Desperate Housewives Review: A Desperate Life

The women of Wisteria Lane have played their last poker game. Tonight’s two-hour series finale of Desperate Housewives had just a bit of everything with a birth, death, wedding, scandalous trial and much more. I’ll admit that after eight years of watching perhaps one of television’s most iconic shows, I wasn’t looking forward to saying farewell to Fairview. Sure, it’s definitely run its course, but as you all know, goodbyes are never easy.  While this final season has had its fair share of ups and downs, I thought that Marc Cherry and company gave us a very satisfying ending. I wasn’t left needing more, but instead, only realizing how much I would truly miss Desperate Housewives . No other show compares and it’s hard to believe that there will ever be one that is able to do what the Wisteria women did by making the suburbia life seem so flawlessly unforgettable, sexy, hilarious, scandalous and even murderous.

Desperate Housewives 8.22/8.23 - "Give Me The Blame" / "Finishing The Hat"

"Kiss Them Goodbye" has been the motto of the final season of Desperate Housewives since January, and tonight, after eight years, we finally DID kiss them good-bye. Personally, I thought the series finale – which steered clear of the big intense and shocker moments and instead focused on tying up storylines – was both fitting and satisfying. How does the finale start? With someone who has been a part of the Housewives crew since the very beginning: Mrs. McCluskey. When she tells the girls that she’s starting hospice service because the doctor thinks Roy can’t take care of her, they offer their services instead. Mrs. McCluskey is hesitant, but eventually agrees. How does the finale start for our other Housewives? Gabrielle is reading the "sports" section of the paper, aka, hiding proof from Carlos that the trial is not going well for Bree. Susan is trying to keep the sale of the house secret, since she hasn’t told the girls she’s moving yet. And Lynette is trying not to freak out when Penny calls and tells her Jane’s gone and that Tom wants to see her. Read More... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/gcoKfoz9g_8/

‘Desperate Housewives’ Series Finale, ‘Give Me the Blame; Finishing the Hat’: TV Recap

Friendship. It’s a Hallmark-y kind of word. But it’s a powerful force, in some ways more powerful than love. It’s the force that’s driven Desperate Housewives for eight seasons. And it’s the force that prevailed in the final episode. //blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2012/05/13/desperate-housewives-series-finale-give-me-the-blame-finishing-the-hat-tv-recap/?mod=WSJBlog

Desperate Housewives Review: Dirty Laundry

Try as I may, my eyes can’t seem to ignore the sometimes trashy magazines that are placed so immediately close to the checkout lines at the grocery store. I can honestly say that the cover is the only thing that I’ll read off of those things. This week, Fairview’s newsstands were filled with magazines with Bree’s plastered face and a title that read:  "Housewife Airs Dirty Laundry in Murder Trial". Seriously, it’s no wonder how quickly assumptions are made as some gossipy residents gave Gaby just a piece of their minds concerning Bree’s innocence.

Desperate Housewives 8.21 Recap "The People Will Hear"

I remember when news broke that Desperate Housewives would end its epic eight year run in May, and I remember thinking that the date seemed so far in the future. Time flies, doesn't it? We're already up to our last episode before the series finale, and I couldn't be more excited to see where we're going to end up. Anyone else? (By the way, I apologize for being a bit MIA, as last week I was away on vacation and unable to find time to review. But we’re back, so let’s dive in!) We find Bree attempting to deal with her arrest and impending trial, while Trip grills the girls and tries to instruct them on the particulars of what they’re going to face when they’re called to the stand. As Trip leaves, he shares a moment with Bree that doesn’t go unnoticed, and while Bree admits that she does like Trip, she also convinces her friends she has the situation under control. Susan, meanwhile, brings Julie to birthing classes but finds herself more focused on Bree’s murder trial than helping her daughter relax. Julie is having her own preoccupied thoughts about Porter who is late for class, and when Porter finally shows up, Julie gets upset at him despite the fact his lateness was due to a work shift (I appreciate Porter being a good father and showing up, but maybe he should’ve stayed at work as he gets about two seconds into the birthing video before he faints.)

‘Desperate Housewives,’ Season 8, Episode 21, ‘The People Will Hear’: TV Recap

The second-to-last episode got busy tying up story lines. As for Julie’s baby, Porter acknowledges he’s not ready to play any significant role as a dad. Susan offers to step in, by moving with M.J. to Julie’s school where she can finish her dissertation while Susan helps raise the baby. So that’s Susan off the lane. //blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2012/05/06/desperate-housewives-season-8-episode-21-the-people-will-hear-tv-recap/?mod=WSJBlog

Desperate Housewives Episode Recap: “Lost My Power”

On this week's episode of Desperate Housewives , Bree starts to fall for her lawyer as the date for her murder trial nears. Lynette accepts a date from Tom's boss, Gregg. Susan tries to build a soap box car with MJ so he won't miss out on father-son activities. Gaby and Carlos fight over a wealthy old widow. And Renee starts to get more suspicious about what Ben knows about the accusations against Bree. BREE Pre-trial hearings begin for Bree's murder trial, but, because this is Desperate Housewives, Bree is more concerned with flirting with her charming lawyer, Tripp, than staying out of jail. Tripp, as it turns out, could not be more different than Bree. He's sued the NRA three times, he talks about prostitutes and sex casually and uses the word "sucks" over lunch — how absurd! Although Bree is a "champion of conservative values," Tripp learns about Bree's slutty phase when the prosecution lists many of...  //www.tvguide.com/tvshows/desperate-housewives-2012/episode-20-season-8/lost-my-power/100118?rss=episode-recaps

Desperate Housewives Review: Powerless

The good news was Desperate Housewives finally returned tonight with a strong brand new episode. The bad news is there is only ONE more remaining episode leading up to the series finale. (By the way, typing that last statement was not easy.)  From one housewife to another, we were shown just how difficult it can be to give up power in a number of situations and life events. It was certainly a solid hour placing our favorite housewives in predicaments that required responsibility and the willingness to change.  Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2012/04/desperate-housewives-review-powerless/
