Marc Cherry promised that season three of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES would be much improved, and after four episodes, this TV addict whole-heartidly agrees. Between Carlos and Gabby’s hilarious battle of one-upmanship, (the two of them remind me of Itchy & Scratchy), Lynette paying off a little league pitcher to go easy on her son, the creepy Orson Hodge and Bree’s reaction to Andrew’s method for making ends meet on the street (No Bree, he wasn’t doing yard work!) — this season i shaping up to be the best one yet. Oh, and how could I forget, the main reason why this episode was fantastic, the absence of Nora. Let’s hope this is a trend that continues for further episodes to come.
Following DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES is the surprise hit of the season, BROTHERS & SISTERS. Why am I enjoying this series so much? It’s essentially EVERWOOD minus the teenage angst (don’t get me wrong, I miss Ephram and Amy). The show doesn’t have a flashy mystery or jaw-dropping special effects It’s simply an interesting show about a very complicated family.
Finally a warning to Lauren Graham fans. Her ‘role’ on tonight’s STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP is miniscule. Lauren players herself, hosting the weeks episode of STUDIO 60 and her minutes on screen can be counted on one hand (possibly two fingers!). That said, the episode was fantastic, and definitely worth your time. Just don’t expect to feel like you’re in Stars Hollow.
