Official I Hate Susan Meyer-Delfino Club November 9, 2009

Get in line here!


I’ve never been a big fan of Susan.  The big doe eyes and grasshopper-like legs don’t really do it for me.  So, here’s where things are on Wisteria Lane: after Angie filled Susan’s ear with doubt on what Katherine’s alibi was for the night of Julie’s strangling, Susan went to the cops.  They didn’t take her seriously, but a female detective from Susan’s high school days sort of did.  Well, enough to hear Susan out and then go befriend Katherine because of their mutual dislike.


As usual, Gaby stole the show with the homeschooling issues.  Just when you thought she just didn’t have the patience to do it, she goes and admits that it is ruining her relationship with Juanita and cries on Carlos’ tie — but mostly she cried about the fact that he wouldn’t let her keep the housekeeper.  Next week, she tries desperately to get Juanita into Catholic school.  Now, what the hell happened to their niece, Anna?  She has disappeared for the past couple of episodes. 



“My Daughter is Dying” Sunday October 5, 2009

ABC is really bringing on the emotional storylines!  Though Desperate Housewives doesn’t pull off the tragedy of it all quite like Brothers & Sisters.


Here’s my thoughts on the Kitty storyline: they’re killing off all the Repubs!  Last year it was Tommy and they sure hyped it up that Robert was going to die, now Kitty has lymphoma.  Also, they must be trying to win an Emmy for either Calista Flockhart or Sally Field and cancer or death is always a top pick.  Nora already has my vote; I was bawling my eyes out last night! 


DH — Gaby makes that show.  That’s all I have to say.  She provides the necessary comedic relief and she has the best spunk.  Here’s the skinny on Julie’s killer if you missed it: everyone suspects the new kid, Danny Bolen.  So much so that his parents have hired an attorney and encouraged him to ask Gaby’s niece to lie and say they were together as his alibi.  But to make it the new, mysterious kid is too easy!  I’m wondering if it could be Katherine since she’s gone over the edge and she used it as a chance to visit Mike and come on to him, but that’s nuts even for her.  Most likely, it’s the guy whose baby Julie thought she was pregnant with, and I don’t think that’s Danny.


P.S. Regarding B&S, I hate loathe despise that Ryan Lafferty.  He needs to go away soon, but he’s obviously wreaking havoc on Ojai Foods first.

Q&A on Season Premiere of Desperate Housewives September 27, 2009

If you didn’t see the premiere of Desperate Housewives, you may have a few questions about what happened.

Q: Who did Mike marry?

A: For the second time, Mike and Susan tied the knot.

Q: In light of that, how did Katherine take the news?

A: Long story short, not well.  She’s going a bit crazy, in fact.  She held Susan’s dress hostage near a bubbling pot of spaghetti sauce, she turned up at their wedding and demanded a public apology after the ceremony, she’s been staring at Susan a lot from across the street, and she basically admitted to being completely unglued.  More to come, as she clearly hasn’t accepted things and will continue making things difficult for them.

Q: Lynette is pregnant with twins!  What more did we learn about the upcoming babies?

A: Poor Lynette.  She couldn’t be any less thrilled about babies 5 & 6.  So upset is she that she is turning other pregnant women against motherhood and sobbed to Tom that even though she fell in love with the other 4 as soon as she found out they were coming, she doesn’t love these just yet.  The big question is whether or not she’s going to go through with this.



Where Dexter, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters Left Off

On Dexter: Rita and Dexter got married, Dexter killed the assistant DA Miguel Prado after sharing his secrets with him, Rita’s pregnant, Deb is dating CI Anton, and Quinn was still sexy.


On Desperate Housewives: Carlos’ slutty troublemaking niece is moving in with him and Gaby, Lynette is pregnant (with twins), Mike and Susan reunited after Dave kidnapped Susan and MJ and Mike rescued them,  Mike got married to someone and we don’t know who, Bree is attracted to Karl but is being forced to stay with Orson so he doesn’t have her arrested for insurance fraud, and Edie is dead.  Look for a new family with a past to move in.

Endlich wieder Serien-Mittwoch auf ProSieben

On Brothers & Sisters: Kitty was in a car accident while riding with a man she has a crush on that she met on the playground, Kevin is working for Robert and trying to shield his sister from Robert’s political drive, Tommy is staying in Mexico after committing fraud at Ojai, Julia took Elizabeth and moved to Seattle when Tommy left, Rebecca and Justin are engaged, Justin got into med school, and Sarah is back at Ojai.




Putting the Premieres Into One Post July 9, 2009

How does that sound?  I can’t keep bouncing back and forth talking about all the different networks and the offerings they will soon have for us, so I’m putting all MY shows (and some that I know are favorites but that I personally don’t watch) down right now.




Sopranos Whore the New Desperate Whore? June 29, 2009

Drea de Matteo, best known for her role on The Sopranos as Christopher Moltisanti’s big-haired fiancee Adriana la Cerva, has been cast as the newest vixen to grace the streets of Wisteria Lane.


Adriana was shot in the woods after tattling to the Feebies in season 6, so we can only hope for her sake that if she does experience an exit from Desperate Housewives, it’s far more pleasant than that one!
