Desperate Housewives, This Season

November 11, 2010

I haven’t really decided how I feel about Desperate Housewives this season.  In some ways, it’s been more entertaining than the past few, with the addition of Vanessa Williams (love her!) and the return of Paul Young.  But the individual story lines seem a bit disjointed.  Where are the great, over-arching plot lines that bring us back each week?  The best one this season is Gabby’s daughter mix-up, but even that is just so-so.  And Brie is dating a younger man.  Really?  That’s it?  I think it’s time to get rid of Brie.  Susan’s problems are just sad, and Lynette is dealing with her mother-in-law.  Where are the nosy Susan and sly Lynette?

This is a show I will probably not be dropping any time soon, but I do hope it improves.  But let’s face it, when a show makes it to its seventh season with mostly the same main characters, it’s hard to find new plot lines.  We may be seeing the last (or nearly last) season of this show.

And P.S. When are we going to resolve the cliff-hanger from last season?  Am I remembering correctly that we never saw what happened to the serial strangler?

UPDATE: I wrote this before watching the most recent episode.  The episode was fine, but the ending was great!  Finally, a good twist!
