(S06E04) "Even the people we love keep secrets." - Mary Alice

Mary Alice probably told us twice a season in her narration that people on Wisteria Lane had secrets. This week's Desperate Housewives main secrets involve: the Bolens are afraid Danny will spill out their secrets and we learn a bit more about Angie's scar; thanks to Andrew, Susan learns some of Julie's secrets; Lynette tries to hide her secret from Carlos but the body changes pregnant women experience are making it more difficult for her to hide her pregnancy; Bree lies to Katherine so that the latter doesn't discover the affair with Karl.

Somehow, an Oceanic plane is going to crash on Desperate Housewives

Oceanic plane
Yes, you read that headline right: an Oceanic Airlines plane is going to crash on Wisteria Lane.

One of the big ratings stunts on Desperate Housewives this season will be a plane crash that happens in the ladies' neighborhood that will affect everyone on the show (when a plane crashes in your neighborhood that's bound to happen). But a source at ABC tells E! that the plane will be an Oceanic plane, in a nod to Lost. No, it won't be the same plane, Oceanic 815, just a plane from the same airline. So don't expect time travel or polar bears running around Gabrielle's lawn. Although a weird crossover like that might be fascinating to see. Of course, I wonder how this billboard from FlashForward could possibly be right if this happens.

This isn't the first time the airline has shown up on a non-ABC show. The pic above is from FOX's The War At Home.

Desperate Housewives: Never Judge a Lady by Her Lover

Desperate Housewives(S06E03) "You wanted to look pretty for your ex-lover." - Carlos to Gaby

As advertised on most TV sites over the past few weeks, the cutie gardener and Gaby's ex-lover is back! John Rowland, whom we last saw in season four married to a rich daddy's girl, returned to Wisteria Lane this week to cause chaos.

Is John still married? Did he try to seduce Gaby or another Wisteria Lane citizen? Answers coming up after the jump, along with my take on John's return, which was first rumored to happen in the season five finale.

(S06E02) "She's like the nicest girl in the world. Who'd want to hurt her?" - Wisteria Lane residents as they learn about Julie

It's the day after Susan and Mike's wedding, but also the day after Julie got attack by an unknown assailant. The Wisteria Lane residents quickly gather on the scene and try to make sense of it all. Who would hurt the nicest young adult female on the street?

As expected, fingers are quickly pointed in Danny Bolen's direction. But did he do it? Detectives, as well as the Wisteria Lane men and us, loyal Desperate Housewives viewers, are on the case.

Desperate Housewives: Nice Is Different Than Good (season premiere)

(S06E01) "Just last month, she took something of mine." - The woman who didn't get Mike about the woman who did get him

Finally! We learned who Mike married in the season finale and, luckily, we didn't have to wait long to get the answer, as it was revealed within the first minute. Then again, if you read ABC's official description for the fourth episode of the season over the weekend, they spoiled the first scene for you, as they clearly stated whom Mike didn't marry.

I don't get why ABC couldn't be cryptic in their description or at least wait until tomorrow before releasing it, especially since they have been trying very hard to keep the name of the bride a secret.

Gone Too Soon: Firefly

Firefly
When I first started exploring this project, there were a few shows that I knew were going to be important to hit. This is the first of those. Firefly was Joss Whedon's sci-fi western series. The show mustered disappointing ratings in its short eleven-episode run on FOX.

Since then it's gone on to near mythic cult status. There was such an outcry of support from its loyalists, the Browncoats, over its cancellation that the producers made a feature film sequel. That movie, Serenity, answered a lot of questions about the future fate of the cast. Unfortunately, like the television series, it couldn't find quite enough people to show up and tune in to warrant a sequel. Nevertheless, the few morsels of Firefly we did get are enough to prove that this is one of the most innovative and enjoyable series ever to hit the airwaves.

Torchwood star could be moving to Wisteria Lane

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 31st 2009 6:03PM
BarrowmanShow of hands: how many people here watch both Torchwood and Desperate Housewives? Well, your dreams might be answered. Torchwood star John Barrowman revealed on a British talk show this week that he is going to Los Angeles to meet with the producers of the ABC drama for a role. Though he didn't say what role it would be.

Maybe he can play the same character he plays on Torchwood, add a little sci-fi to the show. Wouldn't that be unbelievably wild? That's why it would never happen.

I would love to live next door to the ABC House

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 3rd 2009 7:38PM
ABC House CommercialI know it's been out for a couple of weeks or so now, but the latest ABC House promo got my attention, so I went back and watched it. I remember networks used to do things like this; having characters from different shows interact, and I've always had a thing for crossovers. Hell, I watched Laff-a-Lympics growing up just because of the crossover aspect.

Of course, the primary difference with this one is the McSteamy v. Hurley ending; which I completely agree with. These kinds of creative initiatives help give the network an identity and give fans something to keep the shows in their minds through the summer. And there's so much more potential available here, and even on other networks to play with similar ideas. How about a game show with Dr. House competing against Dr. Bishop (Fringe)?

Desperate Housewives - Season 5 finale

(S05E23 / S05E24) "Isn't it just easier to shut down your hoo-ha until he gives in?" Gaby, offering Lynette her method for getting Tom to give up the idea of going back to college


Well, season five of Desperate Housewives has come to a close. I must say, this season sort of meandered towards the beginning, but really gained steam towards the end. The final episode brought a few stories together, including psycho Dave's, and ended with some good stories heading into next season.

(S05E22) Those of you tired of Tom's mid-life crisis, raise your hand! I'm sure we are a lot of people with one hand raised right now. I know that a lot of men go through it and that it can last really long in real life, but on TV, can we not have Tom go through his mid-life crisis for an entire year?! A few of you mentioned in comments last week how Tom was getting annoying and that he needed new storylines or else. Will Tom find his way before the season ends?

Desperate Housewives: Bargaining

(S05E21) "This is going to come out of nowhere but ..." - Jackson to Susan


As you know, actor Gale Harold, who plays Jackson, had a terrible accident last fall and had to be written out of the show so that the actor could recover from his injuries. The writers decided to have Jackson get a job outside of town. Except for learning that Jackson asked Susan to move away with him, we haven't heard much from the character and his relationship with Susan since then. My brain doesn't recall Susan clearly stating that things were over between Jackson and her, and we haven't seen her date since Jackson skipped town. Therefore, I've sort of been thinking they were doing the long-distance thing or still wondering where things stood between them.

When the actor got back in shape and was able to return to the set, the writers wrote him back in, and this week's episode marked his unexpected return. Jackson arrived with a question, helped give us answers as to where his relationship with Susan stood, and gave Dave a good reason to be scared.
