Tony Hale ('Arrested Development') and Matt Letscher ('Eli Stone') are about to find themselves in a few 'Awkward Situations.' The duo has reportedly joined the cast of 'Awkward Situations for Men,' about a British couple whose values clash with American locals when they move across the pond. Hale will play Will in the ABC comedy, Danny's (star Danny Wallace) new American Friend, while Letscher is set to play the "insecure boss at a smoothie place." Hopefully, none of the situations involve any loose seals. [Hollywood Reporter]

(S06E13) "The number one rule to a successful dinner party: keep discussion about your marriage to a minimum." - Mary Alice
Let's face it, all the Wisteria Lane residents need some one-on-one time with a shrink. From past episodes, we know that Tom and Lynette need to discuss their issues with the loss of the baby, Lynette's need for control and Tom's frustrations; while Orson and Bree need to cope with her affair with Karl and Orson being in a wheelchair and acting like a spoiled brat. This week, we can add that Gaby and Susan need to get over their need for competition and accept their children as they are; Bob and Lee must deal with their marital problems; and Angie needs advice so she can let new people in her life, aka Ana as Danny's new girlfriend.
Out of our favorite Wisteria Lane residents, only five met with a shrink and that includes Katherine, whom we finally (!) get news of.

J.J. Abrams has discovered his next "It" girl: British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw will make her American television debut in the upcoming NBC spy series 'Undercovers,' about a husband (Boris Kodjoe) and wife (Mbatha-Raw) who come out of retirement from the CIA. Across the pond, Mbatha-Raw has appeared in 'Doctor Who,' 'Spooks' and the stage production of 'Hamlet,' which also just ended its Broadway run in December. In the meantime, NBC announced this week that 'Undercovers' has officially been picked up, with Abrams on board to direct the pilot (more on that here). [Hollywood Reporter]

(S06E11) "No one knows who survived that terrible plane crash. Or more importantly, who didn't." - Mary
The plane crash that happened in episode "Boom Crunch" left us wondering if some of the Wisteria Lane citizens would make it alive or not. My predictions were that Karl, Celia and Mona would die. Some TV Squad readers predicted that Lynette would lose one of her yet-to-be-born twins because she threw herself in harm's way to protect one of the Solises kids.
Desperate Housewives' first episode of 2010 confirmed some of our predictions while treating us to the much advertised what if/ flashfoward episode of the series.
Which prediction was right? Answers and my two cents about the "what if" sequences, and more, coming up!

(S06E09) "I don't care how you go. I just want you gone." - Carlos to Lynette
As we all expected, this week's installment of Desperate Housewives marked the beginning of the war between Carlos and Lynette over the fact that she is pregnant and hid her pregnancy as long as she could so she wouldn't be fired.
Carlos may have won the first battle, but the war is far from over as Lynette will not go down without fighting as hard as she can. Who will win the war? Only time will tell. One thing is certain, it will take a lot of time for the Scavos and Solises to be the friends they once were.

(S06E08) "I could see shooting someone over you." - The judge to Mike
This week, Susan had to face the fact that she accidentally shot Katherine a few weeks back. Sadly for Susan, she had to face a judge who had humor when giving sentences and who allowed Katherine to say a few words before sentencing Susan. As expected, things didn't turn out the way Susan would have wanted them to turn out. However, Susan got exactly the type of sentence that offered us some fun war scenes between Katherine and her.

(S06E05) "You seem like a nice lady. Don't you ever feel guilty?" - The maid to Bree
This week's episode was pretty much what I call a "filler episode". Yes, there was some progress in the storylines but if someone missed this week's installment of Desperate Housewives, they won't be totally lost next week.
Even if "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid" wasn't the best DH episode so far this season, I did enjoy the dialog between Bree and the maid concerning Bree's affair with Karl, as well as Julie's return home after two weeks in the hospital, especially since her return meant that she would run into Nick eventually.

(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.

(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.

(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.

(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?

(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.

(S05E20) "Everything that ever mattered to me is gone." - Dave
Now that Edie's ashes have been spread out over the Housewives' lawns, the Wisteria Lane residents went back to their normal lives, which means awkward situations, lies, revelations, secrets, more lies, and Dave's mysterious and deadly plan.
