Desperate Housewives

I'm in the middle of rewatching it all again. Just finished S6. Season 5 was slightly better than memory served me but Dave was a shoddy villain.
S6 was fantastically better than I remembered, I forgot how much I loved Angie. The only storyline that didn't do it for me was Katherine going crazy, they really ruined her character there.

It really needs to come back. Even without those 4, the lane could still have plenty of secrets and new desperates!

They should just retcon the last episode and have them all
move back.

I’m not sure there’s any story left for those 4 though.

I don't think it would work being the same show with other characters, look at Once Upon A Time.

Maybe a one-off special would be better. If the actresses can tolerate Teri Hatcher that is.

But Wisteria Lane could easily work as a setting for other housewives now. The main 4 moved away in the end (although they didn’t explain Susan’s future so she could come back) and the very last scene setup the idea new mysteries will always come to the lane...

I mean, you could still have ties to the old show - Bree’s kids could live on the lane with their own kids now for example.

This was priceless for a time until their quality started to noticeably decline.

Looking back, only the first season of this was truly great.

Great idea! :D

I just read that the actress who played her, Madison De La Garza, is the half-sister of Demi Lovato. :o

Don’t agree with this. i know the quality did dip towards the end but it was still a great show throughout!

The last season was so good imo. A real full circle moment.

I wish there would not have been any conflict with Nicolette Sheridan.
Just imagine the EPIC scenes between Eddie and Renée :lol:

Was the last season when this riot thing happened and SUsan needed a new kidney?

Renee was just a replacement for Edie so I don’t think they would have ever been living there at the same time.

I’m still mad they killed off Mike in S8 after making us sit through 8 years of circles with him and Susan.

S1 is easily the best season by far. I’ll always love S2 as well because I have such great memories watching it as it aired and it was still wildly popular then. The last few episodes of S2 are amazing!

Mind blowing tbh.
Season 4 has to be my favorite. Might be for sentimental value tho.
