    I never really considered Alma a villain - more of a victim. Gloria, on the other hand was a villain. The actress was great but didn't make for a believable villain. S3 reminds me of what an awful job they did hiding Marcia's pregnancy, but at least we got more Edie in S3.

    The show had some great villains like Paul Young or Martha Huber but Alma and Orson's mother are just annoying.
    I’ve been saying this for years, that S3 was a decline and had so many random characters and far fetched moments. But nobody ever agrees with me

    You're definitely right about that. And Marcia Cross' absence due to her pregnancy in the second half of the season made things worse.

    Yes, more Edie was definitely a good thing!

    I agree with everything except for the 'Susan and Ian' storyline. I liked most of it, especially when Susan met Ian's arrogant butler.

    Other positives:
    - the supermarket episode
    - Gaby coaching young girls for the beauty pageant
    - Austin was great eye candy

    Bang! is the supermarket episode

    The Orson storyline is better when binged. But when it first aired, it felt really confusing.

    Mike getting amnesia was ridiculous and I didn’t like the Susan love triangle very much.

    Lynette was the star of the season followed by Edie

    Ian was one of the worst love interests for a main character ever.

    Whatever floats your boat. He sounds so stiff and posh.

    I'm currently in the middle of season 4 and the lineup of housewives is so great. Bree is back, Edie is still there, and two great new housewives arrive (Kathrine and Lee).

    Just watched the tornado episode and it's so intense, great TV! I still remember that it aired in early December 2007 and we had to wait for a whole month for the follow-up episode, not knowing what had happened to the Scavo family in Karen McCluskey's basement.

    Felicity Huffman’s scream when she sees McCluskey’s house is devastating.

    Just finished season 4 and I liked it better than season 3, despite the fact that it was shorter due to the writers strike.

    What was really stupid though was the fact that Orson started sleepwalking and told Julie that he ran over Mike while being in such a state. Was there really nobody who had a more realistic idea as how to reveal that secret? It seems that when it came to Orson, the writers always went with very poor storylines.

    The time jump was a great idea, and Gaby's kids were definitely the best thing that come out of it.

    I have very few issues with S4, definitely my joint favourite with S1. The writers strike almost did it a favour and didn't drag the mystery out too long.

    I re-watched seasons 5 and 6 over the past few weeks and definitely prefer the latter to the former.

    Dave was such an annoying villain in season 5, I couldn't stand him. I didn't like Mike and Katherine as a couple either. Susan and Jackson, on the other hand, were cute together.

    Season 6 is the best season for me since the first 2 ones. I liked the fact that it contained two mysteries instead of just one (the story of the Bolens and the Fairview Strangler). The only negative things were Katherine going crazy over Mike and Orson annoying Bree (and the viewer).

    Katherine was such a wasted character by the end, they really ruined her. I was hoping the Bolens stuck around for a bit longer.

    I Think this is due a rewatch.
