I’d taped the last episode of Desperate Housewives on Sky+ the other day and I’d forgot about it until tonight. When I put it on though, here is what I noticed…these day’s, 90% of the storyline is utter pish.
Here is what happened when I put it on,
The voiceover at the start comes on, the bit that tells you what the moral of tonights story will be in that really patronisng sounding voice.
I watch about 3 scenes worth relating to the Scavo family because I like the character of Lynette.
A scene starts with Susan (Terri Hatcher) and her new boyfriend in a restaurant. I fast forward. This is about 4 scenes worth of stuff, a good 4 minutes of completely useless storyline that I could not give a fuck about because I stopped liking her character about 2 seasons ago.
Ad break. Another 3 mintues down the drain.
More Scavo family scenes which I watch. Literally about 2 minutes worth.
Carlos and Gabby in some womans big house (because he is suddenly a masseur now). Fast forward. 4 minutes down the drain.
Brie at her kitchen. Fast forward.
Ad break. Fast forward.
So it continued like this for the rest of the 48 minutes or whatever it is that Sky+ had recorded for me. I must have watched about 10 minutes all in of the whole programme.
I like the new D.H concept. The +5 years concept was brilliant. But here is my question, how is Desperate Housewives still managing to be shite right now? I tell you why, because they are still putting a stupid amount of script time into Teri Hatcher’s character Susan Meyer. Her character is about as interesting and forward moving as bacteria growing on a prostitutes shite in a bush in the East End of Glasgow, and she is about as fun to watch as well.
If it doesn’y pick up I’m throwing in the towel. I’ve given years over to this programme. Lost got deleted fae my tape list about a year ago when I realised even the writers had no fucken clue what they were doing with it. D. H could end up the same.
