  • Disopointing!!

    We all deserve to die was mostly another terrible episode of Desperate Housewives with plenty of ridiculous storylines that go know where. Lynettes storyline was once agian boring and very very pedictable but atleast irina has gone now( thank god)

    Brees story wasnt really much better even though it is good to see some drama between Bree and Andrew the whole sam story is boring and really unorignal

    Susan story was just stupid really howver i did enjoy mikes speech about susan to carlous it was pretty sweet. Gabrelles storyline was once agian just a stand alone story with nothing exciting or intriging going on but i was shocked to see that Bob and Lee had broken up

    Finally the fairview strangler is reveealed and if you dont no who it is yet prepared to be dispointed like i was. Another bad episode!!moreless
  • After a brief hiatus Desperate Housewives returns to form here.

    Almost a month since the last new episode, and more than that since the last episode that really blew us away. I had heard all sorts of predictions for who was the Fairview Strangler from Dominic to Orson, but this is one person I do not think anybody saw coming. This was shocking and I liked the ending because to me it is a bigger surprise when something happens involving a minor character than a major one.

    The other housewife storylines were good, but not really that funny or mentally stimulating. Just goes to show you that one good twist can make or break an episode.moreless
  • How to write a horror novel

    We All Deserve to Die (lyrics from a Sweeney Todd number?) had a handful of good scenes mixed in with overall storytelling that didn't quite come together.

    Good scene #1: Lynette apologizes to Preston about his scamming bride-to-be, Irina. Turns out Irina schemes into marrying people and taking all their money. Which we already knew. She just did it a bunch of times in a bunch of different countries. Which we could have guessed. This storyline was a lemon from the start, and we knew they couldn't possibly wed, so it was just a matter of time before this was all just over and done with. Thankfully it is. Huffman has a great scene letting Preston hate him, but really shouldn't he be thankful he was saved from making a huge mistake? I guess he's ticked cause he looks like an idiot now. And he'll never be with someone so hot again. I get it. It's humiliating. But still.

    Good scene #2: Mike's monologue about being in debt. This might not be appealing to those who've looked at Mike like this dreamy fantasy (which he acknowledges in the speech), but I found it honest and it was a nice moment for James Denton. But there otherwise wasn't much to the plot of Susan finding her husband stuff to do locally since his truck had been repossessed. Both the financial woes (Scavos ad nauseum) and Mike finding work, feel like roads we've traveled down before. Very blah plot.

    Good Scene #3: Carlos vs Gaby and the eggs. She wanted to be a donor for Bob and Lee, but Carlos said no. He doesn't own her body, but "I pay for the clothes it wears, the massages it receives, and the implants it will one day require. If I don't own it, I'm at least a major stockholder!" He reasons. Lol, that's just good dialogue. I appreciate Gabrielle's good intentions, but she misunderstood her role as surrogate mother (to say she isn't) and the stress and frustration was too much for Lee, who left Bob. This was a surprising move, and sad. But I have no doubt the two will reconcile before season's end. That's really the best stuff this episode brought to us after a bit of a break, and that's a shame, because DH is in a rut right now. But that doesn't mean there wasn't anything to like about this entry.

    The situation with Bree and Sam and Andrew is still the most interesting thing going. Andrew is still trying to bury this guy (do we believe the story about dropping out of school to tend to the sick mom?), but Sam fired back digging up dirt on Drew stealing wine. This got him fired, but Bree admits she'll hire him back eventually because this is just "what they do" (why did that bother me so much?) There was some vinegar sabotage at an investor's banquet, and while all fingers point to Andrew, Orson insinuated Sam could have framed him. Or has Orson framed Sam? I'm diggin' this, I am.

    There was also a clever spin with Patrick's arrival, who when he met Danny, pretended to be an aspiring author with writer's block. Pat basically laid out his story under the ruse of his fictional characters and Danny gave him suggestions for what these people should do. Inadvertently, Dan has suggested killing his own mother, and getting himself kidnapped. That reads really funny, I know, but trust me, this is kind of clever. And finally I have to talk about the serial killer on Wysteria lane, who is finally revealed. It's that kid who hangs out with Preston, who is the sometimes friend of Danny. I can't even remember his name, he's that insignificant. Nor do I care, really. Was this a surprise? I guess so. So why didn't this have any emotional impact at all? Cause killing Irina was awesome- she sucked. And the coffee shop girl? Who cares? Fugly Julie? I can take her or leave her, I guess. The surprise killer is a soap opera staple and certainly bread and butter for Desperate Housewives, so I'm sure many will have no problem with this at all- no matter how contrived.moreless
  • Seriously, why have these episode ratings gone down recently? It's much better than Season 5....

    I really liked this episode, and the last two or three have really picked up.

    Lynette was great, again, portraying a fantastic mother. The scene between her and Preston towards the end was quite touching.

    It was nice to see that Gaby wants another child as well. I was hoping for a scene however, with her telling Carlos she wanted a son, as he did last year.

    I've guessed the identity of the strangler for a while now, and thought it would be who it was. It was good, however, to see how he caught his next victim and I have a feeling Lynette might become his next one when she discovers who he really is.

    Some good storylines developing for each housewife; especially Bree. I love the dynamics of the relationship between her and Andrew.

    Why these are getting lower ratings than usual, I don't know.moreless
  • Well done

    I didn't see the promotion. I find abc's promotions in general over the top and I usually ignore them. So the look on the greasy kids face was intense. I'm still thinking about it. This is desperate housewives so I imagine there is something else going on with this kid psychologically. I just hope that it is something obscure that has not been done anymore. Making him younger just makes more of an impact. We often think of teens as trouble but still relatively innocent. If there is something inside them like this, they don't act on it until much later. I did not like the way the Patrick storyline went. It was predictable. I ignored those two scenes. Patrick would not kill his son......moreless
