Desperate Housewives: There Is No Other Way
Basically, a show suffers from Providence Syndrome when it finds the need to place funky, stringed instrument plucks during humorous scenes, as if to say, "hey everyone, this is a funny scene so we're going to throw some of these plucky notes at you." You know the tune: blump blump...blump blump! Watch just about any scene featuring Susan and you'll hear that tune.
Anyway, I digress. On to the show.
Did I miss the episode that explained Paul's military and martial arts training? How the heck could a guy like that
so easily overcome multiple thugs, at least one toting a blade? At first I was disappointed that the writers let him
off so easily, though his line to Mrs. Huber made it all worthwhile ("Now how did you know I love
Finally there were some decent scenes with Susan's story, with the crazy "nurse" (who didn't pass her nurse's exam) and Karl putting Mike through uncomfortable moments. Though once again it's shown how much of an idiot Susan is, basically admitting to the "nurse" that she committed insurance fraud. Dumb dumb dumb.
Some of what Gaby said hit home with me, how good people are put through the ringer in order to impress someone enough to be a parent, but any cheap slut can make a baby in a back alley. However, as unfair as it looked in the adoption office, you have to admit that with Gaby and Carlos' history, it's hard to think a baby would find their environment stable.
Great quote by Gaby: "So, how's this work? Do we flip through a catalog or something?"
You can see where the Van De Kamp story is going, and I like the possibilities. As far fetched as it seems for Bree to actually reform her son, it seems she's dedicated to the task. The question is: how much more dedicated is Andrew to making her life a living hell?
As for the Scavos, Tom is a whiny, insecure baby.
Quote of the episode: "Let's cut this bitch open."
