Were she and I at odds?
No. It would be okay if we were but no.
I wouldn't be watching the show if it weren't for Vanessa Williams being on it.
My daughter got very attached to Vanessa on Ugly Betty which we would watch together (and she also lost Wanda Sykes from The New Adventures Of Old Christine) so we switched over to Desperate Housewives.
But the show's been on for how many years and I'd never watched it prior.
I think the actresses are all better than the material. Well, except for the one who plays Lynette.
But if you've missed it, I'm not too impressed with the scripts.
As I've regularly noted, Teri Hatcher has to create Susan pretty much all by herself. The scripts really don't develop the role, it's Teri doing all the work.
On Sunday's episode, Tom showed up in a jogging suit, with teeth whitener. It took Renee (Vanessa) to tell Lynette that Tom was obviously seeing someone. Lynette got their daughter to move the iPad around so she could look at Tom's apartment and when it passed the window, she could see the pool in the courtyard and Tom talking to a 20-something very curvy woman.
So Renee and Lynette go to the workout class that the woman teaches. It's murder. And after Lynette talks to the woman. She tells Renee she's not worried because the woman's so stupid and Tom couldn't be interested in her.
Then Tom shows up and Renee quickly walks away.
Lynette discovers Tom is dating that woman . . .'s mother!
Tom says they'll talk about it in therapy on Thursday.
Susan wanted to get into an art class but the man hated her art. She finally convinced him.
Bree's daughter showed up to announce her marriage had broken up. But she had an idea to sell things on the internet.
Bree would later discover that they were. Well they weren't exercise equipment. She was attempting to figure out how to use it when Renee walked in (no reason was ever provided for Renee showing up at Bree's test kitchen) and congratulated her. Renee thought she'd broken up. She had broken up with the detective. Well she was using a sex swing. A what?
Bree ended up being supportive in part because her daughter needed something to focus on to deal with the divorce and in part because (I think) she admired her daughter's business ability -- her daughter's business was a huge hit.
Gabby had some funny battles with the head of the PTA.
And that detective?
He pops up in the last minute at his job. Another cop comes up and asks him if he's still upset about Bree shooting down his marriage proposal. Yep. He wants revenge. The guy drops some new missing person's photos on his desk.
Guess who has the photo on top?
Gabby's step-father -- that Carlos killed and Gabby, Carlos, Lynette, Susan and Bree buried.
