Ode To The Desperates


Dear Mark Cherry,

You had an amazing show idea when you created Desperate Housewives.  I mean, really, what's not to love about suburban "housewives" getting drunk and mischievous all while wearing 5" Christian Louboutin's?  It's fabulous and you had me at Mike the plumber. HOWEVER as a loyal, long time viewer I must express my disappointment in the final season.

These ladies are funny, witty, silly and sexy.  The have fun and get into a little bit of  trouble every now and then.  They always have each others backs even in the stickiest of situations.  But, you have taken characters that we have all grown to love and feel as if we know, are best friends with, and turned them into boring, miserable, whiny bitches.

Also? this whole murder mystery thing? So not your thing. These people have killed numerous "victims" over the years and not even blinked an eye.  Then they kill this guy, who actually deserved  it, and they have been dwelling on it for a whole season?  Cop out.  Lame.

And you messing with Tom and Lynette?  Not cool.  I mean couldn't we have thought of something more clever?  Like the get a sister wife to help out Lynette and take care of Tom's "needs".  But making them separate and have all this tension, makes my heart sad. 

All i know is you are lucky, Mark Cherry, that I am so invested in this show. All the years I've watched I can't possibly give up on it now, but you probably planned it this way didn't you? Suck us in and then just coast your way out? As if this show never meant anything to you at all.  Shame on you.

And so help me god, if you end the season with it 1. all being a dream or 2. all of them in jail I will protest any show you have from this day forward.  Mark my word, Mark Cherry.

Good day sir, I said GOOD DAY!

  1. Oh I totally agree with everything you said! I'm starting to hate main characters because they're always mopey. I'm hoping for a big twist at the end that will make all this stupid drama worthwhile!!

  4. I stopped watching mid season last year because I couldn't take it anymore. I kind of regret not sticking it out until the end, but it was just getting too.... out-there for me.

  6. I couldn't agree with you more. I love this show. I always have. Believe it or not it means a lot to D and me. (When we 'liked each other' before we were dating he would come over every Sunday night and we watched it on DVD from the very beginning until he was caught up - and we've watched it together ever since). This season totally bums me out though. By chance did you hear the interview with Felicity Huffman on WNCI last week? She was talking about how she doesn't know the end of the show but Mark Cherry has had the ending in his head from the very beginning. So I wonder if he's playing the season out like this in order to make his original ending possible. All I can say is - it better be damn good...because this season is a let down so far.

  8. Amen, sister! This is getting ridiculous, I find myself having a hard time paying attention and almost sometimes just wishing it was over! But I have to know how it ends. I do think this season is a cop out.

    I LOVE the new layout and the side pictures are SO adorable--your fam is hot!
