Desperate Housewives Season Premiere

Attention contains spoiler info:

So moments ago the season finale of “Desperate Housewives” just ended on ABC. I actually have not followed this show for very long, beginning my tenure as a DH fan last spring. Over the summer I got their back-to-back daily episodes on Lifetime, and now I’m hooked in tightly.

Hi, Kyle MacLachlan!!

This season has started with some new mysteries and wrapped up some old ones.

Eva Longoria Parker has a bratty teenage girl.

Felicity Huffman is pregnant AGAIN with twins.

Marcia Cross is performing infidelity rituals with her divorce lawyer.

And of course Teri Hatcher is getting married.

If you’re reading this and think it sounds rather plain…well it is. Overall I thought the majority of the show was not very interesting, and I actually spent some time reading a history book instead of paying attention.

UNTIL the final minute of the show* This is where DH capitalizes on its greatness. Teri Hatcher’s daughter Andrea Bowen, (Character: Julie Mayer) gets choked liked rotweiller with a bad case of rabies. Then, she fell to the ground unconscious. This made me mad. I have said multiple times in conversation that Julie Mayer is one of the best characters on the show, even though she isn’t the lead.
Rock On Andrea Bowen!!

Her issue is related to a new family on the block, which also appears to have plenty more dark secrets. “Desperate Housewives” has had its share of families with dark secrets, but these new people look really sick and twisted. I am definitely watching next week, if for anything to find out more about poor Julie Mayer. Get well soon.

Review Rating: Good Stuff! (The last minute of the show made all the difference.)

QATFYG: Did Teri Hatcher actually hook up with David Spade a few years ago? I heard this on the radio once, and it sounds so implausible it must be true.


  1. It's another classic "whodunnit" moment for DH.

    I can't help but wonder who put the choke hold on Julie. Was it:

    A) Katherine Mayfair (after all, she is still quite pissed at Susan for stealing Mike back);
    B) Nick Bolen (the manipulative husband of new housewife Angie Bolen);
    C) Danny Bolen (the tightly wound and possibly disturbed son of Angie and Nick Bolen);
    D) Angie Bolen (the newest housewife, who also played Joey Tribbiani's sister in "Joey");
    E) Orson Hodge (pissed at Julie's father, Karl, who is having an affair with Bree);
    F) Dave Williams (he couldn't get little M.J., so now he is after Julie???)
    G) Someone else altogether?

  2. I can see what you were saying about the show up until the end; however, I do not necessarily agree with you. The beginning, while not packed with drama so to speak, was very vital. This was important to reorient the viewers with the past situations as well as allow the viewers to be introduced to the new characters. In addition, if the show gave too much drama in the beginning or in the whole episode, then the viewer might be let down later in the season when episodes were not as drama packed. I will have to say the episode was decent, but I might not be watching full time in the future.

  3. RE: Troy
    I think it would be G) someone else altogether. DH has a long history of not showing the criminals till later in the season. In addition, it mostly likely has to be a male. The shoes and clothing of the attacker were in a typically male style.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
