I don't know how Bree will react when he'll propose... That will be interesting.

    What was predictable though was how Beth is now suddenly starting to love Paul and Felicia probably won't have her on her side anymore... Well, we'll se.moreless
