'Desperate Housewives': One Last Plot Twist-er

After a long absence, "Desperate Housewives" returned to the airwaves last night ("Welcome to Kanagawa") and the aftermath of the twister was revealed. (And, by the way, what did that title mean anyway? Was there ever an explanation of "Kanagawa"?) We had been left with fates unknown for: Carlos (left...

'Desperate Housewives': Tornado Mixes It Up

A twister hit Wisteria Lane on Sunday night in a cliffhanger episode. But this much we know: Survivors include: Bree and Orson (and baby Benjamin); Katherine and Adam (though now their marriage may not survive); Susan and Mike (likewise on their marriage -- if Mike doesn't get clean and Susan...

'Housewives': Oh, the Addiction to Sweet Secrets

Ahh! Secrets - and more secrets - keep things interesting on Wisteria Lane. And last night's episode, "A Distant Past," had the beginnings of some secrets - but also several "reveals" and revelations: The gutsiest was when Mike revealed that Barrett was a drug dealer. That brave declaration took away...

'Housewives': Onboard Babies to Outboard Hit Jobs

Lynette moving her mother's suitcases from the trunk of Lynette's car to her sister's, then driving off. 3. Bree lying to arrange for Benjamin's circumcision. 2. Gaby hitting Victor and...

'Desperate' Drama

Wow. For all of the funny, outrageous moments that "Desperate Housewives" is known for, there was one stellar scene that reminded us why "DH" is considered a drama. Whether it was the writing, acting, directing or editing - or probably a combination of all of these - the moments when...

'Desperate Housewives': More Secrets and Lies

Last night's episode, "Art Isn't Easy," was a lot about politics and, of course, alliances and persuasion. New neighbors Bob and Lee added a sculptured fountain to their front yard, which upset Susan because the noise bothered hubby Mike. Odd, isn't it: some people like white noise and say it...

'Desperate Housewives': Feeling Itchy

First of all, Teri Hatcher should sue the writers for making Susan not just idiotic this episode, but so utterly ham-handed about the concept of having gay neighbors that they dumbed-down her character about 6 levels. Really, awkward Susan is an obvious standing storyline for "Desperate Housewives." But Susan as...

More 'Housewife' Charades

Susan decides to throw one of her infamous charades parties, which all the housewives first try to avoid out of general horror of such a icky, middle-aged, suburban event. But then it occurs to everyone that such an event -- and lots of free-flowing wine -- might lead Smug Katherine...

'Housewives'' Perfect Pie

It's only been two episodes since she moved onto Wisteria Lane, and already Dana Delaney is proving to be deliciously wicked. That whole thing last week when Katherine suggested she wanted to cut down the beloved tree in Bree's backyard? Ah, just a warm-up. This week she went for the...

'Housewives' Update

Okay, in what immediately made me think of Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction," Edie has succeeded in further wrecking Carlos's life in the first episode. That whole hanging herself thing in last year's "Desperate Housewives" finale? All carefully orchestrated so that Carlos would find her at the "perfect" moment (complete...
